9to5mac.com is claiming that launches of an upgraded white MacBook and new Mac mini line are imminent, but we’ll still have to wait to see a new line of Mac Pro models.
The site’s source, a Mr. X, has revealed new information that Apple is about to launch a new white MacBook ‘likely with Thunderbolt ports and faster processors’
In addition claims the site, Apple is about to launch a new Mac mini line with both a standard model and a server model. “It appears that there is a third model as well – probably with a faster processor – but this model is most likely a built-to-order option through the Apple online store.”
A Mac Mini with Thunderbolt ports would be particularly desirable in postproduction and other professional video markets, as would of course a similarly equipped Mac Pro. However it would also make sense for a new Mac Mini to ship with Mac OS X Lion preinstalled, given that the release of 10.7 is imminent.
“We are still expecting new Mac Pros later this month or early next month,” states 9to5mac.com, in reference to an earlier story.
