New MacBooks around the corner...
After delaying the release for several weeks because of some last-minute tweaking, Apple is said to be ready to unleash both the new MacBook Pro
models in the coming two weeks. Releases will, according to one source, be timed one week apart in order to give each product line its spotlight. The news should arrive, we're told, next Tuesday and the one after that.
Both lines will get the Core 2 Duo treatment. The Pro models will get the higher end part with larger Level 2 Cache, although even the lower-end model to be used in the black and white MacBook models should give the notebooks either a performance or battery boost - depending on what Apple wants to focus on. But don't expect a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo model to blow a 2 GHz Core Duo (old) model out of the water. For the Pro models, though, we expect a 25% performance increase across the board - plus, of course, the return of FW 800 to the 15" model.
