Apple updates MacBook Pro firmware

Firmware update allows its newest MacBook Pro notebooks to use drives with speeds greater than 1.5Gbps.

Apple has released an update for its newest MacBook Pro notebooks introduced at its Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this month.

According to notes provided with Monday's MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.7, it allows drives to use transfer speeds greater than 1.5Gbps. Specifically, these drives are based on the SATA 3Gbps specification.

Apple does note that use of these drives is completely unsupported. The company has not qualified any of the drives for use and does not offer any of the drives itself.

The update and instructions for applying it are available from Apple's support Web site.
