Apple today rolled out their new high-end MacBook Pro models, ranging in price from $1999 to $2799.

Apple MacBook Pro Models

Each of the Pros features a beautiful 1-inch thick aluminum case and is powered by a workhorse Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. The 15.4-inch model comes in either 2.2GHz or 2.4GHz variants, while the 17-inch model only comes with the faster processor. They all run on Intel’s Santa Rosa platform, which has a speedy 800MHz front side bus, but automatically switches speeds to conserve power as needed.

Both displays are widescreen, with the 15.4-inch display running at a 1440 x 900 resolution and the 17-inch featuring a whopping 1680 x 1050 pixels. If that’s not enough detail for you, Apple offers a $100 upgrade to full 1080p resolution. As an added bonus, these are the first Macs to feature LED backlights in their displays. You’ll also get your choice of a glossy or anti-glare surface for your screen.

All of the new models start with 2GB of RAM, expandable to 4GB and feature NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT video processing. The two more expensive models get 256MB of video RAM vs. the 128MB in the cheapest model. The new MacBook Pros also pack in Airport Extreme 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth for fast and flexible wireless connectivity.

If you’ve been holding out for a powerful portable Mac, now is as good a time as ever to pick one up.
