Demand for new MacBooks Pro begins to hinder production of custom models

Rumor: new MacBooks Pro could be launched tomorrow, at the very beginning of Macworld 2010 [atualizado]

Usually a keynote with new product launches was what everyone would expect on a first day at Macworld, right? For even though it starts tomorrow, Apple won't be there. Still, a rumor points to the arrival of new MacBooks Pro this Tuesday morning.

In the absence of an invitation to the press, the rumor could materialize with the novelty being published directly on the company's website (stay tuned on !). At least Macworld participants will have one more topic to discuss this week …

Update (9/2)

It got really hot now:

For now, everything is just a rumor and there are no details about Apple's alleged new laptops.
