With up to 3x the performance of the previous models, they let you see more frames per second in 3D games, or work on HD video projects with more speed and responsiveness than before.
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.
The new 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.
Multi-Touch trackpad lets you be more hands-on
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. And if you'e 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 more a powerful processor and faster graphics. An energy-efficient processor architecture with an integrated video encoder, along with automatic graphics switching, all help 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.6 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.

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.
