As reported the new 2011 Apple MacBook Pro laptops are expected to be unveiled this week. I have my bets on Tuesday, but other rumors point to Thursday. The new MacBook Pro laptops will be based on Intel Sandy Bridge and possibly are ultra-thin.

CNET has renewed yesterday a rumor that Apple is close to unveil an Intel Light Peak port. If the Light Peak port is already part of the new MacBook Pro is not confirmed by the CNET source.

Intel's Light Peak port goes back to 2009. The Light Peak connection is much faster than USB 3.0 and basically Apple could leap frog USB 3.0 with Light Peak ports.

The Light Peak port is delivering 10Gb/s transfer speeds in both directions that could even reach 100Gb/s at some point. To put it into perspective: At 10Gb/s, you could transfer a full-length Blu-Ray movie in less than 30 seconds.

We reported already last November that Apple will skip USB 3.0 in favor of Light Peak or however Apple will call the new high-speed port.
