    In an unusual move, Apple has quietly shipped boxes of new MacBooks to their retail stores this week, many of which arrived today. Special instructions on these boxes indicated that they were not to be opened at this time. But according to reports, the boxes do contain updated Santa Rosa MacBooks. We've even heard claims that some have already been inadvertantly sold to unsuspecting customers. A blurry spy photo is offered as "proof":

    13.3/2.2/2X512/120/SD - DL White

    The specs are said to be as follows:

    White 13.3"
    2.0GHz/2x512MB/80GB/Combo
    2.2GHz/2x512MB/120GB/SD-DL
    2.2GHz/2x1GB/160GB/SD-DL

    Black 13.3"
    2.2GHz/2x512MB/120GB/SD-DL
    2.2GHz/2x1GB/160GB/SD-DL

    The 2.0/2.2GHz speeds do suggest that these MacBooks are based on the Santa Rosa chipset, and they reportedly do include the X3100 integrated graphics chip that had been spotted amongst Leopard's drivers. Note that Apple often sells slightly upgraded models in their retail stores so the 160GB models may be retail configurations.

    We can only assume they will be officially announced next Tuesday.

    Omg!!! FINALLY SOMETHING RELATING TO THE MACBOOK!!! But by the looks of the news....it doesnt seem as though the macbook is getting a whole new look if some where sold to "unexpected customers". What should i do? Buy a macbook after next tuesday....or wait until next year for the macworld conference and hope they do make a Big upgrade then?

    I'm glad I opted for the iMac, then. :)
    Looking forward to see how these turn out, though.

    I'm glad that it isn't. This means that mine is only very slightly outdated now :p

    So much for my hope that the Mini would be updated at the same time...
    (and my prediction they'd wait 3 weeks after Leopard)
