Yesterday’s part numbers are now being reported as inventory numbers for new MacBook’s and Mac Mini’s. The refresh comes on the eve of what could be the release of OS X Lion, Apple’s next-generation operating system.
The Mini is poised to come as a basic model, a slightly more customizable model, and a Mini Server. All of which we’ve seen in previous Mac Mini models. Which chips will power the new models still remains a mystery.
Apple is likely to soon announce a refresh to their Macbook and Mac Mini range. Originally it was thought that leaked part numbers outed an impending Macbook Air and Mac Pro refresh, however, a source close to 9to5 has come forward and claimed the part numbers are for a Macbook and Mac Mini refresh.
It is likely that a Macbook refresh will see Thunderbolt support and faster processors.
You have to wonder why Apple persist with the white Macbook at this stage. I personally fully expected the Macbook not to have another run out and instead be laid to rest. Apple already offer a Macbook, the 11″ Air, at a price under $1,000 and the entry-level white Macbook doesn’t fit the current aluminum range of Macbooks, so why persist? Seems a strange decision to me.
