Report: Thinner MacBook Pro to Debut at WWDC

MacBook Air

The rumored MacBook Pro takes a few design ideas form the ultra-thin MacBook Air

According to reports, Apple will release the long-rumored thin MacBook Pro during WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference). The new laptop is said to not only be thinner, but make use of flash-based memory, like the MacBook Air. This will reduce startup time for the computer, and help to increase battery life.

Also said to be part of the new MacBook Pro is the high-resolution Retina Display, like what’s found on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. It will probably look pretty nice, but the truth is that I can’t really see the pixels on my 2010 MacBook Air 11-inch screen right now, so I don’t know how much of a difference it will make. Sure, it makes a difference on iOS devices, but those things are typically much closer to your eyes. Also said to be included is USB 3.0, which is supposed to be pretty dang fast.

Either way, this is something to look out for next month at WWDC 12.
