Apple online store closes ahead of MacBook Pro refresh

Apple prep online store ahead of new MacBook Pro unveiling

Apple has closed the virtual doors to its online store hinting towards the imminent official unveiling of the newly updated range of MacBook Pro computers.

Touting the now familiar yellow Post-It note and declaration “We’ll be back soon. We are busy updating the store for you and will be back shortly,” the Apple online store has been taken down globally suggesting the arrival of a new product.

A telltale sign of a new product arrival, the downing of the Apple online store all but confirms the recent spate of rumours that suggested today, coincidentally Apple CEO Steve Job’s birthday, would see the arrival of the latest MacBook Pro updates.

Earlier today and pre-empting the expected official announcement, full specs for the claimed MacBook Pro updates were leaked online with the 13-inch model reported to be on the receiving end of a hefty overhaul. Packing Intel’s Light Peak, Thunderbolt technology the new Mac model will also tout 4GB of RAM, a 320GB HDD, Intel HD graphics and a Core i5 processor.

A HD FaceTime compatible camera, 13.3-inch 1200 x 800p display, two USB ports, a Firewire connector and SDXC slot complete the device’s list of features.

Will the newly revamped range of MacBook Pros be a sufficient step ahead of previous models or a minor improvement? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
