TheStreet’s Troy Wolvetron claims that Apple has filed a trademark for the brands “Mac Pro” and “MacPro”. The trademark was actually filed in the New Zealand’s Patents and Trademarks Office :
MacPro, or Mac Pro, which the company filed to protect in New Zealand last November. According to the filing, the phrase is meant to cover a series of devices related to computers.
This name could be used for the Intel-based high-end Macs that are expected to be released by the end of the year or early next year, replacing the current PowerMac line based on dual-core PowerPC G5 processors.
