The AppleInsider reported yesterday that new MacBook Pros will be released this Thursday, which also happens to be the birthday of Mr. Steve Jobs. The newest MacBook line of Apple laptops is thought to use Intel's new dual-core Sandy Bridge mobile chips, which have faced a flaw and some delays. Yesterday, Intel released an updated price list that contained new dual-core chips, the fastest of the Sandy Bridge chips run at 2.7GHz.
Another rumor from Boy Genius Report suggests the new MacBook Pro will feature a solid state drive that will only load the operating system. If true, this would give the MacBook Pro a much faster start-up time, similar to that of the newest MacBook Air. This means, if true, that the new MacBook will have a dedicated, internal eight- to 16-GB solid-state hard drive for the operating system and a regular hard drive for everything else.
