Apple to launch new MacBooks this week?

New MacBook Pro models rumoured to come with larger trackpads, and an SSD which will house Mac OS X

Apple is set to launch a brand new line of MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks, and according to various reports the new models will be available this week.

MacRumors.com claims that early part numbers for the new machines were leaked, and that the MacBooks could launch as early as this Thursday.

AppleInsider has also reported that resellers will receive sealed packages with the new MacBook models, but are prohibited from opening the packages until they receive further instructions.

Adding weight to the claims is the Apple Store's shipment estimates for current MacBook Pro models, which have increased from the regular 24 hours to 3-5 business days.

BGR reports the new MacBook Pro models are rumoured to come with larger trackpads and an SSD which will house Mac OS X (with everything else remaining on a regular hard disk drive), and they will weigh less than current models.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
