MacBook Pro Gains Faster CPU Option

Send Article to a Friend

Unmentioned during Apple’s media event last week was the fact that the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models have gained a faster CPU option, a 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7. In both cases, the 2.8 GHz CPU comes at a $200 premium over the 2.66 GHz chip, formerly the high end. Previous CPU configurations remain available.

There’s little more to say here, other than to note that if you’re buying a MacBook Pro because you want more performance than is available from the MacBook, MacBook Air, or 13-inch MacBook Pro, it might be worth ponying up a few hundred extra dollars to make sure you have the fastest available processor.

No mention? Just another indication that Apple is ignoring the Mac in favor of toys.

Apple Inc., the next great American TOY company. Watch out Mattel. Sheesh, how far will they fall under Steve? Probably not much, as America seems to be addicted to entertainment and eye-candy toys.

You missed the introduction of new MacBook Airs, including the smallest (coolest) Mac Apple has ever made? Lion preview? Free ponies?

This is the funniest comment I've seen on TidBITS in a long time. I hope that if I ever found a company, it will "fall" a fraction as much as Apple. "Toys," right.
