Apple News - new laptops

overview-laptop.png

If you noticed your local Apple store was closed today, that was your first clue. Tuesday is the magic day for Apple to dazzle us with new products and upgrades, and make us want to spend money.

After the introduction of the Mac Book Air, today's news was pretty anti-climactic. The MacBook and MacBook Pro lines sport new Intel Penryn chips (faster processor speeds ), a bigger hard drive, and more memory; and the Pros feature the multi-touch the MacBook Air has been bragging about.

Here are the specs you need to know:

MacBook Pro models feature the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors (running at up to 2.6GHz with 6MB of shared L2 cache), larger hard drives (up to 300GB), and 2GB of memory standard in most models. They also include the latest NVIDIA graphics processors — with up to 512MB of video memory — and an innovative Multi-Touch trackpad, first introduced in MacBook Air. \

If you have a MacBook, like me, you're going to wish you'd held out for this latest upgrade.

The three new models of the MacBook feature faster processors and hard drives: sleek white 2.1 GHz and 2.4 GHz models with 120GB or 160GB 5400 rpm hard drives and a stunning black 2.4 GHz model with a massive 250GB 5400 rpm hard drive. The 2.4 GHz MacBook ships with 2GB of memory standard, expandable up to 4GB across the line.

MacBook still starts at $1,099, the Pro will cost you $1,999 for the basic model.
