    It's very possible, but it's just speculation in the end (even if it is probably true).


    Oh and, lol gawker blog.

    it sounds like pure speculation, but I'd guess that it's probably somewhat true... SSD, Unibody, no real surprises there.

    Solid state is the next logical step. It's fast, quiet, runs cool and uses less battery. It just needs larger capacities at current hard drive prices.

    +1. I can see apple keeping the unibody construction method, really adds to the feeling of build quality on these machines.

    Also, if the $999 air has SSD, i would expect the MBP to have ssd. Not sure I would like that though, as Apple SSDs arent as fast as aftermarket sandforce.

    However, i could see apple using SSD but average/less advanced processors to make their machines faster, without faster processors

    I'd like them to stick with user replaceable hard drives and let me get a better ssd.

    It's Gizmodo. Reporting on Apple.

    Enough said.

    Surely not having to worry about being dropped from the event invite list would allow Gizmodo greater freedom to post leaks?

    That, or they would try to get back in good favor with Apple, because it definitely hurts them when Apple events roll around.

    Honestly, though, my dislike towards Gizmodo goes back much, much longer than that. Ever tried getting them to credit you for something they just stole and reposted? Yeah, it's hell. It's simply a sleazy outfit that I tend to avoid.

    Most likely apple will go SSD + HDD for a while and then drop HDD completely for SSD. MBP already come with storage like 250 GB on basic models, and obviously 256 GB SSD costs so much money. Apple will do SSD + HDD at first, but this is the future of MBP.

    i would be surprised if the new MBP DIDN'T look like that. I thought everyone would think that is the path Apple is going.

    The only problem is that SSDs are soo over priced still. I mean look at the ridiculous SSd kit that they have for the MBA. It is as much as the base MBA!

    For the performance advantage they offer over HDDs, SSDs really aren't that overpriced anymore (~$100 for a 60GB is good, considering they aren't meant for mass storage).

    They seem like fairly safe assumptions to me. Everybody talks about how great the MBAs are with SSDs in them so it's a no-brainer to think they will be standard on MBPs.
    Hi-res displays? Yes, good, as long as Apple are working on a resolution-independent OS or at the very least offer an option to increase the size of system menus, etc - I could not cope if the tiny menus were made any smaller!! :D

    Nothing special in that article, it's pure speculation. There are arguments for and against SSD in all MBPs so the truth is, we won't know until Apple releases them.
