  • MacBook Pro Specs Leaked


    MacRumors is reporting that they have received leaked specs for the upcoming MacBook Pro models due to be released on Thursday. With so much pent up anticipation for the latest MacBook Pros, it’s not surprising that more details are starting to emerge. Most of the leaked specs will come as little surprise to most. Updating to the Sandy Bridge family of processors is the most obvious upgrade in the works, however, these new MacBook Pro’s may still include a surprise or two. Apple may be discontinuing the white polycarbonate entry-level MacBook in favor of the 11-inch MacBook Air instead. Both MacBooks are priced similarly and Apple may simply be streamlining the MacBook line down to a more manageable two.

    MacBook Pro Specs so far include:
    • 16 GB Solid State Drives on all models for faster Mac OS X boot times
    • The 13-inch model will include an Intel Core i3 Sandy Bridge processor
    • The 13-inch model will increase the number of USB ports to 3
    • A matte screen option will be available for the high-end 13-inch model
    • The SuperDrive will be replaceable with an SSD on the 15-inch and 17-inch models
    • Better screens on all models: 1440x900 for the 13-inch model and 1680x1050 for the 15-inch model
    • All models will be 200-300 grams lighter
    • All models will have better battery life: the 13-inch model will now last 12 hours and the 15-inch model will now last a full 10 hours
    • The 17-inch model will accommodate up to 8 GB of RAM
    These leaked specs make no mention of Light Peak being included with the new MacBook Pro models. Intel is set to unveil Light Peak on the same day that the new MacBook Pro models are expected to be released. It may just be a coincidence, but I wouldn't be surprised if these new Macs do include Light Peak connections at this point. We only have to wait a few more days to see what surprises, if any, are in store for us with these new MacBook Pro models. If the leaked specs are any indication, then we are about to see a significant upgrade to the full line MacBook Pro’s.

      @trigun989-The 16 gig SSD is for the OS only. It will still have another HD. The small SSD is there to make boot times faster.

      Current 13" and 15" and 17" support 8GB Ram already, does it mean that 17" comes with 8GB standard?

      Any info on the graphics card(s)?

      I wonder if you can partition the included SSD install your bootcamp windows on the SSD too.

      watch out for the Thunderbolt Connector!
      I call fake on that. The "thunderbolt" connecter is the mini-display port the with a photoshopped icon. Isn't lightpeak supposed to be that same form factor as usb

      My MBP is only 2.0ghz with 2 gigs of ram (maxed out) but I am more productive with it than my tricked out Phenom 3.2 quad core 2TB raid 8gigs ram Linux box.

      blarg! I just got a MBP 13" in late August. I love it in every way but that higher-res screen is very attractive to me. I use my laptop mainly for my work in photoshop, extra pixels count there. But, I think I'll hold on to my pro for at least another year. Or until I get a raise...

      High end 15" coming my way shortly, will be my first Mac. Better processor, faster CPU, upgrading to hi-res screen, $300 cheaper than the one I priced last week. Winner.

      I do believe they use a much more intensive testing process for the batteries than they have in past years. While the battery may not last as long as before, due to the power increase, it wouldn't be as significant of a difference if you took last years model and applied the same test to it.
