A list of new Apple part numbers has leaked onto Web and appears to be more evidence of updated Apple computers that could arrive as soon as next week.

In total, there seems to be 27 new parts on the list with 14 of them looking like new Mac hardware. The remaining 13 are labeled as standalone kits, according to Apple Insider.

Of the new Mac hardware, there are three items listed that appear to be the three variations of the updated Mac Pro we wrote about Wednesday. Nine to 5 Mac reports the items as an Entry Mac Pro, a Server Mac Pro and a Higher End Mac Pro.

On the list are also items for the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and the iMac -- further proof that Apple will be overhauling four out of its five Mac lines.

In the list above, courtesy of 9 to 5 Mac, you can see what the price will be (in Australian dollars) for the updated computers, assuming, of course, that this list is accurate and that Apple doesn't make any last-minute changes.

As for the standalone kits, 9 to 5 Mac reports that those parts are probably iPod shuffles. If the shuffles too are overhauled, that would just add to a growing and very large list of products Apple may be revamping or reloading at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference next week.

Apple Insider reports that the person who provided the site with the picture said the new parts appear to be heading to Australia for a launch next week. That could also mean the parts will be arriving to the rest of the world as well.

Most years Apple uses its annual event in San Francisco to launch a big new product, and an overhaul of most of its Mac computers would definitely fit the bill.
