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.
