BGR: New MacBooks will have bigger Trackpad, OS on SSD, half pound lighter

Some interesting MacBook Pro possibilities coming out of BGR this afternoon.  Here are the Cliff’s notes:

  1. The trackpads will be bigger than before.  Looking down at my MacBook Pro, I’m not sure that’s possible, but it couldn’t hurt – unless it accidentally triggers from my wrists.  Apple, I’m sure, has thought of this.
  2. OS on SSD.  This is the big one.  BGR says that Pros will ship with integrated SSDs which house the OS. The idea is that the OS and maybe the Apps are on a speedy, relatively small SSD.  The user’s media is on a cheaper, larger HDD.  Love it.
  3. Finally, they will weigh less…an average of a half pound per model.  We’re not sure how (liquid metal?) but we’re all for it.
