There is a recent report that suggests that the new MacBooks we though were going to be announced at the last Apple event are actually being shipped right now to stores. 


The leak suggests that the MacBook will be a "very thin" aluminum casing, LED backlighting, and an "aggressive entry-level price point." Some analysts have suggested that the cheapest MacBook could drop in cost to $999."


This could be more confirmation of an event in October or just a quick update, but we think this sort of announcement warrants an event.
