You love your MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks but in the recent months of coverage surrounding the iPad (which also makes thousands of delicious julienne-style fries), you’ve wondered if it was due for anything new?

Per Taiwanese blog Apple Daily, sources close to the story say the only reason the MacBook lines haven’t already been updated is because of chip shortages from Intel. The same report claims that all MacBooks will be available with not only the newest Intel processors, but also up to 640 GB hard drives and 8-hour battery performance throughout the line.

The MacBook Pro line’s last significant update was last June — and I know of several people who have been holding off on a new purchase until the line is updated. With Apple the lone remaining major manufacturer yet to integrate Intel’s newest i5 and i7 processors into their portables.

Stay tuned for additional details as they become available and let us know what you’d like to see in Apple’s next generation of notebook computers.

  1. All I want is the ExpressCard slot to come back – that is the reason I put off updating last time. I have an ExpressCard for photo cards, and one for eSATA drives and one for additional Firewire800 drives… And yes, I did write Apple immediately and request the next release undo that terrible change on the Pro models. That is one of the reasons those models are bought – because some people need the extras and pay for them. Stop putting consumer level options on the Pro level products.
