LaCie Is The First With A Thunderbolt-Equipped External Drive

The specs for the new MacBook Pro appear to have been leaked ahead of the release later today, but only slightly. The Apple Store went offline and details were emerging across blogs who have pulled the specs from German sources, one of those is UK gear blog ElectricPig and 9to5Mac.

However, the release has now come out for the new MacBook Pros which will come in three familiar sizes: 13-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch screens.

The 13-inch new MacBook Pro will have a Intel Core i5 and Core i7 dual-core processor and the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro models feature quad-core Core i7 processors.

The 13 inch starts at £999, the 15-inch at £1,549 and the 17-inch at £2,099.

The FaceTime Mac app came out before the new MacBook Pro. This has a FaceTime HD camera which is triple the resolution of previous generations and is built in to the new MacBook Pro.

Thunderbolt has now been confirmed – a new Intel-developed port for high speed data transfer of up to 10GBps.

The aluminum unibody enclosure remains, so no change to design.

Specs:

Processor and memory:
Chi2.0GHz or 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 6MB shared L3 cache; or optional 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache
4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1333MHz DDR3 memory; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 8GB

Storage:
500GB or 750GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard drive; optional 750GB 5400-rpm hard drive; 500GB 7200-rpm hard drive; or 128GB, 256GB or 512GB solid-state drive6

    not all that tempted if I’m honest.

      Yes, if not for running so low on hard drive space, I would not be so tempted. Seems more like an upgrade than revolutionary shift.

      That’s because you haven’t tried a solid-state hard drive yet.

    Glad to see the Hard Drive size has been increased! Only 4GB left on my 2-year old 300GB MacBook.

    I’m only using Facetime with my iPhone but with an HD cam for a Mac, that really convinced me to have one. And I really need a device with a great storage. That’s why I always use something effective like what I got here for Outlook, http://www.nomoredupes.com/, to give more space to my storage.

    Yes, the increased hard drive size was necessary but not exactly much improved.
