How else would love to see this?
It's called the MacBook Air. Please don't be disappointed when Apple continues to ignore us.
And twelve is the number of inches for which you are looking.
A 13" 1280x800 wouldn't be very "Pro", would it?
Besides, the Pro hardwire wouldn't fit in 13".
A Macbook Air is hardly a Pro machine. Most regular users won't even buy one because they are too limited, let alone a Pro user.
Anyways, I would love to see a 13' Macbook Pro. I would definitely make one of those my first mac.
This is exactly what I want, a 13" macbook pro. Come on Apple.... 13" aluminium laptop with a dedicated gfx card. Bring it.
I have a macbook but want a beefier card to play some games on. No I don't want a large 15" notebook, I want to keep the 13" form factor. I know many others are in a similar position with wanting more power but in a small frame. We need either a macbook pro 13" or a macbook with a dedicated gfx card, either way I'll be happy. If it doesn't happen Tuesday it may not happen for a longgg time.
This is why you put in a 13" screen with 1440x900 resolution...
Nvidia integrated graphics, better than the Intel X4500, comparable to the 8400 Nvidia dedicated. Aluminium shell like the Pro. Same speed processor.
If you want a 13" Macbook Pro, it looks like the new Macbook is as close as you will get.
Ok this new nvidia chipset... how powerful do people think the gfx will be? As long as it is powerful enough to play starcraft 2 and diablo3 when they are released next year, I may be in. Can it play cod4? What do people suspect, are there any nvidia rumors about it's capabilities?
Perhaps the mb and the mbp line will melt together dedicated graphics for everyone yehaw
I love how people talk about a "Pro" laptop, and then go on to talk about how well it'll handle video games. IMO "Pro" means professional, as in using it for work. In which case the MBP should come with a FireGL or Quadro card, not GeForce.
It'd be nice if they started doing that.
Blizzard games play on anything. Anything.
COD4 plays nice on most of the units I've seen running it.
I'd be all over a 13" MacBook Pro like flies on !@#$. If they don't come out with a 13" Pro, I will have to settle with a 15".
i wish theyd revamp to just MACBOOK
and no pro
and give us 13/15/17 options for screens
and more options for processor, gpu, hdd, etc
The new MacBook can be considered as a "13" MacBook Pro". What more do you want?
With hardware, they can use LV parts, solder RAM, and use a 1.8" HDD. Wait that that's the MacBook Air.
And Apple can use the 13" LED backlit panel, used in the Lenovo X300.
Heck, I don't care about a 12" or 13" MBP. That's just asking for more trouble.
The least I want is a freakin' LED backlight in the MBs.
Have you ever heard of the VAIO Z series? That is a well spec'd machine.
I would love a 13", i'm probably gonna get the new 15" pro because i need the dedicated graphics, but the 13" form factor of my black macbook is just the right size.
Yeah, I have a friend that has one (very nice looking laptop!), but it's pretty thick. And I don't think an Pro machine would be thicker dan a non-Pro machine. On top of that, it will cost you a lot more to put the same specs of a 15" laptop into 13".
So 13" is quite technically possible, but with compromises.
One of Apple's biggest mistakes ever was killing off the 12" MBP. If they released a 12" MBP with the same dimensions as my 12" Powerbook but thinner, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Until that day, my trusty 12" Powerbook will keep on chugging.
I dont really think you can call the MBA a 12" replacment, it has no where near the power needed for a pro machine.
I wouldnt mind a super spec 13" MacBook, but it isnt Apples usual animal - the pros are almost always bigger than their lower powered siblings.
But the 13" MacBook (revamp) is likely to be as (if not more) powerful as the current Pro's (lower line up anyways)
With my pro machine, one of the reasons I got it is because of having more screen real-estate.
So, for me, I don't WANT a smaller MBP. If I need something smaller, I won't be doing as much with it and will gladly take a MB or an Air.
13" MBP = my 12" PowerBook G4 replacement....
Wow. This would be great. Hopefully actual serious power in a small, reasonably portable (without sacrificing specs) footprint. And if I need more screen real estate, I can hook up a high-res monitor.
This could be great. One can only hope, though, that Apple wouldn't make it too thin, and thus compromise on its performance. Even though we know they would.
