As far as rumors go, this is pretty cool.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities released a new investors note today, stating that the current MacBook Pro lineup for 2017 will offer Intel’s latest Kaby Lake chipset along a new 32GB RAM option for the 15-inch model.
Intel just announced its 7th generation Kaby Lake processors at CES and Kuo predicts that the first model that will see the upgraded chip will be the 12-inch MacBook. Mass production of that new machine will begin in Q2 of this year, according to Kuo, while a 16GB memory option will also be added to the device.
It’s also been stated that the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro notebooks with Kaby Lake processors will enter production in Q3 of 2017.
