Apple MacBook Pro to Arrive with Processor Bump in Late 2011

October 24, 2011, By Leo Xavier

It appears like Apple will focus on the processor speed for the late 2011 release of their MacBook Pro. The latest rumor suggests that the company’s 15 and 17 inch models would come with an upgrade of 200MHz to the refreshed Intel Core i7.

According to 9to5mac, the company will bring out the entry 15 inch system with a 2.2GHz processor and will incorporate a 2.4GHz processor into the higher-end 15 and 17 inch systems.

The company’s 13-inch models are coming with modest update at just a 100MHz step up to 2.4GHz and 2.8GHz for their dual Core i5 parts.


Build-to-order configurations include 15 and 17 inch versions which are coming equipped with 2.5GHz Core i7s and 750GB, 7,200RPM hard drives.

The 13 inch model is said to be coming with more than just upgrades to the processor speed. The machines are coming with a boost to the same 500GB and 750GB drives as the larger versions. All the machines will still have 4GB of RAM.

Battery life is expected to remain the same. There is a slight chance of upgrade to graphics, even if just to video memory. You can expect the updated version to arrive in early November. We will keep you updated on the matter.

For now, head here to check out the other details of the rumor and specs of current MacBook Pros for comparison.
