    Does anybody have any speculation about whether Apple plans to put the 64-bit Intel Merom dual core chip in future MacBook revisions? When might this happen if they decided to do so? Could this be in the next revision?

    It's possible the next revision (around christmas maybe?) will have meroms in the 15" and 17" and a low power dual core yonah in the 12"/13".

    I'm actually thinking apple should make macbooks in two configs:
    •11" Widescreen Ultra portable -$1200 - $1400 AU (Current 12" is $1600AU)
    •13" Widescreen Ultra portable -$1600 - $1800
    Both with low-power dual core yonahs

    Then macbook pros in two configs:
    •15" Widescreen
    •17" Widescreen
    Both with Merom chips

    That way apple are still handling the 4 screens, but there are less "pb or ib???" threads and less confusion. The only difference being processors (And possibly gfx cards) could work. :)

    I disagree. I think both the macBook and the macBook Pro will have merom. I see the Pro version getting 4mb Merom while the macBook (iBook) will get the 2mb one.
