The Macbook Pro has been slimmed down slightly, no coming in at 0.95 inches thick, but is now slightly heavier at 5.5 lbs. The Macbook Pro has a new internal structured, rumoured to be called "brick", that includes room for NVIDIA's 9400M GPU + chipset and a supplemental 9600M GPU. There are three Macbook Pro options available: 1) 15.4" LED, 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB DDR3 RAM, bot GPUs for $1999, 2) same as option 1, but upgrades to 4 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard drive for $2499, and 3) a 17" LCD with a 2.6 GHz CPU starting at $2799. See details for information about the 2009 update to this model.
Updated in early 2009 at MacWorld, the 17" model was updated to a unibody build. The standard build now includes: 17" LED-backlit 1920x1200 LCD, 320GB 5400RPM SATA drive, and 4GB of DDR3. Excitingly, the build remains at the $2799 price point - and while the battery is now non-removable, it is rated for an amazing 7-8 hours depending on which GPU is in use.
