Apple’s Thunderbolt connector has shown up in a supposed leaked pic of the new MacBook Pro, which we could see as early as tomorrow. While it looks just like a Mini DisplayPort connector, it could actually be Intel’s Light Peak behind the lightning bolt icon.
Now Light Peak, which has been around for a couple of years, was designed as a replacement for USB, FireWire and other ports (like the SCSI, SATA and PCI Express), but as you can plainly see in the photo above, the lightning bolt icon is shown alongside two USBs, FireWire and ethernet.
So what’s going on? Either Apple’s using Light Peak for different purposes, or this photo is fake. I guess all shall be revealed tomorrow if the rumours are correct – but do tell us what you think, below. [@charavel via SlashGear]
