Report: Apple Stands By For “Significant Product Launch” Next Week



Throwing some more fuel on the fire of an imminent Sandy Bridge refresh of the MacBook Pro line, Apple Insider is confirming that their sources have told them that new models are coming this week.

People familiar with the matter say the Cupertino-based company late this week began briefing several of its operating segments to be on stand-by for a significant product launch that could come as early as next week. Those same people were not yet made privy to the specifics of the launch, however, which had earlier been anticipated for the following week.

Buckle up. We’re looking at a new Apple product launch, and if the rumors are to be believed, that will not only see MacBook Pros getting a whole lot faster, but they might have modular hard/optical drive bays, ubiquitous SSDs and be built out of futuristic LiquidMetal as well.
