New MacBook update on its way

without comments

Update: This didn’t take too long, the minor MacBook update has been confirmed. No word on LED backlighting unfortunately.

Whether you are a Mac user already or are planning to give one a try, it’s only obvious that any plans for upgrading or getting a new machine revolved around the release of OS X Leopard. We are hearing from various sources however that the Apple MacBooks, which account for a large percent of Mac computer sales, are about to get a hardware update that could be announced anytime between now and November 15th.

I only thought it would be appropriate to advise to hold off your buying plans for just a little while and avoid getting pissed by buying a new machine that will become an “old model” in a matter of weeks. It’s believed that only the MacBook (and maybe the Mac Mini) will be getting hardware upgrades, this does not affect the MB Pros. Details are scarce at this time but an upgrade to Intel’s Santa Rosa platform seems imminent. Other rumors circulate around a slight graphics update to Intel X3100 graphics and a much awaited LED-backlighted screen.
