MacBook Pros to be as thin as Air by Christmas

first_imgEven if you don’t like Apple products, it’s hard not to appreciate the beauty of the MacBook Air laptop. It is super thin while remaining quite powerful. It certainly puts most, if not all 11 and 13-inch laptops that have gone before it to shame in sheer performance.The design aesthetics introduced with the MacBook Air have garnered a lot of good press and feedback from users, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the MacBook Pro range might be heading in that direction too.AdChoices广告There’s a rumor making the rounds that Apple is working on a new 15-inch and 17-inch laptop that takes on the look of the MacBook Air to a large extent. These laptops may be MacBooks, but are more likely revamped MacBook Pros.If true, it would mean Apple is going to make its complete line-up of laptops as thin as Air, while at the same time dropping the optical drive completely. The only question would then be, what happens to the 13-inch MacBook Pro if it is in effect almost the equivalent of the 13-inch MacBook Air?It has also been suggested that we should expect to see these new MacBook Pros in time for Christmas. That would be quite a short update cycle seeing as the last Pro refresh only happened in February. However, if the MacBook Air is surprising even Apple with its popularity, I wouldn’t be surprised if the company fast-tracked another redesign, would you?More at MacRumors and TUAWlast_img read more
