Apple Intel notebooks
Both MacBook Pro notebooks feature a slot-load SuperDrive (DVD+-RW/CD-RW), a DVI-out port to drive an external display with a VGA-out adapter included, and built-in Dual Link support for driving an Apple 30-inch Cinema HD Display. Both models also offer a built-in iSight video camera, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and built-in AirPort Extreme wireless networking with Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.
Each MacBook Pro includes an ExpressCard/34 expansion card slot, as well as two USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 400 port. Additional jacks provide one audio line in and one audio line out port, each supporting both optical digital and analog.
A scrolling TrackPad and illuminated keyboard round out the input with the infrared Apple Remote, and each notebook is powered by a 60 Watt hour lithium polymer battery alongside an 85W AC power adapter with Apple's MagSafe magnetic power connector.
The 1.67Ghz model includes a PCI Express-based ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 with 128MB of GDDR3 memory, while the 1.83Ghz version touts the same graphics card with 256MB of GDDR3 memory.
Additional built-to-order options include the ability to upgrade to a 120GB 5400rpm- or 100GB 7200rpm-hard drive, add up to 2GB of DDR2 SDRAM, add an Apple USB Modem, and sign up for the AppleCare Protection Plan warranty service.
