According to reports from MacRumors and 9to5Mac, the long-anticipated update of the MacBook Pro line will occur on February 24th, which incidentally happens to be Steve Job’s birthday! Both sites give a date and list some model numbers of the new lineup, however 9t05Mac has gained some further insights, listing Best Buy skus and pricing information as well.
The model numbers and pricing are said to be as follows:
MC724LL/A-SKU# 9755395 – $1499 – 13 inch
MC700LL/A-SKU# 9755322 – $1199 – 13 inch

MC723LL/A-SKU# 1535845 – $2199 – 15 inch
MC721LL/A-SKU# 1535836 – $1799 – 15 inch
Several things are being rumored about the new lineup, including built-in solid state storage, a re-design, the removal of the optical drive, a thinner and lighter construction, and so forth. As always, only time will divulge the full truth, and we’ll be up bright and early Thursday morning waiting for further news.
