Hints Dropped at Host of New Apple Offerings

If a detective were hired to investigate whether Apple is planning iMac, MacBook, and Mac mini upgrades, the evidence brought forward by Apple Insider would likely give our detective reason to believe that Apple has something up its sleeve.
A trio of online advertisements that appear to have been published prematurely by one of Apple's international online stores suggest it's only a matter of days before the Mac maker takes the wraps off of new families of familiar products.
This hint, coupled with news that Apple stores are receiving boxes of new signage not to be opened until direct orders are received, is enough evidence to convince many that a major announcement is more than just in the works. An announcement now seems imminent.
Assuming the ads were indeed commissioned by Cupertino-based Apple, they'd corroborate a series of forward looking hardware reports first published by Apple Insider over the past several months.
But are we psyching ourselves out for nothing? Since I would be reluctant to base an opinion on mysterious, unopened boxes and foreign Google ads, it would take something like... maybe scores of resellers being sold out of iMacs and Mac minis and awaiting new shipments this week.
Oh, wait. That's exactly what's happening.
In recent weeks, Apple has informed its direct and indirect sales channels of constraints on MacBooks, iMacs, and Mac minis. Many of the company's resellers are also sold out of iMacs and Mac minis and have been given restocking estimates of October 7th and 9th for those two products, respectively, suggesting a formal announcement regarding these Mac hardware refreshes could come as early as this Tuesday.

Doesn't Apple typically hold a press event to introduce new products when there is a design refresh? Since there's been no press invites, could this simply be an internal hardware refresh? More powerful and cheaper is always good, but that may be all it is. The ad-sense ad could easily be a spoof.

I thought they did a hardware refresh for the white Macbook to like 2.16 ghz and there was not press mention of it. Am I wrong? or does memory serve me right?

I just love technology! But I gets tired of chasin it! If I buy anything it would be a new macbook myself. Bought a IMac 1 1/2 years ago and only got on it for two weeks... just been setting there since my neck surgery... what a waste....
My little white macbook save my life though those days!
