    "Apple will refresh its Mac Pro and Mac Mini desktop computers in
    August, with the new range featuring Intel¹s new Sandy Bridge CPUs and
    Thunderbolt, the company¹s latest high-speed peripheral interface
    developed in collaboration with Intel.

    The unofficial news of these Mac desktop arrivals come from the Twitter
    account of CNet¹s Brian Tong whose previous predictions on Apple product
    launches have turned out to be accurate.

    His initial posting reported that the new models would launch at the end
    of July/ first week in August, with a later post emphasing August as the
    launch date and that Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt would appear on both.
    No other specs were known.

    The timing of these news models would certainly tie in nicely with the
    launch of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion but also implies that the July release of
    Apple¹s revamped operating system will happen in later in that month.

    Both the Mac Pro and the Mac mini are around a year old now, and given
    Apple¹s past form a refresh seems timely. Other reports recently have
    suggested that the MacBook Air will also be fitted out with the Sandy
    Bridge/Thunderbolt combo and that all new products launches are on hold
    until after the Mac OS X Lion launch. The MacBook Pro and iMac ranges
    have already seen this hardware upgrade and you can read our review of
    the 27in model here."
