laptops are on the cards.
New SKU product codes
Reports yesterday suggest that Best Buy off-shoot Future Shop has been given new SKU product codes by Apple. The MB402LL/A and MB403LL/A are priced at $1,149 (£590) and $1,349 (£690) Canadian dollars respectively. This suggests the new models will be MacBooks rather than MacBook Pros.
Apple has released a flurry of new hardware and software in the last few weeks, fulfilling a promise made by CEO Steve Jobs that new kit would appear throughout 2008.
So far this year Apple has launched the MacBook Air, Apple TV take 2 and the TimeCapsule backup drive. It has also beefed up the storage capacity of both the iPhone and iPod touch, issued software updates for both, and released a pink iPod nano. It's also been busy on the software front, with a major overhaul of Aperture - its pro digital photo program.
Still to come, and expected imminently, is a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the iPhone, which will finally open it up to Apple-approved third-party apps.
More news as soon as we have it.
