New (rumoured) Intel processor for MacBook Pro and Dell notebooks promises more rivalry between the formats!

MacBook_Pro-dell%282%29.jpgProcessor nutters, rear your pasty white little faces and check out this nugget of truth rumour. Apple and Dell (who Microsoft smooches with most of all), are apparently releasing laptops containing Intel’s glorious new 45-nanonmetre Penryn processor – at the same time!

Someone needs to synch up their Google Calenders, tsk.

This isn’t rumoured to be in the ‘foreseeable future’ either, as according to reports, it could be as early as next week. Apple’s MacBook Pro range has been tipped as the possible product upgrade, with improved battery life, a better performance and lower operating temperatures all an added bonus with the processors. Not only this, but rumour mill frequenters are also speculating that the new MacBooks will contain the MacBook Air multi-touch trackpad, and will cost the exact same price as current models.

All of this seems to stem from some leaked information in the US chain Best Buy’s inventory tracking system, which points at the sell-date of February 10th.

  • As soon as Apple released air I knew their other notebooks would get a boost. I cancelled 2 MacBook Pro orders and am waiting for the new version release. I was told to expect the new models within about 3 weeks maybe even sooner.
