MacBook Pros Updated
11:29 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Apple recently announced upgrades to their line of Macbook Pro laptops. The expected speed bump is in place, with the new computers now sporting Intel Santa Rosa chipsets that offer 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz speeds. By using the new chips, MacBook Pros now have an 800MHz front-side bus as well as support for up to 4GB of RAM. 2GB of RAM come standard with the new MacBook Pros as well.

Perhaps more interesting is the inclusion of a battery-saving LED screen with the 15" model, a feature that Apple has been promising in the effort to become more environmentally friendly. In addition, the current crop of MBPs sport NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GTs rather than ATI offerings. The 15" 2.2GHz MBP's GeForce comes with 128MB GDDR3, while the 15" 2.4GHz and the 17" both come with 256MB GDDR3. Apple claims that the new graphics hardware increases performance by over 50% when compared against the original 2.16GHz MBP Core Duo, citing tests with both Doom 3 and Quake 4.

The baseline 15" retails at $1,999. The 15" 2.4GHz goes for $2,499, while the top-of-the-line 17" 2.4GHz goes for $2,799. All models are currently shipping.
