The Apple MacBookPro Laptop Computer is built on the revolutionary Intel Core 2 Duo which packs the power of two processor cores (in this case 2.4GHz) inside a single chip and provides 4MB of Smart Cache that can be shared between the cores as needed. Whether you're creating 3D animation, editing photos from the day's shoot, or playing your favorite video game, the MacBook Pro delivers serious processing power with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics controller. It also delivers up to 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory (comes with 2GB) with a faster, 800MHz frontside bus and support for hard drives up to 250GB. Amazingly enough, all this power comes in a package only one inch thick and a mere 6.8 pounds, making the MacBook Pro model among the thinnest, lightest notebook computers in its display class.
Looks are everything
The combination of a 16-lane PCI Express architecture and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor brings a new level of realism to MacBook Pro users. 16x full screen anti-aliasing, 128-bit High Dynamic Range rendering, and a texture fill rate of up to 8.2 billion per second provide unrivaled picture quality and lifelike contrast and tone for next-generation 3D animation and games. You'll see blacker blacks, whiter whites, and many more colors in between on a brilliant 17-inch, 1680-by-1050-pixel digital display. The Apple MacBook Pro graphics performance is up to 57% faster than the original Core Duo-based MacBook Pro.
MacBook Pro notebook is the ideal vehicle for viewing high-resolution Photoshop images or the latest HD Hollywood blockbusters. The optional 1920-by-1200 resolution on the 17-inch MacBook Pro offers a 30% increase in viewable area over the display. With more than half a million extra pixels at your disposal, you can view 1080 resolution HD video in all its glory--no need to resize the window to fit the screen.
The MacBook Pro offers an antiglare widescreen display that's perfect for color-minded professionals. For a more immersive viewing experience, you can configure the Apple MacBook Pro display with a glossy finish. This gives everything you see a richer, more saturated feel.
When you connect an Apple Cinema Display to MacBook Pro, you lose nothing in translation. That's because the DVI connection gives you a pure digital signal from system to display. View more than 4 million pixels on the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. You get three options for using your display: dual-display mode, video mirroring, and lid-closed mode.
