Yesterday Apple finally sent out invites to an event that will be held in Cupertino, CA on October 14 at 10am Pacific time. The tag line for the event is “the spotlight turns to notebooks.” So, clearly we will be getting new notebooks.

The rumors are saying that we will be getting new designs for MacBooks and MacBook Pros. There is a possibility that the new MacBook will be priced at $799 on the low end separating it from the MacBook Pro line.

9 to 5 Mac is claiming that we won’t be getting all aluminum MacBooks but instead the new design will be made from both plastic and aluminum with the aluminum acting almost as a skeleton for the notebook.

There have also been some rumors stating that there will be a 13″ MacBook Pro that will have all the features of the MacBook Pro but with a much smaller display.

I personally believe that we will be getting new MacBooks and MacBook Pros and I subscribe to the 9 to 5 Mac theory stating that the new MacBooks will be made from plastic and aluminum.
