The redesign of the MacBook Air has apparently been very pleasing to consumers. Apple is reportedly shipping 500,000 units per month. It’s easy to understand why this model is popular. It’s popularity has drawn attention of both Intel and PC manufacturers, to begin making their own Ultrabooks to compete with Apple’s MacBook Air. But reports seem to indicate that these manufacturers, who are mainly Asus, Toshiba, Acer and Lenovo, are just testing their models, only shipping a reported combined number of 50,000 Ultrabooks in their initial shipment.

The new MacBook Pros are only a few hours away from being available to the world. The Apple Store is down, and Apple will shortly unveil the new laptops. A new photo leaked reveals the specifications of the upcoming new 17 inch MacBook Pro model.
The latest rumor about the MacWorld floating around is that an Intel i7 powered MacBook Pro is gonna make its way. GeekBench results for a “new” Core i7 MacBook Pro. According to the results, what you’re looking at above are the numbers for the MacBook Pro 6,1, sporting a nastified Intel Core i7 (dual core, not quad) 620M (Arrandale) percolating along at 2.66GHz. Other curious points here are the 4.8GHz FSB, which sounds a little screwy to us, and a final GeekBench score of 5260, which makes current MBPs clocked at the same speed look like your grandfather with a walker (those ranges hover around 3700-4000 on average). The laptop in question is also allegedly running a fresh version of Snow Leopard (build 10C3067 of 10.6.2), which certainly makes sense if someone is out there benching a new Apple product, though it’s not a number we can verify. Still, if you were using a new Apple product, would you be dumb enough to publicly share this info? Probably not, which of course raises the question that this might just be a hackintosh or some other clever spoof (even if we did see a suggestion of new MBPs on the way recently). Till then, you could dream about it and we will provide you further updates.
