Those Were Mac Mini and White MacBook Part Numbers, Not Mac Pros

macbookmini
It seems that some the part numbers leaked earlier this week are not for the new Mac Pros, but instead for new Mac minis and White MacBooks. At least, according to 9to5Mac who originally reported the part numbers, and who has now issued a correction.

The revised part descriptions and groupings are as follows:

MC914LL/A – J59, BEST – USA - White MacBook
MC936LL/A – J40, ULTIMATE – USA – Mac mini Server
MC815LL/A – J40I, BETTER – USA – Mac mini standard configuration
MC816LL/A – J40, BEST – USA Faster Mac mini

The original report had pegged these as "Mac Pro" part numbers instead. Meanwhile, the associated MacBook Air part numbers in the original report are said to still be considered accurate and are believed to be launching imminently.

Both the Mac mini and white MacBook are overdue for updates as tracked by our Buyer's Guide. There had been few rumors about their release, though they'll certainly adopt the latest Intel processors as well as Thunderbolt interfaces.

Meanwhile, the last credible rumor for the next Mac Pro release had it pegged in early August which is only a few weeks away.

Thanks for the info.

@Arnold: No offense mate, but this isn't twitter. You could have made the title a bit more professional.

I played around with a few titles, but this got across the message the best. :)

The white MacBook really needs a $100 price cut.

I agree with Hellhammer about the Mac Pros .... but am I the only one shocked that Apple is still hanging on to the white macbook? Considering they can just nix it with the Airs ... Unless they give the white macbooks the specs of the Air (ie: Higher resolution screen ) I wouldn't get to excited.

I think they are still popular and affordable for educational customers. Apple held on to the eMac for education for a long time too.

Why would Apple do that? Apple's goal is not stealing market share from others. Apple's goal is to make the best hardware and software that you can buy and to make lots of profit on the way. Selling the MacBook for £599 or £499 doesn't help one bit with that goal.

They don't do that either, they just make the most expensive because their casing is well designed, and they have the market cornered on OS X. They take the same hardware from a $999-1,200 PC, make it look pretty and charge $2,200.

Anyone that honestly think that Apple sells superior hardware is either just ignorant to the current state of hardware, or just trying to give themselves another reason other than "I wanted OS X" or "I think it's pretty" because that's really the only two reasons to but Apple. Apple make average hardware look stylish.
