We are used to having the average Apple product cycle at.. what?.. 6-9 months? I don't know if Intel has the same product cycles, but let's assume they can pump out faster chips ever 3-5 months. Would Apple update their products each time to keep up? Or would Apple still wait the 6-9 months and just plop in the biggest and baddest processor available at that time? Will they update quietly or have big announcements? Whatever they decide to do will affect the MacRumors buying guide.
