The Apple Store may still be down, but the details on the new MacBook Pro range has seemingly already emerged. 9 to 5 Mac's tipster has sent them the model numbers and specs of five new MacBook Pro SKUs, including two 13-inchers, two 15.4-inch versions and a single 17-inch. The biggest apparently packs Intel's quad-core 2.2GHz Core i7 processor, along with 4GB of RAM, a 750GB hard-drive and AMD Radeon HD 6750 1GB GPU.

As for the 13.3-inch MBPs, two versions are tipped with 2.3GHz and 2.7GHz processors, 4GB of DDR3 RAM as standard, and 320GB or 500GB of storage. The 15.4-inch machines have either 2.2GHz or 2.7GHz dual-core CPUs, 4GB of DDR3 memory and either 500GB or 750GB of storage, along with AMD Radeon HD 6750 1GB graphics.

There's also Thunderbolt connectors - using Light Peak technology for up to 10GBs data transfers - and, on the 15- and 17-inch machines, the option of a matte display. All pre-config SKUs are expected to ship within 24hrs, which means you should probably get your credit card ready.
