The new 2011 MacBook Pro is set to go on sale on Thursday, Feb. 24th. AppleInsider reports that they can confirm that the new Apple MacBook Pro line-up will be released on Steve Jobs' 56th Birthday, which happens to be this Thursday.

Usually Apple releases new products on Tuesday, but since yesterday was Presidents' Day and the proximity of the brithday of Steve Jobs, it makes sense to choose Thursday.

As reported the current MacBook Pro has now a delayed shipping time frame of 3-5 days in the Apple store. Rumors say that Apple will release five new MacBook Pro laptops.

The new MacBook Pro are based on the new Intel Sandy Bridge platform and possibly are dramatically thinner. Yesterday BGR reported that the new MacBook Pros have a small SSD for the Operating System by default. This would be the same setup you get with the iMac. I have an iMac Core i7 with an SSD as primary drive and large HDD for data. How a default SSD will affect the MacBook Pro pricing remains to be seen.
