I would imagine this is true, although it might be a little while before the product is refreshed again considering that it was just refreshed a couple of months ago. Only Apple knows for sure, the rest is just rumors and speculation.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

That's basically it. Jobs said their goal was to have all of their displays converted to LED backlighting within a year or two, but the MacBooks just got refreshed so I don't think it will be anytime soon. Apple would have a lot of angry customers if they released LED backlighting after just releasing an update a month ago!

Most notebooks use a CCFL tube (think of it like a really, really tiny flourescent light bulb). They use significantly more power than an LED backlight, which are just starting to hit the market in modern laptops. I believe (and someone correct me if I'm wrong) they also have a longer lifespan - not that most people will ever see a CCFL backlight go bad though (they're usually rated for 10,000+ hours).

Aren't LED displays more environmentally friendly too?

Yes, they are more friendly to the environment. Don't expect Macbook's to have LED backlights until Apple can accommodate it's professional notebooks first. 17inch MBP's are still awaiting the LED update.

Wouldn't it make sense if both were released at the same time?

What makes everyone think Apple will update the macbook just becuase of Leopard. Its way to soon to update the macbook, LED is not a good enough reason. LED would have to come packaged along with other internal upgrades. I would just expect them to start packaging Leopard with new machines.

It's all conjecture, no one knows but Apple. You might be absolutely correct.

I don't see the benefit of having an LED screen...It wouldn't make me mad about them updating it. I really wouldn't care.
