MacBook Pro specs revealed

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on February 23rd, 2011

Looks like some Germans have gotten their hands on a blurry photograph of the new MacBook Pro specs and posted it online. Spotted in the photograph, Intel’s new Light Peak port, which will transfer files at 10Gbps, has been renamed Thunderbolt.

They may also be getting larger trackpads than the ones available today. They may also get lighter, by as much as half a pound on average, but we don’t know how this would be accomplished.
