Just a couple of weeks after the MacBook Pro was upgraded with Intels Core 2 Duo chip, an online vendor is offering a 13.3-inch Core 2 Duo MacBook for pre-sale, upstaging any Apple announcement. Is it for real, just a misprint or a malicious trick?
UK online retailer Play.com are offering a MacBook with a Core 2 Duo chip, available for pre-order with an expected release date of November 13.
The specifications listed are effectively identical to the existing 13.3-inch MacBook, with specific mention of the Core 2 Duo processor in the listed specifications.
However in the descriptive text below, only the Intels older Core Duo processor is mentioned.
Interestingly, its not the first time Play.com have offered a Core 2 Duo MacBook for pre-sale.
They did so a couple of weeks ago, only to remove the listing. Now the listing is back, although theres no word, official or otherwise, from Apple to confirm or deny the new MacBooks impending availability.
