New Ultra-Thin MacBook Pros Coming in April?

Apple’s super thin next-gen MacBook Pro models may arrive sooner than expected. DigiTimes reports (via MacRumors) that the new models could launch as soon as April, stating at one point that the updated models could be released in April.

Apple is expected to launch upgraded 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros in April with initial shipments estimated to reach 900,000 units.

The redesigned models will reportedly come in 13 and 15-inch sizes, although the 17″ MacBook Pro was not mentioned (previous reports have suggested that it could ship later than other models). Apple has not significantly updated their aluminum unibody MacBook Pro design since 2008.

While Intel has reportedly delayed mass release of their forthcoming Ivy Bridge chips, Apple may have access to those chips prior to other manufacturers, giving them a distinct advantage over manufacturers of other slim “ultrabook” notebooks. Intel has not formally announced a delay in the release of quad-core processors suitable for MacBook Pros, although their lower voltage processors (which would be necessary for the MacBook Air) have been officially delayed.

      I agree! Bought a MacBook Pro 2 weeks ago and I love it. Not caring too much to upgrade.

      1. Honestly, I don’t think this will be a “must-have” upgrade. Just an evolutionary update to the MacBook Pro line for people that would be purchasing a new model anyway.

      I think absolutely the same, the macbook pro could be also a desktop replacement. I would stop buying macbook if there isn´t a dvd drive. BluRay would even be better … Would to come next – an imac without monitor, so you have to waer special glasses to see something???
