The new 15 inches MacBook Pro incorporates Apple’s new design concept: the monobloc. The Monoblock is a laptop case made with incredible precision from a block of aluminum. The result isn’t just a laptop that looks great with its brushed finish and smooth edges; he is also more than capable of absorbing the hustle and bustle of life on the move.
Plus, the monoblock allowed Apple to make the 15 inches MacBook Pro lighter and thinner. This powerful and feature-rich laptop weighs just 2.49 kg (5.5 pounds) and measures at its maximum 2.41 cm (0.95 inches).
The MacBook Pro’s 15.4-inch monitor remains an LED-backlit widescreen display with a resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. The fact that these specs haven’t changed is certainly not a cause for concern as the quality is top notch. However, Apple managed to improve it with a glass front that covers the entire interior surface and eliminates the metal frame. Glass looks better, is stronger, and lasts longer. It is also free from arsenic, a toxin that is released when glass is recycled.
Another amazing feature of the 15 inches MacBook Pro is the larger and more versatile trackpad. The smooth etched glass on the trackpad now has a 39% larger surface area than before. This gives you enough space for your fingers to emit the signal from each trackpad.
These signals have also been developed and now incorporate useful extras. Apple introduced a four-finger swipe, for example, which takes full advantage of the increased trackpad size. Swipe left or right with four fingers and it will activate the app launcher. This allows you to see all of your open apps. Slide your finger up or down with four fingers and have Exposé show the desktop or all open windows.
If you’re more used to right-clicking, the trackpad gives you the option of doing it by tapping with two fingers. It’s also possible that the trackpad will provide you with a specific click box on the right side.
Current Mac owners will notice the lack of a button at the bottom of the trackpad. Apple replaced that by simply turning the entire trackpad into a button. In other words, you can click the trackpad anywhere on its surface.
The MacBook Pro’s new Mini DisplayPort connector is a tenth the size of a normal DVI port. Provides a quick and smart way to connect the 24-inch Apple Cinema Display or peripherals such as projection systems. Several Mini DisplayPort adapters also allow you to connect dual-link VGA, DVI and DVI monitors.
Apple’s 24-inch LED-backlit Cinema Display is the perfect complement to the new MacBook Pro. This is exactly what you need if you are giving a presentation or just want to enjoy the benefits of a bigger screen. Apple also designed the Cinema Display to make connecting and using your 15 inches MacBook Pro as easy as possible. Likewise, you can easily unplug and leave with your MacBook Pro on short notice.

The Cinema Display cable, for example, is divided into three connectors. One of them fits into the Mini DisplayPort of the new MacBook Pro; another socket in a USB port; and the third is a MagSafe that connects to the MacBook Pro’s power port. In other words, you can display your images on both the MacBook Pro and the Cinema Display; use the Cinema Display iSight camera, microphone and speakers; and charge your MacBook Pro via a built-in Cinema Display adapter.
Apple has partnered with NVIDIA to produce an integrated graphics processor ideal for professional applications and advanced games. The NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor comes with dual-link DVI support, and the 2.4GHz 15 inches MacBook Pro has 256MB of GDDR3 memory. Memory capacity doubles to 512MB on 2.53GHz and 2.8GHz MacBook Pro models.
However, it is not the only GPU in the new 15 inches MacBook Pro. Recognizing that sometimes users will need less power, Apple is also installing the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with the main memory. This means that you can save battery power by switching to the 9400M whenever you are working on your daily applications.
Storage on the new 15 inches MacBook Pro has increased to 250GB on the 2.4GHz model and 320GB on the 2.53GHz model. Both hard drives run at 5400 RPM, but you can choose to increase the speed to 7200 RPM if he wants it. A 128GB SSD is also available.
15 Inches MacBook Pro Environment
Apple’s innovations continue the environmental credentials of the MacBook Pro. Traditionally, laptop manufacturers have used brominated flame retardants (RFBs) in logic boards; PVC in cables; arsenic in glass components; and mercury in the CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlight of LCD monitors. Apple has successfully removed these toxins from the new MacBook Pro.
Apple has also worked hard to ensure that all aspects of the design and manufacturing process consider environmental impact. As a result, the new MacBook Pro meets the EPEAT (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) reference standard. EPEAT measures how a product affects the environment; the amount of energy it consumes; and the ability to recycle its parts. A gold rating is proof of Apple’s green commitment.
The new MacBook Pro also meets the exacting standards required to give it Energy Star status. In fact, the MacBook Pro only uses 33% of the electricity needed for a light bulb.
A high caliber product
The new 15 inches MacBook Pro has a host of great features along with cutting-edge technology enhancements and green standards. Along with the monocoque, it also has a remarkable design concept. Put all these innovations together and you have a truly superior laptop.
