It seems the Santa Rosa-based Penryn MacBook/Pros announced by Apple yesterday are already outdated. According to Daily Tech, Intel will soon abandon the Santa Rosa platform for Montevina aka Centrino 2 in June. Montevina has the pleasure of boasting a 1066MHz front-side bus and processors ranging from 2.26GHz to 2.8GHz. This does not make me very happy, but I won’t be ditching this fresh new beauty come June. Unless WiMAX is included. So for those of you on the fence about getting a new MacBook or MBPro, I’d suggest you wait. June is not too far. Intel is making it way too easy to know when a refresh is coming and frustrating at the same time. Oh well.
