MacBook Pro 2012 release date, design, specs & price rumours

MacBook Pro 2012 release date, design, specs & price rumours taken from around the web. But which piece of gossip will prove to be accurate come WWDC?

 

We all couldn’t help but coo over Apple’s latest MacBook Pro laptop when it was released last year, and we’re hoping the refreshed 2012 model, rumoured to be unveiled at the Californian company’s World Wide Developer’s Conference next week, will have us hooked.

If rumours are to be believed, a lighter, slimmer and high-spec MacBook Pro will be hitting our shelves real soon.

But with Apple keeping tight-lipped about everything, details have been scarce, which is why we’ve turned to the gossip breeding ground that is the World Wide Web to discover what to expect from the upcoming MacBook Pro.

MacBook Pro 2012: Release date

As is the case with all Apple products, rumours surrounding the launch of the refurbished MacBook Pro have been rife – but firm details are nonexistent.

The latest gossip is that we’ll be seeing a brand spanking new version of the MacBook Pro launch at WWDC, set to take place between June 11 and 14.

That’s right Pro fans: you don’t have to wait too long to get your grubby little mitts on Apple’s latest foldable kit.

According to reports last month, Foxconn (that’s the controversial manufacturer that Apple uses to pump out its iThings) is ramping up production of the new MacBook, exacerbating rumours that the laptop will be landing soon. As in July soon. Boy, that’s soon!

In fact, Apple placed such heavy orders that poor overworked Foxconn has been forced to outsource production of the much-mooted device, simply because it doesn’t have enough man power to roll 'em out, IT news portal DigiTimes reports.

The report reads: “As Apple's new MacBooks are expected to launch in the near future, related upstream supply chain players are reportedly facing labour shortages because of strong orders from Apple, while some supply chain makers are even outsourcing their orders to meet shipment schedules, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.”

It adds: "Component manufacturing plants in eastern China have been suffering from labour shortages for a long time, and although May and June are the IT industry's traditional slow season when shortage issues are usually not as significant, the strong orders from Apple's new MacBook are leaving many upstream makers unable to satisfy demand."
