Apple hasn't officially announced the release date for its new revamped Macbook Pro and iMac family, but the latest rumors suggest a redesigned 15-inch MacBook will launch as early as May, with the new revamped iMac following in June.
A report obtained by How to Arena says that a reliable source from Apple's supply chain in China claims that the new 15-inch Macbook Pro will be ready for release in the next three weeks.
Previous rumors, which came from The Economic Daily Times of China said the new MacBook pro is under production at Foxconn and Quanta Computer and will be shipped in June.
The most popular rumors surrounding the MacBook Pro is that both the 13 and 15- inch models will be re-designed to look a lot like the ultra -thin MacBook Air. The new model is expected to be thinner than the current MacBook Pro, but slightly thicker than the ultr-thin MacBook air, according to a source in Apple's supply chain.
Rumors suggest the 15- inch MacBook Pro will be the first to get a revamp with Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 Ivy Bridge chipset, which is expected to become available later this month. Current 15- inch MacBook run on Core i7 processors.
The new MacBook is also rumored to come with an anti-glare retina display. Following the release of the new iPad, which came with a revolutionary 2048 x 1536, 3.1 million-pixel display, Apple Enthusiasts expect the company to use the same technology in their new laptops.
An anti-glare display will mean that the MacBook can be used under more lighting condition with the distractive highly reflective-glare of the screen.
The 13 inch MacBook Pro will most likely get a refreshment in June, following by the 17 inch MacBook Pro later this year.
The iMac desktop is also expected to get a revamp in June. Rumors suggest the computer will get an upgraded processor, anti-glare screen and even a slightly thinner case.
