The 13-inch base model which is originally powered by a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor boost up in clock speed from 2.3 GHz to 2.4GHz. It also now packed a more spacious 500GB HDD compared to the previous model which was just 320GB.
The other 13-inch variant with a dual-core Intel Core i7 processor ticking at 2.7GHz also boost to 2.8GHz, with the storage increased from 500GB to 750GB.
The 15-inch base model doesn’t have a change in storage, yet it got a faster quad-core Intel Core i7 processor – this time clocking at 2.2 GHz compared to the previous one which was just at 2.0GHz. The discreet graphics card was also doubled, now with 512MB GDDR5.
The other 15-inch model which originally has 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor has been upgraded to 2.4GHz. The storage also remains unchanged, but Apple decided to replace its discreet graphics card – this time with a new 1GB AMD Radeon HD 6770M GPU (the previous one was 6750M).
The 17-inch model specs also bumped; just the same quad-core Intel Core i7 processor but now with 2.4 GHz clock speed, and the same discreet graphics card as the one used in the higher-end 15-inch model.
And the good thing with all of these upgrades, Apple didn’t make any changes of each price. It still starts at Php 61,990 for the 13-inch base configuration, up to Php 126,990 for the 17-inch model. Of course you still can configure your own MacBook Pro if you wish to.
The new MacBook Pro’s, aka, the “late-2011” MacBooks are already available for purchase at Apple Store.
