The new version of the MacBook Pro will definitely support Lion. The Lion demos were all done on currently shipping hardware. It didn't appear that there were any earth-shattering new features that require additional horsepower than what's currently shipping. Apple may have something else up their sleeve, as they sometimes do, but thus far, it doesn't look as though Lion is going to increase hardware requirements.
OK, when you get the spinning pinwheel of death in Safari, try switching to another app, like Finder, using the keyboard (Command + Tab). Then try force quitting. I had this problem too & it was an issue with Flash. I use the Flash uninstaller, then reinstalled the latest version and everything has been OK since.
Very good point!
Apple hasn't made it clear, but they are trending that way...given that the only pro desktop display that they sell has recently gone 16:9.
I just noticed that Apple's only professional desktop display is now 16:9. The iMacs are 16:9. The notebooks have to be next. Apple hasn't updated the MacBook Air in forever, and the MacBook Pro is due for a refresh soon. I'm thinking this time around they will get the 16:9 treatment, especially in light of the fact that the LED Cinema Display has been geared towards MacBook Pro users. It's going to become more costly to stay 16:10.
It would be nice if the rez on the 13.3" got bumped while also getting an anti-glare option. The only thing I see holding Apple back from doing either is their eventual switch to 16:9 displays over the current 16:10 displays.
I see USB 3 coming on future Macs, but not a faster FireWire. I think FireWire will be left alone, then ultimately phased out for LightPeak. Although if LightPeak turns out to be a dud like MiniDisplay port, everyone will be using USB 3.0 anyway.
Interesting rumors. I definitely think the iPod Touch needs a camera. I see that happening. As for the MacBook Air becoming smaller, thinner, and lighter? Hmmm not so sure about that! I can see adding a better processor, adding the glass trackpad, perhaps switching the display to a 16:9 ratio, but that's about it.
I don't see apple doing a major overhaul here. Other than the obvious processor, hard drive, & graphics updates, i see them at best moving to a 16:9 display and multitouch trackpad. But that's about it.
I would say core i5 in the next go around. But suffice it to say I think the MacBook pro models out now will be with us until October.
