We would love to believe most of the rumors that we see about the new 2012 MacBook Pro, although many of these claims contradict each other, so only a small selection will be the real deal among hundreds of rumors. One such rumor to make its way to popular tech blogs within the last 48 hours focuses on the specs for Apple’s new MacBook Pro, and features a label showing the exact details although this label is causing a lot of debate over its authenticity.
Taking a look at the possible technical specs for a 2012 MacBook Pro — the labels source points to a number of important features, some obvious and others shocking for some users wanting to upgrade. The label shows an Intel Core i7 at 2.6GHZ quad-core, built-in FaceTime HD camera, Intel HD 4000 graphics and AMD Radeon HD 7770M graphics with GDDR5 memory at 2GB, a 15.5-inch LED backlit screen with a 2560×1600 resolution, 750GB hard drive, and 16GB of DDR3 SDRAM.
These are the main specs but you can see the full label below, which is missing a few key features that some of us were expecting (SSD), and also lacks an optical drive, something that will not make certain users happy.
So what do you think of these unconfirmed specs for the new MacBook Pro? The 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM is pretty impressive, although we don’t see any mention of SSD or Retina display. WWDC 2012 is only a few days away now so it won’t be long before we find out the facts, and if that $3000 price tag is on the money. If the price matrix we heard about the other day is real as well then we could be seeing a massive launch of products from Apple, which would also include an iMac, MacBook Air, and Mac Pro.
