Intel Also Launching 'Light Peak' Thursday

CNet reports that Intel is launching Light Peak on Thursday, February 24th,
The date happens to coincide with Apple's expected release of new MacBook Pros.
We don't expect this to be a coincidence and perhaps explains why Apple choose to launch the new MacBook Pros on a Thursday rather than Tuesday.

Could the new MBP's have Light Peak
Nice! So LightWire will be on the new Macbook pros! I love it!
Everything's coming together now...
Please . Give us MBP + Light Peak.
does this confirm it?
are there anymore doubts?
As long as USB is still around then good. Let's see what it can do.
Although, admittedly, I'm also solely wireless now (Time Machine backups, iTunes, file server, print server).
So much for only a spec bump with no media event My guess is that they might have a new MBP on hand to show off the technology.
Lightpeak addition to MBP is the only justification for a refresh in the product line since usb 3 is catching on. Make us proud Intel/Apple!!!
Great news. But, doesn't your device also have to support light peak as well like your iphone, iPad or HDD?
Not trying to ruin the excitement, but no device uses light peak at this point. Probably because it's not out yet...
But, I am all for faster data transfer.
If this MBP gets major redesign including metal, thinner body, SSD and light peak. I am going to highly consider buying one.
I really hope this Light Peak thing catches on.
If it does, this could kinda be a big deal.
This explains how they managed to sort out the nvidia chipset issue with intel processor, looks like their working hands in hands now.
But i hardly see Intel presenting the new MBP to the public first, just to show their new technology..
Guess that clinches the deal.
USB 2 is gettin pretty tired
Light Peak seems extremely promising for so many things, Ill be buying one of the NEW MBP not sure if 13" 15" or 17" depends on what is available at each spec, but Light Peak would be nice to experiment with until I build a PC(Windows) with it.
Currently undergoing pre-launch phase with the MBP 'hype' - too many expectations .
Post-launch - no LP and hate/negativity on the boards.
p.s. im all up for LP on the MBP's.
if i was in the need for a macbook pro (besides the fact that i want one without any justification or need just because it is awesome) i would go buy one lol
AppleInsider says the 13" MBP will have 3 USB ports, 12 hours battery life, 1440x900 resolution, Core i3 chip, weigh 0.44 lbs less, 16 GB SSD to store OS X (for fast boot), and offer a matte screen option on high-end model. No more white Mac Book.
The second generation iPad is rumored to be announced on the following Tuesday
Now I just hope soon to see a card to add lightpeak on my MacPro.
The new MacBook Pros are looking amazing if they have a second SSD drive, lighter and lightpeak.
Yeah, I just read that. Sounds fantastic.
Well this doesn't mean it is making it to the MBPs. My guess is it won't.
I'm quite stunned, and still slightly skeptical, but it sure seems like it's going to happen.
Now I can plug my...my...what exactly can I plug into it starting Thursday (when I get my new MBP, naturally)?
