New MacBook Pro seems to be likely

Written by David Stellmack

Supply shortage seems to be more than a shortage
Several sources that we have spoken with have indicated that the supply of the MacBook Pro is a bit tight, with both the 15-inch and 17-inch units difficult to get at the moment. In the past when this has happened with Apple products it oftentimes indicates that a new version of the product is just around the corner.

Non–Apple store retailers that we spoke with have indicated that they have not been able to get a steady stream of the MacBook Pro unit since Christmas, and even around the holidays things were perhaps a bit tight. With Amazon quoting up to a two-month wait to ship your MacBook Pro, it puzzles us how Apple is still saying orders from their online store will ship within 24 hours of placing the order.

At any rate, with the recent announcements from Intel we do suspect that Apple might be trying to move through inventory while it gets ready to launch new models. Right now, we can’t say when this will happen; but as we shake the tree… watch for it.

A MBP refresh in February?

That's...




...right on schedule.

Next up: People expressing surprise over an iPad2 release in April, iPhone 5 release in July and new iPod/MBA in September.

Hopefully they put Sandy Bridge processors in the 13" model. I'm in need of a new laptop and a 13" MBP with a 2540M would be nice. Then I'd toss in a decent SSD, an Opti-bay hard drive adapter and max the memory.

Quoting Naterm:

lol. This is Apple we're talking about here. NONE of that is going to happen. (Maybe SB in the 13", but even then I'd count on i3s and MAYBE the 2520M.)

Yeah, I really don't think the 2540 will be in there either. I'd bet the 2520 will be. The high-end 13" model has usually had the lowest CPU offering from the 15" model.
