Apple Confirms New Notebooks: 14th October

Haven't you heard? Apple is unveiling a new MacBook (or range of MacBooks) on the 14th of October at 10am PST (which is 6pm for us Brits) at an event at Cupertino's Town Hall!

Okay, hyperbole aside, what we actually know is that Apple has sent an invite to US journalists (we in the UK have yet to hear anything) simply stating that on the 14th of October there will be an event related in some way to notebooks.

There's absolutely no information other than that relating to the plethora of rumours circulating about the apparent "brick" notebooks and/or manufacturing process. Not that we'd expect anything else of Apple. A few would-be detectives reckon that by measuring the image, and assuming the apple logo is the usual 1.5in size one, the system pictured is a 13.3in beast. As if we didn't already all know the MacBook range is way overdue a refresh.

Hopefully the UK equivalent invites are in the post?

Om nom nom nom!





If they actually update the Macbook range, then I'm taking out a loan...

Good luck getting one at your age, mate.

Ah, I wouldn't take one out really.





Been rocking the overtime lately anyway, so providing they don't do anything with the pricetag, I think I might take a merry stroll to my local Apple store.

Heres hoping to HDSPA. And an expresscard slot for a standard Macbook.

You mean beyond the usual excessive UK mark-up?

Well I wouldn't want to be unrealistic now, would I?

me thinks a dedicated nvidia gpu for the macbook. and a dvd writer option as standard (i still can't believe apple charge extra for a dvd burner...)

it'll be an aluminium netbook :-O





if not, geforce 9300m gs for macbook + penryn processors and dvd writer as standard. and a sub &#163500 intro price tag. and minimum harddrive size of 160GB.

Aluminium - yes, obviously. But Im not sure Apple will weigh-in on the overcrowded Netbook arena just yet. I'd like them to. But I think they'll combine this Newton "tablet Mac" that's been an R&D on-off-on fiasco for a while with a Netbook-style offering... But don't expect any surprises ont 14th. I spoke to Apple today about how I need to get the new SKUs as soon after the launch as possible to avoid having an empty showroom, and as ever, I get the "what new SKUs?" treatment, as expected :)

I cannot say for why, but I have a feeling nVidia may be involved with the new MacBook range in some capacity... Anyone care to bet against me?

Not me, nVidia have been showing those that need to know within the organisation the next-gen MacBooks, this alone leads me to believe that their chips will be in the new range :) and I'm all for it!
