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.
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.
