New MacBook Pro 15″ Specs Leaked? AMD Radeon, Thunderbolt, No SSD

The Apple Store is down, the new MacBook Pros are only a few hours away at this point, yet Mac4Ever is posting a photo of the specs of the new MacBook Pro 15-inch (although it's not specified whether it's a low-end or high-end model).

First off, no SSD. There's a 500 GB 5400 rpm hard drive in there. The photo also shows the following details:

- Intel Core i7, quad-core, 2Ghz


- Thunderbolt port as seen on the leaked MacBook Pro 13" photos

- AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphic processor

- FaceTime HD camera

- SuperDrive 8x

- SDXC, two USB ports, ForeWire 800

- 1440 x 900 screen resolution

Mac4Ever posted a series of leaked shots yesterday, later confirmed by multiple sources, so we're very confident this photo is real. We'll find out in a few hours anyway.

Update: and here come the MacBook Pro 17" specs, courtesy of MacRumors forums. Quad-core, Intel Core i7, 750 GB internal hard drive, SuperDrive 8x, AMD Radeon HD 6750M, Thunderbolt, 1920 x 1200 screen resolution.
