MacBook Pro to get a refresh

Written by David Stellmack

Sources sure it is about 2 weeks away
Our sources close to Jobs’ land tell us that you can expect the fruit tree vendor to refresh the MacBook Pro product line in the next two weeks. Dealers are already working toward unloading existing MacBook Pro inventory, but most dealers we spoke with suggest that they have some inventory of older MacBook Pro units.

The new MacBook Pro is said to sport more than a few interesting new features, including the Mac OS installed on an internal SSD, with everything else continuing to reside on the hard disk. This should greatly improve the performance of the OS on the MacPro.

Beyond the internal SSD for the OS, the new model is said to be one pound lighter than the previous model, and is said to also offer a larger glass trackpad. Whispers suggest there are likely to be five models from which to choose.

Are your 'sources' Engadget and AppleInsider?

1 lb lighter? Than that means they've cut build quality.

Quoting Bl0bb3r:
1 lb lighter? Than that means they've cut build quality.

Actually, it's due to them using a new type of alloy (I think I heard liquidmetal?) for the case, as well as making it thinner.

I like to give the benefit of the doubt, though I've heard a fairly strong material. We'll see in time, but it doesn't look like a simple attempt to cut costs.
