Apple updates MacBook Pros

Macbook Pro

Apple has upgraded its 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops, equipping the new models with new LED-backlit displays and Intel's latest Core 2 Duo mobile processors.

All models sport a built-in iSight video camera, as well as 802.11n Wi-Fi and Apple's MagSafe Power Adapter of course.

According to the official press release, each MacBook Pro:

…includes built-in 10/100/1000 BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet for high-speed networking, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), a FireWire® 800 and a FireWire 400 port, a backlit illuminated keyboard, an ExpressCard/34 expansion card slot for expansion solutions such as 3G wireless networking, and a DVI video output to connect up to a 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display.

Now that Parallel Desktop for Mac 3.0 is almost out, what with its 3D games and "Coherence" support for Windows XP, would you consider taking the plunge and switch over to the Mac?
