Does anyone think it is probable that Apple will release an updated Macbook around the time Leopard is released? It would have been about six months since the last Macbook update... You see, I really do not have much money and cannot afford anything more than the lowest model Macbook... and that's if I use my student discount and my $200 apple gift card. I want to wait until leopard is released because it should be less than 2 months from now and it seems to be a great update to Tiger. I have been holding off purchasing a Macbook not only because I have not had the cash but also because Leopard's release was coming up soon. Another reason I have not purchased one was because the lowest model macbook *still* does not have dvd-writing capabilities. In my opinion I really think this should be a standard feature on ALL computers. I mean come on, -DVD writers are cheap as hell. I don't care about the extra speed of the next model up, the larger hard drive or the fancy black color. I simply want to be able to write dvd disks without an external drive. I understand apple wants to make money but seriously... not including a dvd drive on the lowest macbook (which is still a lot more expensive than a comparable pc laptop at circuit city, best buy, office depot etc.) is nothing more than a cheap trick to force people into buying the midrange model. How can you not include a dvd writer and then make people pay $200 extra for that. Yeah the next model has a bigger hard drive and a slightly faster CPU but come on! Ok, I'm done talking about that... I think the next macbook refresh should include the following: - LED screens for all Macbook models - DVD writers on all models (yes you knew that was coming) - A more recent chipset for all models - slightly faster speeds would be nice but I won't complain if at least the other three I mentioned above are introducted. - Updated graphics... It doesn't have to be nearly as good as the macbook pro, but at least something a little more usable for games... Even if there are no other features added except for the ones I mentioned above I would be happy and will buy a Macbook when it is released. Otherwise I might have to stick to buying a PC laptop... and I really don't want to do that. At least include a damn dvd writer so I can burn my home videos!!!
