Apparently the new macbooks are going to almost a hybrid of the macbook pro and the air. A thin sleek design with all the new technologies. Looks sick and supposedly it will have a quad-core.
This is a picture of the Air but you get the idea. Slash gear throws this info to us.
This summer we’re very likely going to see MacBook Air slimness on Apple’s line of heavier-duty MacBook Pro units, complete with Intel’s Ivy Bridge quad-core processors in-tact. This information is gleaned from no less than Intel themselves, with news coming through that April 29th will be the date that they’re ready to show the world what they’re made of in both the mobile and desktop world. CPU World lets us know that two separate and trustworthy sources have now confirmed that this date late in April will be the delivery time for for desktop portion of this equation, with quad-core models Core i7 and Core i7 Extreme families in the pipeline.
This news comes with the following part names attached inside the Core i7 family: desktop Core i7, Core i5-3570K, i5-3570T, i5-3550, i5-3550S, i5-3450 and i5-3450S. These systems on chips will be available in late April or early May and will find their way into devices such as MacBook Pros thereafter. New iMac machines have also been tipped for this timeframe, but no additional details are known on specifications of any kind.
Look for more info on this soon as we can see a release as soon as April 2012.
