Apple ‘Sandy Bridge’ MacBook Pro 2011 to Launch on February 24
For everyone wanting to get new series of MacBook Pros, the wait is coming to an end. According to the latest reports, new MacBook Pro’s galloping on the latest Intel Sandy Bridge processors will be released on Thursday, February 24 giving the much needed speed boost. Apple last updated the MacBook Pros almost one year ago with Intel’s Core i5 and i7processors.
The new models of MacBook Pro 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. The new models are also expected to have a redesigned case that resembles latest MacBook Air and should be thinner, lighter with longer lasting batteries.
We’ve since heard reliable confirmation that this information is accurate and that the expected release date is next Thursday, February 24th. The move would be a bit unusual for Apple to launch new machines on a Thursday. So, if you are about to buy a new MacBook Pro, wait until next week
Apple is almost the last OEM to move to new Intel chips, and given that Sandy Bridge systems just resumed shipments, it’s very unlikely Apple will have MacBook Pros by February 24th. Not the strongest of legs to this rumor, but we’ll keep our eyes on that date anyway.
