Fruity cargo cult Apple has just upgraded its MacBooks.
The MacBook, which still has one of the worst keyboards since the Imperial 66 typewriter, has been released with a nice new CPU and graphics chips for basic models.
Now the 13-inch MacBook Pro comes with either a 2.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor or a 2.8 GHZ dual-core Intel Core i7. This is an improvement on what has been under the bonnet so far. Hard drives have also been increased in size with 500GB appearing on the i5 model with the 750GB hard drives turning up on the i7.
Similarly, the 15-inch MacBook Pro has upgraded its basic model’s processor to a quad-core 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7. You now have the option of upgrading to a 2.4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7. The basic model of the 17-inch MacBook Pro comes with the 2.4 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 as its default processor.
The basic 15-inch MacBook Pro has a more powerful AMD Radeon HD 6750M discrete graphics card with 512MB of GDDR5. The faster 15-inch version will ship with an AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB of GDDR5. Currently the 6770M is seen as standard with the 17-inch model.
You’ll be able to pick up the MacBook Pro for $1,199 for the basic 13-inch model, or $2,499 for the 17-inch model.
Apple has not looked at how terrible its keyboards are, and has instead moved into touch screens which are even harder to type on.
