大方の予測と期待どおり、アップルが新 MacBook Pro ラインナップを発表しました。最新モデルの特徴は13.3インチでデュアルコア Core i5 / i7、15と17インチではクアッドコアCore i7 のインテル第二世代Coreプロセッサを採用し、旧モデル比最大2倍速いこと。またインテルの新接続規格 Thunderbolt (開発名 Light Peak)を採用したこと。さらに内蔵カメラが解像度3倍の FaceTime HDになりフルHDの動画チャットも可能になったこと。13.3インチではインテルのプロセッサ統合グラフィック Intel HD Graphics 3000のみに、15と17ではAMD Radeon HD 6000台を採用し、NVIDIA GPUではなくなったのも注目点。

価格は13.3 インチが10万8800円から、15インチが15万8800円から、17インチが21万4800円から。いずれも現時点で1-2営業日以内出荷のステータスで販売中です。

新たに加わった Thunderbolt は、インテル Light Peak テクノロジを採用した新 I / O 規格 (追記:正確には、コードネーム Light Peak として発表されていた技術の正式なブランドが Thunderbolt。)。双方向に最大10Gbps ( FireWire の最大12倍、USB 2.0の最大20倍) と高速な転送速度でPCIe とダイレクトに接続します。またDisplayPort にも基づいているため、従来のDisplayPort 機器にも、アダプタを介してDVIや音声込みのHDMI にも、USBやFireWire 対応機器も、さらにギガビットLANやFibre Channelにも接続可能です。ポートは従来のミニDisplayPortと共用。たとえば高速なストレージを複数とディスプレイのように、周辺機器を6台まで接続可能。

Thunderbolt とおなじく全機種に搭載されたFaceTime HDカメラは、解像度が従来の3倍に増加。あわせて、iPhone 4 や iPod touch のFaceTimeとも直接接続できるFaceTimeアプリも正式版となり、Mac App Storeで115円で販売されています。
