New MacBook Pros to Run Operating System Off a 8-16GB SSD?

Apple's update to the MacBook Pro may bring a larger trackpad and an 8-16GB SSD that the operating system will run off, according to BGR.

We are told that the new laptops will contain glass trackpads that are even larger than the pads found on current-generation MacBook Pro models. The next bit of information doesn’t quite make sense to us, but we have been told the OS on the laptops will be loaded to a separate (internal) 8-16GB SSD while everything else will remain on the regular hard drive. There will be options for just SSD drives but the base models will feature regular hard disks with the SSD combo for the OS.

The report also states that the new notebooks will be half a pound lighter on average and be released within the next two weeks.

MacTrust has previously predicted that the notebooks will feature a better battery, be lighter, have an improved display, and offer a modular drive. MacRumors has confirmed with a source that the MacBook Pros will be released on Thursday, February 24th.

That is the lamest thing I have ever heard of. How in the apple planet could steve engineer a macbook pro with such a limited hard drive space. That is the same size I run on my HDSLR and I fill that up so fast. hahaha. Next time you come up with a rumor, make it a little more believable... It will go a long way for ya. lol 16GB... hahaha, what are they thinking???

Hey, u should read carefully before judging something/someone. They said that just the OS will be run on 16GB SSD, the rest will be on the regular hard drive. Apple just want to improve the performance for the Macbook Pro. Read it again dude, and don't compare it with your DSLR idiot...

Exactly. Jeremy, you'd better cool down and not jump to conclusions that fast. Read and learn first. And if not ABSOLUTELY certain ask first. Like "Is it true that MBPs will have only total 8-16 gigs of memory? Really? Am I missing the point here?"

Ok, my bad, guys... When I read a lot it kinda all jumbles together and I missed what it said there. I jumped to a conclusion that was unfounded. I am sorry.
