Just upgraded ;)

New Macbooks are out

Apple’s 2011 refresh for it’s Macbook Pro line is out and wow am I excited to get one (read more via TechieXplorer).

I’m looking to get this SKU:

  • 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 or 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
  • 4GB 1333MHz RAM
  • 500GB 5400-rpm or 750GB 5400-rpm hard disk drive
  • Intel HD Graphics 3000 integrated graphics card
  • AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256MB GDDR5 or AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB GDDR5 dedicated GPU
  • Built-in battery (7 hours)

The price? $1799.  Pretty expensive yep, but I think I can manage with my current income – expenditures.  I just have to wait until I build my new gaming rig before shelling out cash for a new Macbook Pro
