How are they going to keep all the ports on the "rumored" macbook pro?

    so with the rumored shots of the macbook pro having a facelift to look more air like. The weirdest thing is that it looks like the battery would run along the back or at least most of the back near the screen. Thing is if the battery moves there where are you going to put the ports, because i would assume you would keep the optical drive where it is. Does that mean it would be set up like the macbook and all be along the left? (or lets hope not the front of the laptop).

    maybe if apple follow through with their patent on a optical slot on the bottom of the laptop that would open up some more real estate for ports.

    just a bit of speculation

    Any design rumors are just that; rumors. No-one except for the highest of the highly ranked people at Apple know what it is going to look like. I wouldn't be worrying about ports on a computer which doesn't officially exist yet.

    OP, the battery is thought to go on the front of the new MBP, not the back. This will leave the ports where they are and most likely give better access to the HD and RAM.

    Hmm, battery on the front. As long as it's not charging, that would be good, as it would allow a cooler wrist rest/hand rest when typing. I know after a while, the front of my HP gets super hot since the HD and the RAM are right up front. Sometimes I can barely use the trackpad.

    Super Drive could possibly be on the side and ports would be moved to the back.
