It appears that unfortunately the Merom processor that many are claiming to be the next big thing will still use the same chipset as Yonah. Around March of 2007 the Crestline chipset (part of the "Santa Rosa" platform) will be unleashed on the world that will give, amongst other things, a 800Mhz front side bus and 802.11n support. A 27% boost in front side bus speed is going to be a huge deal as it directly effects the speed the processor can address memory. News.com reporting on the PCWatch post: http://news.com.com/Intel+notebook+tech+to+head+to+Santa+Rosa/2100-1006_3-6032965.html Obviously this post was made with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek, but it is very interesting how much information we're getting now about the chips Apple is probably going to be using. Before Intel, the Apple faithful had to use the "rythm method" (a-la MacRumor's Buyer's Guide) to determine when to buy. Now we know what new tech is coming down the pipe from Intel and that Apple will probably HAVE to use it in order to avoid being crushed by competitors. While I do think an informed consumer is a good thing, there is something attractive about the mystery that existed prior.
