Apple bumps up the 17inch MacBook Pro with Intel's new Core 2 Duo

A 2.16GHz or 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. Up to 39% faster than its predecessor.(1) A built-in iSight for instant video conferencing on the move. Front Row with Apple Remote to dazzle everyone in the room. Now available in 15- and 17-inch models starting at just $1999. Start your engines.


Performance squared
MacBook Pro is built on the revolutionary Intel Core 2 Duo ó which packs the power of two processor cores (up to 2.33GHz) inside a single chip. It provides 4MB of Smart Cache, L2 cache that can be shared between the cores as needed. It delivers higher performance in 2D and 3D graphics, video editing, and music encoding. But the new engine is only part of the story. MacBook Pro supports hard drives up to 200GB and up to 3GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory. And now every MacBook Pro boasts both a FireWire 800 port and a double-layer burning SuperDrive. Ultimate speed, performance, and connectivity. To go. Thatís MacBook Pro.

So, I would like to hear some opinion's on apple's new move with its 17 inch MacBook Pro and how you think it will preform in the HD arena as well as how you might configure for your own HD editing suite as oposed to going with the Mac Pro.
