Apple rumour #78,941 for the week – new MacBooks in as little as six weeks?

Computers, Laptops / Notebooks

For anyone holding out for a new MacBook, that’s at least six weeks away, and even then, it’s still just rumour. The rumours this time around seem to be based on two Taiwanese flat-panel makers receiving orders for up to 3 million units for new MacBooks.

Most believe the revision will include a slimmer exterior, multi-touch trackpads, and either aluminum and stainless steel cases or just finishes. In June, Intel’s launching their Montevina chips, which are sure to wind up in the new models.
