MacBooks on Oct. 14th?
An anticipated redesign of the MacBook line will not be announced until next month, anonymous sources claim. The sources, described as "familiar with Apple's hardware plans," say that the new MacBooks will be revealed on October 14th, despite the publicity opportunity presented by the September 9th event. Daring Fireball observes, though, that Apple has not traditionally combined Mac and iPod announcements in its September presentations.
A source with a "solid track record," meanwhile, refers to a product nicknamed "the Brick" being announced on the 14th, though what it could be remains unclear. Speculation suggests any number of possibilities, including a new Mac mini or Apple TV, or accessories such as a docking station or new form of power adapter.
