Apple pumps up specs of MacBook Pros, keeps same price Apple has announced today that the MacBook Pro line will see improved specs, with the price remaining the same.
The 13, 15 and 17-inch models will all see the across-the-board upgrades.

Starting at $1200, the 13-inch Pro will now run a 2.4Ghz dual-core Intel i5 processor, 4GB RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

The larger models will run on 2.4GHz quad-core i7 processors, 4GB RAM and 750GB hard drives.

For the GPUs, the smaller models come with AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB RAM or you can upgrade to an AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB RAM for $400 more. The 17-inch model will run the AMD 6770M with 1GB RAM.

Surprisingly, Apple has decided to stick with older Bluetooth tech instead of upgrading to 4.0 like it did for its MacBook Air refresh this year.

I'd say my thoughts, but then I'd just be claiming most sane people's thoughts along with it.
