This morning we had the pleasure of following the excellent live blogging skills of Tim Stevens and Darren Murph from Engadget as they relayed every useful bit of information Apple had for us. First off, kudos to the team at Engadget. The blog was seamless, to the point, and the pictures were perfect. Although we didn’t get any big information on an Apple TV set, or the iPhone 5, Apple gave us plenty of details and features to get excited about. The newest generations of the Macbook (Air and Pro) were debuted as well as their lifeblood, OS X’s, newest Mountain Lion update.

Apple has updated its MacBook Pro line with much faster models. But you probably already guessed that. Unsurprisingly, they’ve now got an Intel Light Peak port, which can transfer data at 10Gb/s. Plus, a new HD camera for FaceTime, which costs $1 from the Mac App Store.
All three models come in either a 13, 15 or 17-inch monitor. The MacBooks will run on dual-core and quad-core Intel processors, with the 15 and 17-inchers also coupling AMD Radeon graphics HD 6490M/6750M graphics and Intel HD Graphics 3000.
When it comes to pricing, the 13-inch model will cost $1,199 with a 2.3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 and 320GB hard drive, or $1,499 for a 2.7 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5 and 500GB hard drive.
The 15-inch model comes with a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, AMD Radeon HD 6490M and 500GB hard drive for $1,799. Another 15-inch model comes with 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 750GB hard drive for $2,199.
And finally, the biggest available is a 17-inch model that has a 2.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, AMD Radeon HD 6750M and 750GB hard drive, and costs $2,499.
Spring is in full swing… Out with the old, in with the new – MacBooks, that is. Apple’s newest MacBook – announced today – is now available at Abt, as is the complete line-up of new MacBook Pro laptops… perfect gifts for grads, dads (moms, too!), newlyweds, or anyone on any occasion!
The newest 13″ MacBook has a faster processor, new-generation advanced NVIDIA graphics, and 10-hour battery life, which is three hours longer than the previous model.
The newest 15″ and 17” MacBook Pro models have Intel i5 and i7 processors and NVIDIA graphics that improve performance by up to 50% – great for managing photos, editing movies, and 3D gaming. The 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro models include two USB ports, a FireWire 800 port, and SD card slot; the 17″ MacBook Pro adds a third USB port and swaps the SD card slot for an ExpressCard/34 slot.
If you need optional upgrades, Abt stocks many MacBook Pro models with more memory, larger disks, hi-resolution anti-glare screens, and solid-state drives. And don’t forget about great accessories, like the Time Capsule for backups, and iWork or Microsoft Office for Mac for creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
