I’m sitting here writing this on my shiny new MacBook Pro which arrived earlier this week! The MBP is the evolution of the former PowerBooks (may they RIP!) now updated with hyper-fast Intel duel core processors with the same cutting edge industrial design to match.
So what sets this apart from the competition:
15.4-inch widescreen display
2GHz Intel Core Duo processor
2GB (667MHz) DDR2 RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics processor with 256MB memory
Dual-link DVI output
Optical digital and analog audio I/O, built-in microphone and stereo speakers
Slot-loading DVR-RW Drive
Illuminated keyboard, Scrolling TrackPad
Built-in wireless (802.11g), Bluetooth, and Gigabit Ethernet
Built-in iSight webcam
Mac OS X Tiger with iLife ’06 and FrontRow + remote
MagSafe Power Adapter
I really don’t know of any other laptops which pack so much into such a small and stylish package. How many computers do you know which could handle playing HD videos, encoding a DVD, surfing the web and IM’ing all at the same time? The MBP really is an amazing bit of kit, if not a bit on the expensive side!!
