    So everybody has been talking about the new Macbooks that are rumored to be coming out in September/October.
    We all have said we want aluminum in black, silver, white, etc.
    We have also been saying stuff about blue ray.
    There have been a lot more things that we've been talking.

    But I haven't heard many people talking about specs or price.
    So do any of you have any ideas on the three different price settings?
    Or how about tech specs like ram or hard drive space?

    Thanks for your time!

    The prices will stay the same, as will the current RAM and HD offerings. There hasn't really been any advances in those two areas.

    BluRay will be an option, if it is offered. LED screens. Potential SSD option. Backlit keyboard? Longer battery life. These are all very real possibilities.

    I dont see BluRay yet, the monitors aren't high enough resolution and probably still arent HDCP-compliant yet.

    SSD? maybe.

    Backlit? probably.

    Longer battery life? marginally, maybe.

    EDIT: 1,000th post!

    I can't wait to see the new Macbooks. I don't care for aluminum, but I'm sure it will look awesome.

    BTW I already have backlit on my Macbook. It is a Maclight that plugs in the USB outlet. Works like a charm. :)

    an led back lit screen would improve battery life.

    or do what a lot of my friends and I do. Buy a second battery. You can find them relatively cheap. Never have to worry about having enough juice.
