Revamped MacBook Pro Expected in March

The anticipated update of the MacBook Pro product line could happen on March 1, according to reports.

Mac Rumors reports that Danish blogger Kenneth Lund had heard from retailers in the country that a limited supply of the new MacBook Pros will be available from March 1.

Last week, Macworld reported that supplies of MacBook Pros were running low in Japan, following on from January's news that U.S. stores were also facing dwindling stocks of the devices.

It was anticipated that problems with Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors could delay the MacBook Pro product line refresh, though if the reports about a March launch are correct then it seems that any delays were minor.

The MacBook family was last updated about a year ago, in April 2010. The MacBook firmware was refreshed in November.

Other than the inclusion of Sandy Bridge processors, there is little information -- confirmed or otherwise -- about the possible features of the new MacBook Pros, though Mac Rumors speculates that they could come with solid-state drives rather than traditional hard drives.
