Apple today sent out invitations to an Oct. 27 event that will likely include the launch of new MacBooks.

"Hello again," reads the invite. The event—billed as a special event, as all Apple pressers are—kicks off at 10 a.m. PT and will be held at Apple's Cupertino campus.

Rumors about an Oct. 27 launch have been making the rounds, particularly after Apple recently changed the dateof its fourth quarter earnings call from Oct. 27 to Oct. 25 because Oct. 27 had turned into a "scheduling conflict."

As for what we'll see, Apple will probably reveal long-awaited updates to its MacBook Pro. Recent rumors indicatethe upcoming laptop will ditch standard USB ports in favor of USB-C, among other things.

The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have gone a relatively long time without major updates, prompting some Mac fans to question whether Apple is planning to abandon its notebook line. In September, a concerned user reached out to CEO Tim Cook via email to ask if the Cupertino tech giant is "pulling away from the Mac line." Surprisingly, Cook responded, assuaging those concerns.

"I love the Mac and we are very committed to it. Stay tuned," he wrote in the message, which was obtained by MacRumors.

PCMag will be there, so stay tuned for all the details. It will be a busy week, as Microsoft is hosting a Surface-related event the day before in New York.
