The Apple MacBook has quickly been forgotten about what with Apple's Pro and Air ranges storming ahead and rumours of a new and updated Mac Mini gathers pace. But it seems the entry-level machine is all set for a much-needed update, amid growing speculation that supplies of the distinctive white laptop are quickly drying up.
AppleInsider reports that stores across the US are struggling to meet demand, with MacConnection, J&R and Amazon US all sold out. A cursory search by T3 this morning showed only one model left in stock at Amazon UK, although the UK Apple store is still delivering the white machine within 24 hours.
The news comes just a day after rumours of a Macbook Air update emerged on the blogosphere.
The white MacBook has not been boosted since the end of 2009, meaning it’s long overdue an upgrade. But what can we expect? Well, if rumours are to be believed, Intel Sandy Bridge processors, Thunderbolt and maybe even FireWire, to name a few.
The Macbook is Apple's best-selling laptop to date, selling over 10million units since launching in 2006.
