    So rumors point to MacBook updates... what are they likely to be do we think?

    I doubt we are talking major re-design are we? surely just updated chipsets and speeds??

    In short they will look the same on the outside... :S

    I'm hoping for a matte screen option and better graphics.

    .01% chance of a matte screen

    Lower than that, unless they do some crazy for the MBP. But I think that that is a perk of buying a MBP

    Some part of me doubts that they will change on the outside simply because they still look fine to me. All of the other Apple products that have been updated this year had some very tired and old looks. The macbooks are relatively new and don't really warrant a new exterior case. Just my opinion though.
    Lee, you should know better than to expect that. :p

    OK- just a matte screen, please? I can't use a glossy- too difficult to use on the train and the bus. :(

    I would love to see it on the macbooks as well, but most consumer-level laptops seem to use glossy. If only we could remove the gloss with an abrasive... (DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME)

    Well, seeing as the GMA 950 is relatively ancient by now, the x3100 seems like a given. I doubt that they'll add much else, though a higher resolution iSight seems possible as well. I give a 1% chance of the matte update, 5% of a case update (no event scheduled...). Really just a new graphics card, low chance of case update, no matte screen (why would they?), maybe a little update to SR (2.2 Ghz), but it seems like an x3100 update is it, if anything. They might not even update, but I won't say anymore.
