C2D MacBook Pro (but not MacBooks)

Well, as widely predicted the MacBook Pro was updated today, with FW800 and dual layer DVD writing, as well as the Core2Duo processor. But any hope I had that they’d do the whole laptop range at once has been eliminated.

I shall cling on to the hope that, as with the original MacBook release, the budget version will follow after a mere three weeks.

  1. I was in London yesterday, and I saw some small discounts on the black MacBook but not the white ones. I wonder whether that means anything.

  2. @tarquin – good spot, you’re getting my hopes up

    @gridman – true, but discounts are not the Apple way so perhaps (he said hopefully) they were having difficulty moving the stock at the old price and need to clear them before the C2Ds come in (reality says that’s also not the Apple way, but I ignore it)

    @sunshine – interesting suggestion, but dismantling an iBook for a temporary fix seems a lot of effort for too small a return.  Regarding your other question, see this post.
