News, Rumors

MacRumors points us to Danish blogger Kenneth Lund who claims to have evidence that new MacBook Pro models will hit stores on Tuesday, March 1st. Apple’s line of MacBook Pro’s were last refreshed in April 2010 and the time is ripe for an upgrade. The most recent MacBook Pro models came with Intel’s Core i5 and i7 processors and it’s believed that the next-gen models will incorporate Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors, though a glitch in the Sandy Bridge chipset might delay things only slightly.

Previous rumors have suggested that Apple’s next-gen lineup of MacBook Pro’s will sport a complete re-design, will do away with optical drives, will include SSD storage, and will feature Intel’s light peak technology for blazing fast transfer speeds of 10 Gbps both up and down.

Though we haven’t heard anything new as of late, it’s also believed that Apple will refresh its iMac line with a new screen size some time in the first quarter of 2011.
