I'm bored and have decided to needlessly speculate, because after reading about Sandy Bridge, I really want a new MBP. (I'm currently running a mid-2009 Core Duo...15"). I was wondering what the peanut gallery thought about the possibility of Apple releasing the standard MacBook Pro, plus a larger ultrathin "air" version? Apple does have a history of leading the charge with models that are not the "pro" models, and then later reflecting those things in the Pro models. It seems we are right on the cusp of the wave that's finally, once and for all, going to kill off hard drives. Perhaps this will play out over the next 2-3 years. Personally, if they wedged Sandy Bridge + a 500 GB flash chip into a very thin and reasonably light hybrid of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, this is a machine I would buy right now, even though the storage capacity is only the same as what I currently have. (I'm imagining something with all the other "pro" features, like great screen, backlit keyboard, etc., and I realize the machine wouldn't be quite as thin as the Air...but I really just mean a Pro laptop with no hard drive.) In fact, I'd probably opt for that over a hard drive-based MacBook Pro with 1 GB HD space, even if it was a bit more expensive. Just wanted to know if people would like this kind of machine, and if they thought this was a plausible release for this product cycle?
