Apple's hot news page is rotating an advertisement for "The new MacBook. Up to 2.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo."

The only problem is that the current MacBook tops out at 2.4GHz. It appears that this most likely represents a mistake rather than a true leak, though there were some unconfirmed rumors of a MacBook/MacBook Pro update last week.

Looks like it has been fixed to say it is for the Macbook pros:

EDIT: Nevermind, I saw the image come up just now. Probably a typo.

That is the main reason I am waiting on a new MB, not for a redesign, but for a proc speed bump. I don't need a super drive, but do want a 2.4 GHz proc. I'm assuming this means there will be a speed bump of some sort, maybe only as a config choice though. I was personally expecting updates next week for the MBs in line with the last two years.

I guess that at WWDC the current combo drive will die, it can't cost them less than the SD in any significant terms.

2.6GHz in a MacBook is probably going to happen eventually; but for now its probably just a typo.

For a typo, it's now been there quite a while :rolleyes:

Sometimes Apple's webmasters aren't that fast. After the most recent iMac update, the German Apple site sported an embarrassing typo for several days: An iMac banner proclaimed the systems were running at up to "3.06 HGz". (And no, they never explained what kind of unit "Higagertz" might be. :p ) So, it could be a bit before they correct it, especially since today's Sunday.

Probably an oversight as they are so busy preparing the graphics and information for all the new goodies we will get at WWDC!

i don't think it was a typo since why would they edit the page to start with if there was nothing to change cuz i don't think there was any new news at there page

Most likely just a goof but a 2.6 Ghz processor in a Macbook would be nice.
