About the Apple Macbook Pr

The 17" MacBook Pro from Apple is a powerful notebook computer with an innovative aluminum unibody design. It is loaded with advanced power management features and an integrated battery, which work together to provide up to 7 hours of wireless web browsing. You may notice an unfamiliar logo next to one of the ports on the left side of the system. This is Thunderbolt, a high-speed interface that can move data at an amazing 10Gbps, which is double that of USB 3.0. The Thunderbolt port also doubles as a display output because it shares the same physical form factor as a Mini DisplayPort. You can daisy-chain up to six devices, so you'll be able to connect high-speed external storage and an external Apple LED Cinema display via the same port.

The computer's 17" display features LED backlight technology and a glossy finish. Its 1920 x 1200 native resolution gives you ample screen space to work with. You'll be able to output to an external display at up to 2560 x 1600 via Thunderbolt. Any Mini DisplayPort-compatible display will plug in without the need of an adapter. If you have a display with DVI, VGA or HDMI input, you'll only need to purchase an adapter cable (i.e., HDMI-to-Mini DisplayPort) for connection.

You'll be able to communicate with friends and family thanks to built-in support for FaceTime chat. The computer's FaceTime HD camera supports 720p HD video chat via the included app. You can make video calls to other Mac users with FaceTime as well as to anyone with an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or an iPod touch model with a built-in camera. The system is powered by a quad-core 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor. The computer is loaded with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 750GB 5400rpm hard drive and a SuperDrive DVD burner. You'll be able to connect to the Internet with ease via 802.11n Wi-Fi or wired Gigabit Ethernet. The MacBook Pro also features built-in Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, which allows you to connect wireless headphones, keyboard, mice and other compatible peripherals without a hassle.

Graphics are handled by integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics, which gives you the best of both worlds in regards of battery life and performance. The MacBook Pro uses integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics for everyday use, such as web browsing and word processing. It is also capable of HD video playback. The computer features a comfortable backlit chiclet-style keyboard, which features space between each key for improved accuracy and comfort when typing. It also sports a glass Multi-Touch trackpad with a clickable design. Rather than having a separate button for mouse clicks, the entire surface of the pad is clickable. This increases the active surface area and allows you to quickly click without having to maneuver to the bottom of the trackpad.

The trackpad also fully supports Multi-touch gestures. You can tap the trackpad with one finger to click, tap with two fingers to right click, scroll through documents using two fingers, pinch to zoom, navigate through Safari or iPhoto with three-finger left and right swipes or use two fingers to rotate a photo or PDF. iLife '11 has a complete suite of digital creativity applications. Easy enough for anyone to use, iLife '11 will help you edit your home movies, organize digital photos and compose original music. iLife '11 includes iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand.

The 64-bit Mac OS X Lion features Time Machine backup, which automatically backs up system data to an external hard drive. It also features intuitive Cover Flow navigation, the powerful Spotlight search tool and Quick Look document preview. You'll be able to use Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac, if needed.

