Apple unveiled its new line of MacBook Pro which is twice as fast as the previous generation, AMD Radeon HD graphics processors, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O technology and a new FaceTime® HD camera.
Thunderbolt, codename Light Peak, is a new high-speed PC connection technology that combines high-speed data transfer and a high-definition display on a single cable. Apple is the first to use Thunderbolt in the market. And this will probably replace USB 3.0.
