    :p

    Well, it seems like we know lots about the 2012 MBP all of a sudden. Is it too early to start speculating on the late 2012 CPU bump or the 2013 Haswell MBP?

    The most important question is: Will it include a toaster?

    I was hoping for a coffee cup holder that slides out like on Windows laptops.

    We no absolutely nothing about the UNRELEASED MBPs. The only thing close to credible we've got so far is a 12k geekbench score and a possible CPU.

    Everything else is a he said she said rumor/speculation.

    How about we take this one release at a time eh?

    We know quite a lot now. Bloomberg does not play rumour games to attract views.

    I think we know a good deal. For starters, it will be an Apple product. Also, it will be a laptop. A screen is very likely, and a keyboard also. I'm sure there is more.

    Laptop with a built in screen would revolutionize the industry!





    Bloomberg might not report rumors/speculations but their original source is 9to5mac. So yeah....... I dunno.

    That's not how I read it, but I hope it's not one those cyclical rumours again.

    Bloombergs source is "the people" :D :D :D

    I'm not aware of bloomberg jumping on any mac/apple rumors in the past. They have their own analysts and hopefully a few sources that are better than digitimes. What I recall from the last years is that launch date rumors can be quite accurate, but hardware specs can be all over the place until some real data shows up.

    Foxconn, not Apple. Apple is just the distributor/seller.

    That's just not a very smart comment. Apple are the designer too. This is how it works now for nearly all the electronic companies. Foxconn makes laptops for many companies. They even make the Xbox 360 and the PS3.

    You missed the point. We talked about a product, not about a design.

    How smart you are! ;)

    Since few people care about optical drives anymore. It seems a good idea to put a like 2mm thick slide out coffeecup holder into its place.:rolleyes:
    If the table in the coffee shop is so small the you constantly risk kicking the coffee off the table, it would be a great help to have such a coffee cup holder.
    That would be some awesome feature.

    I am very smart and good looking too; my mum can confirm this.

    Regardless, are you suggesting that a product does not need a design? And that because a product is made by company X for company Y, it's now a company X product? That's just not very smart at all.
