Apple Thunderbolt promises 10GBs claims alleged Apple MacBook Pro leak

Apple Thunderbolt promises 10GBs claims alleged Apple MacBook Pro leak

We're counting down the hours until Apple announces the new MacBook Pro range sometime later on today - at time of writing the store is still up, which suggests there may still be some time to go - but another shot of the new notebooks' packaging with some Apple Thunderbolt tidbits has leaked. Theo Levy managed to snap what looks like another section of Apple's online promotional material, seemingly from the same source as the side-profile MacBook Pro 15 leak yesterday, seemingly confirming the sort of speeds users can expect.

"A new type of I/O that transfers data at up to 10 GBs per second" the Apple copy supposedly reads, "Every new MacBook Pro ships with Thunderbolt so your [sic] ready to go, out of the box." The spelling error does give us pause, however - all this would be mighty easy to fake, after all - though it does fit in with what we know of the technical capabilities of Light Peak.

Dear Apple, here’s what I want from the new Thunderbolt Display

Dear Apple, here’s what I want from the new Thunderbolt Display

The Apple Thunderbolt Display is long overdue a makeover. Revealed in July 2011, the 27-inch monitor has watched generations of MacBook come and go - and, until this year at least, the Mac Pro stagnate with no compatibility whatsoever - and, despite the iMac aesthetic it originally echoed being significantly upgraded last October, still languishes with its original design. Sometimes, with Apple, you have to be patient. The company has, for the most part, a yearly refresh cycle, but the Thunderbolt Display is (in tech terms) old. Still, that arguably just gives Apple the chance to do something particularly special with the new Thunderbolt Display - so here's my wish list.
