I saw in a youtube video that there maybe introduction of usb 3.0 ports on it.

usb 3.0 with there own thunder bolt port! interesting would like to see.

The rumor mills been relatively quiet about the hardware that is not an iOS device. I read about the USB 3.0 as well. Stands to reason given the mass use of the port. I think I vaguely recall reading something about the ethernet port being shrunk, as it is the only port stopping the portables from becoming thinner designs.

"Retina" style display with huge resolution increase, Ethernet port removed, thinner design. Those are the main rumors. Ivy Bridge processors.

Yes i also heard about the ethernet port.

do you think the minimum amount of shipped ram could be 8gb? or will they keep it at 4?

Well that looks dissapointing, given the speculations.

i read somewhere that there would be 'hinge issues' were they to release a 15-inch macbook pro as tapered slim as the mba (in effect a 15-inch mba)
which is a shame, as removing the optical drive you'd hope for an ultrabook style thin ANd light design. although the biggest bonus would be shedding
some pounds off the 15inch rather than it being ultra thin a priority.

I was hoping that blu ray was going to arrive in the MBP.

Thats never coming according to some, or well it would challenge their own itunes store so apple dont care about adding it. I have an external usb powered bluray burner which can be used along with a new player (cant remember name) but I have never tried it yet. It just looks doublful apple will add the proper support in the future.

The rumours and speculation are always unrealistic though. This is why it is best to be a pessimist.

I think Apple are still working on a redesigned 15" MacBook Pro. As you say, it definitely needs to be lighter.
