Apple is preparing a Macbook Pro refresh, that'll bring all models up to speed with Intel's current Core i5 and i7 processors. Sources told AppleInsider that the refresh is on the cards as early as the end of this month, in order to keep competitive over the holiday season ahead of the Ivy Bridge next-gen refresh in Q2 2012. …
Bootcamp battery life issues
Well unless they sort out the battery life issues under bootcamp I'm not interested,,,,
That's good news, but what I'd like to know is when we can expect a revised MacPro?
I don't just mean a processor upgrade and some thunderbolt ports either. Surely it's time for a smaller case that we can stuff with maybe 10 2.5" SAS discs and a pair of SSDs too. Nvidia Quadros?
A beer while I'm waiting
The big question ...
What colour will it be?
Phew - no physical change
I'm glad they're not dumping the optical drive just yet - if there was a 15" machine as thin as the Air in the offing I might get into trouble with my bank manager!
A 15" air is pointless. The whole point is that it's easily portable, 15" is just too big. The 13" is perfect IYAM, but then I just got one :)
My 2.2 runs hotter than hell when the gfx card kicks in. Not nice to keep on my knees.
A beer for coolant.
I wish they'd shave the front of it
That 90 corner at the front which you end up resting your hand on when using the trackpad really aggravates my CTS, be nice if they just took an angle grinder to it and rounded it off a bit.
other than that they're great machines.
Will they be able to acccept 16GB of RAM?
If that were the case, I'd be tempted to replace my Late 2010 MBP with a one of the expected ones.
MBP Update - more...
I do think that the review here may have left out a potential screen resolution hike for the 13 incher.
Current 13inch MBP have a 1280x800 whereas the 13inch air's have a 1440 x 900.
