Now that we've seen how well Think Secret does with Apple rumors, here's one from AppleInsider. They've gotten reports that Apple is starting manufacturing of Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros for the holidays.
On Apple's online store, stock MacBook Pros are still shipping immediately, but distributors and reseller partners are getting wait times of 2 to 3 weeks for custom orders. That may just mean they're stocking up in time for the holidays, or it could mean they're ramping down the Core Duos in favor of the Core 2 Duos. We'll have to wait and see.
The new models are reported to be 2.33GHz Core 2 Duos, which should be out in time to make sure Apple has a "Core 2 Duo" notebook presence this holiday. Our recommendation is to wait a few weeks to see what they're up to, just to be on the safe side.
