Apple to Release Radically Redesigned MacBook Pro This Year?

Apple is preparing to disrupt the notebook space with radically redesigned MacBook Pros, according to AppleInsider.

People familiar with Apple's roadmap say the Cupertino-based company currently plans to exit 2012 having completed a top-to-bottom revamp of its notebooks lineup that will see new MacBook Pros adopt the same design traits that have made its MacBook Airs an increasingly popular choice among mobile consumers.

The new design is said to feature an ultra-thin unibody enclosure that drops the optical disk drive and traditional hard drive and instead offer solid-state drives, instant-on capabilities, and extended battery life.

"They're all going to look like MacBook Airs," said one person familiar with the designs.

A redesign to the MacBook Pro has been reported by numerous sources over the past year including Macotakara, MacRumors, and iLounge.

I think it would not interest me to have a MacBook Pro without DVD drive. I currently have both, MacBook Air and a Pro, for exactly that reason. So Apple might be ahead of consumers... We all know Steve Jobs didnt give a damn, he in fact was their one and only consumer that matters, but I would do a little humble consumer research before such a daring decision, of merging the two lines, because basically that would mean discontinuing the Pro as we know it and launching.

So they are taking a functional laptop and making it less functional?

Oh... The omission of a soon-to-be obsolete storage media is "less functionality?". Wow, so, the 3.5" disk supporters that where bitching to Apple about that omission in the 90s have been resurrected in the form of CD/DVD supporters?
