Apple keeping up their promise of releasing a new product every year, they have launched their updated MacBook Pro Line notebooks that uses next-generation Intel Corp. (INTC) processors and the chip giant's high-speed data-transfer technology. So far this technology has only been launched in Apple's MacBook Pro Line notebook.
The new computers use Intel's super-fast PC connection technology, which allows users to transfer files at 10 gigabits per second. Intel says that at that speed a user could transfer a typical Blu-ray movie in less than 30 seconds.
All models have a new FaceTime HD camera with triple the resolution of the previous generation for widescreen video calls.
The MacBook Pro will have prices ranging between $1,199 to $2,500 for bigger sizes like 17inch.
Apple said its new MacBook Pro line is up to twice as fast as the previous generation, using the latest dual-core and quad-core Intel Core processors that combine graphics and computing on the same piece of silicon.
Intel's new processor will widely adapt a name "Thunderbolt" from it's initial "Light Peak". Intel executives said are still talking with other PC makers about the technology and that they expect Thunderbolt to appear in other PCs by early next year.
Intel, which has been working for years on laser-based communications, unveiled Light Peak in late 2009. The company has predicted Light Peak--which combines high-speed data transfer and high-definition display on a single cable--could be upgraded to run at 100 gigabits within the decade.
In the meantime, Intel also has discussed a variant of Light Peak that uses copper wiring and electrical pulses rather than glass fibers and lasers--a technology more easily adapted for laptop computers.
