Unfortunately, it still comes with a combo (no super-) drive standard. :(
The MacBook Pros now offer the option of a 2.6Ghz chip at a $250 premium and still top out with 4Gb of RAM and 250Gb hard drive options.
This refresh is similar to the silent Mac Mini refresh earlier this year which was made with little fanfare.
Obviously, much bigger announcements are on the horizon in the portable space from Apple. If we had to guess… we’d say Macworld is looking like a pretty likely time frame…but our timing sucks.
