Basically, I don't think Apple will interfere with the styling much aside from that wedge shape at the palm rest perhaps. I hope the ends aren't sharp.

But he said better screens (didn't say higher res, but I assumed he meant that), USB 3.0 (Yes!) and Ivy Bridge (a given) and faster GPUs (assumed to be a given) are coming for sure to the 2012 line, as well as a push for SSDs (don't know if this means they're coming standard or just cheaper ugprade prices).

But if there's a $2500 2012 MBP that features a faster Quad Core Ivy Bridge CPU, 256GB SSD, 1680 x 1050 screen and faster GPU, that's a hella tempting.

Also I think Apple needs to drop the low end MBP 15.

Start it at $1999 with the base being
- Quad Core Ivy Bridge CPU (CPU Upgrade $200)
- Dedicated GPU (option for higher end model - $150)
- 4GB RAM (8GB upgrade - $150)
- 128GB SSD (256GB upgrade $300)
- 1680 x 1050 Glossy Screen (1920 x 1200AG upgrade - $150)

anything else?
