According to MacSlice, Apple is set to roll out a new line of MacBooks and MacBook Pros in the near future. I know what I want for Christmas....
The specs sound very tasty:
- New design, Black & Silver aluminum
- Lighter than current model
- New style backlit Apple keyboard
- Larger trackpad with ?unusual? features
- Improved battery life
- Biometric fingerprint reader (May be part of the ?unusual trackpad? or will be concealed in speakers)
- LED in 17 inch screens
- Core 2 Extreme Mobile (X7900) model with 2.8GHz
- NVIDIA GeForce 8600m GT (256mb on lower model 512mb option on higher)
- SuperDrive & Option for Blu-ray (Single layer)
It's been too long since Apple significantly updated its MacBook/Pro lines. Given that it's increasingly the open-source development platform of choice for many, this is relevant to open source.
