    The current MacBooks go by the codes of MB302 etc.

    In our inventory system I see two new additions, one is the MB062, 2.16Ghz, 120GB, DVDRW, for $1299, and a MB063 with 2.2Ghz, 160GB, DVDRW for $1399. These don't sound like what we've heard regarding the new notebooks, but I can confirm that they're in the Future Shop/Best Buy system, and were not there before...

    + 1, I highly doubt those our the new MacBooks, the current ones have better specs for a lower price.

    Could it be a old name just to serve as a place holder?
    Because (like stated above) there's no way that's the new model.

    MB062, MB062 and MB063 were the old MacBooks, they were replaced with MB402, MB403 and MB404.

    One thing is that NVIDIA have delayed the release of their next chipsets, the 9300 and 9400, to the day after the Apple keynote.

    http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquirer/news/2008/09/27/nvidia-9300-9400-tuesday

    Now there are two or three possible reasons for this:

    1) Apple are using these chipsets and thus requested the right to announce them and so on.

    2) They perform poorly compared to their primary competitor AMD/ATI and thus they want to bury the news behind Apple's next hardware updates.

    3) NVIDIA's PR engine has its head in the clouds and hasn't thought that a significant Apple launch would smother any other launches for a few days.

    Yeah, I didn't think there was anything concrete; all rumors so far.

    do you really think that the apple keynote matters to anyone aside of apple fans? i mean we have 5% market share. why would nvidea delay their release because of apples release?

    I don't know what share does NVIDIA have in mainboard chipsets market, but I don't think it's much more. I agree it'd be different with regular graphic cards. If their chipsets went into MacBooks, NVIDIA would probably gain enough to justify the delay. AppleInsider speculated about that in July:

    9%.

    And Intel gave Apple exclusivity of the Xeons in the first Mac Pro.

    If it wasn't for the relatively low prices, they might have been the specs for the new MacBook Airs.
