Macbook Pro Update (Intel Light Peak + AMD Graphics added)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Official announcements should be later on today.

Looks like a pretty big update, models 15" and up will have Quad i7's with AMD 6490 for the 15" and AMD 6750 for the 17".
Also has an Intel Light Peak port now called "Thunderbolt" (10gbps)

Feels like they completely skipped USB 3.0

They also skipped the whole "giving users 7,200 RPM HDD's" too for the Macbooks. I wonder what the "Pro"'s will get.

EDIT: It looks like they will indeed get Light Peak; though it looks like they are using a non-standard connector for it (normal Light Peak is pictured as being rectangular and USB-Like).
