A lot of rumors have been building up concerning the new Macbook Pro 2012 edition. What we today call the Macbook Pro might become the new generation Macbook Air.
With the mobile Ivy bridge processors coming soon, and the large query of ultra thin laptops. Why would Apple not do something extra ordinary? They’ve done it several times before, so why not now?
The MacBook Pro will no longer have an optical drive enabling thinner designs, the sources indicated. Despite the slim profile, the new devices will feature more advanced specs than the MacBook Air in terms of CPU performance and storage capacity, the sources said.
According to digitimes, the new series of Macbook Pro 13″ and 15″ will not include a optical drive which allows a thinner design. But we’re not talking a Macbook Air, this new Macbook will have more advanced CPU’s and storage capacity.
I am 99% sure that the new series of Macbook Pro will include a mobile Intel ivy bridge CPU, and maybe they will finally replace the HDD with a SSD as standard storage.
As such, AppleInsider believes that based on its information, leaks out the Far East regarding an ultra-thin 15-inch Apple notebook slated to hit the market this spring indeed pertain to Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro makeover, regardless of what marketing name the company ultimately chooses to stamp on its bezel. It’s to rely heavily on Thunderbolt and be built around Intel’s forthcoming Ivy Bridge microarchitecture and mobile components currently slated to start shipping in April.
According to Appleinsider, a whole series of newly designed Macbook Pro’s will be launching as soon as April, 2012.
