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.

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.”
