We've been covering the "Brick" rumors for several weeks now. An October 14 event has been a persistent part of those rumors. Now that Apple has confirmed the notebook event on, you guessed it, October 14, should we be holding our breath for a "Brick?"
Now that we know the event is real you can imagine that the rumors will probably kick into over drive. Boy did they!
To confuse us even more, Apple.pro has posted the following out-of-focus video.
The new notebooks appear to adopt the same keyboard used in the MacBook Air and they all appear to be made from aluminum. There is a rumor that the 13" MacBook may arrive clad in all aluminum with a starting price point around $800.00 making it about $300 less than the current low end model that starts at $1,099. This might be the cost savings we anticipated would smash Windows' hold on the market. Other rumors speculate that the new MacBooks would arrive with beefier video cards to facilitate better gaming.
No one will know for sure if any of these rumors are true until October 14th. So, if you are like us, there are a few sleepless nights ahead while we wait to find out. Watch for Mac|Life's live coverage of the event next Tuesday starting at 10 am.
