New MacBook Pro in April?

A new Apple MacBook Pro could be just around the corner

By - March 16, 2012 Share on LinkedIn

Apple is planning to release a new, thinner version of the 15-inch MacBook Pro.

This is the word from How To Arena, which cited a “reliable source in the Far East Asian supply chain” in its report.

An earlier rumour by Digitimes also hinted that Apple will be releasing a new, thin MacBook air.

What is up for debate however is whether the new MacBook Pro will be an ultra-thin model similar to the MacBook Air, or whether it will retain its current design and opt for a thinner form factor.

How To Arena notes that the new device will feature Intel Core i5 and i7 processors based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, and ship towards the end of April.

This coincides with Intel’s expected 8 April launch of the Sandy Bridge platform.
