Spanish site found an interesting little Intel promotion which seems to indicate that Apple is on the cusp of releasing some new Core i5 MacBooks.  The advert says that two lucky winners will recieve MacBook Pros with the new Core i5 processors.  We think Apple might be giving Intel Spain a call fairly soon.  Intel demoed the performance gains between Core 2 Duo and Core i5 laptops in this video at CES.

As for us?  We’re recommending that you hold off on MacBook Pro purchasing for a few weeks – pehaps until, oh say around January 27th.  As Macrumors points out, the adverts have gone out globally.
