  • Processor: from 2.3 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 and 2.7 GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 to 2.4 GHz and 2.8 GHz options.
  • Hard drive: from 320 GB in the low-end configuration and 500 GB in the high-end configuration to 500 GB and 750 GB respectively.

15-inch MacBook Pro (US$1,799, US$2,199):
  • Standard processor: from 2.0 GHz and 2.2 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 to 2.2 GHz and 2.4 GHz options. (The high-end custom-to-order processor was 2.3 GHz and now 2.5 GHz option.)
  • For discrete graphics,
    (low end) AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256MB VRAM :arrow: AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512 MB VRAM
    (high end) AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB VRAM :arrow: AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1 GB VRAM
  • The previous build-to-order option of a 500 GB hard drive running at 7200 rpm has been bumped to a 750 GB drive.
