    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.

    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.

    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.

    It's not just Apple products this happens with either. Samsung's Galaxy S3 was meant to have a 1920x1080 display and a ceramic/metal case. As we now know, this wasn't true.

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

    Not going to happen. Optical drives will be removed from all Mac's eventually. The Mac mini and MacBook Air were just the start.
