    Is anybody holding off on buying a MB because they are worried about there being further updates at WWDC next month? I am naively hopeful there would be.. I know it's unlikely, but then I keep thinking about how meager the recent update was. I get the feeling that Apple is trying to put some distance performance-wise between the MB and the MBP.

    Thanks

    Yeah not gonna happen. apple really needs to update the macbook pro in order to keep or gain pro-level users. right now there is almost no difference in the CPU between the MB and the MBP. hopefully they will update the MBP before WWDC, because the day after i go on vacation and i need a laptop to dump pictures to, and if the MBP is not upgraded by then i'll just buy a PC laptop, the consumers should not have to wait for apple. apple gets like 70% of sales from creative pros any way!!:mad: :mad:

    I think that WWDC is going to be Leopard and iPhone heavy. These are the two biggest products for Apple this year (esspecially the iPhone). It only makes sense that they devote their attention towards these products. I think the macbook updates on May 15th were the subtle way of Apple telling customers that there won't be an update to the mb line until about November.

    Why would Apple update the same thing twice in a month?

    No, he was hoping for macbook updates that would surpass what was updated last Tuesday, by WWDC.

    Can't see this happening. If you check the "Buyer's Guide" it will tell you that there are approx. at least 6 months between updates.
    IMO WWDC will mainly be about Leopard, iPhone and maybe one or two other things like the announcement of the iMac (with re-design?).

    Agreed, don't hold off for a Macbook update within the month because it wont happen.
