“There are several interesting reports that suggest that the new MacBook Pro 2012 will be built with Liquidmetal (LQMT),” NVO News reports. “Reports also suggest that Macbook Pro and MacBook Air may be combined.”

“Liquidmetal is more solid, though it is lighter and scratch-resistant than the existing aluminum unibody,” NVO News reports. “The Cupertino based tech giant Apple is reported to have an exclusive agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies to use the material since 2010. But so far its usage has remained negligible and the only thing Apple has produced with this material is a SIM ejection tool.”

NVO News reports, “A leading Apple blog suggests that the forthcoming MacBook Pro will come loaded with Intel’s third generation Ivy Bridge chips and USB 3.0 ports. The first thing is almost predictable and it is expected that MacBook Pro will be the first device to hit stores with the Ivy Bridge microprocessor, which Intel has officially announced a few days back. But we need to wait a bit more to allow things to become clearer regarding speculations about Liquidmetal.”
