Right now would not be the best time to buy a new MacBook Pro from Apple.
Why? Because it most certainly looks like a new version is on the way.
Apple has been rumored for quite a while to be trimming down its 15-inch MacBook Pro, and a few new details give us an idea about what the new laptop might look like. 9to5Mac has heard from its own sources in Apple’s supply chain that the new laptop will have a “jaw-dropping” Retina Display, USB 3.0, and a thinner build. Think some place in between the current MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
“Instead, the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is described as being an ultra-thin version of the current MacBook Pro. Basically, the prototype design is a thinner, yet more robust, version of the late-2008 design,” 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman reports. Gurman says the laptop will be thinner because it will no longer have a CD / DVD drive. It will keep the unibody aluminum case that the current MacBook Pros and the MacBook Air have.
