RUMOR: Black Apple iMac, 8-Core Mac Pro, ultra-portable MacBook Pro coming soon?

“Sources told MacScoop there is strong possibility that most or all the Mac line-ups will see a refresh by the end of June and that the company should start making its first 2007 Mac hardware announcements as soon as during March,” Alexandros Roussos reports for MacScoop.

Roussos reports, “The three line-ups that have seen the longest product cycles are Xserves (August 2006), Mac Pros (August 2006) and Mac minis (September 2006). With no word from sources on specific Apple hardware refreshes, we can only speculate that these three line-ups will be prioritized.”

“The only specific information MacScoop has recently obtained from sources regarding Apple’s forthcoming hardware releases is that a black version of the iMac [the black color could be available only on the high-end 24 inch iMac] could make its way with the next update of the company’s all-in-one consumer desktop Macs,” Roussos reports.

“Mac Pros are said to be ready for the 8-Core jump in their next update while the MacBook Pro line-up could be broaden with a smaller form factor,” Roussos reports.

  1. I saw a BlackBook at a coffee shop the other day, and I was struck by just how much it looked like every other black notebook computer on the market. The glossy white is much more iconic and beautiful.

  2. “a black version of the iMac could make its way […] Mac Pros are said to be ready […] the MacBook Pro line-up could be broaden […]”

    Lots of things could happen. Hell, the Cubs could win The World Series.

    The rumor sites are getting weasely. The “Well, we didn’t say it will happen–only that it could happen.” C’mon, you pansies! Dare to take a stand!

    That’s why I don’t pay attention to the rumor sites anymore. You can’t tell the real rumors from the stuff they make up anymore because they use the same wording in both cases.
