Apple updates MacBook Pro line of notebooks

Friday, February 25th, 2011
Ten months after its last revamp in Apr 2010, Apple updates its premium line of notebooks with groundbreaking Thunderbolt technology and more powerful graphics engine, and doubles processor speed across the board.

Apple's revamped MacBook Pro family of products

MacBook Pro is the first computer on the market to implement the new Thunderbolt I/O technology which promises blistering data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbits/s with high performance external devices. This is 20 times faster than the ubiquitous USB2.0.

Ports for the MacBook Pro notebook

Note the single Thunderbolt port (fourth from the left) labeled with the symbol of the lightning bolt.

Developed by Intel with collaboration from Apple, and previously code-named “Light Peak”, Thunderbolt allows multiple devices to be daisy-chained together, without bandwidth and power attenuation concerns.

This enhances the expandability of the notebooks as the daisy-chained devices can be connected to the single Thunderbolt port, without having to build multiple USB ports on the notebook, where space comes at a premium.

A FaceTime HD camera is now built into the MacBook Pro.

The larger 15- and 17-in models runs on a quad-core i7 and comes with AMD’s Radeon HD 6490M or 6750M discrete graphics. Apple claims that these were three times faster than the Nvidia graphics chips in the older models.

It also claims that all MacBook Pros are “up to twice as fast as their predecessors.”
