Apple have been awarded a patent that will allow them integrate wireless antennas into keyboards. Future Macbooks may come with 3G and GPS built into keyboards and provide a fully mobile solution to users.

A few weeks ago Apple dropped the white Macbook from their laptop range. The polycarbonate Macbook was first introduced in May 2006 and had its last update in May 2010. Check out the gallery to view some vintage Macbooks.
Following an earlier MacTrast report detailing detailing differences with Macs shipped after Lion’s release (and that they would be difficult to restore from hard drive failure or replacement), it appears that Apple has heard our cries.

According to recent reports, available stock of Apple’s $999 white MacBook has become quite constrained. Combine this with the rumors of other refreshes (like the MacBook Air) and OS X Lion in July, and the possibility of a new entry-level MacBook rises to the surface.
