This is nothing but a rumor right now, but, like the majority of Apple rumors, is very exciting. Apple is allegedly getting ready to update its MacBook Pro line of laptops. The new MacBook Pros will have the latest Intel processors, the mobile Core i5 and/or Core i7. Other laptop makers—HP, Toshiba, Dell, and Sony—have already moved to using these new chips.
The speculation seems legitimate because blogs are citing new part numbers that have been independently confirmed as real. The new part numbers could also indicate that the update will happen in the near future. The updates will be for 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pros, according to some blogs.
Also, Best Buy is showing certain 15.4-inch MacBook Pros to be out of stock, both online and in their stores. It remains to be seen if this is indicative of an imminent update.
