It has just been rumored that the new aluminum Macbooks are being shipped. There have been some posts lately indicating a great possibility of the new macbooks being released on mid-October(specifically Oct 14th). This now makes it even more possible. Here's the story.
"Barrons reports on an analyst note from Citigroup's Richard Gardner who claims to have received confirmation that new MacBooks are shipping.
The report cites "field checks" as the source of the information and describes the new MacBooks with a "very thin aluminum casing, an LED-backlit display and an aggressive entry-level price point."
This description matches many of the circulating rumors, including photos that claimed to depict the new MacBook. Also, the "aggressive" price point could also represent the lower margins that Apple predicted for future quarters during their Q3 2008 Financial Results. At that time, Apple described a "future product transition" which could impact margins.
The most recent claims have pinpointed October 14th as the possible day for the MacBook release."

This is great news that could mean apple REALLY IS planning to release them on october 14th or even earlier. Better yet this tells us they will start selling them as soon as they release them and not after.
