Rumor: I am buying a new MacBook on Tuesday

According to MacRumors, I will be buying a new MacBook this Tuesday, and I am very excited!

Allegedly, my new MacBook will sport the updated Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics chip, which implies I will be getting the Santa Rosa chipset as well. I can neither confirm nor deny this rumor until I check with my wife (keeper of the checkbook), but reliable sources have confirmed to me that if I can somehow outline that a convincing case that a MacBook is necessary for “research purposes”, I may be able to get away with it.

Unfortunately, these same sources have also confirmed that we are flat broke. But hey. You have to spend money to make money, right? Only 2 more days ’till we know for sure!

  3. Morad,

    If you hadn’t heard, Apple updated the Macbooks yesterday, and I placed my order yesterday morning.


    I bought the lowest end model, despite my severe pissery at it still only having the combo drive. I plan to only use it for blogging and light photoshop work, but something inside me feels like it should be able to burn dvds. Oh well, I have 2 other Macs that can if need be.

    I went for 2 GB of RAM and 160 GB HD as I think those specs are more important to me than DVD-Burning, and Apple claims because of that, it will take a week to ship.


    oh well, maybe I can try and save some money in the meantime.
