Strength. Lightness. Beauty. Seamlessly Integrated: The MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminum, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It's called the unibody and the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro, you'll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined yet feels strong and durable, which makes it perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack
A Display Full of Bright Ideas: Everything Apple designers and engineers do, they do for a reason. They chose LED backlight technology for the MacBook Pro because it makes the display instantly bright and allows it to be incredibly thin. They use edge-to-edge glass not just because it looks beautiful, but because it lends structure to the display. At the top of the screen, they hid the built-in FaceTime HD Camera so you can see your friends and family in beautiful widescreen and as little of the camera as possible. The camera is even thinner than the one found inside the iPhone 4
Multi-Touch Trackpad -- It Just Feels Right: The Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there's more room to track and more room to click left, right, center and everywhere in between. Apple designers and engineers spent countless hours considering things like sensitivity (how much pressure triggers a click?), audio feedback (what does the click sound like?) and friction over the smooth glass surface (what does it feel like?). The result is a trackpad that just makes sense to you...and your fingers
Magnetic Latch: Because the magnetic latch has no moving parts to snag, jam, or break, even opening and closing your MacBook Pro is a pleasure
Easy Access to Connections and Ports: The connections and ports on the MacBook Pro, such as the MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB, SDXC card reader and audio in/out, are all smartly integrated on the same side of thenotebook. So your cables stay neatly organized while connecting and disconnecting your devices is easy and convenient
MagSafe Power Adapter: The power cord is held in place magnetically, so if someone should happen to trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely
ThunderBolt Port: Thunderbolt lets you connect high-performance devices and high-resolution displays to a single, compact port. It even supports Mini DisplayPort devices, such as your Apple LED Cinema Display or an HDMI adapter for your television
Designed to Make an Impact -- Just Not on the Environment: Complete control over how the MacBook Pro is designed, how it's manufactured and how it's packaged gives Apple an environmental edge. LED backlight technology preserves energy. Glass and aluminum are highly recyclable. The MacBook Pro is free of most harmful toxins and it is shipped in packaging smaller than its predecessor. That means fewer trees used for boxes and fewer planes, trains and trucks used for transport
Next-Generation Quad-Core Intel Processor: The 15.4" MacBook Pro now features a 2.5GHz Intel Core i7 processor. With Turbo Boost technology, this CPU allows the computer to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation
The Graphics Performance You Need, When You Need It: The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor is now included across the MacBook Pro lineup and handles the things you do every day. It encodes video quickly and makes HD video calls with FaceTime possible. It also decodes efficiently so you get long playback time for DVDs and iTunes movies
For graphics-intensive applications, the MacBook Pro automatically switches to the high-performance AMD Radeon HD 6770M graphics card with 1GB of discrete memory. With up to 2x the performance of the previous generation, it lets you see more frames per second in 3D games and allows you to work on HD video projects with more speed and responsiveness
Introducing Thunderbolt: Imagine accessing multiple streams of uncompressed HD video from your notebook at speeds that let you edit an HD feature film in real time. That's how Thunderbolt technology will connect the next generation of high-performance peripherals to the next generation of computers...and it all starts with the MacBook Pro. Ultrafast and ultraflexible, the Thunderbolt pipeline is up to 12 times faster thanFireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0. It offers unprecedented expansion capabilities. It changes what you can do on a notebook.
The Thunderbolt port will give you plug-and-play performance with a whole new world of Thunderbolt peripherals as well as with the Apple LED Cinema Display and other Mini DisplayPort peripherals. You can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display. And with support for video and eight-channel audio, it's easy to connect HDMI-compatible devices, such as your TV and home stereo, using the HDMI adapter you already have. Current VGA, DVI and DisplayPort adapters are also supported
FaceTime HD Camera -- The Difference is Clear: Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera gives you three times the resolution of the previous camera, which is perfect for the brilliant LED-backlit display, along with improved low-light performance. You can make 720p HD calls from your MacBook Pro to any Mac with a FaceTime HD camera. You can also make video calls to iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch and other Intel-based Mac computers
Multi-Touch Trackpad -- Be More Hands-On: The Multi-Touch trackpad is the most natural way to interact with what's on your screen and the smooth glass surface gives you plenty of room for gestures. Pinch to zoom in and out, swipe to flip through photos, rotate to adjust an image, and much more. The buttonless design lets you click anywhere. And if you're coming from a right-click world, you can right-click with two fingers or configure a right-click area on the trackpad. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you'll wonder how you ever did without it
A Long-Lasting Battery -- Charge Less, Do More: The MacBook Pro delivers amazing battery life even with more powerful processors and faster graphics. An energy-efficient processor architecture with an integrated video encoder help improve battery life. So you can expect to surf the web wirelessly for up to 7 hours on a single charge. Take your entire creative studio on the road for live performances or a location shoot. Advanced chemistry and Adaptive Charging give you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles, which is nearly three times the lifespan of typicalnotebook batteries. And because the MacBook Pro battery lasts up to five years, MacBook Pro uses just one battery in the same time a typical notebook uses three. That's better for you and for the environment.
Apple is using a new, more rigorous battery test that measures the results you can expect in the real world, such as surfing your favorite sites in a coffee shop or catching up on the latest web videos. Even using this new test, MacBook Pro delivers amazing battery life...for your real life
It's Very Well Connected: When you're out and about, the latest 802.11n wireless technology in the MacBook Pro makes it easy to get connected just about anywhere. The MacBook Pro automatically finds available networks and allows you to join them with a click. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in so you can use your favorite wireless accessories right out of the box
Ports With Possibility: With the new Thunderbolt port, you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display, to create a full-fledged workstation. 2 USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port let you connect your iPad, iPod, iPhone, digital cameras and external hard drives. The SDXC card slot on the MacBook Pro models supports up to 64GB cards and makes it a snap to transfer all those photos to and from your MacBook Pro, so you can edit and share them on the spot
Burn DVDs Superfast: After using iMovie and iDVD to edit and apply the finishing touches to your home movie, use the 8x SuperDrive on the MacBook Pro to burn it to DVD in no time. Since the SuperDrive writes to double-layer discs (DVDs with nearly 9GB of space), it's a great way to back up data as well
