The new MacBook Pro sets all-new benchmarks for Mac notebooks. This
17-inch MacBook Pro features an Intel Core i5 processor and
next-generation NVIDIA graphics that bring high performance to
everything from 3D games to photos and videos. Additionally, the MacBook
Pro comes standard with automatic graphics switching that provides
performance when you need it and energy efficiency when you
don't--helping the built-in battery last up to 8-9 hours.
The 17-inch unibody MacBook Pro.
with previous models, the new MacBook Pro features a precision unibody
enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum, creating a thin and
light mobile computing workhorse (less than 1 inch thin and just 6.6
pounds) that's also highly durable. And it includes a 17-inch,
LED-backlit glass display as well as a glass trackpad that doesn't
include a button (for larger tracking area) that features Apple's
This version of the 17-inch MacBook Pro
(model MC024LL/A) features a 2.53 GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 500 GB
hard drive, and 4 GB of installed RAM. Other features include integrated
Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth connectivity, an SD card slot,
and two USB 2.0 ports. It also comes with the Mac OS X Snow Leopard operating system
as well as the iLife software suite, which includes the latest versions
of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand.
Automatic Graphics Switching
MacBook Pro offers excellent graphics flexibility with two video
processors--the discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M processor (with 256 MB
of GDDR3 video memory) for heavier workloads and an integrated Intel HD
Graphics processor for better battery life on the go. When gaming or
using processor-intensive applications like Aperture or Final Cut Pro,
you'll appreciate the power of the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M, which brings
more realistic game environments and virtual worlds playing at high
resolutions and fluid frame rates. And the automatic graphics switching
feature determines which graphics processor an application needs and
switches instantly between the processors.
The backlit keyboard--great for typing in low-light settings.
Intel Core i5 Processing Power
first level in Intel's latest processor family, the dual-core Core i5
provides a fast, responsive computing experience for your everyday tasks
as well as image management in iPhoto, video editing in iMovie, and
enjoying your entire music and HD video collection in iTunes.
Intel's Turbo Boost technology, the Core i5 automatically speeds up
your processor when it needs extra performance--making it a great match
to processor-intensive applications like Aperture 3 or Final Cut Pro.
And Intel's Hyper-Threading Technology enables each core of your
processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the
performance you need for smart multitasking.
Buttonless Multi-Touch Trackpad
no button on the glass trackpad, there's more room to track and
click--left, right, center, and everywhere in between. Without a
separate button, the trackpad gives your hands plenty of room to move on
the large, silky glass surface. It also incorporates Multi-Touch
gestures--including swipe, pinch, rotate, and four-finger swipe. And it
also now supports inertial scrolling, an intuitive way to scroll through
large photo libraries, lengthy documents and long web sites.
