    Ok so, now that the Sep. 9 has been confirmed to be "Let's Rock", I highly doubt that there are going to be any Macbook updates. This is a problem, because I was really hoping that there was going to be, since I really need to buy a Macbook. AND, the Buyer's Guide has now changed the Macbook to "Do not buy", so I don't know what to do!

    Does anybody know around when the Macbooks ARE going to be revised?

    Thanks

    Teen calm down! Its a forum and obviously the OP's excited!

    @OP: Most probably no considering all the rumors, event's name and branding (see the pic on page 1). October seems to be it!
    No harm in waiting for another couple days!

    Apple's current MacBook was introduced with no event.

    Hm, that's interesting... So, if there aren't any huuge changes, are they going to just quietly update it?

    Apple made the most significant change to its computer line in years with no event. That was back in 2006 when they released MacBook and took the massively popular iBook off sale. The next MacBook update will be of less significance than this event.

    I think it is safe to say, nobody on this forum knows when the next macbook will introduced. Both your question has been asked many of times and has been answered many times.

    A quick search would have shown you that. There is only speculation and dreams as to what, when and how the macbook will be introduced.

    Amen to that; this is called Mac Rumours, not Mac Facts. We don't know. we can offer guesses, sometimes informed, or educated guesses - or interpretations, - based on known patterns of such events in the past, but nobody (save Mr Jobs himself and his immediate circle) can give you a definitive answer on that.
    Cheers

    Not even the apple store workers or their managers know until right before it happens, I shoould know I know someone who works there and they dont know!!

    STOP MAKING DUMP REPETITIVE POSTS ON RELEASE DATES, HOW MANY THREADS DOES THERE NEED TO BE ON ALL OF THIS???????

    Mods why don't you delete these? Surely pointless usage on a topic that has repeated several times?! What is their to gain?!

    I say insta-ban for posted these "When will X Apple product be updated??? ZOMG HELP me PLZ" threads. There are plenty of rumors threads and there is a buyer guide no need for these.

    You are a 13 year old graphics designer? Seriously? Are you one of those savants that goes to college when they are 10 and graduates by the time they are 13?

    The reason I ask is because I know a lot of people who are working towards their graphics design degree and they are in their 20s and 30s - even 40s. How did you get yours when you're only 13?

    Speaking from a little experience here, I'd think a degree would be one of the last things an employer would look for in a potential graphic designer. The number one thing they ask for is talent. Some letters after your name aren't going to affect that.

    Hey leave him alone dude, seriously. He is an enthusiast of graphic design, what is wrong with that? I think its cool, regardless of age. Yes, your awesome of course, so everyone else has to be lame right? "neiltc13" is correct, they look for talent not a degree. It is all about your portfolio. I know this from personal experience with a few graphic artists including Mr. Evan Reeves (http://www.evanreeves.com/) who has worked for such large companies as Arctic Cat.

    I've got a buddy who can't be touched in PS (at least not by most people) and he'll do small work for companies to get his foot in for when he graduates HS...he's been doing this since at least grade 10, so for 3 years now at least as far as I know (10, 11 and 12)

    I don't think it's unheard of. Talent > Degree

    If there is to be an October event, it is likely to be on that date.

    don't plan on seeing any new macbooks until the next release of an intell mobile chipset. Penryn is still the newest and is being used currently. Expect to see new macbooks in the first quarter of next year.

    Next year? Will apple really wait until then and miss out on back to school / holiday sales? I don't think so

    No the upgrades are most probably going to be next month.
    Till then the MB will all be montevina (the reason why we havent seen the upgrade in Aug since intel delayed its release)

    And at any cost.... the specs would be same for an upgrade now or in Jan since the montevina is the last update intel is providing its current Core 2 lineup! After this... its gonna be Nehalem in mid 2009!
