Key Features:

  • 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 15.4-inch (diagonal), 1440 by 900 resolution, TFT widescreen
  • 2GB memory
  • 250GB hard drive
  • 8x double-layer SuperDrive
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor with dual-link DVI support


  • Intel Core 2 Duo processor
    The new MacBook Pro features Intel’s latest mobile processor — the Intel Core 2 Duo running at speeds up to 2.5GHz with a 6MB L2 cache — making the MacBook Pro one of the fastest notebooks on the planet
    • Strong at the core
      Combined with 6MB L2 cache and a myriad of other engineering leaps, the Intel Core 2 Duo boosts performance up to 55% over the original Core Duo-based MacBook Pro. With this awesome power, it’s a breeze to render complex 3D models, enjoy smooth playback of 1080p HD video, or host a four-way video conference. The Intel Core 2 Duo’s 128-bit SSE3 vector engine handles 128-bit computations in a single clock cycle, accelerating data manipulation by simultaneously applying a single instruction to multiple data. That means you can get more done in less time. So the next time you use iMovie HD or Final Cut Pro to render effects, you can thank the SSE3 vector engine for the brisk performance
    • Latest in Intel mobile architecture
      Supporting the fast Intel Core 2 Duo processor is an advanced system architecture that includes up to 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory (the fastest portable computer memory on the market), an 800MHz frontside bus, 16-lane PCI Express graphics, and a Serial ATA hard drive
    • More power, using less power
      The Intel Core 2 Duo uses Intel’s groundbreaking 65-nanometer process — resulting in transistors so small, you could fit a hundred inside a single human cell. With smaller distances for electrons to travel, and two execution cores designed to share resources and conserve power, the Intel Core 2 Duo achieves higher levels of performance as it uses fewer watts. Which is what makes it possible to design a super-powerful MacBook Pro that’s only one inch thin
    • Software just works
      In the world of MacBook Pro, nothing is complicated. So when it comes to running software on your Intel-based MacBook Pro, prepare for the expected: it just works. Applications with the Universal symbol run on either PowerPC- or Intel-based Mac computers. Most existing applications will run on your Intel-based MacBook Pro, too. Simply launch them as always. Thanks to the Rosetta technology in Mac OS X, they look and feel just like they did before
  • Front Row
    MacBook Pro includes Front Row and the Apple Remote. So, from anywhere in the room, you can present your ideas with 21st-century panache. Show off dailies. Play the latest mix. Click through your portfolio. Then head back to your hotel room to watch the TV shows and movies from the iTunes Store or a slideshow of last month’s vacation
    • Now showing on MacBook Pro
      Enjoy — and share — your music, movies, and photos from across the room on a gorgeous, portable display. Control the mood of the room with instant access to iTunes music and playlists. Or listen to your favorite radio program or Internet talk show anytime. Best of all, MacBook Pro lets you display your own creations with professional flair
    • All in the family
      Let MacBook Pro and Front Row entertain you by playing songs, slideshows, and videos from other computers in the house.1 Buy new music in the kitchen, play it in your living room. MacBook Pro automatically finds networked computers under your roof — whether they be wireless or wired. Sounds like magic, but it’s just the Bonjour instant networking technology built into every Mac
    • Under your thumb
      The Apple Remote features a minimalist six buttons. Press Menu to activate Front Row to navigate through your media. You can even use the remote to control Keynote presentations in iWork ’06
    • The ultimate digital portfolio
      Forget lackluster client meetings where you page through hard copies of your portfolio. Front Row makes it possible to showcase your digital work the way it was meant to be seen: on a brilliant 15- or 17-inch display, at the touch of the Apple Remote. A change of view is only one button away. After turning on and plugging in your external display or projector, simply hit the F7 key to switch between dual display and presentation notes
    • Software update
      If you already own a MacBook Pro, you can download updated Front Row software via the Software Update pane in System Preferences
  • iSight
    Artfully placed in the MacBook Pro display bezel is an iSight camera. This small camera lets you use iChat AV, iMovie HD, and Photo Booth to make big statements anywhere. So shout it from the rooftops. On location. Backstage. Back home. Show your point of view. Share it with the world
