About this item

The 17" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer from Apple is a powerful Macintosh computer, in a portable form factor. Housed in a sleek glass and aluminum enclosure, it features a keyboard with an ambient light sensor and backlit keys.

The computer's glossy widescreen display features a resolution of 1920 x 1200, ideal for photographers working on the go, or for video editors cutting 1080p video. The computer is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, includes 4GB of RAM and features 802.11n Airport Extreme Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the SuperDrive DVD burner. The 500GB 5400rpm hard drive provides ample storage space.

All this hardware runs on Apple's OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system with Rosetta technology. This allows you to seamlessly run legacy applications as well as Universal Binaries that have been designed to run on both PowerPC and Intel chips, making the MacBook Pro a great choice for any creative professional.

Key Features

  • Precision Aluminum: The new gold standard Carved from a single block of aluminum, the MacBook Pro is a true engineering achievement. Its unibody enclosure is the product of precise machining. From the thumbscoop to the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't sleep indicator light no detail is unaccounted for.
  • The longest-lasting Mac notebook battery ever: Built right into each of the new MacBook Pro notebooks is a breakthrough battery that lasts dramatically longer. On a single charge, the battery in the new MacBook Pro lasts up to 7 hours and can be recharged up to 1000 times.
  • Graphics in full force: The MacBook Pro reaches a new level of high-speed, high-end game-playing power. The power-saving NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor inside every MacBook Pro is great for everyday performance, while delivering long battery life.
  • A Display of Brilliance: The moment you open your new MacBook Pro you're greeted by glorious, full screen brightness. But that's only one gleaming quality of the glossy LED-backlit widescreen display. It offers a 60 percent greater color gamut than previous generations for richer & vibrant colors.
  • Advanced Keyboard: The rigid aluminum keyboard webbing has been cut precisely to hold the keys. And the keys are curved to perfectly fit fingers. The keyboard is also illuminated, so when you're in low-light settings, such as airplanes or conference rooms, you can always see what you're typing.
  • Just Clicks: The first thing you might notice or not notice is the button. The entire trackpad is the button, so you can click anywhere. Without a separate button, the spacious trackpad gives your hands plenty of room to move on the large, silky glass surface.
  • Everything fits: Each MacBook Pro comes standard with a large hard drive with up to 500GB of storage capacity, so there's plenty of room for your photo libraries, video projects and files
  • Think Fast: The processor is based on groundbreaking 45-nm process technology and advanced Core micro architecture. With the 1066MHz front side bus and 6MB of shared L2 cache, MacBook Pro runs applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.
  • Ports with Possibilities: Every MacBook Pro is iPod, iPhone, digital camera and external hard drive ready. You'll find two USB 2.0 ports and a FireWire 800 port for connecting faster peripherals. The Mini DisplayPort is a perfect fit for the Apple LED Cinema Display.
  • From camera to computer In an instant: Transfer your photos and videos to and from your MacBook Pro just as fast as you're able to take them
  • Your Studio to go: With the latest 802.11n wireless technology built into MacBook Pro, you're always seamlessly and effortlessly connected to the wireless world out there, at home and at work. Bluetooth capabilities are also built in, so brilliant accessories can become your wireless accomplices.
  • Burn DVDs superfast: After editing and applying the finishing touches to your home movie masterpiece in iMovie and iDVD, use the ultrafast 8x SuperDrive on your MacBook Pro to burn it to DVD. And because the SuperDrive also writes to double-layer discs.
  • Be everywhere at once: Cleverly integrated - almost hidden - at the top of the MacBook Pro display is an iSight camera. Use it with iChat and you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with a colleague, or present to a client.
