While everyone has been expecting new MacBook Pros since Macworld, yesterday all of the major rumors sites got word from retail shops that new MacBook priced models were coming as well.  What does this mean? 

If Apple releases MacBooks and not Pro models, it will mean either something is seriously wrong with the upcoming Pro pipeline (they are way overdue) or that Apple is waiting for an event to launch them because of a design overhaul- most likely alongside the iPhone SDK.

Something else to consider perhaps Apple is making an aluminum MacBook and essentially merging the product lines – like when the 12 inch Powerbook existed.  Maybe we’ll see a cross the board update? 

Or maybe we’ll see nothing in the MacBook/Pro arena and have to wait even longer :(
