    I would love to see them released together with Leopard.

    In my opinion this would make sense. The back to school program has maybe cleaned the stores of the old macbooks, ready to be replaced by a new version.

    Regarding the upcoming holiday season we already saw the ipod line up being totally refreshed. And except for the iMac all computers haven't seen major upgrades for long times. Couldn't this be a phenomenal holiday line up for the whole company?

    I still believe they are coming. At least I want to buy one this year. :D

    It's a rumor that we want to be true?

    The MacBook is nearing its yearly second update.

    It is indeed time for an update, and since macbook is starting to look quite fat and bloated compared to other smallish laptops, I think it's time to slim it down.

    Also many people wish to see a smaller MBP, but I think we're getting one line of :apple: laptops made of aluminium. the biger ones will still be called pro, but there will be less difference in the looks.

    One reason why I believe in this rumor is that 9to5mac is telling it, they seem to have a clue.

    My thoughts.

    The MacBookThin/Alu NEEDS Leopard so not until Leopard appears - so maybe soon. Would rock but would also need to have an Apple event to promote the release.

    But I think more likely MWSF 2008. I figure they maybe will put a 32GB flashdrive in it to keep it thin so longer they leave it the cheaper because of the current constraints on flash. More time to iron out bugs as well if they also also go the new touchpad/touch?

    It would be nice, i bought the MBP because of the feel of the metal, I dont need a pro, but if the macbooks change I might go back :)
