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

Mac Rumours 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 1 March.

Last week, Macworld reported that supplies of MacBook Pros were running low in Japan, following on from January's news that US 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 1 March launch are correct then it seems that any delays were minor.

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 Rumours speculates that they could come with solid-state drives rather than traditional hard drives.
