Do you think the MacBook Air or the MacBook pro will be update first?
MBP, because I want that one.
Couple months later
MBP 13, MBA 11/13
Quad cores drop first (April), dual cores a couple months later (June).
However I wish the new MBA's would be released in April. Can't wait to get my hands on one.
It's going to be the 15s first. Then the 13 Pros in June-ish. Then the 17s shortly there after.
Airs won't refresh until late summer/early fall, IMO.
That would be a communication nightmare from Apple's point of view.
Has this scenario ever happened before?
Part of me thinks they may merge, but another part believes it's going to be the MBP (due an update), with the MBA being completely revamped down the line to differentiate even more considering the MBP is rumored to be slimmer.
If that's the case, I predict a radically new MBA later with some advanced and exciting new features, eg perhaps a retina display, and to coincide with Mountain Lion. At least that's what I hope!
If the new MacBook Pro 13 becomes as light as the current MacBook Air, then it would be interesting to see what Apple comes up with in the next version of the Air.
While I believe it'd be a smart move economically to merge the 13in MBA with the 13in MBP, there's probably still a certain market out there that'd like a reconfigurable, upgradeable pro-type 13in Macbook.
Thusly, I see the Pros getting updated first, then the Airs getting updated later. Most likely because I believe the LV CPUs would come out before the ULV CPUs. Also, they need to space out launches to keep everyone psyched and begging for more (i.e. iMacs/Mac Pro get updated first, then MBP and Mac Mini a month later, then the Airs a month after that, then the iPhone a month or two after that, and then some new iPods, and then before you know it, the 4th gen iPad)
