Maybe Apple hasn’t figured out the fact that the company has forgotten its Mac since the blaze of popularity of iPad and iPhone 4. But the idea seems to end now since Apple has told the public that their focus will be back to the Mac. Apple is going to throw “Back to the Mac” event on October 20, but still the companies probably hasn’t make significant improvement to MacBook and MacBook pro, in fact they might introduce other new laptops during the show.
Speaking of the upcoming Apple’s event, there are several points that are expected to be announced. First off is the upgrade of newest Intel Core CPUs. The processor runs on Mac laptops should be Core processor technology like Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz in Apple Macbook, 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo in Macbook Pro 13-inch, and Macbook Air.
Second point, this would be great for Apple to update the graphic chip like automatic switchable graphics as perfect addition for its laptops line like the ones which have been included in Macbook pro 15- and 17-inch. Third point is dealing with retina display on laptops. Currently, the iPhone 4’s Retine Display with a higher screen resolution has been marketed, so it sounds nice for Apple to insert it as well to MacBook and MacBook 13-inch laptops, even with higher resolution.
The fourth is about the screen resolution. Although the current screen resolution doesn’t come with particular issue, this can be a good step for Apple to update the screen into higher resolution one. As you know that MacBook has a 16:10 aspect ratio and resolutions of 1,280-by-800 and the 1,440-by-900, but other laptops screens even have higher since they have moved to a 16:9 aspect ratio with 1,366-by-768 and 1,600-by-900.
Speaking of fifth point means you are speaking about hard disk drive. Apple’s base configuration should not be 2GB of memory and 250GB hard drive anymore. Many laptops are already come with 4GB of DDR3 memory and 320GB-500GB hard drive since the price of these components have been sinking to new low. Furthermore, it is an unfortunate that Apple’s MacBook pro 17-inch doesn’t have DisplayPort and HDMI-out learning that Apple TV and Mac mini at least have already been packed with an HDMI port.
Other significant points are expected to appear at the event is the SD card slots to be available in MacBook, MacBook Air and the 17-inch, WiMAX technology, Blu-ray drive, and of course the smaller MacBook Air.
