New MacBooks Finally Going Into Production
As if this weekend's excitement wasn't sufficient, less than 48 hours after the release of the iPad, we're hearing rumblings about the new MacBook Pros finally going into production. Today, Taiwan's Apple Daily
leaked info suggesting that the computers will go into production within a few weeks. Although we've heard rumors before about a suspected production date, this time, however, the information seems legit.
Initially, the MacBooks were planned for a March release. But as a result of supply issues with Intel's Core iX series of laptop processors, Mac users were once again subjected to a delay. And with all the hullabaloo surrounding the iPad's launch, it's a veritable miracle that Apple is making progress on any other project beside that of the tablet's launch, promotion, and now troubleshooting.
According to Taiwan's Apple Daily, the new MacBook Airs will be pretty sweet and come packed with Intel Core i3 series chips. Obviously, Apple has taken heed of past customer complaints by really beefing up the guts of the computer, as indicated by word that the new MacBook Pros will serve up 640GB Hard drives or 248GB SSDs. Best of all, you'll get more juice out of your MacCook's battery, with word that the device's battery life has been extended to eight hours.
As we know, even if the new MacBooks go into production this month, it will be a while before they reach us. And, for now, at least, it seems as though we may have to wait until Apple takes the stage this summer at the WWDC conference to unveil the new MacBook Pros/Airs. Then again, by that time, the computers may be sharing the forum with the new iPhone
