Well the iFixit mens'n womens have already gotten their hands on a new MBP and torn it apart. You can see it here. Of interesting note: the logic board is TINY! It looks to be a bit "thicker" than the previous gen MBP but it is significantly less wide. This layout makes more general sense but also means that heat might be an even bigger issue with these, being as concentrated as they are. the optical drive is now SATA the display connector now uses the same "combo" connector the MacBook does. the single connector carries both the data for the LCD panel and has a USB bus for the iSight camera. Previous models had these cables separate the iFixit guys state that Apple is unique in using poly-bladed fans. Apparently they haven't looked inside anything other than a mac in quite some time. this is either brilliant or scary. the actual design of the heatsink hasn't changed a bit from the AlPro's, but its now arranged vertically rather than horizontally inside the machine. i'd be curious to see some power-tests with this design to see how hot things get. there is now only a single board inside the machine. every 15 and 17" apple laptop enclosed in aluminum has had two boards, the logic board and a "Left I/O" board which had the DC-in jack, the Audio ports, and an assortment of USB and other connectors depending on the model. Now, just like the MacBook's, the only separate board is the MagSafe jack. they make a big deal of the new keyboards being "user-fixable", but i'm not really sure why. the previous MBP keyboards were even easier to remove. So there are just a few of my thoughts. Yours? *edit* here is the link for the MacBook teardown. i find it considerably less interesting as the general design concept hasn't changed all that much.
