13" Pro users have wanted the Air's screen for 2 years now.

My opinion on why this is a fake and reason to create a fake label is:

When everyone expects a high parameters and they doesn't show up. Stock go down.... Then you can buy cheap stock and after WWDC you will earn a lot of money.

Is Apple really using some old PC term from the 90's?

Steve would be pissed.
Wow. Try reading about current CPU tech on intel's web pages to educate yourself.

It is very possible a lame update this year with the focus on iPad. I hope not though.

I believe Apple is working on these updates, but not for just one massive unavailing.

I tend to think Apple works on updates to their product line behind locked doors that will not see the light of day for years (if at all). Some of these get leaked when a product comes close to updating since the press and blogs are looking for anything sensational to reveal, but they may not be targeted for the closest update. Their timeline may be for the update a year away.

Think about it. If you were to fake the specs to garner attention. Why would you fake mediocre specs? It is way more logical that these are the real specs. Look at past updates. Let them be your guide to the changes Apple makes to it's product line.
I guess people get blown away by different things. Cyclones, for example. But I was blown away by the first line of Intel Macbook Pros, and then similarly winded by the unibody Macbooks (the design anyway). The iMac has been called the iMac for quite some time, and I was in consumer lust when I first saw the current iteration (design) 27" in store.

I agree with your point, just not how you got there.

The resolution yes, but not the crap colours or viewing angles! The current 13" MBP screen is superior in every way except resolution.

Just because USB 3 is included does not mean Thunderbolt failed. Which logic are you applying? They are complimentary, not supplementary.

Why not at least bump the resolution to the 13" Air specs?

That too. Though I think the integrated Intel graphics are pretty decent now, they still may want to hold the Retina displays for the ones with dedicated graphics cards.

Makes sense.

I believe this to be real, and honestly- no big deal.

This really says nothing actually; other than they are filling the niche of the consumer market by adding the 13" base model to the MacBook they killed last year.

usb 3 is a nice addition-

1000 for 1280x800, a dual-core i5 and a 500Gig 5400 HD.

oh dear..

No prizes for guessing that Apple wants us to use BTO.

I haven't gone through all the pages of comments, so this has likely been brought up, but this screenshot proves nothing. If real, it's for the base model. In addition to the retina display, there's no mention of a 7200 rpm hard drive or SSD, 8 GB RAM option, or an i7. This wouldn't be the first time Apple's offered an optional upgraded screen. It's not time to panic yet.

Looks like I'll be hanging on to my late 2009 MBP for another few years.

Those specs seem about right for the education-market model. Probably priced at $999 ($200 cheaper than the current low-end MBP).

It proves no redesign and only a speed bump.

There have been rumours floating around about Apple wanting to introduce a $799 laptop to compete on price with other makers. It make sense for this to be that machine for students etc.

IMHO it's because not only does this not meet the rumored expectations, but this still puts the 13" MBP slightly behind the high end MBA in terms of speed, weight, size, and screen quality. It's using the same resolution that was introduced in 2004 (maybe 2006) in the original plastic MB.

Right, but Apple would have to change the wire that they provide with every iPod, iPad, and iPhone. Having adapters for a standard things like a 30-pin wire is very un-Apple like. I would at least expect them to keep one USB 2.0 port.

The resale value on mac book pros is very very high even on crappy old cor2duos

My GF's iPhone cord works just fine in USB 3.0 already.
