From the Manufacturer
Presenting MacBook Pro, the most revolutionary notebook in Mac history.
Powered by Intel Core Duo
MacBook Pro is the first Mac notebook built upon the revolutionary new Intel Core Duo. It's actually two processors built into a single chip--which makes this by far the biggest leap in mobile Mac power you've ever seen.

Huge Performance Gains
Its 667 MHz frontside bus and DDR2 memory have four times the bandwidth of the PowerBook G4, and the MacBook Pro's 16-lane PCI Express graphics bus has eight times the bandwidth. MacBook Pro also incorporates an ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics processor with up to 256 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory--another leap in performance for high-end graphics and 3-D applications. The result? MacBook Pro offers up to four times the speed of the PowerBook G4 in key performance benchmarks.*
A full-scale iSight camera built at the top of the MacBook Pro's display means you're ready for video conferencing via iChat wherever you are--no cords or cameras to plug in or carry around.
Make the Connection
Despite the amazing 1-inch slim design, MacBook Pro offers a full complement of ports and connections. MacBook Pro even supports the new Express Card/34 standard for further expansion.
Have Brighter Ideas
Your eyes will light up when you see how MacBook Pro's display has lit up. This new-generation 15.4-inch display is 67 percent brighter than the previous model.
The new MagSafe Connector prevents the MacBook Pro from being pulled off your desk.
Mobile users will love the new power adapter featuring the MagSafe Connector--a magnetic DC plug that both ensures a tight connection and enables a clean break from the power port when there is undue tension. It prevents the MacBook Pro from being pulled off of a desk when the cord is accidentally tripped over, and it protects the power cord from wear and tear.
If you need to present to a group, or you'd like to just watch MacBook Pro from across your hotel room, you've got everything you need. With the Front Row interface and Apple Remote, you're free to sit or stand across the room and present photos, movies and music at the click of your remote.

* Testing conducted by Apple in December 2005 using preproduction MacBook Pro units with 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo; all other systems were shipping units. Performance up to four times faster than 15-inch PowerBook G4 based on estimated results of industry-standard SPECint and SPECfp rate tests. All of the MacBook Pro and PowerBook systems ran a beta Universal version of Cinebench. All other benchmarks were compiled using beta versions of Intel compilers for Mac OS X.
