Apple's back-to-school sale is likely to begin next week
But the mysterious announcement may simply be their back-to-school sale. Previous back-to-school sales have been announced between May 25 and June 5, so it wouldn't be a stretch. Unfortunately, their 'sale' is really more of an opportunity to offload aging iPod Touch devices. In past years, they've offered a free 8GB iPod Touch to purchasers of a new Mac. Maybe this year they'll offer a discount on the iPhone 4 or iPad 2?
We're still hoping that all the secrecy, combined with Apple's May 19th retail anniversary, mean that we're going to see a new product. But that could be anything from their iCloud music service, to a new device. Slash Gear suggests that it might not be a new product at all, but the unveiling of NFC-enabled registers. We're hoping for something a little more exciting.

Been waiting for this. It's not surprising that they are running the same thing again.

Could it be they are finally admitting their products are overpriced,have minimum upgraded features year after year and that they are also in many cases have faulty features like antenna,leaky screens etc?? Suppose that will never happen,it'll no doubt be the next phase of grooming suspectible fanboys into buying their next product........or perhaps they are finally going to unleash the humancentipad on the world!!!!!

get a life, and try a real computer like apple. Apple makes the most reliable and some of the fastest and best looking products on the market! I would never spend $1000 for a plastic win pc junk thats going to be filled with viruses and slowdown in a month, plush crashing all the time. Im just guessing that you want one but cant afford it so your deciding to diss apple instead??

The poster above (#3) is a troll!
Anyway, I think they may annouce the redesign of the MacBook Pro. I read about a mounth ago that the laptop i going to get a complete external redesign. Although I really love the current look I am very interested in where they bring this product.

They already upgraded the MacBook Pro about a month ago.

It possibe that I am wrong but I am almost 100% sure that they are going to redesign the exterior look of the MacBook Pro.
The artical was on CNET and I remember them discussing how the model just got a full hardware upgrade to the intel i-series processors.
I guess we will wait and see!

Isn't it funny how fanboys call anyone not under Steve Jobs control 'trolls', haha very inventive! It reinforces the fanboy igornance phenomenon to no end! and i'm sure though that Apple actually does consider everyone not filling their bank accounts a troll

No... I called the above poster (#3) a troll because he came on this board without any valid point and just bashed apple because he hate them. Not because he has valued arguments. So... YES... that is what qualifies a troll in my opinion!

Actually, I am partially wrong... Let me correct myself... the poster did have valued arguments but failed and became a troll once they started to call out apple users as mindless "Fanboy".
