We heard rumors last week that there may be a new MacBook Pro line about to surface. We have now seen pricing for the new laptops, however the pricing for each device are the same price as the ones that are currently available. Based on the numbers found in the inventory previously the devices are said to only have minor updates.
The rumors that have now been confirmed started when the new Sandy Bridge processor was released by Intel only a short while ago. The rumpors started that Apple would take advantage of this new processor in their laptops. The newly released processors from Intel had a Quad Core i7 processors with speeds of 2.4GHz, 2.5GHz and 2.7GHz. It also has a Dual Core i7 at 2.8GHz models. If you compare these speeds with world CPUs you will find that they are one of the fastest if not the fastest indeed.
However, due to heat constraints of the MacBook Pro design, Apple will be unable to use the 2.7GHz Quad Core in their notebooks. We are think that we will be seeing a launch sometime by the end of next week.
