With all the hoopla around the recent iPad release, some folks may have missed another big event from today. Apple finally refreshed the MacBook Pro line-up, and the offerings are pretty decent.
The 13" models still have Core 2 Duo chips, but have newer graphics capabilities and a bit more battery power.
The 15" models get new Core i5 and i7 options for the processors, plus new graphics processors with auto-switching, a new, bigger battery with 8-9 hours run per charge, and the option for a new high resolution screen in both glossy or matte configurations. Options for up to 512GB SSD and 8GB RAM also.
The 17" model gets new i7 chips and graphics, plus bit larger battery, plus SSD and RAM options too.
These are all pretty decent upgrades, at least for the 15" & 17" models, and the prices did not go through the roof either.
Besides the direct link to the Apple site, here are some nice brief summary articles that help highlight things:
Definitely worth the wait for these, and worth checking out if you have not done so already.
