With the supposed October 14th MacBook makeover event just over three weeks away, hardware detail rumors are starting to heat up.  The latest is the posting by Mac Soda of the chipset choice.  According to them*, Apple will forgo the standard Intel laptop motherboard and instead use NVIDIA’s new MCP7A chipset line.  This line is noted for its high performance per Watt ratio, DDR3-1333 memory and the ability to include HDMI output.  Theoretically, it could also help with BluRay support as well.
