Apple has confirmed that it will be announcing new laptops, on the Tuesday 14 October according to a number of US tech and gadget websites.

Sending out the invite, which has yet to be sent to UK publications, Apple simply states:

"The spotlight turns to notebooks"

The invite features a MacBook Pro in shadow.

Rumours started to surface at the beginning of the month that Apple would announce a new range of laptops based on a new manufacturing process described as the "brick" so called because the unit is made from a single sheet of metal.

The event, which will be deemed a "Town hall" event, will be held at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino at 10am Pacific time.

Pocket-lint will be covering the event 6pm in the UK.

We will keep you posted.
