The iSight’ camera has now been renamed to Facetime HD’, with the HD moniker hopefully meaning that Facetime will soon support 720p or higher resolutions for video chatting. One new feature which the 13MacBook Pro will get is the Thunderbolt’ I/O port, which in all probability is Apple’s implementation of Intel’s Light Peak port.

Intel’s Light Peak port is capable of connecting to multiple devices and provide a staggering bandwidth of up to 10Gbps. The Thunderbolt I/O’ port should make its way to other higher spec’d MacBook Pros as well.
