Hey Guys,

I've been checking out MacRumors for quite awhile now, and this is my first time on the forums. I couldnt help but ask for some advice.

I'm really wanting to get one of the new macbooks. But im not wanting to get one and they make a another one in a few months or whatever. My only concern is the 13.3 screen, is it big enough, do you think they'll be a bigger one released anytime soon?

I guess my main question is do you think they will make some other options for macbook this fall quarter? or should I go ahead and buy?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated :confused: ,

Hey Matt,

I'm new here to but I'll throw my thoughts out for consideration anyway. I think it depends on what you want to do with the screen. Personally, I'm considering it for a little bit of video editing, which some people say it's fine for and some say it isn't, I guess the only way to really tell is to try one out in person.

The only rumour I've heard is that at the Paris expo it might get memron, but even that seems to be dismissed now, so as far as I'm aware there won't be any improvements in the near future. Someone else might be more clued in though. Maybe the price will be lowered?

Unfortunatly the only way to get a bigger screen is to shell out more cash for the MacBook pro. Which is alot extra to pay for a bigger screen.

They won't make a bigger macbook anytime soon. They may update the processor to a merom but no one knows when, and it won't make that big a difference for most people.

i definitely don't think they'll release a bigger macbook. the extra screen real estate (i think) will be reserved for the pro line. but, honestly, i switched from a 15" PB to the MB and i can hardly tell a difference, most of the time. it's definitely not too small - to me, it's perfect as a portable, and if you need a bigger screen, you can always hook it up to an external monitor.

as for merom.. i've no clue.
