    I'm looking to buy a new Mac - either a MacBook (which I have now) or a MacBook Pro (13"). Now that the Pros have been upgraded with faster CPUs and GPUs, any thoughts on whether the MacBook will be upgraded too?

    But there will be no i3/5/7 in them, because the Intel HD graphics are not as good as the 9400M or 320M.

    WWDC might be a likely update time along with the iMacs and maybe the Mac Mini and Mac Pro.

    I could see the Macbooks getting a small CPU speed bump, HDD bump, and maby, maby, a graphics bump but not much if any. Seems like it's just a easy way to have a sub $1000 notebook for apple. It looks as if the 13" MBP is migrating towards that arena anyways, the 13 is a 'taste' of what the 15 is..

    My feeling is they will continue as they are to ramp down supplies of the 9400m. When this ends, they will switch over. They may also want the 13" MBP to have an edge for a while so keeping the MB as it is. It will look like the low-end 13" MBP when it is revised in a few months.
