Apple is rumored to be upgrading its notebook line in April, what could be a few months before the release of its next OS.
Citing supplier sources, Taiwanese component news site DigiTimes – which has a not-so-great track record of Apple murmurings – says updated MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models will hit store shelves in April.
The new Macbook Pro is rumored to be much thinner than current models but not as thin as the Macbook Air and for the first time it will probably come without an optical drive. With cloud services, including iCloud, and most digital media being streamed at this point, Apple thinks that an optical drive is becoming unnecessary and their experience with the MacBook Air probably underlines that theory. The new thinner MacBook Pros will come in both 13 inch and 15 inch sizes, with more power than the current MacBook Air line-up.. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we hear more rumors.
