Apple's all-new MacBook Pro packs new NVIDIA GPUs, glass trackpad

This is a follow up post from my post the other day regarding the meeting at cupertino the new line of Macbook Pro is now released. And it only proves that the leaked photos of Macbook is true. The rumored Macbook Touch Screen was not included in the release. Anyway it might be released soon. Who knows ?

Apple’s also put in some effort on slimming down the computer, bringing it down to a mere 0.95-inches thick (though at 5.5 pounds it’s a hair heavier than the original)

The specs as per Engadget

the specs. Apple’s using NVIDIA’s new 9400M GPU + chipset 1-2 punch for integrated graphics, supplemented by 9600M GT switchable discreet graphics chip for heavy lifting, and pumping out those graphics over a Mini DisplayPort connector, if you’d like to supplement the LED backlit screen. As expected there’s an SSD option, with drive accessible underneath the battery. The 15.4-inch base model retails for $1999, with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM and both GPUs. Step up to $2499 and you get a faster CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD. The 17-inch MacBook Pro comes in a similar configuration with a 2.6GHz processor, starting at $2799, but sans the redesign and GPU love. Hit the jump for a breakdown of the configurations.

Below are some specification taken during the conference
