Over the past week, rumors have been circulating that we’ll see a MacBook Pro refresh sometime before March. A few days ago, AppleInsider reported that production on the upcoming notebooks is already underway and that volume shipments may begin in about a week.
Meanwhile, a second person familiar with the matter has hinted that a move to Intel’s new Sandy Bridge architecture won’t be the only highlight of the new notebook lineup, as Apple appears poised to up the value proposition of the new models through the addition of some enhancements of its own.
It’s unclear, however, whether those enhancements are related to the “slight changes” in the notebook’s unibody chassis design that the Cupertino-based company is rumored to have implemented, or something entirely different.
Following that, MacRumors reported this past weekend, citing reliable sources, that Apple is planning to release new MacBook Pro models on Thursday January 24th.
