New baby

Filed under: Apple | 2 Comments

Just pulled the trigger on my new favorite possession, a Core 2 Duo equipped MacBook Pro. Should be here next week. My PowerBook has put in over 3 years of service and hasn’t had any significant problems. It will be around 2010 when I upgrade the next time if I keep the MBP as long.

I also snapped up a V640 EV-DO card today for when it comes, as my old PC5740 won’t fit.

Here are the specs:

MacBook Pro, 15-inch, 2.33GHz
3GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM – 1x2GB, 1x1GB
MacBook Pro 15-inch Widescreen Display
200GB Serial ATA Drive @ 4200 rpm
2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
SuperDrive 6x (DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)

    Congratulations – I unfortunately bought my new baby last week and am stuck with a recently obselete version!!! 🙂

  2. It took a lot of patience to hold out this long… I was just comparing some specs this evening. The new machine has twice the RAM (running at a faster speed too), 8 times the L2 cache running about 20x faster, 4x faster frontside bus, 2.5x the disk space, and 3.75 times the CPU if you add up both cores. Oh and a faster burner with dual layers. Pretty spiffy upgrade!
