    Last year Apple released new Macbooks. Are new Macbooks expected in October along with the launch of Leopard.
    In the current Macbook I hate the integrated video card. It's absolutely horrendous. So a better graphics card + a LED-backlit screen is what I'm really looking at but other upgrades are always welcome. :)
    No I don't need it anytime soon but this is just to keep my head set on whether I'm waiting or not. I need it by the start of September but I could delay it till the end of October to get it pre-installed with Leopard. The thing is, right now with the student discounts I can get a free ipod nano! I've got a 3G 40GB ipod but it needs to be repaired slightly plus a new battery needs to be installed.

    Anyone care to comment about these:

    When the next MB updates come around (don't know when), it will probably be low-end SR, LED backlight, maybe a hard drive/RAM bump. But I wouldn't hold out on a dedicated graphics card any time soon.

    The X3100 which is slated to replace the GMA950 in the current MacBooks is only about 3 times faster. It does, however, have hardware T&L so it will be compatible with more games. Those crunchgear rumors were well squished here on MR. Can't really go thinner than 1" due to hard disk.
