Is Apple getting ready to update its MacBook Pro models?

Retailers’ stock of Apple’s MacBook Pros are running low, citing decreased numbers of the 15-inch and 17-inch models in store, reports MacRumors.

“At least one major retail chain has reportedly notified its branches that it has been unable to fulfill replenishment orders,” writes Eric Slivka for MacRumors.

While the report doesn’t confirm a revision of the MacBook Pro line, it does fit a pattern in Apple history that precedes product updates. Apple’s management of its supply chain is a high-powered machine, so the fact that retailers are unable to secure more product indicates something is in the works. There have been predictions that model updates will take place in the first half of this year, leading many to believe that this could be more than just a rumour.

CNET guesses that Apple’s new MacBook Pro line is likely to use Intel’s Sandy Bridge processor. With this new generation of CPUs we can expect an increase in content creation and gaming speed as well as improvements in the size and weight of the new MacBook Pro models.

    With the recalling of sandy bridge processors there could be a real problem of stock availability for quite a while if the next MacBook is sandy bridge based.
