MacBook Pro and iMac updates incoming?

New models pegged for start of 2011

Hardware changes for top-end machines planned by Apple.

Apple is working on new models of the iMac and MacBook Pro, which will be unveiled at the start of next year. That’s according to sources speaking to Digitimes, which have offered some juicy morsels about what we can expect.

While the design is expected to remain the same, word is the iMac will come in a new screen size, with a lower price tag. Currently, the iMac is available in 27-inch and 21.5-inch versions, with the cheapest model clocking in at £999.

In addition, there’ll be four new versions of the MacBook Pro, with internal hardware boosts expected. The top-end laptop line was last given a refresh last April, so expect speedier CPUs and more capacious hard drives, but not much else.