Apple Macbook Pr Features

  • Multi-Touch Trackpad - It Just Feels Right: The Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there's more room to track and more room to click left, right, center and everywhere in between
  • A Display Full of Bright Ideas: At the top of the screen, they hid the built-in FaceTime HD Camera so you can see your friends and family in beautiful widescreen and as little of the camera as possible. The camera is even thinner than the one found inside the iPhone 4
  • Magnetic Latch: Because the magnetic latch has no moving parts to snag, jam, or break, even opening and closing your MacBook Pro is a pleasure
  • Easy Access to Connections and Ports: The connections and ports on the MacBook Pro, such as the MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB, SDXC card reader and audio in/out, are all smartly integrated on the same side of the notebook
  • MagSafe Power Adapter: The power cord is held in place magnetically, so if someone should happen to trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook Pro stays put safely
  • ThunderBolt Port: Thunderbolt lets you connect high-performance devices and high-resolution displays to a single, compact port. It even supports Mini DisplayPort devices, such as your Apple LED Cinema Display or an HDMI adapter for your television
  • Next-Generation Quad-Core Intel Processor: The 17" MacBook Pro now features a 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor. With 3.6GHz Turbo Boost support and 6MB of cache, this CPU allows the computer to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation
  • FaceTime HD Camera: Get more of your friends in the picture with crisp, widescreen HD video. The new FaceTime HD camera gives you three times the resolution of the previous camera, which is perfect for brilliant LED-backlit display, along with improved low-light performance
  • A Long-Lasting Battery - Charge Less, Do More: The MacBook Pro delivers amazing battery life even with more powerful processors and faster graphics. An energy-efficient processor architecture with an integrated video encoder help improve battery life
  • It's Very Well Connected: When you're out and about, the latest 802.11n wireless technology in the MacBook Pro makes it easy to get connected just about anywhere. The MacBook Pro automatically finds available networks and allows you to join them with a click
  • Ports With Possibility: With the new Thunderbolt port, you can daisy-chain as many as six devices, including your display, to create a full-fledged workstation. 3 USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port let you connect your iPad, iPod, iPhone, digital cameras and external hard drives
  • Burn DVDs Superfast: After using iMovie & iDVD to edit & apply the finishing touches to your home movie, use the 8x SuperDrive on the MacBook Pro to burn it to DVD in no time. Since the SuperDrive writes to double-layer discs (DVDs with nearly 9GB of space), it's a great way to back up data as well
  • Quad-Core 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 CPU: The MacBook Pro uses an Intel refined chipset. It performs up to twice as fast as the previous generation. It can breeze through demanding tasks like editing HD video, compiling audio or rendering a multilayered image file
  • Faster Single-Chip Microarchitecture: Whether you're watching a movie, updating your blog or editing photos, data has to travel from place to place to be processed. The latest Intel Core architecture puts the processor, cache, memory controller and graphics engine on a single chip
  • Turbo Boost 2.0: Turbo Boost 2.0 is even more dynamic and efficient. By shifting core frequency in smaller increments than before, it allows the processor to manage performance without sacrificing efficiency
  • Hyper-Threading: Hyper-Threading is now standard on every MacBook Pro. This technology allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core, so OS X recognizes eight virtual cores on a quad-core processor and four on a dual-core processor
  • Integrated Memory Controller: With faster access to memory, each core can get right to work on your data, rather than waiting for it to arrive. That's why the new Intel Core architecture uses an integrated memory controller to connect fast 1333MHz memory directly to the processor
  • Energy-Efficient Graphics: The graphics processor also automatically increases clock speeds for higher workloads. An integrated video encoder enables HD video calls with FaceTime, while an efficient decoder gives you long battery life when you're watching DVDs or iTunes movies
  • Mac OS X Lion: At the heart of every MacBook Pro, as well as every Mac, is Mac OS X Lion. This operating system is both easy to use and incredibly powerful. It's built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation and engineered to take full advantage of the technologies in every Mac
  • Performance and Expansion Never Before Seen on a Notebook: With 10Gbps of throughput in both directions, Thunderbolt I/O technology lets you move data to and from peripherals up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and more than 12 times faster than with FireWire 800
  • High Performance on Display: Thunderbolt I/O technology provides native support for Mini DisplayPort displays. It also supports DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI and VGA displays through the use of existing adapters. So you can connect your Apple LED Cinema Display or other existing display
  • Efficient Power Supply: The MacBook Pro includes a highly efficient power supply that reduces the amount of power wasted when bringing electricity from wall to your computer. Lower power consumption reduces energy bills & lessens the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants
  • ENERGY STAR Qualification: The MacBook Pro meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA in their ENERGY STAR 5.2 qualification. ENERGY STAR 5.2 sets significantly higher efficiency limits for power supplies and aggressive limits for the computer's typical annual power consumption
  • Advanced Power Management: Mac OS X activates sleep mode on already energy-efficient LED-backlit displays. And it balances tasks across both central processors and graphics processors. OS X never misses a power-saving opportunity, no matter how small
  • EPEAT Gold Rating: The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool, or EPEAT, evaluates the environmental impact of a product based on how recyclable it is, how much energy it uses and how it's designed and manufactured
