MOSR Reports Of An Ultra-Thin, Ultra-Portable, 12-Inch Apple Macbook Pro

I love reading keywords such as speed king, ultra-portable, ultra-thin, and 12-inch Macbook Pro – they just sound so sweet when read out loud. I'll be more than happy to give up my Macbook Pro for a slimmer 12-inch version any day. Mac OS Rumors expect the long list of features below to be pretty much on the money, thanks to recons from trusted resources in Cupertino and Southeast Asia.

  • "Macbook Thin" — spec-wise, primarily a variant of the Pro family but will probably be branded as separate from the standard *or* Pro MacBook families. Shipping name is unconfirmed.
  • 12-inch widescreen display, 1280x800 resolution.
  • 2.16 or 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors
  • 1GB of DDR2-667 memory standard. Max. capacity 3GB.
  • Standard "Pro" ports: USB2, Firewire 400 & 800, Gigabit Ethernet, Digital/Analog Audio minijack I/O ports.
  • ExpressCard expansion slot (believed to be /34 type)
  • Similar storage to "Pro": 2.5in SATA HDDs at 120GB & up, 'Combo' or 'Super' optical drive.
  • ATi Radeon Mobility X1600 or nVIDIA GeForce GO 7600 graphics systems with 256MB of VRAM.
  • Mini-DVI display connector with full second display capabilities
  • Of course, Built-in iSight, stereo microphone, Airport Extreme and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.
  • Battery life is expected to be "best in class" at about 6.5 hours real-world, some reports have suggested up to 8 hours is possible.

The specs sure looks yummy to me. What do you think? Would you be willing to bet the farm on this info?
