Apple updates MacBook Pro lineup: faster Intel & graphics processors

Guest Apple updates MacBook Pro lineup

Apple has subtly updated the MacBook Pro lineup ahead of the release of Intel's next-generation Ivy Bridge processors expected in Spring 2012.


Keeping the MacBook Pro's competitive with their PC counterparts, Apple has upgraded processors to Intel Core i7 across the board, bar the base-spec 13-inch model, which features a still-respectable Intel Core i5 processor.


All models still sport 4GB RAM but hard drive capacities have increased to either 500GB or 750GB, both @ 5,400 RPM (optional 750GB 7,200 RPM, and of course still SSD options if you can stomach the cost!).


The 15" and 17" also benefit from upgraded graphics cards, namely the AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 6770M with 512MB and 1GB of GDDR5 memory respectively.


You can check out the specs and order the new MacBook Pro's right now and they're in stock already!

Not very much of an update, just a slightly faster processor and GPU (at least concerning the 17" one).

Not even a 750GB 7,200 RPM HDD by default (but at least now you can choose one).

The model that gets the most advantages of this update is the basic 15" one, which is now competitive with quality PC notebooks, IMHO.
