Apple users are a loyal bunch. They stick together and have likely started with an Apple computer as their first computer. Even though the company has not released a new computer line for a while now or even issue regular updates to existing ones, MacBook Pro users continue to use their Apple computer as they wait for the next big thing that Apple has to offer.
There is a buzz in the tech world about a possible MacBook Pro release early this year but since it is almost the end of the first quarter, people are geared up for a possible release in April.
