New Macbook Pros Notes

  • I'm happily surprised by the new Thunderbolt port. As far as I can tell, it seems that Apple/Intel has made a PCIe connection into port, allowing for the super high speed data transfer. I wonder it a company will make an external graphics card?
  • Cherry Su pointed out that the new 13 inch MBP's have a downgraded Intel 3000 integrated graphics card. I don't know much about the 3000 series of Intel graphics, but I have a feeling that it's going to get much worse performance than the previous 13" MBP's (even with the i5/i7).  It would be interesting to perform a performance benchmark with a maxed out Macbook Air versus a 13" MBP.
