There are now rumors of a MacBook Pro update, but what do you think the chances are of a update to the normal MacBook?

little to none, the macbooks were recently updated in november.

look for a late summer update.

Not any time soon. I would say May at the earliest.

Naw, they'll see a speed bump before June (when the iPod deal for students starts).

I think early May is a good bet based on previous years. I doubt we'll see anything new (probably a minor speed bump and an HD/RAM boost). Last May was similar as well (the C2D macbooks got a speed bump and the base model got more RAM).

It isn't likely to happen for a while there isn't anything to update it to yet just be patient.

I hope they use the LED backlights in the next update. Are there online comparisons between the lifetimes of LED and CCFLs?

I would say, probably today.

Oh darn, hindsight is always the best. :)

You know what they say, hindsight vision is always in 20/20. :)

Nonetheless, I am shocked with today's update. The macbook traditionally would have been updated in 2 or 3 months. There was really no reason to bring to "par" with the macbook pro.

What will the Buyer's Guide look like now! :eek::p
