RUMOR: Ultra-thin, ultra-portable, 12-inch Apple MacBook Pro heading to market?

“Speculation has been running rampant in recent days over a ’12-inch MacBook Pro’….very much similar to the ‘MacBook Thin’ that we have been talking about here on Rumors since before the first Intel-based Apple laptops shipped,” Mac OS Rumors reports.

MOSR reports on rumored specs that include, “12-inch widescreen display, 1280×800 resolution, 2.16 or 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors, 1GB of DDR2-667 memory standard. Max. capacity 3GB, standard “Pro” ports: USB2, Firewire 400 & 800, gigabit ethernet, digital/analog audio minijack I/O ports, ExpressCard/34, 2.5in SATA HDDs at 120GB & up, ‘Combo’ or ‘Super’ optical drive.”

  1. For all of the rumored products to be true, the keynote would have to be 4 hours long. It seems the rumor sites get people’s hopes up so they feel let down when ‘only’ 2 or 3 revolutionary products are announced.

  2. a question for the savvy: is Apple’s separation of its “Pro” line from its consumer line consistent with other computer makers?

    It is not clear to me what makes the above rumoured product a “pro” laptop. Is it really just having FW800?

  3. The Ultra-Thin Mac Book Pro would not be that ground breaking to require a “Special Event” release. It would be just like the Core 2 Duo release.

    The “iPhone” would require a special event release. I don’t believe it would be MacWorld. It would be in Feb like the Mac Mini and HiFi.

    My thougts on upcoming release schedule:

    Ultra-Thin (released before MacWorld)

    iLife ’07 (released)
    iWork ’07 (released)
    .mac ’07 (released)
    Leopard (75% chance preview, 25% chance release)
    iTV (released)
    True Video iPod (released)

    Leopard (75% chance release)
    iPhone (released)
