    No-one outside Apple knows and they're not talking.

    If I had to take a guess, I'd say September, but my guess is no better than yours.

    Current rumors say late August or early September for Back to School promotions.

    Depends on when it comes out I guess, but it's highly probable that it'd be the Intel GMA X4500.

    Did anyone notice...?

    Have been following these threads for a while, just had to point out:

    The Mac + Printer deal ($100 rebate) ends on July 21 -- just one week after Montevina comes out... and on a Monday. So MacBook update could happen Tuesday 7/22.

    Just sayin. ;)

    The x4500, which is just as good as Nvidia's 8400! :D

    could someone confirm this?

    isn't the 8400 a dedicated video card? thus it would be much better then the x4500, right?

    Google it and confirm it yourself. The 8400 and x4500 bench nearly the same (the x4500 falls behind ever so slightly), even without final drivers on the x4500. As drivers are finalized (and later updated), performance will increase. The chip also fully supports DirectX 10.
