Apple C2D MacBook Pros?

Sources within the Apple reseller network have indicated that a long-awaited update to the MacBook Pro line is imminent, according to AppleInsider. Stores that have tried to request custom configurations of the laptop are being told that they will not receive their systems for another two to three weeks, according to the report. In the past, these shipping delays have frequently been signs of updates: the denial of bulk Mac mini orders in late August previewed the eventual release of the new dual-core models in early September. AppleInsider in turn claims that the new models are likely to remain similar to current models with the exception of the faster processor.

Despite its aggressive performance updates to the professional laptops in the first half of 2006, Apple has taken a more cautious approach to the Core 2 Duo processor, allowing system builders such as Dell and Lenovo to capture early attention with updated portables instead of launching simultaneously with the new chip.
