The Apple MacBook Pro is the world’s most advanced notebook computer. Built on the latest Intel mobile
architecture, featuring the power of two processing cores on a single chip, along with a faster frontside bus, and up to 4GB RAM capacity, MacBook Pro delivers incredible performance with high-end creative applications.
The NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with up to 256MB of dedicated memory delivers leading-edge graphics processing. And AirPort Extreme with 802.11n provides up to five times the performance and up to two times the range of 802.11g, as well as compatibility with 802.11a/b/g networks for ultimate Wi-Fi access. Yet with all of its advances, the sleek aluminum MacBook Pro is just one inch thin. So it’s a joy to handle as well as to use.

The latest and greatest
MacBook Pro is built on the revolutionary Intel Core 2 Duo — which packs the power of two processor cores inside a single chip. It provides 4MB of Smart Cache, L2 cache that can be shared between the cores as needed. It delivers higher performance in 2D and 3D graphics, video editing, and music encoding. But the faster engine is only part of the story. MacBook Pro delivers up to 4GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory with a faster and an 800MHz frontside bus. Ultimate speed, performance, and connectivity. To go. That’s MacBook Pro.
More power, using less power
The Intel Core 2 Duo uses Intel’s groundbreaking 65-nanometer process — resulting in transistors so small, you could fit a hundred inside a single human cell. With smaller distances for electrons to travel, and two execution cores designed to share resources and conserve power, the Intel Core 2 Duo achieves higher levels of performance as it uses fewer watts. Which is what makes it possible to design a super-powerful MacBook Pro that’s only one inch thin.
Software just works
In the world of MacBook Pro, nothing is complicated. So when it comes to running software on your Intel-based MacBook Pro, prepare for the expected: it just works. Applications with the Universal symbol run on either PowerPC- or Intel-based Mac computers. Most existing applications will run on your Intel-based MacBook Pro, too. Simply launch them as always. Thanks to the Rosetta technology in Mac OS X, they look and feel just like they did before.
Whether you’re creating 3D animation, editing photos from the day’s shoot, or playing your favorite video game, MacBook Pro delivers serious processing power with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics controller.
Everything is illuminated
MacBook Pro makes your ideas more enlightening with a sharp, high-resolution screen. See blacker blacks, whiter whites, and many more colors in between on a brilliant 15.4-inch, 1440-by-900-pixel or 17-inch, 1680-by-1050-pixel digital display. Enjoy a nuanced view simply unavailable on other portables.
Packs power, not pounds
What makes MacBook Pro so mobile? Performance in a portable package. Only one inch thin and 5.4 and 6.8 pounds, respectively, the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro models are among the thinnest, lightest notebooks in their display class.
Free yourself from the confines of the studio with the wireless technology in MacBook Pro.
Collaborate with colleagues around the world from across the room using a Bluetooth headset and iChat AV over wireless Internet. Make last-minute changes to a presentation by sharing files over Bluetooth. MacBook Pro lets freedom ring.
Ready for your close-up?
Artfully placed in the MacBook Pro display bezel is an iSight camera. This small camera lets you use iChat AV, iMovie HD, and Photo Booth to make big statements anywhere. So shout it from the rooftops. On location. Backstage. Back home. Show your point of view. Share it with the world.
Battery life lessons
With battery life that rivals most notebooks in its class, MacBook Pro keeps you on the go. If you’d like to make that battery last even longer, Mac OS X has a few tricks up its sleeve. Go to System Preferences, click Energy Saver, and change battery optimization from Normal to Better Battery Life. Or tell MacBook Pro to reduce its screen brightness and give yourself a little more time untethered.
MacBook Pro sounds as good as it looks, with unprecedented attention to audio detail. For musicians on the go, MacBook Pro offers pristine sound through optical digital audio on both input and output.
Where else can you find a backlit keyboard? MacBook Pro has a built-in ambient light sensor that adjusts the keyboard and display brightness for optimal visibility.
Music. Movies. Photos. Blogs. Podcasts. Books. Calendars. Postcards. iLife is the easiest way to make the most out of every bit of your digital life.
Every MacBook comes with iLife ’06 — an amazing suite of applications that make it easy to live the digital life. Use iPhoto to share entire high-res photo albums with anyone who’s got an email address. Record your own songs and podcasts with GarageBand. Break into indie filmmaking with iMovie HD and iDVD. Then take all the stuff you made on your MacBook and share it on the web in one click with iWeb. Just turn on your MacBook and you’re halfway there.
Every MacBook Pro comes with 90 days of telephone technical support and one year of service coverage at an Apple-authorized repair center. Purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan to extend your service and support to up to three years from the purchase date of your MacBook Pro. The plan provides support for the MacBook Pro, the Mac OS, iLife, and iWork, along with one display when you purchase it with the MacBook Pro. Extended service and support for additional displays is sold separately.
