    Hey I found this picture on flickr. I noticed it has an air keyboard, an hdmi port, and a green apple logo glow. Could the green be part of the stoplight rumors I've heard in the new logos?:apple:

    Why would it have HDMI and DVI? Looks more like eSATA to me.

    Oh, and it's a stinky, stinky mockup.

    Sorry, that photos looks like a complete fake!!!

    Also, there's absolutely no reason to have a dedicated HDMI socket on a laptop that has a fully compliance DVI output. All the signals required for a HDMI device can be found on the standard DVI socket, all one needs is a DVI to HDMI cable.

    AND..

    There's no need for a eSATA port either!! Because there are countless of expresscard adapters to fulfil a user's requirements. If anything.. Apple should consider making more compatible drivers, so users with eSATA RAID setups and drives can boot of them.

    Definitely eSATA. And definitely a terrible photoshop.

    Complete fake for sure. Everyone knows the next MBP is going to be fluorescent orange and the entire case will glow when it sleeps.

    I would rather have HDMI than DVI to carry audio as well.

    plus its a smaller connector and you can get a HDMI -> DVI adapter

    Yeah, the biggest advantage of HDMI (on a laptop) is the reduced size compared to DVI.

    Downside here would be...
    NO dual-link on HDMI, so no high resolution monitors

    I was wondering about that - so HDMI can't do above the regular 1920x1200.

    HDMI and DVI are the same thing, hdmi just carries audio. There's no technical reason a hdmi to dual dvdi adapter couldn't be made.

    Well no, but at this point it doesn't exist.

    Exactly. Everyone that keeps asking for HDMI seems to forget about that. :rolleyes:

    Please please tell me that you have a visual impairment! For what ungodly reason would Apple decide to make the Apple glow green? THEY AREN"T FRICKIN' ALIENWARE!!!!! Plus the rest of the mockup looks like $h!t

    PS

    Don't take this in the wrong way

    Yea, that green glow looks stupid

    eSata puzzles me with the new FW3200 being standardized they would be more likely to go that route.

    eSATA drives are cheaper since they don't require a controller (like FW does) and because of greater sales volume.

    HDMI supports dual link if you use the Type B connector (don't think anyone has used this version yet).

    Fake.

    The MacBook Pro is the same design, not the new one rumored to come out soon.

    MBP will eventually have HDMI, however with the next revision I doubt it. Apple seems to only add features or lack thereof after all its competitors have a year ago. If Apple does add it in the next revision, well shut me up. :D

    Yes there is, HDMI doesn't have enough pins to carry a dual-link signal.

    A dual-link DVI-D or DVI-I port has more pins than a 'non-dual-link' DVI-D or DVI-I port. HDMI doesn't have enough pins to make up a dual-link DVI port.

    Not possible sadly, sorry.

    If HDMI is ever introduced on the MacBook Pro, Apple will most probably keep the DVI-I connection too.
