    As I see it:

    15 and 17 Inch:
    ~2.6 or 2.8GHZ
    ~2, 4, 6 GB of ram
    ~200, 250, 320GB HDD @ 7200 rpm
    ~500GB @ 5400 rpm
    ~128GB SSD
    ~Glossy Display
    ~NVIDIA 9700 GT
    ~HDMI out
    ~Blu-ray Drive optional

    (in the Attached Photo there is a piece of tape covering something. I think it could be a HDMI port. Note the shape of the outline)


    What do you think???

    I have a feeling BluRay might be as standard, seeing as it's won the format war now. SuperDrive was what they called CD and DVD drives. Maybe the BluRay, DVD and CD drives will be called MegaDrives? HyperDrives? :)

    Those specs seem very plausible. I'm not in the market for one but aren't there 2.5" drives even bigger than 320 GB?

    We have SEVERAL threads already. SEARCH.

    Also you're missing the 8GB option. It supports it.
    No SSD standard.
    No Blu-ray standard.
    No only glossy. Matte will remain an option.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA RIGHT. A 9700. In a Mac. Nice one. No better than a 9650 GT.
    No need for HDMI.

    Also, there are 500GB 2.5" drives and have been for some time.

    Oh... 5400 rpm. Yeah. Ok. I guess pro users would want more than that.

    I still love my 120 GB 5400 rpm drive.;)

    I hate it when people do that. Ah, well.

    You said specs and didn't mention BTOs. The assumption is that it is standard.

    Why not? Cooling and Apple's self-imposed power draw. Any chip they use will be under 23 watts.

    No need for HDMI without Blu-ray, at least.

    So? What does 7200 RPMs have to do with anything? They have a 4200 RPM drive in the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air right now.

    That tape covered port totally looks like HDMI. I have a feeling it totally is. Sweet!

    I now find it funny. :D

    My apologies; I didn't see the Blu-ray thing.

    And yeah, they use 4200 RPM drives now. They need to be using faster ones, but they aren't.

    From the apple website

    "Select the standard drive capacity at 5400 rpm if you're storing text documents, email, and a regular-size photo, music, and video library."

    Oh, standard, yes, but they do use 4200s.

    They certainly won't put a 4200 standard; it'll be BTO like they are now.

    You've got to love all the speculation on the next MB/MBA/MBP. Imagine when the Apple Store website goes down just before the event. I can see all the people standing in line in front of their local Apple Store playing games on their iPhone or iPod Touch with ear buds in and screaming, "I'm a mac!". Meanwhile, the PC users will be in their workspace waiting for the Windows service patch to download...

    Im hoping that that "slot" that is covered by tape might me something like HP's expansion port. Maybe Apple will make a "docking bar" that will plug in there so we can finally dock our pro machines without having to hook up a million wires! :)

    By my measurements, the tape is covering a DVI port...

    more than 4gb of ram on a laptop, seems a bit much but i agree with the rest.

    That case looks sooooooo thin!
    I hope there is like a massive price drop that would rule.

    Not if you plan on keeping it a few years it's not.

    That little port next to the audio jacks looks more like Mini-DVI to me - it's too tall and not wide enough to be HDMI.

    The port with the tape over it really does look like an HDMI input. And why else would there be tape over it? Everything else is out in the open in the pictures...why is that one port blocked? That being said, does that lock in Blu-ray? Or no?

    Don't the current MacBook Pros support 8 GBs of RAM already?
