    With all the pictures of the new MacBook casing online be t fake or real, it's another Tuesday that's coming up.

    I hope they release new MacBooks especially with led backlit screens and I feel it in my gut that it will happen before September.

    hope your gut is right. It would be nice to get the new revision and an iPod... But my gut feels differently than yours. (but hey, that could just be gas :p)

    They're not going to release a completely redesigned revision of their best selling computer without significant media coverage. They're yet to send invitations to a media event, so I doubt that you'll see anything this time around.

    Their next offical event is Macworld and that is in January. However, I believe they'll have a special event hopefully sometime in early September to introduce the updated macbooks.

    I've been waiting a very long time to make the switch with the montevina macbook, but I'm not going to complain (look how long people have been waiting for mac minis and mac pros!)

    I think they'll just update it and just stamp on the intro to the apple.com with macbooks now in aluminum + led or something.

    at this point, I'm guessing it's just going to come with the ipod event in september along with the mbp's.

    I doubt that they would announce a Mac update at an iPod event.

    well it's an event that they typically update ipod's at, not an ipod event, so I wouldn't doubt that they would update their laptops too.

    Why don't you do a search before starting a new thread?

    To the OP, I hear the Nvidia cards in the MBP could cause some problems 3-4 years down the line. Any thoughts on this?

    The nvidia 8600m gt cards are all defective so it could fail anytime but you have to keep in mind that it really depends on your usage pattern.

    If you game hardcore or use 3d modeling intensely, I'm sure that you can heat cycle the card more hot than rather warm to cool often that the card will die quicker say in a year or two at most but if you barely use your gpu card and it gets mildly warm to cool I'm sure it can stick it out for 3-4 years but thats even worse when your apple care has run out.

    It was big enough to send out invitations more than a week before it happened.

    So basically the new macbooks are getting a new redesign so this is a big deal to apple.

    And the only way it will be released is probably with some kind of an announcement which the perfect date would be in september for the ipods.

    I guess I change my original post thoughts with this tuesday to september now since I didnt know about the even in sept. =(

    Hey Apple has never mixed their iPod and their laptops in the same time.
    So It would probably not be introduced in the same time.
    For 2 reasons :
    1-like i said, never togeter
    2-it would be too many new products at the same time (don't forget that 2.0/iphone/mobile me/etc launch)

    just my 2 cents
