Since everyone and their brother is weighing in on on perhaps the most predictable Apple product unveiling event in history, I thought I would share with my readers the following news. This list has been absolutely guaranteed and confirmed by 110% reliable Apple sources!
Apple is redoing their entire notebook line – rather than the current (conventional) three lines (MacBook Air, MacBook, and MacBook Pro), the company will have four lines. They’ve also decided to add some instant credibility and name recognition by subtly working in some familiar names:
- MacBook Palin – light weight and easy on the eyes, this netbook model comes with a very basic version of Mac OS X, an oddly reconfigured version of iLife, iSight that can only see Alaska and Russia, but strangely none of the capabilities we’ve come to expect in a computer
- MacBook Biden – a real workhorse, this model comes with all of Apple’s pro applications and even has a massive set of documents and working files pre-installed, including quite a few that you might be better off without, since it tends to open them in Preview at unfortunate times and places
- MacBook McCain – actually just a PowerBook 150, the McCain model proved tough enough to take on any task, so Apple will just start producing it again, complete with System 7.6.1, but updated with improved suspend capability
- MacBook Obama – this is the carved-from-aluminum all-in-one that everyone is hoping for, complete with a touch screen, multi-touch glass trackpad with display, the latest Intel CPU and NVIDIA graphics adapter, and OS X 10.6, but you might want to wait ’till they get all the bugs out
