Additional Sketchy 15" MacBook Pro Specs from Chinese Forum Post

Earlier today, a Chinese forum post on Weiphone claimed to have the specs for the new 13" MacBook Pro revision. Disappointingly, the changes were minor with no evidence of a new design or the use of any high resolution Retina display.

The original poster has since edited his post with additional claims for the 15" MacBook Pro update. The specs listed include:
New Macbook Pro 15 inch:
i7 2820 2.3GHZ/2x2GB/500GB
i7 2860 2.5GHZ/2x4GB/750GB
Custom 2.7GHZ/2x4GB/1TB
Card is NV GT650M 1G
What's questionable about these specs is that the processors listed are previous generation Intel processors and not the new Ivy Bridge ones that we have been expecting. While representing a slight upgrade to the existing 15" MacBook Pro models, it's hard to believe that Apple would use last year's processors in their upgrade.

Why is this even being reported? I'm trying to do work and when I see these teases in my twitter from MR- it throws off my productivity!

Surely they ARE worth reporting because this last one casts doubt on the accuracy of the first, given that they are both from the same source.

Pretty much sums it up there.

Oh I get it now.. This is a "leak" from Apple intended to figure out who are the employees leaking information by identifying which nonsense information came from which source. Pretty clever. I think that's what Cook was referring to when talking about "doubling down on leaks". Goodbye employee #87213!

Oh boy. Be wrong, please. The upside is that these actually DO sound weird. And raises my hopes for Retina Macs once again, since the source is the same...

That'd be nice if it was a GT 650m

But in all fairness, don't read into this. Sandy Bridge CPUs?
