    [Edit] Well we know now that Apple is building the Macbook their own way now! Search "Brick" for more info.
    I am one of many that is planning to buy an aluminum Macbook, and I have a question or two for everyone out there!
    -What would you like to see when the new Macbook comes out?
    -What will you buy spec wise on you new lappy???
    -What do you think the new Macbooks will sport (Centrino 2, Nvidia cards, etc.)?

    The two most likely dates for release are Sept. 28 and Oct. 14. Here is a link to an article from the same person that predicted the Let's Rock event:

    Which one do you think is the real deal???

    This is the one I want to see the most!

    Found this too, but the new one is confirmed to have a backlit apple logo, not a chrome one.

    This is exactly what I want!

    So think it over and tell us what you think!
    This thread can help everyone decide what to expect in the new Macbooks!

    Thanks!:D

    As long as it's aluminum and the case doesn't cut my wrists up, then I'll be happy..

    1. Proper Video card, applications I use benefit from it, not to mention I like to boot into windows to play the odd game or two. Come on apple it's 2008.

    2. Better screen, would love to get the mac book air screen in there, it would help the battery life too being an led display.

    3. T8300 or T9300 as the base CPU, the latter is highly unlikely to happen.

    4. Black keyboard, and the case influenced more by the air's design.

    HDD's and ram are less of a concern seeing as they are the easiest to upgrade but I would expect the base model to have 2gb of ram.

    I read on another thread that CTS is possible for people that use the current Macbook! Crazy, right?

    I totally agree with you that this design will blow everyone away!

    I think you started another thread similar to this a day or so ago. Is it so hard for you to just post in the thousands of other threads about this subject or do you like the attention of having your very own thread?

    Seeing you have more than 15 posts, you do realize there are numerous threads on this vary subject (looking at your post history shows you have even posted in them). You should of posted in one of those instead of starting another one.

    I couldn't find a thread asking people what they wanted in the Aluminum Macbook. That is why I created this one.

    I have only posted in 2 threads about the Macbook shipping, etc. You can see almost everyone of those comments has come from the link below if you would like to see. I have many comments on pages 40-41 and my first post is on that thread. Actually, someone in that thread on page 41 claims to have seen a glimpse under a cart with the new boxes at their apple store.

    If you are done attacking me, I would like to get back to reading, lol:p

    Not attacking. Just friendly advice. You must of not looked too hard because I did a simple search and on the first page there are 10 threads in the last 6 days discussing this subject.

    Does anyone think the new MacBooks could sport some design cues from the new silver and black Nano. I think it would look pretty cool. With black colored features here and there and a slightly curved body?

    Hmmm, the new nanos are completely magnificent BUT how would the case open and close/look with a curve body? there would be a gap in between where the keyboard closes under the screen.

    I'm personally hoping so. I kind of am wishing for black aluminum though...I'm not a fan of the silver look. I would like black keys as well, no discoloration!

    Yep..that looks awesome, except one thing. Needs to be a Macbook Pro! I bought the silver/black Nano because I'm anticipating the Macbooks/Pros to be the same style to match the iMacs and Airs. :D This anticipation is starting to kill me, I'm ready to make the switch! I'll be at the store the moment Apple releases the new MBPs!
