“The new MacBook Pro is slightly thinner than its predecessor, but as soon as you touch it, you’ll notice that it feels as solid as a rock. That’s due to Apple’s groundbreaking precision unibody construction process, which mills the entire enclosure from a single solid block of aluminum. It’s completely smooth, totally seamless, and noticeably more rigid and durable than previous models, yet it weighs about the same, 5.5 pounds,” Bob Levitus reports for The Houston Chronicle.
“Another big change is that new MacBook Pros, along with all other Apple notebooks, now have ultrathin glossy LED-backlit displays. The new screen is thinner and brighter, and with its gorgeous, richly saturated colors and deep dark blacks, it may be the best-looking notebook display I’ve ever seen,” Levitus reports.
“Furthermore, LED backlighting is more energy- efficient than the previous cold cathode fluorescent lamp technology, which means better battery life. Finally, I was pleased to learn that these displays are both arsenic- and mercury-free, making them greener than ever,” Levitus reports.
