Apple - New MacBook Pro Models Revealed


It's been rumoured for a while, but the 24th Feb release date turns out to have been correct, and the somewhat expected new MacBook Pro models have been announced.

And tasty they look too.
Processing power and graphics have had a healthy boost, but the thing that appeals most (for me, at least) is the inclusion of a seemingly very capable high-speed IO.
Since the Express card slots were removed on 15-inch models and below some time ago, there hasn't been much in the way of high speed connectivity possible for your MacBook Pro - unless you count the venerable Firewire 800 port.
But with Firewire devices slowly becoming a thing of the past in many eyes, the lack of eSata or even USB 3.0 hampered some.

With the new Thunderbolt IO (Apple's designation for Intels new Light Peak technology) any such concerns have been left in the dust... along with the speeds of current IO devices too, from the specs published on Apple's website - they say:-

 Thunderbolt pipeline is more than 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0, and it offers unprecedented expansion capabilities. It changes what you can do on a notebook.

Looking forward to that!
