At WWDC today, Apple announced major updates to the Macbook Air and Macbook Pro lines.  The Macbook Air in 11″ or 13″ screen sizes has up to 2Ghz dual core i7 Ivy Bridge processors, two USB 3.0 and can get 512gb of flash storage.

There may be a little confusion with the upgrades to the Macbook Pro line.  There are still the laptops that are similar to the last model, but the new model is the Macbook Pro with Retina display.  This new form factor available in a 15″ screen size is much thinner than the predecessor, with a 2880 x 1800 resolution, and up to 2.7ghz quad core i7.  Not only that, you can get 768gb of flash storage built in.   There are two USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt ports, and even HDMI.  If you are a video editor however that heavily relies on Firewire, beware, there is no Firewire 800 port, you may have to resort to the model without the Retina display if it is that important to you.

Update: According to the Verge, Apple will offer a Thunderbolt to Firewire 800 adapter along with a Thunderbolt to Gigabit ethernet port adapter, because there is no ethernet port on the Macbook Pro with Retina display.
