There are several interesting reports that suggest that the new MacBook Pro 2012 will be built with Liquidmetal. Reports also suggest that Macbook Pro and MacBook Air may be combined
MacBook Pro 2012 seems to be very close. Its release date hasn’t been made clear by Cupertino based technology major Apple, nonetheless there is every reason to believe that its launch is not very far off.
There are rumors that suggest that Apple is planning to combine MacBook Air with the increased power of MacBook Pro. This will bring out a revolutionary product that will be portable, but will come with increased power.
Now there are several other interesting rumors that when combined, bring out the whole truth. A report while detailing the new material with which the forthcoming MacBooks will probably be manufactured with says that lightweight Liquidmetal is more solid, though it is lighter and scratch-resistant than the existing aluminum unibody.
Meanwhile a report while detailing as to what Liquidmetal is says, “Liquidmetal’s revolutionary class of patented alloys form the basis of high performance materials utilized in a broad range of military, medical, luxury, consumer, industrial, and sporting goods products. By working with Liquidmetal, the design of your product will be of the most innovative design and possess superior performance. Our amorphous metal alloys will enhance your product design while redefining the strength paradigm simultaneously”.
The Cupertino based tech giant Apple is reported to have an exclusive agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies to use the material since 2010. But so far its usage has remained negligible and the only thing Apple has produced with this material is a SIM ejection tool. As per rumors, the rear panel of the upcoming iPhone 5 is to be solidified with the Liquidmetal. In the meantime another report in a leading Apple blog suggests that the forthcoming MacBook Pro will come loaded with Intel’s third generation Ivy Bridge chips and USB 3.0 ports. The first thing is almost predictable and it is expected that MacBook Pro will be the first device to hit stores with the Ivy Bridge microprocessor, which Intel has officially announced a few days back. But we need to wait a bit more to allow things to become clearer regarding speculations about Lequidmetal.
