Well it makes some sense but they would have to discontinue the Air and place the MacBook with the Air design in it's place since the Air has been rendered redundant with it's similar specs and now similar design; additionally there is still some usage for the MacBook Pro's additional features, no matter how Apple's perspective may seem. It would make more sense to transition the design to the MacBook instead of the MacBook Pro.
In any case, I'm expecting new MacBook Pro to hit the streets since the ones out there are old and regardless of redesign or not, they do need an upgrade.

While no one will ever confuse me as being an Apple fanboy, I can agree that the optical drive is living on borrowed time. Nearly every device comes with either USB ports, or flash card readers; the capacity of which can far exceed that of a standard DVD. Plus most computers are capable of booting from a USB drive, so it's possible to reinstall the OS now without using a disk.
News: In a nutshell, it sounds like the new MacBook Pros will essentially be souped-up MacBook Airs.
Apple has to do this. Intel is already at the front door with the Ultrabook, and AMD is about to come knocking at their back door with the Ultrathin. The perfect storm of slim Whateverbooks is brewing, and it's going to get really interesting. I'm glad that my wife and I are getting a lot of overtime at work because I'll soon be in the market to buy!

Apple is feeling the pressure? hahaha competition makes you think and create faster.Well, Apple is at least trying to redesign and not staying with it old design over and over again.
I see this as the power of the machines goes down and the price goes up to an even bigger premium because of their ultra portability. I am thinking AMD's ultrathins are going to kick their butt on pricing and the power will be equal.
Yup, the APU is coming home to roost, and it's going to be ugly for Intel and Apple.
