Apple's MacBook line to get an upgrade

The MacBook is getting an upgrade...tantalizing.

Tech Culture

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.
