More MacBook LED and Santa Rosa Rumors

With the arrival of the first PC Santa Rosa based laptops, many expectations have sprung up for Apple to follow suit.

A Page 2 Rumor from Gizmodo claims that a Santa Rosa-based MacBook Pro could be coming as early as next week. This "rumor" however is credited as "informed speculation" and cites a "channel partner" as the source. Historically, channel partners have had no inside knowlege of upcoming model refreshes from Apple, so this source is difficult to believe. Appleinsider, however claims that a Santa Rosa based LED MacBook Pro is expected in the "second quarter of the year with an 800MHz frontside bus and second generation Core 2 Duo mobile processors ranging up to 2.4GHz with 4MB of L2 cache."

Meanwhile, CrunchGear counters this with a rumor claim of their own from their "source who works with Apple". According to their report, Santa Rosa based MacBooks will not be coming in the next few weeks or months. Instead, they claim that LED based laptops rumors are true and coming "in the next month". (Well, they actually say "OLED" but we presume they mistyped since there have been no OLED MacBook rumors).

While we have little historical context for CrunchGear's accuracy, their claim does correlate with ThinkSecret's claim that 15.4" LED MacBook Pros will be seen at WWDC (June 2007).
