|2011 MacBook Pro: 13, 15, and 17-inch Models|
Apple has already announced earlier today new additions to the MacBook Pro family, including the 13, 15, and 17-inch models, all powered by Intel 2nd Generation Core-i series CPU’s based on Sandy Bridge architecture. This new iteration of MacBook Pro’s refreshes the previous generation with focus on speed and performance, as it also brings improved and optimized graphics, the high-speed I/O technology called Thunderbolt, higher storage capacities, and the new FaceTime HD camera.
Still, the standard builds of the Pro lineup are evident including the gorgeous aluminum unibody enclosure, the glass Multi-Touch trackpad, LED-backlit widescreen display, illuminated full-size keyboard and the battery rated to offer 7-hours of continuous wireless web surfing.
Connectivity options in all of the new MacBook Pro’s are identical except for the 17-inch model which has an added ExpressCard/34 slot for an eSATA adapter or a 3G wireless card, an excellent feature for times when no Wi-Fi network is available in a location. For your DVD-burning pleasure, the new MacBook Pro’s feature an 8X SuperDrive which can burn movies and other files in no time.
