New MacBook Pro Specifications Leaked

Apple will be upgrading the new Macbook Pro models with faster processors, as well as more storage space than current models and the fastest Macbook Pro available is a 17-inch quad-core Intel i7 2.2Ghz model coming with 4GB of RAM and 750GB of RAM, but information acquired by 9to5Mac suggests that Apple are planning to boost this up to a quad-core Intel i7 2.4Ghz processor. The pleasing aspect of the forthcoming upgrades, is that it is likely that they will be available at the same prices of current models and it means that for the 13-inch models listed above, the prices should come in at $1199 and $1499, which is what you’ll see at the US Apple store at the moment. There is a slight chance of upgrade to graphics, even if just to video memory and you  can expect the updated version to arrive in early November…………………..

 

Apple’s MacBook Pro line is likely to receive an update in the following weeks and from the looks of it the new late 2011 models will represent a mild refresh that will offer consumers faster Intel processors and more storage. 9to5mac have all the details on the new notebooks and this looks to be a minor refresh with faster processors and more storage and the prices will be the same as the current model’s prices. In case you’re toying with the idea of buying a new MacBook Pro then you may want to wait a while longer for Apple to unveil these new babies and there’s still no official release date for the new refresh, there never is when it comes to Apple Store updates. There is no information on how the upgrades will affect the graphics on the Macbook Pro and Apple offer the Amd Radeon HD 6490M or 6750M graphics card for their 15-inch and 17-inch Macbook Pro models respectively, but fans will be eager to see the 13-inch models gain a decent graphics card and the infamously bad integrated Intel graphics that comes equipped on current models.
