Apple is allegedly ready to release updated MacBook Pro models some time next week, according to the latest rumors. Apparently upgrades for the 13, 15 and 17-inch models are all in the works, although the changes compared the current shipping models will apparently be relatively minor.
According to 9 to 5 Mac’s anonymous sources, the new MacBook Pro models will get Intel Sandy Bridge processors that offer better performance, and Bluetooth 4.0 support. The sources also said that Apple isn’t expected to change the pricing on its MacBook Pro lineup.
Apple’s last major updated for the MacBook Pro line happened in February with the introduction of Thunderbolt ports, Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, and support for up to 16GB RAM.
While the MacBook Pro is ripe for a refresh, there hasn’t been any word from Apple as to whether or not new models are ready to roll out. For now, updates for the MacBook line should be treated as just rumors — until Apple makes an official announcement.
