Did you awake to have your dreams crushed? Did the rumor sites get it wrong again? No, that's impossible! Here's why there is no MacBook enroute to your doorstep today. You can blame the MBP 17in. It is hogging a very valuable commodity - the 8x super drive with Dual layer support. Until that little piece of technology becomes abundant enough to upgrade the existing MBP 15in, you ain't gonna see a MacBook. Why? Certainly not because it uses the same drive. It doesn't. But it does use the same 8x Superdrive found in the current 12in Powerbook. The problem is there is no way Apple is going to put out a consumer portable that burns DVDs better and quicker than it's flagship design. For that matter, ever since the 867 mhz 12in PB/900 mhz iBook catastrophe, it'll never put Superior specs on a consumer portable again. Don't worry macmen, the wafer-thin Superdrive in the 17in MBP is ramping up and should be more widely available in 1 to 2 weeks. First, you will see a revision to the MBpro line, then a week later you'll see the giant chiclet we so lust over. At least our credit card statements will be light for another month.
