    I've posted a thread on the iMac already. Now, the MacBook.

    There will be no SIGNIFICANT changes.

    The new MacBook will NOT support Thunderbolt.
    It will be equipped with the new Sandy Bridge i3 processor.
    It still comes with 2GB of RAM, expandable to 4GB.
    320M has been replaced with Intel HD 3000.

    This seems a lot more reasonable than the claims you posted in the iMac thread...

    Nope, these don't get upgraded, although I think they were thinking about a price drop.

    Does "In my opinion they have been discussing the possible price drop of a Mac Mini" sound any better?
    People, we're not robots. We're human too.

    meh.. Posting insider information from Apple is not a good idea. They can still sue you even if you were dismissed unfairly.

    It just got released, you don't really expect an update after 5 months, do you?

    Considering the 08-09 refresh was less than 8 months due to the advancement of processors and we now have sandy bridge, you are damn right I expect an update in a few months.

    Some called for an update the moment it was released.

    Dunno if this is a big ole' April Fools joke or anything, but those specs do sound pretty reasonable.

    Yeah, that's pretty reasonable. But personally, I think all of Apple's Mac's should all come with a minimum of 4 GB or RAM. You would think it doesn't make a difference but it does. Was playing with my cousins MacBook with 2 GB or RAM and I found it to be slow. I guess if you're using 2GB the whole time you won't notice it or mind it but the extra 2 GB of RAM really does make a difference even if you're doing normal tasks.

    I would assume it would be expandable to 8gb, also why would apple go from a 320m (which is faster) to the hd 3000. I would like to see and AMD gpu.

    Because it makes sense from their point of view. GPU speed doesnt really doesn't matter in the Macbook..
