The 2012 MacBook Pro adopts Intel???s newest, more efficient Ivy Bridge processor technology, which incorporates Intel HD Graphics 4000 (up to 60% faster, according to Apple) in the CPU. The base 13??? model now runs a 2.5 GHz dual-core Core i5 processor (with Turbo Boost to 3.1 GHz) and has 4??GB of system memory and a 500 GB hard drive with an $1,199 price tag, while the ???better??? version moves to a 2.9 GHz i7 CPU (3.6 GHz with Turbo Boost), doubles system memory to 8??GB, and includes a 750 GB hard drive.
Apple offers a few build-to-order options: Upgrade system memory from 4??GB to 8??GB for $100 on the base model, and/or choose a higher capacity or faster hard drive or an SSD.
This is one of the first Macs to use Intel HD 4000 Graphics, and the Intel GPU uses 384 MB of system memory.
The 13??? MBP design puts all the ports on the left side, leaving the right side for the SATA SuperDrive.
The new models are rated at 7 hours of battery power, and they use Bluetooth 4.0 along with 802.11n WiFi for wireless connectivity.
The MacBook Pro has an 18-bit glossy display (not the 24 bits you might expect). Like the iPad and iPhone, it does not have an easily replaceable battery. Cost to have Apple replace the 63.5 Watt-hour battery out of warranty is $129.
