Is this the new MacBook Pro?

Blurry it may be, but Engadget's MacBook Pro shot looks authentic.

Yesterday it was photos of the new MacBook cases that leaked out - now there's a shot of what appears to be a fully-assembled MacBook Pro on the loose.

The pic was first posted by Engadget, and it looks to be authentic. Its design tallies up with the aforementioned case shots, and the photo also seems to confirm the previous rumours that at least one of the new MacBooks will have a multi-touch glass trackpad.

It's being reported that this trackpad also serves as the mouse button - the absence of any standalone buttons would suggest that this is indeed the case. is predicting that prices of the new MacBook Pros will range from $1999 to $2799, with the standard MacBooks costing $1299 and $1599. There had been suggestions that an $899 MacBook could be in the pipeline, but the consensus now is that this isn't the case.

Apple is set to confirm the new MacBooks at a press conference later today.
