Future Shop slips new Macs

Some placeholder SKUs in Canadian retailer Future Shop's computer system could be a clue to impending Mac revisions, according to a screenshot supplied by an anonymous employee to MacRumors. A total of twelve spots entitled "APPLE MAC PLACEHOLDER" exist in the system, six each for English and French, all numbered accordingly. Futureshop and Best Buy have typically been privy to past Apple releases, most likely due to the close nature of their relationship.

AppleInsider predicts, based on a previous roadmap laid out by the news site, that Apple will unveil three new models of MacBook and MacBook Pro, accounting for the six reserved slots.

    We've got confirmation that, at some time in the future, Apple will be updating its hardware! Whew! What a relief.

    Man, this is news, because for a while there, we all just figured Apple had plateaued out and was planning on sticking with its current line-up for the next year or two.
