The Rumour: 64-bit Macbook Pro in September
Gizmodo picked up on a rumour published at NewLaunches.com citing ‘sources’ at PC notebook component makers Asus and Quanta, OEMs for Apple’s Macbook and Macbook Pro, suggesting that 64-bit Apple notebooks could be just around the corner. Apparently Apple is keen to get hold of Intel’s Merom processor.
This would follow nicely on from the 64-bit Mac Pro announced and launched last week.
Given the speed at which Apple hardware seems to be evolving and being released at present, this may happen sooner rather than later. Apple will probably want as many of its new machines up to 64-bit capacity for the release of OS X Leopard.
I’m not sure it will happen as soon as September, though last year Apple made consumer announcements in October so it may fit around that.
New notebook processors in September? Hmmm, 60%
What do you think?
