Back in June, Apple unveiled a refreshed Mac Book Air line up featuring Intel's latest Haswell processors. Thanks to the efficient new technology, the MacBook Airs were able to run for up to 12 hours on a single charge. Since then, we've been waiting for Apple to introduce a new line of MacBook Pros powered by the same Haswell processors. According to a report by Hong Kong-based supply chain monitor EMSOne, the wait is almost over.
The report claims that Taiwanese manufacturers have begun to ship components for new MacBook Pros based on Intel's Fourth generation Haswell processors to assembly plants. So yes, mass production has already begun. The report also goes on to add that these new range of MacBook Pros might just be launched on the event scheduled for September 10th, the day Apple is expected to unveil its new line of iPhones.
There's a lot of speculation on what to expect from the next generation of MacBook Pros. For instance, look at the latest generation of MacBook Air devices. Apple didn't touch the design, they simply replaced their older Ivy Bridge processors with the new Haswell processors for some extraordinary results in battery life. At Gizbot, we're wondering if Apple will go ahead and redesign the MacBook Pro and try to make it thinner and lighter? Or will they simply give us the old design with some new processors thrown in?
So here's the big question, is the company planing to move away from a MacBook Pro design that it's maintained since the device's debut? Or will the company follow its new "Don't fix it if it's not broken" policy that came in with Tim Cook.
