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.

More hot Apple rumors can be found in our Apple News Hub including rumors of the iPhone 5, iPhone nano/budget and iPad 2.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
