eve of Apple special media event, thinner MacBook tomorrow

apple_media_event_081014.jpg

One month ago, I was given some detailed specs on upcoming new MacBooks. Cnet News.com had a report that Apple will update the MacBooks on 14th October. According to my source, the Cnet report was very accurate.

The new MacBook will be thinner and lighter. New MacBooks will feature very fast DDR3 SDRAM as main memory. The graphic card would be better than current ones, and there will be no Firewire 400 ports in some models. Sorry, I can't tell you more. Also, the RAM size is likely to be fixed.

How accurate is my source? I shall find out tomorrow. However, from the past experience, it has been extremely accurate. For those who wonder, I am very happy with the MacBook Pro(15-inch, 2.5GHz) I bought in late February this year. There's no immediate plan on purchasing another Mac laptop. However, I am keeping an eye on the updates of Mac mini or Apple TV.

Apple last updated MacBook in late February with some speed bump.

If these laptops come with fixed RAM then its a no go for me. That is going backwards in the laptop market. Consumers want to be able to upgrade their purchase. Unless this laptop with fixed RAm comes with 4gb which would be the max for most laptops, Apple will have lost another sale from me.
