Review: 17-inch MacBook Pro 2.5GHz

For those looking for a portable desktop experience, the 17-inch MacBook Pro 2.5GHz offers a great combination of a large widescreen display, fast performance and luggable design.

17-inch MacBook Pro/2.5GHz

The changes to this 17-inch system are minor compared to the radical overhaul of the 15-inch MacBook Pro models. The 17-inch configuration features the same enclosure and processor as the spring 2008 update, instead of the unibody design that the rest of the MacBook Pro line features. But Apple upped the shipping RAM to the maximum 4GB and boosted the hard-drive capacity to 320GB. The 17-inch MacBook Pro now comes with the 1920 x 1200 screen, whether in standard glossy or optional matte form.

Review: MacBook Air 1.86GHz

The new MacBook Air is definitely faster than its predecessor. The big question is, can it compete with the new, lighter MacBook? Jason Snell has the details.

MacBook Air/1.86GHz

Apple's follow-up to the early 2008 debut of the ultraportable features faster RAM, more storage (a 128GB solid-state drive, double the capacity of the original SSD option), and improved graphics. Instead of an integrated Intel GMA X3100, the Air now features an Nvidia GeForce 9400 graphics processor (though it still shares memory with the system RAM).

If you use a laptop as a primary computer, the AudioHub can enhance your experience when watching videos or listening to music without taking up a lot of desktop space.

Review: MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo/2.4GHz and 2.53GHz

Inside and out, the new MacBook Pro 15-inch models—with speeds of 2.4GHz and 2.53GHz—have been remodeled, redesigned, and reengineered for a completely new laptop experience.

15-inch MacBook Pro/2.53GHz

While it appears to be identical to its predecessor at first glance, this MacBook Pro has been remodeled both inside and out. It sports a new unibody architecture similar to the MacBook and MacBook Air enclosures. The matte screen option is gone, replaced by a glossy 15-inch screen. The latest MacBook Pro also employs Nvidia's Hybrid SLI technology, a pairing of two graphics chips-one integrated in the motherboard (GeForce 9400M) and the other discrete (GeForce 9600M GT). This model features a slightly faster processor--2.53GHz vs. 2.5GHz--than its predecessor at the same price.

The processor speed remains unchanged, as does the price for the 2.4GHz model.

Review: Aluminum MacBook Core 2 Duo/2GHz and 2.4GHz

Since the first MacBook, Apple has tweaked and improved its consumer-level laptop line three times. But the latest version is a giant leap for the MacBook, compared to the baby steps of the earlier updates. With the latest design, the MacBook has become a lot more like a MacBook Pro mini.

13-inch MacBook/2.4GHz

In October 2008, Apple introduced a new MacBook design that housed the company's consumer-friendly laptop into a MacBook Pro-like aluminum enclosure with a large glass trackpad. Graphics have improved with the addition of an Nvidia GeForce 9400m chip. While the integrated graphics continue to share memory with the system RAM, there's more shared (256MB as opposed to 144MB) and it's the faster DDR3 SDRAM. Like the MacBook Air, the MacBook no longer ships with FireWire ports -- just two USB 2.0 ports. This 2.4GHz model does feature a backlit keyboard, which is not available in the other MacBook configurations.
