I thought I was follwing all the mac rumors quite closely but i did not hear any rumors about new macBook models for a while.

what do you think, will there be a hardware upgrade (led backlight, faster cpu,...) for the macBooks with (or before) the introduction of leopard?

there were some rumors about the ultra portable apple laptop, I hope they won't forget the ordinary macBooks...

release of new OS doesn't necessary entail new hardware... not immediately on release anyway.

they will could just ship current model MBs with leopard til end of year, they might not. who knows. unlikely new models before oct

just buy when you need to buy and enjoy your MB, use macbuyersguide no biggie

There have been rumors about apple upgraded the MacBook's integrated video card, due to the fact that leopard may not be able to run smoothly on the MacBook as is...
riiiiiiiiight. all current macbooks and mac minis are stuck with tiger never to upgrade again :cool:

whereas my imac dv 400mhz has been from os 9 to 10.4 over a span of coming close to 7 or 8 YEARS

you have concrete sources to back that up? lol you do know macbooks can run vista aero just fine on native displays and i thought that was a very graphics taxing os lol

however it wouldn't be a bad idea to get the last computers to run tiger as you would have a very stable os then wait for leopard to mature. buuuuut i am getting leopard as soon as i can lol
