Apple Macbook Update Soon!

I put this hear since the official Update is not in place yet. The Apple Store has been updating since last night (as I was unable to get status on my Final Cut Studio Purchase) and now the whole thing is down.

Macrumors, Thinksecret, and others are reporting Five new Macbooks models to be announed at 8AM. Could be interesting. I am hoping they are also announcing that FCS 2 will ship.

I looked it over on www.apple.com and saw that it's a small update. I'm glad the MacBook Pro didn't update, since I bought a 15 inch last week (2.16 ghz, non-glossy screen).

The rumor is that the update for the 15" Macbook Pro is coming by WWDC on June 11th that includes the first LED lit screen for Apple.

I don't need an LED screen--if they say there are 16-core MacBook Pros for the same price, I might be a little bit upset, grin.

What if it is a touch screen? That's what I am hoping is the "Secret Features" that are in Leopard. It makes sense that Apple would try to impliment their revolutionary Touch Screen Technology. The thing is though, the LED screens aren't ready at all on the other sizes. Things are going to be very interesting come WWDC and I can't wait.
