Apple Gazette has received a tip that Apple’s Macbook Pros will be getting a processor upgrade at the end of the month. Our tipster indicated that the 2.33ghz models will be bumped up to 2.66ghz by the end of February.
Late last month, Apple Insider reported that Apple would soon update the displays of the 15 inch Macbook Pro line with new LED technology that would make the screens brighter, and the battery life better. Now, the AI article indicated a second quarter launch for these brighter devices, but it would make little sense to upgrade the processors, then update the screens a few weeks later, so we’re assuming that this time table has been moved forward.
If these two stories prove true, then that would seem to indicate that there may be more validity to Apple Recon’s recent report of a Feb. 20th event than I originally thought.
We’ll keep you posted.
