Apple just released the updated MacBookPro and this might just be the one I’m waiting for! I have been holding back from upgrading my old Powerbook (the 1st laptop I ever got for myself…) and I’ve been thinking about getting a new one.
Well, my wait has finally paid off.
The new models have the multi-touch keypad, bigger hard drives, faster processors and bigger video memory!The base model has 256MB VRAM while the previous one had 128MB.
Of course, I could get the 512MB VRAM but my original plan was really to just get the 256MB. With this update, I don’t really have to spend $2,500 to get the laptop I want. I can just get the $2,000 model! Thank you, Apple!
Specs for the new models:$1999. Macbook Pro 15″ 2.4GHz / 2GB / 200GB 5400RPM / 256MB Vram$2499. Macbook Pro 15″ 2.5GHz / 2GB / 250GB 5400RPM / 512MB Vram$2799. Macbook Pro 17″ 2.5GHz / 2GB / 250GB 5400RPM / 512MB Vram
Of course, the hardest part now is letting go of my Powerbook. Yes, I do have attachment issues and all so bear with me…I’ve traveled with it a lot and it is still very much reliable but I have to move up because it can’t keep up with the amount of photos that I have to work on. Oh well, I won’t say goodbye to you yet but I’m getting myself ready to do so… 😦
