Apple MacBook Pro Adopts the Attributes of MacBook Air
According to the reports of AppleInsider, Apple is adjusting the MacBook Pro product line, not only remove the optical drive, but also use flash memory instead of hard drive. Apple has always been on the cutting edge of innovation, the company aims by the end of this year to completely overhaul its MacBook Pros, giving the laptops a makeover by adopting some of the attributes of its ultra-thin MacBook Air machines.
It reported that Apple will change 15-inch MacBook Pro with these plans, subsequently extended to 17-inch MacBook Pro. This is equivalent to the introduction of 15 and 17-inch MacBook Air to replace the MacBook Pro product line. Many had hoped that the redesigned 15-inch notebook would debut by the end of 2011, but Apple apparently elected to squeeze in one final minor spec bump as it waited for Intel’s Ivy Bridge platform to launch in 2012. AppleInside now weighs in with its own claims essentially mirroring much of what was previously reported, but emphasizing that the shift will likely see a unification of Apple’s notebook lines under the MacBook Air design aesthetic, covering the full range of 11-inch to 17-inch sizes by the end of this year.
Apple’s MacBook Air will launch a large-size message is not the first time came. U.S. technology blog Macrumors and TUAW also revealed that Apple is developing a 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Air last July. TUAW was even claimed that a product will be launched in last year’s Christmas shopping season. China “Electronic Times also revealed that in last November, Apple has developed a 15-inch MacBook Air, and plans to launch in the first quarter of this year. AppleInsider said that these new products may eventually replace the existing MacBook Pro. As a result, Apple will only keep a notebook product line, just different sizes. This also led to the outside world, Apple will be on the CD-ROM support long questions – the company had been canceled in the MacBook Air and Mac Mini CD-ROM to promote the user through the Mac App Store and iTunes to buy the software and media files.
Apple has completed the MacBook Air product line adjustment in October 2010, the introduction of 13.3 inches and 11.6 inches two versions. Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, said at the time of these products for the future of the notebook. Last summer, the company also released an upgraded version of the MacBook Air, using a faster processor, and Thunderbolt interface. Since 2008 using a molding design, the appearance of the Apple MacBook Pro product line has been no drastic changes. Technology blog iLounge said that Apple plans a substantial change of the appearance of the product at the beginning of this year.
