According to a new post from[Translated], Intel has sent an email to members of its Intel Retail Edge program with the chance to win a new MacBook Pro.  The interesting thing about the contest is that it details some specifications we have not yet seen as part of the MacBook lineup.  The contest shows a Core i5 based MacBook Pro.   Looking at the timeframe of when Apple updates their MacBooks, late January is very probable for a new Core i5 based lineup to be made available.  The new chipsets from Intel are showing some significant gains when compared to the Core 2 Duo chips we have had for a few years.  

If you are planning to buy a MacBook Pro, it may be worth your while to wait just a couple of more weeks.
