    Default New MacBook Pros Arriving February 24th?


    If you’ve been saving your pennies waiting to buy a shinny new MacBook Pro, you might want to wait until next week to get one. According to the latest reports, new MacBook Pro’s will be released on Thursday, February 24. Many retailers have seen their stock of MacBook Pros dwindle of late and many international Apple Stores online, such as the one in Australia, now list some MacBook Pro’s shipping times to be as long as 2-4 business days instead of the usual 24 hours.

    New part numbers are now circulating that are thought to be for the new MacBook Pros arriving next week. The new models are listed as MC720, MC721, MC723, MC724, and MC725. Apple currently offers six standard configurations, two for the 13-inch model, three for the 15-inch model and one for the 17-inch model. Apple may simply be streamlining the number of models down a more reasonable size, as customers who require specific configurations have the option of customizing their machines before checking out.

    The MacBook Pro line was last updated about a year ago and is due for a refresh. The new MacBook Pros are expected to ship with Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge processors, which should offer a much needed speed boost. The new models are also expected to have a redesigned case that resembles latest MacBook Air and should be thinner, lighter and have longer lasting batteries. Solid-state drives may also be standard on these new machines as well. When Thursday rolls around next week, we’ll know for sure just how accurate the rumors have been. Check back next week for complete coverage.

    Been wanting to buy a MBP since last November, but I knew the cycle for refresh was soon to be over. Glad I'm still waiting, can't wait waiting, so exited all this wait waiting is almost over.

    Return it to the Apple store and you will be eligible to exchange for a shiny new one.

    Doesn'nt Apple usually hold an event when a new product or majorupgradeis released? Or is the compnay skipping it because of the absence of Steve Jobs?

    I just bought my 15" MBP before Christmas. I had a GPU issue and they just replaced it in store for a brand new one about a week ago. I should have left it in the box and not opened it. Dammit. Hope I can sell it for close to what I bought it for. If so, then I will have to do that.

    Not interested unless they have a good 512MB graphics card as standard. Please make the "Pro" mean something Apple

    ,Of course they will. Apple won't keep making old models.

    Yes, but not usually significantly enough to warrant buying last year's tech of this year's

    Good luck with that. I'm not saying that a mbp isn't worth it, but mbp and inexpensive don't belong in the same sentence.

    Depending on where you are shopping, the discount is only 50 to 100 USD's. Any person would be better off getting the new model at that point!
