Apple to Launch Newly Designed MacBook Pro in April?

Apple may be planning to launch an all new MacBook Pro in April alongside an update to Final Cut Pro, according to Three Guys and a Podcast.

The new design is thought to follow in the footsteps of the 2010 MacBook Air.

The new MacBook Pros will move to solid state storage, up to 512GB, remove the optical drive, and we believe light-peak is being pushed to make it's first-ever entrance into the market, another Apple exclusive.

In the same manner that the MacBook air did not replace the traditional 13" MacBook Pro, Apple is likely to leave one legacy 15" design in the lineup for those not yet comfortable with Apple's new direction. The traditional model is likely to slot into the $1,799 position with upgrade options available, while the new MacBook Pros will start at $1,999 and scale up according to configuration.

The site also believes Apple will unveil the iPad 2 in January.

Hang onto your hats — we already have word of yet one more special event to close out 2010 but Apple’s already plotting to delight and surprise with another update to its MacBook Pro range and that there long-awaited move to ship a new blend of Final Cut Studio — and we only need to wait till April (some say).
Roll over to those Three-Guys-And-A-Podcast people for this news, and while they say they wouldn’t like to bet their lives on it they’re giving up the following on this, the night before Thanksgiving:

January 2011: New iPad
April 2011: All New Mac Book Pros + Final Cut Pro Update

Recall when AAPL said MacBook Air was the future of the notebook? Well, looks like Apple’s ready to head that way — if the three guys (who wouldn’t, lets remember, bet their own lives on it) are sagacious in their seer-ing….

“We don’t believe this will be a simple refresh of the MacBook Pro, rather, Apple will deliver an all-out redesign, the big brother of the MacBook air,” they say. The year of the Mac?

April is when NAB takes place. There’s been recent talk that video expertise was directed elsewhere (anyone say ‘AirPlay‘?) Now it is back. And Final Cut is gonna be a 64-bit (guess) video asset-crunching machine set for a new age of (3DTV? Just another guess).

iPad 2 production in full-force Q1 2011, parts begin shipping in December

According to a report from Digitimes the production of Apple’s second-generation iPad will go into full-force in Q1 of 2011 for an early 2011 product launch. Apple has already secured three iPad 2 parts suppliers, Ibiden, Tripod Technology and TTM Technologies, and will be adding four more suppliers in February. The report notes that the three named suppliers have received final certification from Apple and will begin shipping limited quantities of any-layer HDI boards next month.

Apple’s next-generation iPad is rumored to gain a front-facing camera for FaceTime video calling, faster chips, more RAM, a mini-USB port, as well as a ‘Smart Bezel’ feature. Apple has even already shot their ads for the next-generation iPad and our report on this indicated that the iPad 2 will feature a form-factor that is similar to the current generation product.

John Gruber on Apple's Pricing Advantage

John Gruber from Daring Fireball examines Apple's pricing advantage with the iPad and why this is not the case with Macs vs. PCs.

PCs, especially historically, were compared based on technical specs. An awful lot of PCs have been sold to people who never even looked at the enclosure — only the specs. That’s not how the game is played in consumer electronics. Nobody knows what kind of CPU they have in their phones. (Where by “nobody”, I mean “no regular people”.) Apple doesn’t even publish CPU specs for iOS devices, nor publish how much RAM they contain.

With computers, again, it’s fair to say that the typical Mac costs more than the typical Windows PC. That’s not true for mobile devices, which means Apple gets to compete mostly on factors like design, user experience, and branding. In short, the nascent mobile computing market has much more in common with the traditional consumer electronics market than it does with the PC industry, and that works very much in Apple’s favor.

iPhone 5 to Feature NFC Capabilities for Remote Computing?

Apple's next iPhone may feature Near Field Communication technology for remote computing, according to a CultofMac source.

The idea is that if you wave your NFC equipped iPhone at an NFC Mac, the computer will load all your applications, settings, and data. This will let you work at the computer as if it was your own. Then when you move out of range the machine will return to its previous state.

Here's how CultofMac's source describes it:

"The Mac authenticates with the iPhone, which contains a lot of the information the computer needs, such as bookmarks, passwords and other data," said our source, who asked to remain anonymous. "The system would essentially turn any Apple computer into your own — like you’re actually working on your own computer. Same settings, look, bookmarks, preferences. It would all be invisible. Your iPhone would be all you needed to unlock your Mac."

"Address book would show their contacts, and the user would have full access to their information in the same manner they would if they were working from home. This same behavior extends to even showing the same desktop picture, mouse and keyboard settings, and would eventually extend to software licenses and passwords for websites such as Facebook."

"When a person walks away with their iPhone and away from the communication link with the Mac, the original settings of the Mac would be restored. All communications and storage of passwords stays on the user’s iPhone, leaving nothing stored on the computer. This functionality is extended to access a user’s home folder, which will be stored and accessed either through storage on MobileMe or by using the Back to My Mac feature to connect to the user’s home folder."

Apple recently hired NFC expert Benjamin Vigier as Product Manager of Mobile Commerce.
