You'll have to take this with the usual Apple-sized grain of salt, but Mac Rumors is now reporting that we could be seeing some updated MacBook Pros as soon as Tuesday, June 5th, not at WWDC as previously rumored. That bit of information comes from a French reseller, who says that he's already ordered the new laptops but wasn't told exactly what the updates would be -- although the betting still seems to be on LED backlighting and a Santa Rosa upgrade. Lending a tad more credence to this latest rumor is the fact that a June 5th launch would coincide with the start of Apple's Back to School program, whereas a WWDC launch would cause a spec change a week into the promotion. Either way, it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer to put this round of rumors to rest.
