New MacBook Pro laptops from Apple coming soon?

Ian Paul | Feb. 21, 2011
If you were planning on heading to the Apple Store to go shopping for a new MacBook Pro, you might want to hold off on until at least Thursday. Apple is expected to announce a MacBook Pro refresh this week featuring machines that are thinner, lighter, have zippy new Intel processors and better screens, according to the latest rumors. The favored date for the new MacBook Pro line-up is Thursday, February 24, according to MacRumors.

In August, Apple bought up the exclusive rights to use Liquidmetal in electronic products. The alloy has been around since 2003 and used before in a variety of consumer products including SanDisk Cruzer USB thumb drives. It's not clear if the rumored Liquidmetal fuel cells would make it into Apple devices any time soon.

Predicting when Apple is going to announce new products is always a bit of a guessing game -- earlier reports said new MacBook Pros wouldn't be coming until March at the earliest. Regardless, if you're thinking about getting a new Mac computer this week, you should probably hold off until at least Friday.
