With its durable unibody enclosure, Multi-Touch trackpad, and energy-efficient design, this 13.3" MacBook Pro looks beautiful and works beautifully too. Like every member of the MacBook Pro family, this model is machined from a single piece of aluminum, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It’s called the unibody. The first time you pick up a MacBook Pro you’ll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined, and it feels strong and durable too. This makes it perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.
A display full of bright ideas
Everything Apple designers and engineers do, they do for a reason. They chose LED backlight technology for the MacBook Pro because it makes the display instantly bright and allows it to be incredibly thin. They used edge-to-edge glass not just because it looks beautiful, but because it lends structure to the display. At the top of the screen they hid the new built-in FaceTime HD camera so you see your friends and family in big, beautiful widescreen — and as little of the camera as possible.
Multi-Touch trackpad. It just feels right
The Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there’s more room to track and more room to click — left, right, center, and everywhere in between. Apple designers and engineers spent countless hours considering things like sensitivity (how much pressure triggers a click?), audio feedback (what does the click sound like?), and friction over the smooth glass surface (what does it feel like?). The result is a trackpad that just makes sense to you — and your fingers.
Easy access to connections and ports
The connections and ports on MacBook Pro — MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB, SDXC, and audio in/out — are all smartly integrated on the same side of the notebook. This makes sure your cables stay neatly organized, and connecting and disconnecting your devices easier and more convenient.
Designed to make an impact. Just not on the environment
Complete control over how the MacBook Pro is designed, how it’s manufactured, and how it’s packaged gives Apple an environmental edge. LED backlight technology preserves energy. Glass and aluminum are highly recyclable. MacBook Pro is free of most harmful toxins. The packaging for the 13" model is 41 percent smaller. That means fewer trees used for boxes and fewer planes, trains, and trucks used for transport.
Next-generation dual-core Intel processor
The 13.3 MacBook Pro now features a 2.3GHz Intel Core i5 processor or the fastest dual-core processor available. With Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.4GHz, these processors allow the 13.3" MacBook Pro to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation.
The graphics performance you need, when you need it
The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor — now included across the MacBook Pro lineup — handles the things you do every day. It encodes video quickly, making HD video calls with FaceTime possible. It also decodes efficiently so you get long playback time for DVDs and iTunes movies.
Introducing Thunderbolt: The fastest, most versatile I/O ever in a notebook
Imagine accessing multiple streams of uncompressed HD video — from your notebook — at speeds that let you edit an HD feature film in real time. That’s how Thunderbolt technology will connect the next generation of high-performance peripherals to the next generation of computers — starting with MacBook Pro. Ultrafast and ultra-flexible, the Thunderbolt pipeline is more than 12 times faster than FireWire 800 and up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0, and it offers unprecedented expansion capabilities. It changes what you can do on a notebook.
The Thunderbolt port will give you plug-and-play performance with a whole new world of Thunderbolt peripherals, as well as with the Apple LED Cinema Display and other Mini DisplayPort peripherals. You can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display. And with support for video and eight-channel audio, it’s easy to connect HDMI-compatible devices — like your TV and home stereo — using the HDMI adapter you already have. Current VGA, DVI, and DisplayPort adapters are also supported.
FaceTime HD camera
Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera gives you three times the resolution of the previous camera — perfect for the brilliant LED-backlit display — along with improved low-light performance. You and your friends can make 720p HD calls from one new MacBook Pro to another. You can also make video calls to other Intel-based Mac computers, iPhone 4, or the new iPod touch.
The Multi-Touch trackpad is the most natural way to interact with what’s on your screen, and the smooth glass surface gives you plenty of room for gestures. Pinch to zoom in and out, swipe to flip through photos, rotate to adjust an image, and much more. The buttonless design lets you click anywhere. If you’re coming from a right-click world, you can right-click with two fingers or configure a right-click area on the trackpad. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
A long-lasting battery means you charge less and do more
The new MacBook Pro delivers amazing battery life thanks to its more powerful processor and faster graphics. An energy-efficient processor architecture with an integrated video encoder helps improve battery life. So you can expect to surf the web wirelessly for up to 7 hours on a single charge, or take your entire creative studio on the road for live performances or a location shoot. Advanced chemistry and Adaptive Charging give you up to 1000 full charge and discharge cycles — nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries. And, because the MacBook Pro battery lasts up to five years, MacBook Pro uses just one battery in the same time a typical notebook uses three. That’s better for you and for the environment.
Apple is using a new, more rigorous battery test that measures the results you can expect in the real world — like surfing your favorite sites in a coffee shop or catching up on the latest web videos. Even using this new test, MacBook Pro delivers amazing battery life. For your real life.
Anytime, anywhere access
Now you can get Internet access when and where you need it, because the new MacBook Pro can share the 3G connection on your iPhone 4. Check with your mobile provider for details.
It’s very well connected
When you’re out and about, the latest 802.11n wireless technology in MacBook Pro makes it easy to get connected just about anywhere. MacBook Pro automatically finds available networks and allows you to join them with a click. Bluetooth wireless technology is also built in, so you can use your favorite wireless accessories right out of the box.
Ports with possibility
With the new Thunderbolt port, you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display, to create a full-fledged workstation. Two USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port let you connect your iPad, iPod, iPhone, digital cameras, and external hard drives.
The new SDXC card slot on the 13.3" MacBook Pro model supports up to 64GB cards and makes it a snap to transfer all those photos to and from your MacBook Pro, so you can edit and share them on the spot.
Burn DVDs superfast
After using iMovie and iDVD to edit and apply the finishing touches to your home movie, use the 8x SuperDrive on MacBook Pro to burn it to DVD in no time. Since the SuperDrive writes to double-layer discs (DVDs with nearly 9GB of space), it’s great for backing up data, too.
Mac OS X
At the heart of every MacBook Pro — and every Mac — is Mac OS X, an operating system custom made for the Intel multicore processors and advanced graphics inside. The latest version, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, is based on an entirely 64-bit architecture, and so are virtually all of the applications that come with a Mac. Translation: Everything you do on your MacBook Pro happens with dramatic speed and incredible overall performance. You also get iLife, a software suite featuring iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, and more fun-to-use programs.
