New MacBook Pro Gets Tiny Speed Bump

Send Article to a Friend

Almost lost among all of Apple's other recent announcements was the tiny speed bump for the 15-inch MacBook Pro. Previously available in three configurations - Intel Core 2 Duo processors running at 2.4 GHz, 2.53 GHz, and 2.8 GHz - the MacBook Pro now replaces the top two options with 2.66 GHz and 2.93 GHz processors. Prices and all other specifications remain the same.

Well, that's it. Nothing more to see here, move along.
