New macbooks, or Mac books pros? Didn't they just redo the macbooks?

Both should be getting a makeover. Macbooks go to the Aluminum case like the Macbook Pros.

I thought the macbooks already had their make over with processor upgrades, and the MBPs got a little faster processors and more video ram?

That's just a 'facelift' to get more people to buy new ones until the aluminum ones come out, which I did. Apple is going towards the Aluminum tract for all their computers (iMac, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, etc) and it is finally time to get the Macbook on the bus too. It's easy to see what they could do to the Macbook, but I'm not sure how they'll improve the Macbook Pro (make it thinner? something totally new? who knows). Guess we'll see in a month or two.

eh I hate being over here, you fall behind on shit. I didn't realize the aluminum ones weren't out yet. I was looking to get one for the wife since it's time for her to upgrade to a mac that can handle 10.5.

I MAY upgrade when the next gen MBPs come out, depending on how beat up mine is when I get back.

I sold my white 2.4 Ghz Macbook (bought @ end of Feb/sold end of June) while I could still get basically what I paid for it back. Could be hit or miss once the aluminum ones come out, people would pay a premium to hold on to the throwback in good shape or they just wouldnt give a damn anymore. However, until the new ones come out, I'm sitting here without a Mac and I miss it a lot more than I thought I would.

hmmmm. May have to hold off on upgrading the wife then. I mean she has a G4 12"laptop so anything would technically be an upgrade. But I would like to wait until the ones styled after the MBPs come out.

Is anybody running leopard on a G4 processor. Just wondering how it will run on my wifes powerbook, its 512m of ram, and a 1.5g processor. Leopard asks for 512m of ram and only 847mgh processor. Thinking about upgrading her.

Seems the new Macbooks/Macbook Pros are coming sooner rather than later. inventory is being dwindled, parts have been ordered. Only on page 7 of this 30+ page thread, so not sure what all is being talked about yet.

Nice. I would honestly LOVE to see another 12" laptop just with all updated internals.

Latest rumors on the Macbook: One piece aluminum case, GLASS multi-touch trackpad (not sure how I feel about that one), larger screens (14"-15.6"), thinner and rounder (more like Macbook Air), also talk of Apple doing their own custom chip set (guess Apple is getting tired of Intel's integrated graphics = suckage).

Not sure about the glass track pad.
Bigger sizes. Bring back the 12" one.
thinner and rounder.

Forgot to say WHEN they figure the new ones will be out. Those two sites say Sept, but I personally expect them a little sooner than that. Expect an announcement either this tomorrow (July 29th) or next (Aug 5th).

Next-Gen Macs Will Not Use Intel Chips, Some Say

Apple may be moving away from Intel.

The blogosphere is buzzing about rumors the next generation of MacBooks will ditch the familiar Intel chipsets. Apple's been building Intel-based computers since '06, when it announced it would stop using PowerPC processors in favor of Intel.

Now sources, such as AppleInsider, are reporting "people familiar with (Apple's) plans" are saying change is on the way. Apple's options could include going back to its own proprietary chipset or it could strike a new deal with a manufacturer such as NVIDIA or VIA. AppleInsider is careful to point out "This should not be confused with the primary CPU, which will continue to come from Intel."

Why the Switch?

So why the sudden switch? Theories point to everything from a need for Apple to set itself apart from the competition -- two execs have made recent comments about "state-of-the-art products" on the way that will catch competitors off-guard. Others suggest Apple's move away from Intel is an attempt to use a chipset that uses less power.

We can expect to hear something official in the next month or two, when the new MacBooks are revealed. Stay tuned.

Well, nothing today.

Gay gay gay gay lol at least I got the top options on mine, so hopefully it won't be that bad. I kinda wish it had a fingerprint reader though.

Not sure how I feel about the white on aluminum. Kinda looks weird. Just proves that the new one IS coming.

So I was just told today that the new ones will get the touch technology like the iPhone's have. If that is the major difference then I'm not too upset about getting mine.

Seems the Apple Event announcing new iPods will be Sept 9th. We'll probably hear about the updated Macbooks/Macbook Pros that day as well. Getting closer!
