There's new information on what to expect from the rumored MacBook Pro refresh announcement will come on Feb. 24, which MacRumors has pointed out is Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs's birthday.

The Web site Boy Genius Report is also offering up some fresh details on what customers may be able to expect from the refresh. The site says that there will be a larger glass trackpad and that the new laptops will be about a half-pound lighter than their current counterparts.

The site also reports the somewhat bewildering rumor that the new laptops will have a dedicated, internal eight- to 16-GB solid-state hard drive for the operating system and a regular hard drive for everything else. The laptops will also reportedly be offered with an option for all solid-state drives.
