A store in Paraguay has started advertising Apple’s MacBook Pro mini-LED using a concept someone created on Twitter.
The frankly hilarious episode was highlighted by Ian Zelbo, also known as RendersbyIan. Zelbo is known for his work in the Apple community, often teaming up with Jon Prosser to give us unique insight into upcoming devices like the iPhone 14 and a rumored new MacBook Air.
Shopping China Importados, an outlet in Paraguay, has a display panel showcasing the “MacBook Pro 2021”, which it claims is “supercharged by the Apple M1X chip.” One commentator noted that the store was well known in the country and this was not the first time this has happened.
Obviously, the store does not have such a device on its site because it does not exist … yet. Several rumors indicate that Apple will launch an exciting new MacBook Pro later this year. It is expected to feature a redesigned chassis, the return of some ports like HDMI and the SD card slot, and a new mini-LED display like the one that debuted in the iPad Pro M1 (2021) earlier this year.
According to reports, a new Apple Silicon (M1X) is on the way and could significantly improve performance. From a massive leak at the start of the year:
A new report claims that Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro will feature an Apple 10-core silicon chip and support up to 64GB of RAM.
… Apple is planning two different chips, named Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die: both include eight high-performance cores and two power-efficient cores for a total of 10, but will come in 16 or 32 base graphics variants. . The chips also include up to 64 gigabytes of memory compared to a maximum of 16 on the M1. They will have an improved neural engine, which handles machine learning tasks and allow the addition of more Thunderbolt ports, which allow users to sync data and connect to external devices, than the two on the MacBook Pro. Current M1.
Apple’s next best MacBook will likely make its debut before the end of the year, but it’s certainly not on sale in Paraguay already. We promise.
