    since there are some cpu's intel has released that can be directly applied to the macbook, a small 133Mhz bump basically. many are aware of this possibility. my question is, if they do a bump of the cpu/hd/etc. for the macbook do you think they will include the white macbook in those bumps?

    I'm thinking it could go either way. Here's the bumps I'm hoping for:

    White:
    2.0Ghz/120GB/2GB DDR2 -> 2.133Ghz/160GB/2GB DDR2

    Aluminum:
    2.0Ghz/160GB/2GB -> 2.133Ghz/250GB/2GB
    2.4Ghz/250GB/2GB -> 2.533GHz/320GB/4GB

    Of course, if they bumped up the high end macbook, they'd also have to bump the low end macbook pro. But, as I said, they might just leave the white macbook alone.

    Hard to say but I doubt they would update the Unibodies and not the White. I think the MacRumor Buyers' Guide is wrong and that updates will come in May.

    I guess you didn't feel like using one of the many other "When's the next update" threads eh?

    lol, yea those threads are all the same:

    1. What's the next update?
    2. We don't know, buy now if you need it.
    3. Did you do a search.
    4. Why are you posting this.
    5. Wait for SL.
    6. Buy now if you need.
    7. .
    8. .
    9. .

    BTW, I've ordered my new Macbook, but I'm waiting till Wednesday to pick up, just in case there is a slight bump!

    I think, if they start not updating the White Macbook, they are hinting an EOL for it, which would make sense IMO. But maybe not, maybe it will be around a long time.
