Is Apple testing ultra-thin MacBook Pro?

Since Apple released the MacBook Air, the company is expected to produce new ultra-thin designs.

Rumors of an ultra-thin laptop with a 15-inch screen came from an unnamed source cited by MacRumors.com.

The site reports that the testing phase will soon be completed in the laboratories in Cupertino.

“We aren’t certain if it will be called a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, but we do know that it is already in late testing stages at Apple,” MacRumors said in its report.

“Many now expect that Apple’s design choices in the Air will eventually make their way to the MacBook Pro product, with the use of integrated SSD and lack of optical drive being the most notable changes allowing for such a thin design. While we don’t know for a fact, we expect that any future ‘ultra thin’ laptop from Apple will also dispense with a built-in optical drive.”

The ultra-thin MacBook Pro is said to arrive in time for the holiday season.