    • Video conferencing to go
      Talk to anyone, anywhere with iChat AV. iChat video conferencing is integrated into your iChat buddy list, so initiating a video conference is straightforward and easy. Just click the meeting attendees on your buddy list and each colleague steps into your virtual office. View their faces as if they’re all sitting around a table with you. Make your multiway video conference full screen and instantly turn your hotel room into a video conference room — without paying for a single phone call
    • Podcasts and blogs to go
      iLife ’06 makes even more of the built-in iSight camera. It’s simply another camera source for iMovie HD, but that opens up another world of creative possibilities. Record a short clip with no extra hardware. Just MacBook Pro. Then use iWeb to create a video blog entry or post your GarageBand-recorded podcast.1 Citizen journalism just got the green light with the mobile newsroom built into MacBook Pro
    • Special effects to go
      Taking pictures of yourself on the road has never been more fun. Add a special image effect — Sepia, Black & White, Glow, Comic Book, X-Ray, Colored Pencil, Thermal Camera, Spotlight, Bulge, Dent, Twirl, Squeeze, Mirror, Light Tunnel, Stretch, Fish Eye. Click. See the screen flash white (which puts you in the best light). And there you have it — a high-quality photo you can save as your iChat buddy picture, email to your friends, put in your iPhoto library, or post to your iWeb photo blog
    • iChat your way
      • One-to-one video
        Now you can read stories to the kids at bedtime whether you’re across the country or across the ocean, with no additional long-distance charges
      • One-way video
        Even if the person you want to chat with doesn’t have an iSight camera (lucky you), you can still wave hello with a one-way video chat. Just hold down the Control key as you choose a name from your buddy list and select “Invite to Video Chat.”
      • 3+1 video
        With support for video chats between up to four people and a stunning, three-dimensional view, iChat AV practically puts your colleagues, friends, and family in the room with you.2 See their faces reflected into space, just as though you were sitting around a table together
      • Audio
        Already a versatile instant text messaging application, iChat also lets you hold audio chats with up to 10 people. High-quality audio compression gives you crystal-clear conversations, while full-duplex sound lets everyone speak naturally. Record your conversations in GarageBand with everyone on a separate channel, then post your podcast immediately via iWeb
  • Design
    At just one inch thin, MacBook Pro defies reason — and probably several laws of physics. But each element inside has been carefully considered to condense all the modern mobile amenities into the tightest of quarters
    • Innovative right down to the power cord
      The MacBook Pro power adapter with MagSafe connector is just that: a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So, if you happen to trip over a power cord, you won’t send MacBook Pro flying off a table or desk; the cord simply disconnects, without damage to either the cord or the system. As an added nicety, this means less wear on the connectors
    • Cooler design
      In the eternal struggle between the forces of design and the forces of thermodynamic reality, many notebooks simply surrender, opting for clunkier designs to deal with internal heat. MacBook Pro innovates its way to a better place. Not only are its parts engineered to squeeze out every last joule of performance, they’re meticulously placed to minimize size. The result? Ultra performance in a thin, light package
    • Battery life lessons
      With battery life that rivals most notebooks in its class, MacBook Pro keeps you on the go. If you’d like to make that battery last even longer, Mac OS X has a few tricks up its sleeve. Go to System Preferences, click Energy Saver, and change battery optimization from Normal to Better Battery Life. Or tell MacBook Pro to reduce its screen brightness and give yourself a little more time untethered
    • Mobile expansion
      ExpressCard is the PCMCIA standard replacement for the CardBus PC Card slot, providing a faster way to connect to a wide variety of peripherals including 3G wireless, external hard drives, and flash cards
    • Scrolling trackpad
      MacBook Pro can tell if you’ve got one finger on the pedal, or two. With two, you can easily scroll around your documents or open contextual menus. When you need right-click functionality, simply open “Keyboard and Mouse” in System Preferences and enable the secondary click preference
