I know this might be the last thing many people might want to hear, but there is plenty of proof against the supposed speed bump coming in a few weeks. 9to5Mac reports that their quite accurate insider expects 5 new Macs in the coming days/weeks. 9to5Mac links this to supply constraints on Apple. Supply constraints are not because of an imminent spec bump. In fact, it's not even Apple's fault. The sole supplier of aluminum unibodies for Apple, Catcher, had its factories closed down due to environmental concerns. This puts a tremendous strain on Apple's pipeline. Also, 2 major hard drive factories in Thailand are currently submerged due to massive flooding. One of which belongs to Western Digital. Hard drive prices are already rising as the global supply starts to become constrained. Not only that, but the Mac Pros are also due for a refresh. The model numbers that this Mr. X gave 9to5Mac may stand for new Mac Pros, 3 workstations and 2 server models. Finally, if they are going to start using the second wave of Sandy Bridge processors, then they might as well give the Mac Mini a spec bump as well. Mr. X has no mention of this. I'm not saying it's not going to happen; there's some chance that it might. Just don't get your hopes up, because it might turn out to be a big disappointment. Also, I've been seeing many replies and threads about a GPU bump for the MacBook Pro. It's not happening, ever. Current GPUs get the MacBook Pro hot enough already.
