WWDC 2009 – Apple MacBooks, Pro and Air Updates – Green Apples

green-notebooksApple just announced new MacBook Pro models with the same upgraded, 7-hour battery life as the 17-inch MacBook Pro. It’ll also feature an SD-card slot.

Apple promises the battery will last 5 years in the same body we’ve come to know and love, along with upgrades across the board: A 3.06 GHz Dual Core Intel processor, 8GB of memory, a 500GB 7200rpm HDD, all at $1,699—$300 less than the current model.

The MacBooks have been given a bit of a spec bump for their 13 inch MacBook and so brings it into MacBook Pro territory. It gets the backlit keyboard, SD card slot and the option to be loaded with up to 8GB of RAM.

Also new MacBook Airs get a price cut to $1499 for the base Air – $1799 with a 256GB SSD. $700 cheaper than before.
