Reports suggest Apple readying five new MacBook Pros for launch next week

Apple could be set to unveil five new MacBook Pros and a range of AirPort Express refreshes as early as next week.

The Apple Store is down as of this writing, which is often a sign that something is going on behind the scenes, leading to speculation that new products may be forthcoming.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The new MacBook Pro range will likely include a 17-inch model (MD311LL/A), two 15-inchers (MD318LL/A and MD322LL/A) and two of the 13-inch variety (MD313LL/A and MD314LL/A) that will retail at the same price points as the models in the current lineup, according to 9to5Mac.

In addition to the MacBook Pros, it seems that Apple is gearing up to release new AirPort Express refreshes as well. We have seen no fewer than eight new model numbers for AirPort devices surface in Apple’s database and aren’t quite sure what to make of them yet.

On Monday we reported that leaks suggested new MacBook Pros would be shipping in November. A launch on the coming Tuesday could definitely see the new machines shipping to customers in November, but we’ll just have to wait to find out.
