Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Power takes shape.

MacBook Pro is meticulously designed for maximum performance in a minimum size. Bare minimum, in fact. It’s 2.45 kg (5.4 pounds) of unparalleled portable power in only one inch. Encased in sleek and sturdy aluminium, MacBook Pro is just as ingenious on the outside.

Spectacular display.

MacBook Pro makes your ideas even more brilliant with a sharp, high-resolution screen. Choose the 15.4-inch, 1440-by-900-pixel or the 17-inch, 1680-by-1050-pixel digital display, with glossy and anti-glare options. Or choose the new, optional high-resolution 17-inch LED backlit model for the optimal viewing experience. The 15-inch and 17-inch LED backlit displays are lighter, more power efficient and they deliver full screen brightness the instant you turn them on. Both LED backlit displays are mercury-free — and the 17-inch high resolution display is also arsenic-free — so they’re better for the environment.

Smart touch.

MacBook Pro features an advanced trackpad with amazing Multi-Touch technology. You can flip through photos, enlarge text and adjust an image using just your fingers. And your hands have room to spread out on the full-size keyboard with crisp, responsive keys. MacBook Pro has a built-in ambient light sensor that adjusts the keyboard and display brightness so it’s easy to work in low-light settings such as airplanes and conference rooms.

Multi-Touch meets MacBook Pro.

Multi-Touch technology from iPhone, iPod touch and MacBook Air comes to MacBook Pro in an amazing new Multi-Touch trackpad. Now you can pinch, swipe or rotate to enlarge text, advance through photos or adjust an image.

Room for more.

MacBook Pro has a standard hard drive up to 250GB and up to 4GB of RAM. So there’s more room for even bigger ideas.

Power duo.

The new Intel Core 2 Duo processors run at speeds up to 2.6GHz on a groundbreaking 45-nm process technology with up to 6MB L2 cache. And the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor now includes up to 512MB of video memory.

Ins and outs.

Connect storage, multimedia devices and high-speed peripherals to your MacBook Pro. Along the sides, you’ll find a FireWire 400 port, a FireWire 800 port, a DVI port, optical audio in and out ports, and an ExpressCard slot. There are three USB 2.0 ports on the 17-inch MacBook Pro and two on the 15-inch models.

Supersized display.

Connect an Apple Cinema Display to expand your desktop and lose nothing in translation. That’s because the DVI connection gives you a pure digital signal from system to display. View more than 4 million pixels on a 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display, powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor.

Even the power cord is a feature.

The MacBook Pro power adaptor with MagSafe connector is a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So, if you happen to trip over the power cord, you won’t send MacBook Pro flying. The cord simply disconnects, without damage to either the cord or the notebook.

Sounds all around.

MacBook Pro sounds as good as it looks, with unprecedented attention to audio detail. For musicians on the go, MacBook Pro offers pristine sound through crisp, clear stereo speakers, a built-in microphone, and optical digital audio on both input and output.

Built-in iSight.

Strategically placed in the centre of the MacBook Pro display bezel is a small but powerful iSight camera. Wherever you go, you can video conference with iChat, make a movie with iMovie and experiment in Photo Booth.
