MacBook Pros get processor bump, tops at 2.16GHz

Ryan Block, @ryan

No, the it's not a new MacBook Pro -- the damned thing's not even out yet -- but it looks like Apple's one-upping themselves on the MacBook Pro's CPU speeds,and has revamped the scale. Now their entry-level $2,000 MacBook Pro has a 1.83GHz Core Duo (up from 1.67GHz), and the $2,499 model has a 2GHz processor (up from 1.83GHz) with an option to upgrade to a 2.16GHz chip for another $300. Are they going to pass this upgrade on to people who've already pre-ordered their MacBook? Well, we certainly hope so, or Apple's liable to have a lot of irate customers on their hands for upgrading their computers faster than they can actually release them.
