If you look all the way back to the beginning, long before Intel could be found inside, then Apple’s been selling white consumer grade notebooks since May 2001. Now, although the long-loved MacBook (nee iBook) isn’t dead yet, the time would seem to be right for it to fade to black.

I’ve got $30 set aside, mostly quarters and Sacajawea dollars, in a bulging envelope and now there’s a date written in pencil on it. Moreover, assuming I had a mayonnaise jar (or three) full o’ buck coins, the same day next month is expected to bring an updated Apple ultraportable, too.
The hyper liberal Bay State might not be your cup of tea, but it’s hard to imagine you won’t find a few friends given how numerous Mac users are there.

Rumors that Apple’s holding new Mac hardware until OS X 10.7 Lion ships in July have gained new heft. We’ve heard a lot about the MacBook Air, now there’s finally some information about the mothership’s two headless desktops
Last year’s student-teacher-family educational promotion put up to a quarter pound (i.e. iPod touch precooked weight) of stuff in our hands and Apple’s 2011 come on is for a little plastic card redeemable for virtual goods — which would you rather have?
Leaving the planet? It can’t hurt to get the blessing of the mayor and city council first where you want to build the vehicle. The Apple CEO’s plan to replace Hewlett-Packard’s collection of office buildings and parking lots with an architectural wonder and a whole bunch of trees appears on track to winning official sanction.
When the mothership killed off its one and only rack mountable back office iron, the Xserve, a relatively small yet vocal group complained bitterly of the loss. Some months later there’s evidence that Apple’s brewing a complete top-to-bottom server line redo.
