[Music] ^M00:00:03 >>Hi, I'm Scott Stine, Senior Associate Editor at CNET.com and this is the new MacBook Pro 13 inch that just got announced in early 2010. Now we've see the MacBook Pro 15 inch and we've seen the Core I5 and I7 processors make their way into Apple's very popular slim aluminum laptops, but we have not seen that move in the 13 inch and the reason seems to be twofold; battery life and also integrated graphics that are included in here in video G-force 320M which is a big upgrade over the 9400M processor that was in the previous 2008 and 2009 13 inch MacBook Pro. So you're getting in the low end, at 2.4 gigahertz Core 2 Duo, and at 2.6 gigahertz Core 2 Duo in the second model for 1199 and 1499 respectively, the Ram's been bumped up to 4 gig in the base model, so you have 4 gig in both and you get a 250 gig hard drive in the one and a 320 in the other. In addition, like I said, you get a 10 hour of reported battery life. Now we tested here and found that there was a significant increase in the battery life, even compared to last year's 2009 MacBook Pro 13 inch which had an integrated battery that was, had a better battery life than the previous one. So you're seeing larger gains in battery life year after year, which is great. And as far as the graphics, you're going to be able to play most main stream games on it with a processor like that, although it's not a gaming laptop, it's certainly great to have that. The resolution still remains 1280 by 800 and the, you know a lot of the design and look is pretty much the same as we've seen before; the slim aluminum chassis, the unibody is still the same, the large multi touch track pad, although now you can do an iPhone and iPad like momentum type scrolling, that inertial scrolling that allows you to scroll through documents, you know kind of slide them through. Who knows, that might be an update in other MacBooks as well. You have a backlit keyboard and you know if you've been following Apple MacBooks, you know about all that. And one more thing; and this is a small thing, but it could be big if you watch Hoodoo or videos on a TV screen connected to it, you may know that it's a little bit difficult with MacBook Pro's. In the past you have to connect a mini display port adapter to HDMI and you also have to plug in an audio cable in addition through the 3.5 millimeter jack so it's a little bit of a jerry rigged process. Well now HDMI, audio and video can be outputted directly through mini-display port; bottom line you can buy a mini display port HDMI cable, which costs about 30 40 bucks most of the time and then output that to your TV so you've got it all in one cable. The Mag Safe connector on the new models is actually a streamlined side connecting one which jets out a little bit less, plugs in right into the side, it's the ones we've seen on the MacBook Air, the advantage here is that it won't be jetting out as much, and it actually won't pull out as much because its pulling off to the side as opposed to sticking straight out when it can become easily disconnected. Bottom line, it's a nice upgrade, it's not as dramatic as the 15 and 17 inch MacBook Pro's, but for the battery life gains and for the increased graphics, it's certainly better than what we had before at the same price. I'm Scott Stine and this is the new 13 inch MacBook Pro from [inaudible] 2010. [Music] ^M00:03:06
