    There are rumblings of the Mac Book Pro and the Mac Book Air lines merging in the near future. However, the MBP is the only real option for anyone who wants a reasonable amount of hard disk space. When high capacity SSDs become available at a reasonable price then things will change.

    As there is very little REAL difference between the 13" models, I think the MBP 13" is redundant. I will continue to think that until they add a decent video card to the 13" MBP. The Intel cards just don't cut it. Airs to 13". MBP's starting at 15".
    Signatures? We don't need no stinkin' signatures!

    I think, or I heard I should say, that the Mac Air 15" will be taking that spot over...

    My opinion and my mileage may vary of course.. But, I did read that, not sure
    if 100% true or not though..

    Apple MacBook Pro MD313LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop (NEWEST VERSION)




    2.4 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 Processor

    4GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM

    500 GB Hard Drive, 8x DVD/CD SuperDrive

    13.3-Inch LED-backlit Display, 1280-by-800 Resolution, Intel HD Graphics 3000

    Mac OS X v10.7 Lion, 7 Hour Battery Life

    Introducing the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The state-of-the-art dual-core Intel i5 processor delivers up to 2x faster performance (over the previous generation of MacBook Pro). New Thunderbolt technology lets you connect high-performance peripherals and high-resolution displays to a single port, and transfer files at lightning speeds. And with the built-in FaceTime HD camera, you can make astonishingly crisp HD video calls.






    The 13.3-inch unibody MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt technology (see larger image).
    With the revolutionary Thunderbolt technology, you’ll be able to achieve bi-directional channels with transfer speeds to peripherals like external hard drives and servers up to an amazing 10 Gbps–while also connecting to a DisplayPort-compatible high-resolution display.

    As with previous models, the MacBook Pro features a precision unibody enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum, creating a thin and light mobile computing workhorse (less than 1 inch thin and just 4.5 pounds) that’s also highly durable. And it includes a 13.3-inch, LED-backlit glass display as well as a glass trackpad that doesn’t include a button (for larger tracking area) that features Apple’s Multi-Touch technology. You’ll also get up to 7 hours of battery life while on the go.

    This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro (model MD313LL/A) features a second-generation 2.4 GHz Core i5 dual-core processor, 500 GB hard drive, and 4 GB of installed RAM. Other features include integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics, ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth connectivity, an SDXC card slot, two USB 2.0 ports, and a FireWire 800 port (see full specifications below).





    FaceTime HD camera built into the bezel for crisp, widescreen video chats (see larger image).






    The backlit keyboard–great for typing in low-light settings (see larger image).

    OS X Lion

    Every Mac comes with OS X Lion, the latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. With over 250 features including Multi-Touch gestures, Mission Control, full-screen apps, and Launchpad, OS X Lion takes the Mac further than ever.






    Mission Control provides a bird’s-eye view of everything running on your Mac.

    Launchpad puts all your apps front and center for easy access.

    View apps full screen and switch between them with a swipe.

    Interact with your Mac using intuitive new Multi-Touch gestures.



    Key Features

    Revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology

    Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, high-speed Thunderbolt I/O (input/output) technology delivers an amazing 10 gigabits per second of transfer speeds in both directions. Built into the MacBook Pro, the Thunderbolt port allows you to connect to new Thunderbolt-compatible peripherals as well as existing USB and FireWire peripherals using simple adapters. You’ll be able to move data up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, and you can daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub.

    And because Thunderbolt is based on DisplayPort technology, you’ll be able to connect to a high-resolution display from the same port. Any Mini DisplayPort display plugs right into the Thunderbolt port, and you can also connect displays that use DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, or VGA connections with an existing adapter. You’ll also be able to include your display into a daisy-chained set of peripherals.





    Next-Generation Dual-Core Intel Processor

    This MacBook Pro is powered by a second-generation Intel Core i5 dual-core processor, which provides breakthrough digital media management, content creation, and 3D gaming capabilities. With updated Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the latest Core i5 increases speed automatically for whatever you’re doing, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload.

    Intel’s Hyper-Threading Technology enables each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking. And you’ll enjoy a rich set of new features for a stunning and seamless visual experience with no additional hardware. The Core i5 processor also provides faster access to the installed RAM, with an integrated memory controller to connect fast 1333 MHz memory directly to the processor.

    With new microarchitecture, the graphics processor resides on the same chip as the central processor and has direct access to the 3 MB of shared L3 cache–helping your applications run at peak performance. And an integrated video encoder enables HD video calls with FaceTime, while an efficient decoder gives you long battery life when you’re watching DVDs or iTunes movies.

    Buttonless Multi-Touch Trackpad

    With no button on the glass trackpad, there’s more room to track and click–left, right, center, and everywhere in between. Without a separate button, the trackpad gives your hands plenty of room to move on the large, silky glass surface. It also incorporates Multi-Touch gestures–including swipe, pinch, rotate, and four-finger swipe. And it also now supports inertial scrolling, an intuitive way to scroll through large photo libraries, lengthy documents and long web sites.










    Key Specs


    13.3-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display with edge-to-edge, uninterrupted glass (1280 x 800-pixel resolution).

    At the heart of every MacBook Pro–and every Mac–is OS X Lion, an operating system that’s both easy to use and incredibly powerful. It’s built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation and engineered to take full advantage of the technologies in every new Mac. So everything works together perfectly. And features like Multi-Touch gestures and Mission Control let you interact with your computer in amazing and intuitive new ways.

    I cannot see Apple making the 13" redundant there is more chance of the 17" going first, the two most popular sizes are the 13" and 15" so I think you are worrying over nothing to be honest.
