Nvidia graphics chip launch points to possible October 14th new Apple MacBook debut

“Apparently the day nVIDIA was slated to introduce the integrated graphics chip the new MacBook will use has been moved… from September 30th to October 15th,” Mac Soda reports.

“Recall the fact that the MacBook event was originally scheduled for September 29th, and was postponed to October 14th,” Mac Soda reports.

“I find it hard to believe that the announcement wasn’t moved because the MacBook event was moved, so look at this as further confirmation to our report: the MCP7A-U chipset will be in the next MacBook,” Mac Soda reports.

  1. i love apple, but yes they do over price their products a bit. Apple knows its their software that is superior, not their hardware. so at this time and to help them pull the market shares, cut us consumers a break, we are loyal to your products. you’ve already got a huge bank account, you’ll be fine get more people on board to buy your stuff at greater rates and you’ll definetly be taken care of in the future, now is the time while MS is down and crawling in their own $hit.

  2. it’s not so much, gimme gimme, Apple has the full advantage of taking a huge stance here to offer their high quality products at a rate that would make consumers feel like they are getting the best(which they are) but at a substantial price that they dont feel like they are breaking the bank for what has been made as luxury or upper class. Good article, but lets just wait to see what they actually have than get our hopes up for a startrek tricorder, (gee that would be an awesome iphone app)

  3. The TechPopulist Manifesto: I want the best, and I want it cheap.

    Seen on a chick program last night (“Lipstick”?): All business transactions evolve within a causal triangle. On one side there is “Good.” On another is “Fast.” On the third is “Cheap.” Pick any two: The third just ain’t gonna happen.

    Something similar applies here, I believe.

  4. “I find it hard to believe that the announcement wasn’t moved because the MacBook event was moved”

    Ummmm, probably the other way around – Apple postponed their event because NVidia said they couldn’t talk about the chip until then.

    Also, who ever said that Apple was having an event on September 29th? So, this is a rumor about a rumor?
