Even though the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 fervor has not yet died down, Apple may announce more products this month. 9to5Mac reports that the MacBook Pro refresh that usually happens around this time of year is coming soon. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the skinny Air-esque models rumored earlier this year will come before the end of 2011.
9to5Mac points out that current MacBook Pro stock is “heavily constrained” and their source assures them that new model numbers are in Apple’s inventory system. The numbers indicate minor refreshes — so likely nothing new on the outside, but the latest Intel processors on the inside. Probably Bluetooth 4.0 as well.
But what about the skinny Air-like MacBook Pros we heard about earlier this year, you may ask. MacRumors speculates that those won’t arrive until Intel’s IvyBridge processors are ready. That was supposed to happen this year, but Intel is apparently a little behind.
So if you were about to buy a new MacBook, hold off for now. You may be able to get a more powerful model soon or the current models will cost a bit less.
