    I'm thinking Apple *MAY* update the MacBook and 15" MacBook Pro earlier than expected.

    I am basing this on Apple's naming conventions for their notebooks. They have named the new 17" MacBook Pro, the "17-inch MacBook Pro (Early 2009)."

    So...how about a MacBook (Early 2009) and a 15-inch MacBook Pro (Early 2009)?

    Right now, Apple has the MacBook (Late 2008), 15-inch MacBook Pro (Late 2008), and 17-inch MacBook Pro (Early 2009). Seems a little incongruent.

    IMO, early 2009 is too early. I'm actually thinking that they all will be updated at the same time (13, 15 and 17).

    About a month after Apple released the first 17" MacBook Pro at NAB in April 2006, they updated the 15" MacBook Pro that May, on the same day they also debuted the white and black MacBooks. The MacBook Pro at that point was only shipping since mid-February.

    Well uh, the unibody macbooks (17" excluded) are labeled as (late 2008). The naming of the 17" is so no one thinks they are getting last gen hardware.

    Yes but that had the backing of the growing pains that were the Powerbook. With an entirely new generation in the folds I'd give them atleast 7-9 months before expecting a speed bump just incase there are any serious first rev issues that can be worked out.

    Apple isn't going to do an update just to keep the names consistent.

    The names are consistent, they list the year and when in the year the MBPs were release.
