    I can't wait to see what the new ones look like, I'm in the market for a new computer but with the macbook air's having the core shutdown issues and the macbook pro's having their graphics issues, I started looking at the macbook. But oh wait, those crack. So really what's left?

    I'm waiting for the next generation apple laptops before I make a purchase. Hopefully we will see big changes in all of Apple's laptops in the next 6 months. :D

    I have to say that out of the 3 laptops Apple makes, the MacBook has the best quality and best engineered.
    I even have a Core Duo MacBook that's over two years old and it hasn't cracked on me or had any problems. It's still going strong and I call it: "PowerPC-Intel Mac". ;)

    Thanks, I use a sony now and want a laptop and the other Mac's dont really fit my needs so I guess I will wait for the new ones, just ordered a mini also and have been waiting a month for that :( so here is another wait.
    I have used a Macbook Air and when you hit Flash it a nightmare, also want a user replaceable battery.

    Yes, my MacBook is well-built machine. I can't speak for every MacBook user but I am sure most MacBooks are like this too.

    You should call Apple and tell them to release it on another date, then.

    What is new about the macbook coming up does anyone know? is it just the looks and maybe a little tweek in performance? this summer has a great deal for college students and i'm still debating whether to buy the new coming macbook. i personally like the black macbook look and don't mind it.

    low end - 2.26Ghz Montevina
    high end - 2.53Ghz Montevina

    both processors should run cooler + more efficiently = battery life++
    DDR2 800Mhz
    hopefully LED screens!

    I'm all over a new MacBook too! I wanna get the low end one & bump the HDD to one of OCZ's new cheap SSD's!... OK maybe not cheap..

    That link makes it sound like it won't have montevina...or am I misreading it?

    August 18th sounds amazing. I hope it's true. Actually, I hope the MBP comes out at the same time, so I can compare.

    I have high expectations. I can't wait.

    I hope its a little sooner than August 18th. It will take a couple weeks to get to my house, and I need it by around that date. :)

    Maybe I should call Apple, too. :rolleyes:

    Speculation says we won't see MacBooks until mid-late September, however we may see MacBook Pro models earlier than that. I really hope Apple updates the MacBooks in August, because I need to buy before September for university. :eek:

    18/8 is a Monday. That makes it impossible. Apple likes Tuesdays, and the occasional Wednesday when the Monday is a holiday.

    August 18th is a safe bet, in that it won't be much more than a month off in either direction.
