Last Minute Leaks and Photos of the New Macbooks



Quote:
John Gruber, who foretold the Oct. 14 event many moons ago, has just dropped what appears to be the motherload of what'll be announced. Besides confirming the spy shot, he confirms what I thought when I saw there wasn't a separate mouse button—the entire trackpad (which is glass) is a button, kind of like the BlackBerry Storm's screen. You just push it down, it clicks.

Two bits on the Pro side: There isn't a new 17-inch model. Whether it'll show up later (like the original 17-inch MacBook Pro) or will fade into history is unknown, but the current one will hang around for a bit. The biggie, though, is that the Pro has TWO graphics cards—a GeForce 9400M and a 9600M GT. It'll use the 9400M when it needs to conserve battery juice, and kick on the 9600M when it needs raw power. CPU is going to be about the same. Oh, and it's go glossy or go home, there is no matte option.

For the new MacBooks, they'll look just like 13-inch Pros, but they'll cost ya on that level too: The cheapest aluminum MacBook will be $1299, come with a 2GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 160GB HDD. Yeah, that CPU is a bit slower than the old one, but supposedly the GeForce 9400M inside will make up for it. The white MacBook will stick around, and drop to $999 for the base model.

And for the Airs, more storage, 120GB HDD and 128GB SSD. Woohoo. Of course, we'll find out soon, as we bring to you live.

A little disappointed with the fact that they will not make any more matte screens, bleagh! But I love the design and I bet it's gonna look even better in real life

unless it's regular glass and it breaks if you put it in your bag But apple has good industrial designers so I bet it won't be a problem.

I am underwhelmed. I am glad I got a classic white Macbook first...the black is

The metal is nice, but one could always buy a casing.

It looks exactly like the HP laptops.

Prob. with macbooks is that EVERYONE has them. Really takes away the exclusivity when everyone walks around carrying them.

i know this is in the accessories forum but still...it is a functional piece of technology! lol. if you're buying a Macbook just to be exclusive....all i can say is...

can you imagine if people didn't buy Le Creuset kitchenware or Bang & Olufsen sound systems despite how AMAZING their quality is because it was becoming too trendy?

Exactly! Who cares about exclusivity when buying a computer? This are seriously the best computers in the world.
