Macbook Pro Refresh Coming March 1?

CultofMac is reporting that Danish Apple resellers say March 1 is the release date for the next generation of Macbook Pro laptops. We've already seen reports of constrained supplies of 15- and 17-inch Macbook Pros, so a refresh appears likely and March 1 is as good a date as any.

With the runaway success of the newest generation of Macbook Air laptops, it's an even money bet that Apple will include as standard the item most associated with that success: SSD drives. It'll be a tough choice between the models if they do...the sleek Air with an eleven-inch screen or the larger, but likely faster with a Sandy Bridge CPU and chipset, Pro. Can't wait.
