Quick review of New Macbook Pros
Apple recently pulled the wraps off its new range of Macbook Pro laptops that now come with upgraded processors, high-speed Thunderbolt technology and a new FaceTime HD camera.
Though the new Macbook Pros retain the same design on the outside, they now come with the latest dual-core and quad-core Intel Sandy Bridge processors.
The new 13in Macbook Pro will feature an option of Intel Core i5 and Core i7 dual-core processors that have speeds of up to 2.7GHz and Intel HD Graphics 3000.
Both the 15in and 17in models now come equipped with quad-core Core i7 processors and feature AMD Radeon HD graphics processors.
The new Macbook Pros are also the first to include the new Thunderbolt port, which is a new high performance input/output technology that is said to offer transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps with Thunderbolt-enabled devices.
The speed is fast enough to transfer a full-length HD movie of 10-20GB in size in less than 30 seconds, Apple said.
Another major update to the Macbook Pro is the new FaceTime HD camera that will support full HD video calling over Apple's FaceTime application.
The new Macbook Pros are already listed as available on the local Apple Store.
