New rumor says that Apple is about to update the MacBook Pro with faster Intel Core i-Series CPUs.
Apple has updated the MacBook Pro in February. According to AppleInsider the MacBook Pro line is already getting updated with new Intel Core i-Series CPUs on or after September 20 (Marks end of Apple Back to School). Intel has unveiled this month several new Core i7 CPUs with faster clock speeds that Apple can use in the MacBook Pro. The update is necessary as Intel has delayed the Ivy Bridge platform release into 2012. The late-2011 MacBook Pro laptops need to hold until Ivy Bridge is ready.
The MacBook Pro is now the only Apple laptop with integrated optical drive after Apple killed the MacBook. It is also the only choice from Apple if you want a screen that is at least 15-inch in size.
The MacBook Pro starts at $1,199 and a fully tricked out model can quickly cost you over $3,000.
