According to our source, Apple are planning to introduce 15.4-inch MacBooks in the second quarter of 2007. The new model will fill the gap between the company's 13.3-inch MacBooks and the 15.4- and 17-inch MacBook Pros that form its current notebook line up, and is expected to boost shipments of Apple's Intel-powered MacBooks.

Currently, 13.3-inch MacBooks are manufactured by Asustek Computer, while the new 15.4-inch model will be made by Quanta Computer, which also manufactures the 15.4- and 17-inch MacBook Pros for Apple. Foxconn is said to have been in the running for the lucrative 15.4-inch manufacturing contract but was eventually unsuccessful

Prices for the 15.4-inch MacBook models are likely to be more competitive than their 13.3-inch counterparts, due largely to the relatively lower cost of 15.4-inch LCD panels, and will therefore help push further sales of MacBooks. The 13.3-inch MacBooks are currently available at US$1,099-US$1,499. The 15.4- and 17-inch MacBook Pros are currently available at a range between US$1,999 and US$2,799.

Shuttle has announced the availability of its first quad-core powered SFF workstations. XPC P2 3700w workstations can be configured with up to 8GB of DDR2 ECC memory – a perfect match for animators. Shuttle offers the XPC P2 3700w workstations with Microsoft's Windows Vista Business 64-bit or Windows XP Professional 64-bit to take advantage of higher memory configuration. Additionally, the XPC P2 3700w workstations offer a variety of storage sizes and are configurable with up to 2.2 terabytes of storage space. Shuttle offers the XPC P2 3700w with a selection of ATI FireGL and Nvidia Quadro graphics cards. Quad-core powered Shuttle P2 3700w workstations are available immediately starting at $1649.

I like shuttles, but not too keen on Vista 64bit as being the only OS on there
