Apple MacBook Pro (17-inch, 2.4GHz) review: Apple MacBook Pro (17-inch, 2.4GHz)

The Good Updated CPUs and graphics without an updated price; LED-backlit display for better battery life; 802.11n support.

The Bad Minimal configuration options; only 90 days of complimentary technical support; still no media card reader.

The Bottom Line Apple's MacBook Pro line gets a solid under-the-hood upgrade for better performance and longer battery life, allowing the MacBook Pro to put enough distance between itself and the lower-end MacBook to justify its higher price

Apple's recent update of its 13-inch MacBook line was a modest one, with an incremental processor upgrade and updated default components. However, the 15 and 17-inch MacBook Pro laptops have gotten a much more radical overhauling, even if they -- like the MacBooks -- look the same on the outside as previous-generation models.

We have reviewed the 15-inch, 2.4GHz middle child in the MacBook family, which costs £1,599. The entry-level 15-inch, 2.2GHz model starts at £1,299 and the 17-inch, 2.4GHz model sells for £1,799. Click through to read our main review.
