Apple Announces "Update" to MacFaithful Credit Cards

mbp.jpgIt’s been 267 days since Apple last updated the MacBook Pro. That’s 81 days longer than the company historically takes between updates. Which means it was high time for an upgrade. And today we were finally given one.

This morning Apple (AAPL) refreshed both its MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, adding Intel’s Penryn Core 2 Duo chipset (up to 2.4 GHz for the MacBook and up to 2.6 GHz for the MacBook Pro). As Apple’s flagship portable, the MacBook Pro now boasts the same multitouch trackpad found in the MacBook Air and an LED backlighting option for the 17-inch model. All but the low-end MacBook feature a two-gigabyte RAM, with a build-to-order option that allows for their upgrade to a four-gigabyte RAM. New Macbooks are priced from $1,099 to $1,499, new MacBook Pros from $1,999 to $2,799.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
