Another Tuesday, another Apple update. This time it is the big guns – The MacBook and MacBook Pro.

Apple today announced long-awaited upgrades for both its MacBook and MacBook Pro portables, adding Intel’s 45 nanometer Penryn architecture for its Core 2 Duo processors. All systems now include the larger Level 2 cache, SSE4 media instructions, and reduced power consumption of the new chips. As the flagship, the MacBook Pro now receives the multi-touch trackpad from the MacBook Air and also adds the first LED backlighting option for the 17-inch display; choosing the high-resolution, 1920×1200 screen also adds the more color-accurate backlight and potentially extends battery life. Video memory has also been doubled across the line.

I’m giving some consideration to selling my 2.4Ghz, 7200RPM 160GB Apple MacBook Pro and upgrading. Wonder what they are going for now? $2500 on eBay. Tempting.

I think the new laptops are worth it, new CPU and new GFX cards, 512MB on the card? Yes please.
