I read an article about Intel possibly settling antitrust issues, and could lead to Nvidia back in the GPU game for Macs with future Intel CPUs. The article specifically mentions Apple too. http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/07/19/intel.to.get.mild.regulation.in.ftc.lawsuit/ This would be WONDERFUL news. Perhaps Apple had some knowledge of this and was hopeful this would be worked out before introducing new MBPs a few months ago. It took a long time for that update; I hope that was the issue and not the damned iPad. Apple definitely seems to want to stick with Nvidia when it comes to the "MacFive" computers - 13" MBP, MBA, MB, Mm, and 21.5" iMac. I look forward to a possible Core i7-6x0LM with an Nvidia 320m... Maybe 2011 will bring new Intel processors with Nvidia chipsets in new MBAs. That would be amazing!
