[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Brian Tong here with CNET.com in Macworld 2009. We are here with the new 17-inch MacBook Pro. Now what's the big thing about this is its battery. What is done is its battery has an 8-hour charge. You can do the cycle a thousand times and really what that means is it has three times the juice of regular batteries and it last for approximately 5 years. Other things about this machine is it does have the matte finish option, so if you guys like that, for 50 more bucks, you can do that. You'll have all the center ports you're used to seeing on a MacBook Pro 17-inch. You have the USB, the gigabit Ethernet. You also get the backlit keyboard. Now this machine will come in at a 2.66 Intel Core 2 Duo Processor. It will retail for $2,799 and be available in late January. For CNET.com, I'm Brain Tong. ^M00:00:45 [ Music ]
