The 2.4 GHz MacBook models ship with 2GB of memory standard, expandable up to 4GB across the line.


    $1099. Macbook 13" 2.1GHz / 1GB / 120GB / Combo / White
    $1299. Macbook 13" 2.4GHz / 2GB / 160GB / Super / White
    $1499. Macbook 13" 2.4GHz / 2GB / 250GB / Super / Black

    and what i love the most

    MacBook Pro includes the latest NVIDIA graphics processors, now with up to 512MB of video memory, and Apple's innovative Multi-Touch(TM) trackpad, first introduced in MacBook Air(TM).

    The new MacBook Pro features the latest Intel Core 2 Duo technology with
    up to a 2.6 GHz processor with 6MB of shared L2 cache; up to 4GB of 667 MHz
    DDR2 SDRAM memory and up to a 300GB hard drive, plus NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
    graphics with up to 512MB of video memory.

    $1999. Macbook Pro 15" 2.4GHz / 2GB / 200GB 5400RPM / 256MB Vram
    $2499. Macbook Pro 15" 2.5GHz / 2GB / 250GB 5400RPM / 512MB Vram
    $2799. Macbook Pro 17" 2.5GHz / 2GB / 250GB 5400RPM / 512MB Vram


    thinking about getting the 2.5 15".

    I was looking though two questions i have to pay for the remote $19CDN its not included anymore? it was included when i first bought my first 2.16 C2D. Also both 15 and 17" are LED Screens correct?

    I know alot of people have been waiting. Im pretty sure im gonna pull the trigger, but the nehalem architechure stuff has kinda been making me want to wait, also with a potential aesthetic change and maybe blu-ray, the next update may be not just a "bump". :hs:

    I'm impressed, they released an update that doesn't really make me feel like the MBP I bought in December '06 is fading into obsolescence.

    I wonder how long before someone swaps the multitouch pad into an older mbp.

    Should have waited for June and put the 3GHz chips in them. Lame release.

    it basically bumped the old mid-range MBP down to the low end option, which is exactly what I wanted

    I noticed the 17" high-res screen option is now LED backlit. Is that brand new or have they been that way for awhile now?

    I am thinking about upgrading. I currently have an older 15" macbook pro but I need the extra horsepower with the cpu and gpu for DJing.

    Upgrades seem like a solid and standard upgrade. more speed, a few nice additions.

    not really. this was exactly what I was waiting for.

    I'm not one of those people who upgrades everytime there's a new laptop.
    I've been waiting for what I want to happen and it did.

    price range is in the sweet spot, graphics card is exactly what I need, multitouchpad = awesome.

    new chip that won't overheat = epic.

    and then when I get it, I don't have to worry about them taking forever when I send my powerbook in to get fixed.

    I was really torn between the 128 vs 256.

    now that 256 is low end, I'm set :wiggle:

    it is, but when you are running dual displays like me, its only 128mb per display, still enough i think , but i wonder how it would perform with 256 per display or 512 even?:wiggle:
