Next-Gen MBPs to use OLED Apple logo

Though Apple did break many a fans heart this year with a mere refresh of it's MBPs, we have some questionable news that they just might make up for it next year =) 

Changes slated for the the MBP redesign include :
  • An angled design with a thinner body similar to current MBAs
  • Upgrade from Aluminum to a new alloy trade-named Liquid Metal 
  • Hi-res screen as standard (still no IPS)
  • Dedicated (16GB?) SSD for OS
  • 24-bit music playback capability.
this is a rumor
Something that most people seemed to have missed though, is the upgrade planned for the Apple logo on the display panel.

It's obvious that Apple would want to make most of the free advertising. The current logo is just a plastic translucent apple shape that glows of the light emitted of the led lighting for the TN display. That is why when Apple brought in auto-adjustment for display brightness, the logo had got it too.

The new logo is a neat OLED display on the display panel cover. This gives better aesthetics with the deep chrome color of the proposed Liquid Metal body. When the system is powered down the logo is completely invisible, but when you power it up it glows to life. Given that the casing is the new thinner casing, OLED would make a lot more sense.

The beauty is the way the logo glows up within the body. If you've seen similar OLED products on the market you should've got the idea - It's Beautiful ...

The source said that the new model would be released in the early 2012 refresh of the MacBook Pros.

@anony Actually lot of people do. Apple's business plan makes sure of that. Chack out the mac forums and you'll see what I mean.

You are writing this like this is a sure thing. What are your sources or is this just speculation?

Speculation, but going by the patents they've registered last month I'm pretty sure you will find it in the next major refresh when LiquidMetal is out.
