Apple sweetens the MacBook Pro (slightly)

Apple sweetens the MacBook Pro (slightly)

With this morning's announcement of the "budget" MacBook, Apple felt compelled to spruce up the specs for the higher-end MacBook Pro models. The $1,999 base model now features a 2GHz Intel Core Duo processor (up from 1.83GHz), and for $2,499 you get a 2.16GHz processor (up from 2GHz). Also added to all MacBook Pro models, including the 17-inch model, is an optional "glossy" display that, according to the Apple site, makes "graphics, photos, and videos appear with richer color and deeper blacks--great for watching DVD movies." While Dell and HP typically charge more for glossy displays, Apple throws it in free of charge (aside from the small, one-time convenience fee of $1,999 or $2,499).
