Apple upgrades MacBook Pro line with faster processors, graphics cards, and more storage

New, 329 comments

Without the usual fanfare of taking its online Store down, Apple has made some gentle upgrades to its MacBook Pro laptop lineup. The entry level 13-inch MBP now starts off at a speed of 2.4GHz and packs 500GB of storage, while the 15-inch model tops out at a 2.5GHz Core i7 CPU and sees graphics upgrades across the board. The 17-inch MacBook Pro also makes the jump from AMD's Radeon HD 6750M to the HD 6770M, while its base processor changes from a 2.2GHz to a 2.4GHz Core i7 chip. Prices, as is Apple's habit, remain unchanged. A move to Bluetooth 4.0 had been expected to feature among these upgrades -- to match the latest MacBook Air and the iPhone 4S -- however the MBP line is sticking to v2.1, marking this out as mostly a CPU and GPU refresh.
