    We know about the processors for the new macbook pros, but what else can we expect from the release? Will there be a change in form ? thinner ? more ports ? lighter ? will it lean towards a macbook air look ?

    Are there any other rumors of anything significant or will there only be a bump in processors.

    I hear there will be 14 inch screen, new 1.9" hard drive form factor and mini USB port.

    Not really trolling just being a sarcastic smart ***... but you do realize that if you click on page 2 or God forbid use the search you should find several threads on it. Your "time" does not change the fact that you should still use the search. I've done this a few times myself, its embarrassing its like if you were in a meeting and you asked a question someone asked like 5 minutes ago.
    My bad I was obviously underestimating the situation.:D:D

    I doubt anything drastic, it will still be metal and will be a laptop. Maybe wedge shaped like MBA and possibly thinner

    I'll go with a top of the line MBP with a LiquidMetal case and framework. :D

    Other than that I don't speculate much of a change aside from processors, maybe an option for SSD (like MBA). Though those aren't form factor...unless they have completely tested their new battery technology I don't see the cases getting much smaller.

    I personally think the only big design change would be the removal of the super drive and make the macbook pro smaller or with more battery.

    Externally, I doubt it. Internally, I hope there are major changes.