    • Sudden Motion Sensor
      MacBook Pro helps protect your data if it detects a fall, by parking the hard drive head during fast changes in orientation
    • Sounds surround
      MacBook Pro sounds as good as it looks, with unprecedented attention to audio detail. For musicians on the go, MacBook Pro offers pristine sound through optical digital audio on both input and output
    • Illuminated keyboard
      Where else can you find a backlit keyboard? MacBook Pro has a built-in ambient light sensor that adjusts the keyboard and display brightness for optimal visibility
  • Graphics
    Promote your ideas on the MacBook Pro’s dazzling new displays. Throw in the color and clarity of the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB of GDDR3 SDRAM, and you'll have the power to do it all, anywhere
    • Moving performance
      The combination of a 16-lane PCI Express architecture and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor brings a new level of realism to MacBook Pro users. 16x full screen anti-aliasing, 128-bit High Dynamic Range rendering, and a texture fill rate of up to 8.2 billion per second provide unrivaled picture quality and lifelike contrast and tone for next-generation 3D animation and games. The new MacBook Pro graphics performance is up to 57% faster than the original Core Duo-based MacBook Pro
    • Everything is illuminated
      MacBook Pro makes your ideas more enlightening with a sharp, high-resolution screen. See blacker blacks, whiter whites, and many more colors in between on a brilliant 15.4-inch, 1440-by-900-pixel or 17-inch, 1680-by-1050-pixel digital display. Enjoy a nuanced view simply unavailable on other portables
    • Pixel perfect
      MacBook Pro is the ideal vehicle for viewing high-resolution Photoshop images or the latest HD Hollywood blockbusters. The optional 1920-by-1200 resolution on the 17-inch MacBook Pro offers a 30% increase in viewable area over the 1680-by-1050-resolution display. With more than half a million extra pixels at your disposal, you can view 1080 resolution HD video in all its glory — no need to resize the window to fit the screen
    • More than beautiful
      The new 15-inch MacBook Pro is better for the environment, thanks to its new mercury-free display. Backlit by light emitting diodes (LEDs), the display weighs less and is more power efficient than the cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) which most notebooks employ, and provides full brightness immediately after the system is turned on
    • Pure digital signal
      When you connect an Apple Cinema Display to MacBook Pro, you lose nothing in translation. That’s because the DVI connection gives you a pure digital signal from system to display. View more than 4 million pixels on the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display, powered by the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT and dual-link DVI built into MacBook Pro. You get three options for using your display: dual-display mode, video mirroring, and lid-closed mode
    • Finishing coat
      MacBook Pro offers an antiglare widescreen display that’s perfect for color-minded professionals. For a more immersive viewing experience, you can configure the MacBook Pro display with a glossy finish. This gives everything you see a richer, more saturated feel
  • Wireless
    Free yourself from the confines of a desk with the wireless technology in MacBook Pro. Collaborate with colleagues around the world from across the room using a Bluetooth headset and iChat AV over wireless Internet.1 Make last-minute changes to a presentation by sharing files over Bluetooth. MacBook Pro lets freedom ring
    • Unplug the Internet
      AirPort Extreme with 802.11n gives you blazing connectivity with speeds up to five times faster and up to two times the range compared to the 802.11g standard.2 This turbocharged technology lets you connect to the Internet without wires, additional phone lines, or complicated networking hardware
    • Wireless freedom
      Cafes. Hotels. Even some airplanes. Every day more public spaces become “hot spots” — offering wireless Internet access and making the digital life more mobile than ever. The new AirPort Extreme with 802.11n is compatible with Wi-Fi Certified 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g technology. This gives MacBook Pro the flexibility to work with a variety of Wi-Fi access points, so all you road warriors can get connected wherever there’s a Wi-Fi network. AirPort Extreme is also compatible with Windows PCs and the millions of Wi-Fi Certified 802.11 devices in use around the world. So even if your environment includes Windows PCs, you’ll be able to access your company’s wireless network
