Apple has ever so quietly rolled out an update that gives its MacBook Pro line a nice boost.
The tech world might be buzzing about the release of Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs biography, but Apple is carrying on, business as usual. The Cupertino-based company kicked the last week of October off with improved specs for the MacBook Pro laptops, upgrading the processors and graphics for its slightly bulkier line.
Starting today, shoppers looking to pick up a new MacBook Pro can opt for a 13-inch model with a 2.4GHz Core i5 or a 2.8GHz Core i7 dual-core processor, instead of the previous 2.3GHz and 2.7GHz, and a bump in HDD capacity for the entry-level model, which will now come with 500GB of space. The 15-inch model doesn't see any change to storage space, but the laptop does get a processor upgrade, increasing from 2.0GHz and 2.2GHz Core i7 CPUs to 2.2GHz or 2.4GHz i7s. New 15-inchers will also either an AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU with 512MB on GDDR5 memory, compared to the 256MB 6490M, or a 1GB GDDR5 Radeon HD 6770M, as opposed to a 1GB GDDR5 6750M. Those shelling out big bucks for the massive 17-inch MacBook Pro will also see some changes. Again, the graphics are going from a 1GB 6770M, up from a 6750M, and the CPU is going up to a 2.4GHz i7 version from a 2.2GHz i7.
