MacBook Pro Review from www.apple.com
MacBook Pro is meticulously designed for maximum performance in a minimum size. Bare minimum, in fact. It's 5.4 pounds of unparalleled portable power in only one inch. Encased in sleek and sturdy aluminum, MacBook Pro is just as ingenious on the outside.
MacBook Pro features an advanced trackpad with amazing Multi-Touch technology. You can flip through photos, enlarge text, and adjust an image using just your fingers. And your hands have room to spread out on the full-size keyboard with crisp, responsive keys. MacBook Pro has a built-in ambient light sensor that adjusts the keyboard and display brightness so it’s easy to work in low-light settings such as airplanes and conference rooms.
The new Intel Core 2 Duo processors run at speeds up to 2.6GHz on a groundbreaking 45-nm process technology with up to 6MB L2 cache. Which means you can encode video, render effects, and open and manipulate large images that much faster.
MacBook Pro ships with Mac OS X Leopard, which brings you Time Machine — the built-in application that automatically backs up files to an external drive. With Time Capsule, Apple’s revolutionary new back up device and server-grade hard drive, you can back up everything wirelessly through Time Machine. So you’ll never have to worry about losing your digital files and hours of work.
The Intel Core 2 Duo uses Intel’s groundbreaking 45-nanometer process — resulting in transistors so small, you could fit a hundred inside a single human cell. With smaller distances for electrons to travel, and two execution cores designed to share resources and conserve power, the Intel Core 2 Duo achieves higher levels of performance without using more power. This is what helps make MacBook Pro just one inch thin.
