Apple has today updated its MacBook Pro laptops and HardSoft have them to lease from today. All three models: 13-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch have had minor boosts. All spec changes and nothing cosmetic.
The 13-inch model now comes with either 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 or 2.8GHz Core i7 processors (up from 2.3GHz and 2.7GHz ). The entry level model now comes with a 500GB hdd disk (up from a 320GB disk) but nothing else has altered. Prices start at £8.80 plus VAT on a three years business lease that includes ownership option at the end for just £1.
As for the 15-inch model, processors offered now as standard are the 2.2GHz or 2.4GHz Core i7 chips (up from 2.0GHz and 2.2GHz) . Hard drive capacities are the same as before, but graphics get the options from the new iMac. Models have either an AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB ram (up from the 6490M with 256MB) or a Radeon HD 6770M GPU with 1GB memory (up slightly from the 6750M with the same memory). A special order 2.5Ghz is also available with a 2 week delivery time.
Then, the 17-inch model simply has one entry level spec, which is boosted from a 2.2GHz Core i7 CPU to a 2.4GHz version, and gets the same AMD Radeon HD 6770M GPU graphics chip from the 6750M as the 15-inch model. A special build 2.5Ghz is also available at an extra £2 per week on a three year lease. Lease prices include three years warranty as well. Nothing else has changed, including the price………….
