Apple Online Store“The evidence for a MacBook Pro refresh happening soon is strong, with multiple independent reports about supply constraints emerging recently,” Mark Gurman reports for 9 to 5 Mac.

  1. Oh man! Imagine if the new refresh MBP has flash memory like the new AIRs. USB 3.0, sandy bridge CPU. 13, 15, 17 inch retina display is too much to ask tho. It would dominate any desktop/laptop sales if manufactured.

    @Jason they said certain MBP models

  2. There is potentially quite a lot to announce in the coming days:

    1. Next OSX update.
    2. Next IOS update.
    3. Data Center uses and timing.
    4. iPad 2.
    5. MBP updates.
    6. MobileMe changes.
    7. ATV 2 software update.

    Maybe, just maybe an event to tie Data Center to software updates, MobileMe changes, new iPad and new notebook hardware.

    There has been a HALT to the HALT of reservations on certain MacBook Pro models due to an error encountered in the Sandy Bridge chip set destined for the refresh of these particular models. Therefore, resume your normal consumptive behaviors while we correct this temporary setback in our presentation to you of the very latest in insane greatness to which you are accustomed.

    Ever rumoredly yours,
