After refreshing its MacBook Pro lineup earlier this month, Apple appears to be readying the launch of new "portable" computers, according to registration of new Mac models in the Eurasian Economic Commission uncovered by MacRumors. Registration in the Eurasian Economic Commission generally precede the release of new Apple products.
According to the new listings, Apple on Thursday registered seven unreleased Mac models including A2141, A2147, A2158, A2159, A2179, A2182, and A2251.
As they are described as "portable" computers, the new models appear to be notebooks, added the report.
This was the first time the iPhone-maker added eight cores to MacBook Pro models to allow the devices to perform twice as fast as a quad-core MacBook Pro and 40 percent better than a 6-core MacBook Pro.
