Apple's next-generation MacBook Pro computers are around the corner, with the company planning a Spring-Summer launch of new products. The new MacBook Pro models are said to use the latest generation of processors, chipsets, graphics, and an interesting storage solution. On all models, the MacBook Pro will feature an 8~16 GB internal SSD to boot from, and store the operating system. The rest of the storage will be handled by the hard drive. This ensures that at least the OS and vital OS programs will be snappy, benefiting from the SSD. Users can also opt for an all-SSD configuration, in which the data storage will be handled by a larger SSD. The next generation MacBook Pro will also feature a larger trackpad that gives users surface area nearly on par with iPhone 4 for multi-touch UI gestures.
