    New Slimline MacBook Pros Said to be Already in Production


    In direct contrast to a report yesterday that said that MacBook Pros would be phased out by Apple this year in favour of a MacBook Pro/Air combo, AppleInsider reports today on a new story in DigiTimes that says that new 13-and 15-inch MacBook Pro models are currently in production. According to sources in Apple’s supply chain, the new MacBook Pros will not have an optical drive, and will have more advanced specs than the MacBook Air, which would surely mean that Apple intends to keep the MacBook Pro line on the market along with the MacBook Air. Apparently the new Pros will have an improved CPU performance, and larger storage capacity than the MacBook Air. The source said that shipments to Apple of the new laptops would begin this month, with initial monthly shipments to be for between 100,000 and 150,000 units. AppleInsider adds that once production really gets going, monthly shipments are expected to reach around 900,000 units, an increase from the current MacBook Pro production figures. The sources also said that the new MacBook Pro models may well go on sale around the same time as the new Windows Ultrabooks go on sale. Fancy that!
