MacBook Pro Now Up To 2.4 Ghz

by Juan on June 5th, 2007

The rumors were right. Apple just announced an update to the MacBook Pro. The updated models now sport a faster 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. This chip is the Sta. Rosa, featuring an 800 Mhz front side bus. It’s also capable of up to 4GB of PC2-5300 (667 Mhz) DDR2 memory.

Another notable thing is that the 15″ models now come with the new LED-Backlit displays. These are more efficient, environmentally friendly and mercury free displays. The LED-Backlit displays are also instantly bright when you turn it on as opposed to the common LCD displays that need some time to go to the full brightness settings when turned on.

Apple has also improved the graphics card on the MacBook Pros. It now sports 128 and 256 versions of the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. It’s certainly a step up from the previous graphics card.

2GB Ram also comes standard across the board for all the MacBook Pros.

What do I think of the upgrades? Well they’re certainly enticing. If you’re thinking of an upgrade to a MacBook Pro and you’re coming from a PowerPC Powerbook or iBook, it’s definitely a great upgrade even if you’re coming from the original Core Duo MacBook Pro.

I think the LED-Backlit displays are awesome. The standard 2GB Ram too. It’s a good way of differentiating it from the MacBook line-up. The lines are getting clearer between the two sets of notebooks.
