Summary:

In addition to today’s announcement of the MacBook, its big brother also got some slight feature bumps. The MBP is now available with an optional glossy display, and processor speeds have been bumped from 2.0 to 2.16 GHz, and 1.83 to 2.0 GHz. Via TUAW.

  2. That’s just great… less than a month after I bought my 2 Ghz Macbook Pro I see they’ve effectively lowered the price by $500. I might actually call Apple to complain. For what I paid, I should have a 2.16 Ghz processor.

  3. Same here. I would never take the glossy display though.

  4. What’s the point of the glossy display? Sony and those other hideous brands have them, but why??!

  5. The Glossy display makes colors look more saturated, and blacks darker. The display might LOOK better, but the colors are inaccurate.

  6. I agree with Brandon, before the price was dropped today the macbook 15″ was a rip off compared to the 17″, but I should know better. No company is worse than intel for upgrades, they upgrade like every third day, thus apple will upgrade every third day.

  7. I glad I waited this one out ;)

    My friend jumped in too early and went for the all screetching burning red hot 1.6Ghz hes now got an overpriced discontinued slow MBP!

    Patience IS a virtue!

    Not sure about the glossy screen though good in a dark room you get awfull reflections in a well lit room.

  8. I actually purchases a new MPB yesterday, I went to the store with the intentions of getting the new higher end MB. That glossy display.. its terrible in my opinion, in fact i was a big choice in me not purchasing it, that and the funky keyboard and the graphiics cars… and well, I guess abunch of stuff. In any event, if you ask me, just say no to the glosy display.

  9. Try this if your unsure about screens!

    I can’t make up my mind the glossy screen looks alot clearer but I never had any trouble with a matte screen!
