Back since the days of my old blog (around six months ago) up till now, i have been waiting for serious Apple upgrades for the MacBook & the MacBook Pro. I have always delayed my purchase of an Apple notebook due to imminent upgrades. I had to hold back earlier this year because of looming upgrades in February. I was disappointed really with the upgrades. Yes the OS is enough to make it a great deal, but the MB/MBP was lacking essential aspects of a notebook.Now, rumors are circulating again, and pics are leaking on several sites about upcoming upgrades in both the Macbook and Macbook Pro lines. Furthermore, the long-talked-about dream of a Macbook tablet is also awaited. Anyways, on GIZMODO, they are hinting on a glass trackpad with a screen under it. While that is a bit too transcendent, it could be true. Apple have always been known of packing their products with new innovations. While those new innovations are cool and all, the question i propose is this: Why is Apple over-looking essentials of a notebook in today's market? I mean, how long is it going to take Apple to put Blu Ray slots in those notebooks? Hell, the 13.3 incher from Sony (the Z) has a Blu Ray drive in it! Come on now Apple.
I was just reading Macrumors [Link to Article] a while ago, and it seems the new notebooks aren't coming till the end of September! That is pretty late for me. Yes I have waited a lot, but i can't wait any longer 'cuz i need a new notebook for University and i need at least 2weeks to get used to a Mac. This is disappointing.
