    AppleInsider has allegedly confirmed previous rumours that a 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro is on its way to hit the stores very soon. Claiming own sources, AppleInsider has been able to confirm that tomorrow Apple will introduce a 17-inch MacBook Pro with a fixed internal battery and a new version of the Mac mini. Before going into detail, let me remind you that Macworld 2009 Conference & Expo starts today, so if true the two new Apples will make first appearance there. The new unibody 17-inch MacBook Pro will not share the same panel-covered battery layout as the 13- and 15-inch models. Instead, the notebook's battery will be fixed in place and not removable, similar to the MacBook Air notebooks. As for Mac mini, the new version will add a FireWire 800 port and a fifth USB port, in addition to the already presented Mini DisplayPort and Mini DVI connectors.

    I was very much hoping Apple would release an ultra macbook with 12" screen and thinner bezel so that they would have something suitable for travelling. The regular (new) macbook is just a bit too big and too heavy.

    Great to hear Firewire is back on the Mac mini. It would be a 100% top dollar product if they had cinch connectors on the back with a quality audio output. That way it would be the perfect media server and hi-fi accessory.
