    When Apple introduced the MacBook in May, it bumped the processor speeds on its 15-inch MacBook Pro models. The top-end MacBook Pro now features a 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo processor, up from 2GHz from the original configuration. Other than that -- and an optional glossy widescreen display -- the specifications remain unchanged from the high-end 15-inch MacBook Pro we reviewed in the May 2006 issue of Macworld.

    • Classic design
    • Runs Universal applications quickly
    • Integrated iSight camera
    • Bright screen
    • Improved wireless range

    • Non-native apps can run slowly
    • Intermittent processor noise on some systems
    • No FireWire 800 port
