The new MacBook Pro laptops have emerged, and, of course, there are questions.
Me, I’m counting myself lucky I’m not standing in a t-shirt in an Apple Store at the moment, as it’s probably now considered fair game to literally tackle employees and make them explain what the refresh rate is on the new LED-backlit displays.
Still, some worthwhile early guides have emerged. Gizmodo was able to sit down with Apple representatives and fire questions about the new hardware along, as represented here. The interview doesn’t answer everything and Apple keeps mum about forthcoming technologies such as the possibility of Blu-Ray optical drives arriving in future models, but there remain some good tech tidbits in there.
Keeping with the techie dementia that led him to create the PowerPage in the first place, Jason O’Grady has posted two updated blogs about the new hardware over at The Apple Core. The first offers details about the new NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics card found in the newest MacBook Pro laptops and what this offers over the previous ATI cards. The second describes the changes found within Intel’s Santa Rosa architecture such as improved 802.11n support, better power management and new features that allow network administrators to quarantine, repair and inspect the laptops remotely in given situations.
Take a look and tell us what you think.
