Apple have today surprised us all … OK not all of us, but anyway, have updated their MacBook Pro lines spec wise now with some pretty nice offerings for the same price, lets have a look!
The 13 inch Macbook Pro saw a pretty cool spec update.
The machine remains a purely Dual Core system but now supporting i5 standard with i7 on the top range model. The MacBook Pro now features the Intel HD Graphics 3000, 4GB DDR3 of RAM standard with 500GB standard on the base model and 750GB on the second.
You can now configure the 13 inch MacBook Pro up to 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 (dual), 8GB DDR3 RAM, 750GB is the max HDD, but you can add up to 512GB of SSD if you want to spend alot.
All 13 inch models come with the Intel HD Graphics 3000 and 7 hours of battery!
15 inch and 17 inch
The 15 and 17 inch models have an interesting update in the fact that Intel’s Quad Core i7 is now standard across the board, with 2.2GHz on the base 15 inch, and 2.4GHz on the others standard.
The base 15 inch model also features a dedicated AMD Radeon HD 6750M featuring 512MB of dedicated graphics or to save on power you can use the Intel HD Graphics 3000. 4GB DDR3 RAM standard across the board again.
Graphics go up a notch on the top 15 inch and the 17 inch using the new AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB dedicated graphics, and again you can optionally use the Intel HD Graphics 3000 to save on some power.
The 15 and 17 inch model can be configured up to 2.5GHz Intel Core i7 (quad), 8GB DDR3 RAM, 750GB HDD with 5200RPM or 7200RPM for an extra £40, and same SSD options at the 13. And the overpriced display options.
