Apple's just sent out invites for the October 14 MacBook event being held in Cupertino at Apple's headquarters. How do we know it's about MacBook? Well, take a look at the image. The fun starts 10:00 AM, PST. We'll see you there early that morning for our usual entertaining pre-game commentary before the actual Liveblog starts. Looks like we'll get to see which one of those MacBook "brick" rumors will be coming true. We're hoping for the one where Steve Jobs gives all attendees a new car.
I'm pretty excited about the "all aluminum" MB/MBP case, should make a pretty stiff laptop (which is a good thing). Curious if it will effect price. Personally, I never thought MB's/MBP's suffered from being too flimsy. But hay, if it doesn't raise prices, who cares. Though, I'm curious if this sort of manufacturing will effect Apple's environmental rating. It may be that this sort of manufacturing process requires more resources, and if there's no actually benefit, I may be turned-off a little.
... I wonder how this case will react to exploding batteries. Will it maintain structural integrity, pop out the bottom, or send molten "magma" ...I mean aluminum spraying all over the place.
