Apple Notebook Event: MacBook Pro Shipping Tomorrow

As rumored the DVD slot has been moved to the left side. A rumor not true, however: Blu-ray. There’s no Blu-ray capability in the new Apple (AAPL) notebooks.

Ports on left side include a new mini-display port. The left side also features a battery indicator.

Other points : A solid-state drive option. The unit is less than 1-inch thick, .95 inches to be exact.

There are two models. The model with a 15.4-inch display comes with a 2.4 Ghz Intel Core Duo and sells for $1,999.

The second model has the same screen size and faster processors.

They go on sale today and start shipping tomorrow.

The new MacBook Pro is the most environmentally-friendly computer Apple has ever made. It’s the first Apple laptop to win an Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool–EPEAT–seal from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Coming up: MacBook Air.
