    Essentially a replacement for the 2.53GHz unibody 15-inch model released in the fall of 2008, this MacBook Pro features the same processor speed as the 17-inch laptop. Otherwise, this 15-inch model is no different than what came before, with two graphics chips-one integrated in the motherboard (GeForce 9400M) and the other discrete (GeForce 9600M GT)--and a glossy screen.

    MSRP: $2499

    Pros

    • Thin, rounded design
    • Ecologically conscious
    • Retains FireWire port
    • Great new keyboard
    • Easy to service and upgrade
    • Large trackpad with numerous multi-touch gesture choices
    • Faster top-of-the-line 15-inch model
    • Gorgeous bright glossy screen

    Cons

    • Disappointing battery life compared to the last model
    • No choice of screen finishes
    • Trackpad button can be hard to press
    • Some multi-touch gestures more difficult to maneuver than others
