    Appleinsider reports that Apple is preparing for product launches as early as September:

    Based on various reports from around the world, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company this week is placing WWDC '06 in the rear-view mirror and shifting gears towards its fall product line refreshes, which are due to start turning up next month.
    This along with reports end-of-life notices for Apple's current iPod nano are suggestive of imminent product refreshes. This correlates with a recent Chinese report that Apple is readying both of its laptop models for Core 2 Duo "Merom" CPUs next month.

    Readers will remember that pre-WWDC reports also claimed that Apple had placed large orders of Core 2 Duo processors, with analyst speculation of the same.

    Maybe I just don't get it, but I don't understand when people make a big deal out of the latest chip as if their decision to purchase completely hinges on it. It's almost as if the someone is giving them the option between a Merom MacBook and a hot steaming pile of crap. (Wait to purchase unless you want to get that poop!).The machines out now are amazingly fast and wonderful machines. If a Merom MacBook came out next week, I wouldn't bat an eyelash. My machine is a wonderful one which has met and exceeded my expectations.
