Apple Introduces New 15- and 13-Inch MacBook Pros

Right out of the gate, Apple introduces us to the new 15- and 13-inch MacBook Pros. Not only are these made in the same unibody aluminum case that the rest of the Mac lines are available in, but it's faster and still lighter than most models on the market and will keep you working longer than before: the new lithium ion batteries will last up to seven hours and 1,000 charges before the battery starts to show its age.

And with the new plumped up battery, the new MBP's will hold an up to a 500GB hard drive and 8GB of memory. But the most exciting part of the new MacBook Pro is the new SD Card slot. Instead of using your card reader (that I was complaining about last week), you can now just pop your SD card right into your computer instead. Both sizes of MacBook Pros will be released today and will start at $1,199 for the 13-inch and $1,699 for the 15-inch model.
