    My understanding is the new quad-core MacBook Pro MAY be released in April.
    Is there still a possibility of a dual-core MacBook Pro release sometime this Summer?

    The 13" MBP will be probably using a dual core CPU. Why?

    The 15 and 17 inch are already quad-core, and have been for over a year.

    The 13" may or may not get a quad-core in the next iteration, only Apple knows.

    A friend wants to buy one asap. But he wants a 15 inch MBP.

    I guess I'm a little behind the times.
    Thank you.

    And that friend only wants or needs a dual core MBP? If so, either look for used models using the C2D or i5/i7 CPU, or look at the refurbished Mac section of the Apple Online Store.

    I'm sure he'll get the new quad-core MBP.
    I just thought that if there were a duo-core 15 inch MBP coming out a little later, he might go for that.

    As quad core CPUs are faster than dual core CPUs, Apple will not use dual core CPUs for their 15" MBPs anymore.
