New MacBook Pro Specs: Impressive, Ha-Per, Most Impressive

The famous words of my guy, Darth Vader, are perfect when describing the new MacBook Pro specs.  Once again Apple amazes me with another product.  I still don’t whip Apple computers myself, but it doesn’t mean that I’m not envious of Mac users.  I’m just so familiar with PCs it’s hard for me to make the plunge, plus the one negative about Apple’s Mac line is the extremely high prices.

The new MacBook Pro line will boast Intel’s Core i5 and i7 chips, which will boost your CPU speeds and overall performance.  The graphics chip will be NVIDIA’s GeForce GT 330M, which will deliver true HD visuals at 1680 x 1050 pixels on the 15″ and 17″ models.  Although these new chips do some fancy things I think their main purpose is energy efficiency.

The most awesome addition to these new Macbooks is the battery life.  The smaller models are said to get close to 10 hours of battery life, with the larger models boasting 8-9 hours on battery.  That is just absolutely amazing!  Leave it to Apple to figure out the long standing battery dilemma with portable computing.  My VAIO only gets 2 hours on battery, so it’s more or less plugged in all the time.  I want 8 hours too Sony!

Another success in technology for Apple.  Just look how pretty it is.  Yes gadgets can physically look good to some.  It’s quite the sexy looking device, just like most of Apple’s wares.  If you’re wondering, I don’t make out with gadgets, well at least not in public.

You’ve been enlightened…
