Apple MacBook Pro line-up quietly boosted

Apple's MacBook Pro range has had a shake up, with Cupertino Computers releasing the new models with barely a whisper. The range is now showing in the online Apple Store.

What we're looking at is processor and storage upgrades for all existing sizes, with the prices staying the same.

The two 13 inchers are a 2.4GHz dual-core model with a 500GB hard drive and a 2.8GHz dual-core one with 750GB of space.

In the 15-inch flavour we're in line for a 2.2GHz quad-core machine with a 500GB HDD and a 2.4GHz quad-core model with 750GB.

Lastly, the 17-inch model sees its quad-core i7 chip upped to 2.4GHz from the previous 2.2GHz, with the same 750GB HDD.

There is also made to measure 15- and 17-inch machines with 2.5GHz chips and faster HDDs at 7200RPM.

No more murmurs on the super skinny MacBook Pro rumour mill as of yet unfortunately, these ones are the regular size.

Price wise it's £999 or £1,299 for the 13-inch models, £1,549 or £1,849 for the 15s, or £2,099 for the 17-inch daddy.
