    What will be the difference between the current Macbook's chips and the new one's that will be out in July? Will they be much faster or will it not make a difference?

    Harder (aluminum), Better (processor/GPU), Faster (chips), Stronger (amount of hard drive space)!

    check the wiki site:


    i don't really get it, but generally I would assume the average user would not know the difference. That happens to be the case with lots of technology. Lets just say its fast enough.

    I'm yet to find an application which makes my MacBook (the previous generation from the one that is on sale now) 2.2GHz struggle or show in any way that it is requiring an upgrade.

    If we don't even know if a macbook is coming in July, how can we tell you what the difference is?

    here is one reason why I wouldnt want an aluminum macbook... IT DENTS, where plastic is much more resilient....

    True, although stylish the aluminum mbp is not constructed very well. The screen doesn't sit flush, the sides where the ports are dent easily, the plastic strip around the aluminum comes loose, you can push your finger from the back side of the screen and push on the actual screen. Its the little things about the durability of apple products that bother me, thin is nice, so is looks, give me some structure and durability.
