newappleApple on Wednesday said it has unveiled the 17-inch MacBook Pro featuring a durable aluminium unibody enclosure, and a new built-in battery that delivers up to eight hours of use and offers up to 1,000 recharges for more than three times the lifespan of conventional notebook batteries.

The new 17-inch MacBook Pro has a high resolution LED-backlit display and the same large glass Multi-Touch trackpad introduced with the new MacBook family in October.

In addition, the new 17-inch MacBook Pro includes state of the art NVIDIA graphics and the latest generation Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processors.

As part of the industry’s greenest notebook family, the new 17-inch MacBook Pro is made of highly recyclable materials, meets stringent energy efficiency standards and is made without many of the harmful toxins found in other computers.

Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, said “We’ve developed new battery technology that is better for the user and better for the environment” .

“Apple’s advanced chemistry and innovative technology deliver up to eight hours of use on a full charge cycle and up to 1,000 recharges.”

The new 17-inch MacBook Pro includes an ultra-thin, widescreen glossy 1920×1200 display with 78 per cent more pixels than the 15-inch MacBook Pro and a 60 per cent greater colour gamut that delivers desktop-quality colour in a notebook.

The LED-backlit display has brilliant instant-on performance, uses up to 30 per cent less energy and eliminates the mercury found in industry standard fluorescent tube backlights.

Measuring just 0.98-inches thin and weighing 6.6 pounds, the 17-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s thinnest and lightest 17-inch notebook.

The 17-inch MacBook Pro is the most powerful Mac notebook to date with the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors available up to 2.93 GHz, up to 8GB DDR3 main memory and a graphics architecture that allows users to switch between the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor for better battery life and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT discrete graphics processor for higher performance.

The new 17-inch MacBook Pro includes a 320GB 5400 rpm hard drive standard with a 320GB 7200 rpm hard drive and 128GB and 256GB solid state drives as options.

It joins the aluminium unibody MacBook family in setting new standards for environmentally friendly notebooks with every model achieving EPEAT Gold status.

The new MacBook family meets stringent Energy Star 4.0 requirements, contains no brominated flame retardants and uses internal cables and components that are PVC-free.

Some build-to-order options include a 2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 8GB 1066 MHz DDR 3 memory, 320GB 7200 rpm hard drive, a 128GB or 256GB solid state drive, anti-glare display and Apple Remote

    I am a die hard Apple fan!
    Good to see your post on their products.

    Have you heard about the Palm Pre? Just Google it, they are doing some cool stuff. Maybe better than the iPhone?

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
