New MacBooks Have Begun Shipping?

In a "Company Flash" bulletin issued on Monday, analyst Rich Gardner said he expects the Apple to introduce its fall line of notebooks "within weeks."

"Field checks confirm that shipments of new MacBooks have begun, with a sharp production ramp planned for September and an introduction planned for early October," he wrote.

Gardner's predictions seem to fall in line with Daring Fireball's October 14th predictions.

Of course! I just ordered my MacBook Pro this afternoon! I probably won't feel TOO bad, though, since I got a free printer, a free iPod touch, $200 off for educational discounts, and about $1600 worth of Adobe software for $300. (Yes, I know that CS4 is being announced next week.)
