    Re: New MBPs with Core i7 processors?

    As it turns out, it is true. http://gizmodo.com/5515928/ Checked out the apple website. They have updated the Macbook Pro specs already too there.

    So disappointed to see that the 13" don't get the new Core iX processors. Who still sells Core2Duo's these days? Even Asus and MSI are all bringing out Core i processors and really cheap too.

    At long last! Apple finally refreshed the Macbook Pro line up. It's good to see that they've upgraded the graphics chip. :)

    Re: New MBPs with Core i7 processors?

    Yey! Finally! Been waiting for ages!

    Just came from the Apple store and I have to say that I'm quite disappointed with their upgrade. I thought they would at least put in a much more powerful Core 2010 processor than other brands as well as a better GC or HDD. It feels like they just upgraded the line just for the sake of keeping up instead of leading the way.

    Re: New MBPs with Core i7 processors?

    even though that the 13inch Pro still not on the core i processors, I'm still tempted bcoz of the 10hrs battery life and new GC and 2.4Ghz, only the hard drive that makes me feel a lil bit sad. :(

    Core, at last! Of course, it hasn't trickled down in price yet so it's waiting time for me. Can anyone say how much faster Core i5 is versus Core 2 Duo of the same GHz?

    Apple updated MacBook Pro Line with faster processors, powerful next-gen NVIDIA graphics and longer battery life.
    15-inch and 17-inch macbook pro models feature Intel core i5 and i7 processors.
    New 15-inch and 17-inch macbook pro models are up to 50 percent faster than the previous systems.
    Suggested retail price for 2.4 ghz, 13-inch macbook pro is $1,199.
