MacBook Pro updates and Speedmark 7

With all the talk surrounding iOS 5 and the new iPhone 4S, it’s easy to forget that Apple also makes computers. And it’s even easier when updates are as low-key as last week’s MacBook Pro announcements.

In this episode of the Macworld Podcast, we shine the spotlight back on the Mac, with a look at the recent processor and graphics improvements to the MacBook Pro lineup. Macworld Lab director James Galbraith and senior editor Roman Loyola join me to talk laptops, as well as Macworld’s new and improved Speedmark benchmark.
