I'd love to see the melt down of recent MB/MBP switchers if this is true. Don't see it happening though...

Please!!!

I really, really, really, really hope they make an Aluminum MB or even a 13.3" MBP. I don't want 15 or 17 (not to mention the absurd price) and I'm not going buy a plastic laptop. I suppose that's hoping for a bit too much from an incremental update huh? :(

Dont be so quick to write this off as a phony.

Im not saying I know anything whatso ever; however, what I do know is that Intel is pushing all of its users to update to its new technology as it becomes available.

Intel has a grapple on the industry, and the PC world such as Dell, Sony, HP, etc like to listen to Intel and use their new chips ASAP.

Im thinking that Apple will do the same.

But what could they change? The new Intel Chips are due in June...

Sure they are due in June.

And just like all the previous Intel Chips, Apple get them a month early... Say in May.

Hrmm what month is it?

I'm thinking not so much on this one, but hey anything could happen. Would be a nice surprise considering I'm waiting for the a major update to buy 1. Out of curiosity, wouldn't they usually release a major redesign at a convention (WWDC, MWSF)?

Also by looking at the buyer's guide you will notice that most updates occur in May. Think about it, kids graduating, getting ready to go to college with lots of money from graduation gifts make this a prime time to buy. Why wouldn't Apple release it in May? Also I think we will be seeing decreased waiting time between updates because Intel.

Though I will say that the website is pretty shady though.

Maybe!!

The 3G iPhone is going to be the BIG hype for Apple this year. So, it makes sense to release the new laptops before the new iPhone. If not, the hype of the new iPhone could drown out the new laptops. On the other hand, the hype of the iPhone could help sell the new MBs, right before a new school year.

No way they are going to be updated this soon.

I think they will. Maybe not tomorrow, but for sure before the end of June.

The Only reason Apple updated in Feb to Penryn processors was becaused they were forced to by Intel to replace all the 65mn (merom) chips. And it wasnt just apple, it was every other PC maker as well.

It seems unlikely, but then again, a laptop called "Macbook Air" seemed unlikely to me as well. Still not in the market for a laptop, but I enjoy seeing them progress, nonetheless.

I highly doubt Apple would release new MacBook and MacBook Pro models this soon. I mean, they took the time to comlpetely redesign the pages on their website, dubbing the previous refresh as the "New MacBook, New MacBook Pro, etc." After all that they are going to redo it again after only three months? It would be really confusing to me why they would tell customers they are "new" three months ago, then "new" again tomorrow, it's not good marketing in my opinion.
