Rumor: Apple to add 64-bit Merom chips to MacBook Pro Soon

DigiTimes and jkOnTheRun leak a rumor in reference to AsusTeK (manufacturer for MacBook) & Quanta (manufacturer for MacBook Pro) that we may see the MacBook Pro with a 64-bit Merom CPU (the Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile) as early as September or October. The new chip would replace the current Yonah chip (hat tip to The Apple Core at ZDNet).

I'm still using my PowerBook G4 15" (which has served me very well), and have delayed purchasing the first-generation Intel-based MacBook Pro. The addition of the Core 2 Duo Mobile may be just the thing that gets me to upgrade.
