New MacBook Pros With Faster Sandy Bridge Processors to Launch Next Week [Rumor]

Thanks to a leak through Apple’s own website, we’re all expecting a refresh to its MacBook Pro family to introduce faster Sandy Bridge processors. According to the latest rumor, they’ll be ready to purchase from next week.

Based on leaked part numbers, the new machines will look identical to the current lineup — so don’t get your hopes up for a fancy redesign. They will, however, boast faster processors, and most likely Bluetooth 4.0, which was introduced to Apple’s MacBook Pro earlier this year, and its new iPhone 4S.

According to a 9to5Mac report, the updated notebooks will be available between Tuesday and Thursday of next week:

With supplies only becoming more constrained, and with shipments already touching down in select countries, we think a launch next week is likely (between Tuesday and Thursday). That is, of course, if there are no unforeseen circumstances.

MacRumors notes that the new processors are likely to be Intel’s latest quad-core i7 processors with speeds of 2.4GHz, 2.5GHz, and 2.7GHz; as well as dual-core i7 chips at 2.8GHz — as shown below.
