Apple Plans to Offer Redesigned MacBook Pros
Few years ago when Apple has released its first MacBook Air, hence, awakened the rivalry among different producers. This year, however, the company is planning to reinvent MacBook Pro by adopting the same design traits of MacBook Air dominated for being the first popular choice of mobile consumers in terms of ultra slim notebook.
The redesigned MacBook Pro will have a new, ultra-thin body without its typical features such as optical disk drives and traditional hard drives in favor of lightweight models. This employs flash-memory based on solid-state drives, extended battery life, instant –on capabilities and rely distribution for software and media.
The company will focus first on the 15-inch model of MacBook Pro, and to be followed by the 17-inch version. With this, it is expected to implement eradication of the existing MacBook Pro designs. This is foreseen to be built around Intel’s forthcoming Ivy Bridge microarchitecture and mobile components.
With this year’s MacBook Pro revamp, the company will try to disrupt the notion that its products are more costly than those from rival PC makers. The newly redesigned MacBook Pros are expected to be released on April of this year. However, the prices of these products are still unknown because they’re still looking toward a $100 marketing subsidy from Intel to help drive prices down as much as 10% during the first quarter of 2012.
