Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

A 2.2GHz or 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. Next-generation 802.11n wireless. Gorgeous upgraded displays. Wickedly fast NVIDIA graphics. Now available in 15- and 17-inch models starting at just £1299 (UK) / €1899 (Ireland) including VAT. Start your engines.

The latest and greatest
MacBook Pro is built on the revolutionary Intel Core 2 Duo — which packs the power of two processor cores (up to 2.4GHz) inside a single chip. It provides 4MB of Smart Cache, L2 cache that can be shared between the cores as needed. It delivers higher performance in 2D and 3D graphics, video editing and music encoding. But the faster engine is only part of the story. MacBook Pro delivers up to 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory with a faster, 800MHz frontside bus and support for hard drives up to 250GB. Ultimate speed, performance and connectivity. To go. That’s MacBook Pro.

Graphically speaking
Whether you’re creating 3D animation, editing photos from the day’s shoot or playing your favourite video game, MacBook Pro delivers serious processing power with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics controller.

Display’s the thing
A great video processor powers a great display. The new MacBook Pro is available in 15-inch models with a new mercury-free, power-efficient LED-backlit display and a 17-inch model with an optional 1920-by-1200 pixel display.

Packs power, not pounds
What makes MacBook Pro so mobile? Performance in a portable package. Only 2.59 cm (one inch) thin and weighing 2.45 kg (5.6 pounds) and 3.08 kg (6.8 pounds), respectively, the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models are among the thinnest, lightest notebooks in their display class.

Hit the road
Your life isn’t confined to an office, so why should your computer be? AirPort Extreme’s 802.11n Wi-Fi delivers up to two and a half times the performance and twice the range compared to the previous 802.11g standard1. No wires. No extra phone lines. Just you being freed from those four walls.
