If rumors are correct, Apple will unveil new MacBooks on or about October 14th. Computerworldis Seth Weintraub noted that a redesign is long overdue and took some educated guesses about what the new MacBook Pros will sport when theyire released.
Among the items Mr. Weintraub expects -- or hopes for are:
- One piece aluminum, rounder, skinnier, like MacBook Air
- 16:9 LED backlit display. Not 16:10.
- HDMI video out
- SSD option
- Centrino 2 chipset with 1066 MHz FSB
The CW author goes into a little bit of detail for these items and more. Heis not so sure about Blu-ray, virtual keyboard and an HD camera.
In the aggregate, if Apple delivers most of these options and designs in a new MacBook Pro for the same price as the current products, the Apple community will be more than pleased.
