It's hardly a matter of "if" -- it's simply a matter of "when." Now that Intel's Haswell CPU has found its way into the MacBook Air line, it's a given that Apple engineers are actively looking for ways to cram that very silicon into the rest of its laptop range. If a newly uncovered Geekbench report is to be believed, it looks as if the 15-inch MacBook Pro could be next in line.

The report (pictured in full after the break) details a machine packing a 2.4GHz Core i7-4950HQ and 16GB of RAM, and while there's no discrete GPU shown, Primate Labs' John Poole has informed MacRumors that the benchmark may have simply missed it during testing. At any rate, the score itself isn't anything to write home about -- it's pretty much in line with the existing generation of MBPs -- but the real magic is apt to reside in the eventual battery life claims. If the next-generation Pro follows the Air, we'll see similar performance and nearly twice the longevity. Mission accomplished.
