Possible hint from Applesinsider that we might see something new tomorrow (4th July)

http://appleinsider.com/article.php?id=1855

There's recently been some talk about a potential Apple product introduction following the July 4th holiday. However, the rumors are largely unconfirmed at this time.

Specifically, the rumblings suggest a high-end hardware offering could be in the cards. Informed speculation would point to a product based on Intel's Woodcrest line of chips, which were recently introduced.


There are also new configurations of MacBooks in Apple stores - 1GB RAM and bigger hard drives.

Hey, what's up with the new Merom chip? :p :D
More then likely launched in August and/or available in the fall. I'd settle for a speed bump on the MacBook Pro. The refurb prices are good or I can get a free iPod w/new.

I just ordered my macbook pro. It's set to be delivered on the 5th. I would be so mad if they announced an upgrade and then shipped me the old model. That would be just my luck though.

Second time you missed my attempt at sarcasm. :)

New enclosure for MacBook Pro? I hope it isn't that different, love the aluminium/titanium PB G4/MBP. I already have mine, so shouldn't care, but want Apple to remain looking stylish.

Not that Think Secret seems to be very accurate. But I would love to see the new Intel based PowerMac replacements be announced. I am still hopeful that there will be a new mid-range system (not an iMac) but anything new is positive.

New chip, new case for next Pro Mac at WWDC

ThinkSecret reports that PowerMac G5 replacement will feature a new case design. :D
Also reportedly, MacBook Pros will get a new case design too with introduction of Intel Core 2 Duo (aka Merom) chips.

EDIT: Merged thread, old news :)

MacBook/Pro heat problems could indeed lead to a new form factor. It wouldn't surprise me.

As for new products tomorrow, surely Apple Employees are having the day off too?

A new case design? It's called a macbook PRO for a reason, professionals want a sturdy, professional look to their notebooks, not a kiddie multicolored litebrite notebook. If they keep a titanium finish but make a few design changes (ie. integrated keyboard, magnetic latching, etc.) that's OK, but I won't want a kiddie notebook.

Well what ever it may be, all I know is the Pro Macs need to come out ASAP... was watching Law and Order the 1 P.M. one today if anyone TiVoed it and what commercial was playing?

The new Dell Workstations. Sounded like the new Xeon's were in them. I looked on website but couldn't find the one I saw on TV...
