Report: More Macbook Pro refresh details
The Web site MacRumors said it has confirmed images and details about the MacBook Pro refresh expected Thursday.
One of the features on the new MacBook is LightPeak, the super-fast Intel connector, which Apple seems to be calling "Thunderbolt." (Not to be confused with the HTC handset of the same name.) A shot of the side of the new low-end 13-inch laptop -- which MacRumors says it has confirmed -- shows a port in between the USB and FireWire ports with a lightning bolt-shaped icon. A specifications sheet up on MacRumors from the French site Mac4Ever indicates that the Thunderbolt port will also support Mini DisplayPort devices.
The new 13-inch laptops are said to be 12.78 by 8.94 by 0.95 inches and weigh 4.5 pounds, the same as the current model.
