Apple to launch new MacBooks this week?

New MacBook Pro models rumoured to come with larger trackpads, and an SSD which will house Mac OS X

Apple is set to launch a brand new line of MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks, and according to various reports the new models will be available this week.

MacRumors.com claims that early part numbers for the new machines were leaked, and that the MacBooks could launch as early as this Thursday.

AppleInsider has also reported that resellers will receive sealed packages with the new MacBook models, but are prohibited from opening the packages until they receive further instructions.

Adding weight to the claims is the Apple Store's shipment estimates for current MacBook Pro models, which have increased from the regular 24 hours to 3-5 business days.

BGR reports the new MacBook Pro models are rumoured to come with larger trackpads and an SSD which will house Mac OS X (with everything else remaining on a regular hard disk drive), and they will weigh less than current models.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
