Sources in Taiwan are dropping hints that Apple is poised to launch MacBooks with 64-bit Merom processors as soon as this September. As the rumor goes, Apple's manufacturers in Taiwan will start churning out such MacBooks sooner rather than later. This would come just a few weeks after release of the Mac Pro, Apple's first professional desktop based on an Intel processor.

Rumors have been circulating for a few weeks now with respect to Apple's designs on the latest Intel mobile processor—Merom—announced back in May. While it's no secret that Apple would like to start including the beefier processors in its MacBook line of notebooks as soon as possible, especially its MacBook Pro, nothing official has been announced. When Jobs hits to "go" button, we'll give you the skinny.
