MacBook Pro gets revamp, a bit cheaper?

By on

There you have it, the MacBook Pro has gotten an update (along with its sister product, the MacBook). A brand new, sleek design; has the same bezel display design as the iMac and it now ditches the click button in favour of touch-pad gestures, introduced in the MacBook Air.

Along with the changes, it comes with a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics card with 256MB or 512MB, depending on the version. As well, it will come in either 2GB or 4GB of DDR3 RAM. It will also use the DisplayPort connector to connect to a monitor, but you can get an adapter for it to use it with DVI and VGA monitors. As usual, it comes with the usual iSight camera and a MagSafe adapter.

There will be two models, the 15″ and the 17″; with the 15″ having to options, the 2.4GHz model with 250GB of space, 2GB of RAM and the 256MB graphics card, or the 2.53GHz model with 320GB of space, 4GB of RAM and 512MB graphics card. The 17″ will be the previous model, but just having an upgrade.

The 15″ inch models cost at AU$3,199 or $3,999; while the 17″ will set you back AU$4,499.
