    When the macbook is next updated, anyone think the price will come down to that of the iBook before it was replaced - £699? If Apple can cut £80 off the iMac and still give it Core 2 and better specs I dont see why they couldnt with the macbook.

    Do bear in mind the 80 price cut on the iMac came with some severe cutbacks (RAM, bluetooth, apple remote, etc, etc) so I don't think they'll do it with the MacBook.

    No, the iMac was priced at £879, and now starts at £799. You're thinking of the eduactional iMac which is now avaible to the public for £679.

    Yeah this is true, they didn't take anything out of the iMacs for that price cut - quite a significant price cut as well, with an upgrade to C2D!
    I hope this does happen with the MacBooks, it seems to have some kind of sense behind it.
