New MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo models released!
As expected, Apple's MacBook Pro page and online store now shows the new 15 and 17 inch models to use the Core 2 Duo processor at 2.16 and 2.33 GHz. FW 800 on both models. Pricing: 1999 USD for the lowend 15" model, 2799 USD for the 17" model and 2499 USD for the faster 15" model. You can fit them with a harddrive of up to 200 GB now, and they all have DL burners. We expect the MacBooks to be updated in the coming two weeks as well.

hey, :)

Boy, oh boy! I'm glad Apple came out with the 15" & 17" models first & now with 3GB of RAM — tasty!

With the extra RAM I wonder what the trade off would be getting the bigger but slower hard drive?

100GB of storage with the 7200rpm drive is not much after installing the Apple Pro Apps (FCP Studio & Aperture) & Adobe Photoshop Suite. Storing video/photo/sound media on an external drive is the way to go anyway, maybe, this drive with it?

The minimum is already 120 GB.

wow, that would be just fantastic! i hope they put that one in instead of the 100GB 7200 one i ordered on Tuesday. the Apple site still says 100GB.

What do you mean the site still says 100 GB? www.apple.com/macbookpro/ clearly says 120 GB is the new min. config. ...
 
hey, fryke :)

on the 17" mbp 2.33 model a hard drive of 100GB at 7200 rpms :)
 
i was told my mbp ships on friday the 17th so hopefully i'll get it the week of the 20th. the mbp i ordered has a spanish keyboard, glossy screen, 2.33, 3 GB ram (interesting thing about the ram capacity why it is not at 4GB), oh, well, not complaining since i'm replacing an old apple greengrayish powerbook 100 laptop (great for letter writing, email & conversations)

:)

mr. moto :)
