ThinkSecret reports that Apple is set to introduce new MacBook updates soon after the release of Mac OS X Leopard (10.5). Leopard is rumored to be launched on October 26th, and the rumor site expects the new MacBooks to be in the hands of consumers "by the first half of November, if not sooner."

According to their sources, the MacBook update will be a relatively modest update, and simply bump processor speeds. It's unknown if the new MacBooks will adopt the Santa Rosa architecture that adopted by the MacBook Pros in June. ThinkSecret also believes this will be the last Apple hardware revision before the holidays.

These expectations don't entirely correlate with September rumors of a slim aluminum MacBook arriving "soon".

The last MacBook update was May 15, 2007.

yes, absolutely Mac Pros must get here before the new year. i've been holding myself back from getting a Mac Pro until they get a blu-ray/hd dvd burner. I do video production, and i can currently shoot and edit in HD, but i want to be able to easily deliver in HD as well. the Mac Pro is expected to get a burner first, and i will be one of the first to buy one.

Santa Rosa & 3100 IG

The next MB had damn well better not use the GMA 950. Give us Santa Rosa and the 3100, at least.
Gotta be. That's what I've been waiting for. If they're gonna be faster they've gotta be Santa Rosa & 3100 IG so we can run FCS 2 & CS3 with 4 GB of ram.

There were rumors of a new mac mini coming in November with the Santa Rosa chipset, but I guess it has been debunked if this Thinksecret article is true.

I hope so, I bought a mini two weeks ago and did the RAM and hard drive upgrade myself

if true, this shows how important the Mac Pro is to Apple these days...
iPod, iPhone, iMac, Mac Books rule. Maybe a new OS if they get around to it.

Update our overpriced flagship? Were busy-- check back next year.

C'mon. Its got to be Santa Rosa!

That's right! There's no reason why Apple should neglect putting the Santa Rosa chipset into the MacBooks.

Also, the LED displays would be nice too. While you're at it add some flash hybrid-ness into the hard disk drives. :D

Unbelievable.. The thread's barely 10 minutes old and look at all the complaining going on already... :rolleyes:

If true, the big news isn't a minor speed bump to the Mac Book. It's no new Mac Pros. Much more significant as the MP hasn't had a real update since its introduction in 2006, and while I am happy for future Mac Book buyers, they get refreshed regularly and a minor speed bump isn't going to make or break anyone's day.
