New Macbook and Macbook pro Benchmarks

Published Friday, October 24, 2008 5:32 PM

 

The new Macbooks and Macbook pro are out and they are looking pretty slick. They now have the new NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor in them which is a lot better then came in them before. They have glossy screen on both the Macbook and the Macbook pro which did not have it before. They now have the low profile keys and the multi touch track pad. The screen now has a black mat around it which I think is very nice. I have listed so configurations below so enjoy.
