Rumor: MacBooks Slim Down In October

So you held off on buying a MacBook till after WWDC juuuuuuuust in case a new model was announced. Well friends, do you think you can wait just a little bit longer? CG recently spoke to a “trusted source” that has given us “reliable” intel in the past, and he/she/it says to expect new MacBook models around September October for back-to-school time. He/she/it says they’ll be about half the thickness of current models (which would be quite the feat) and they’ll be made from new plastics/materials.

This “trusted, reliable source” also says the iMac is getting the refresh treatment, too, with similar plastics/materials as the new MacBooks. He/she/it did not know, however, whether or not the 17-inch iMac would be sticking around. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we know.

UPDATE: Just to clarify, the innards of the MacBooks will for all intents and purposes be the same, though, he/she/it says there’ll be some updates to “speeds and feeds.”
