    Apple MacBook Pro (Core i7) mid-2010 unboxing

    Officially launched yesterday, Apple’s Core i7 15-inch MacBook Pro has arrived on the SlashGear testbench and is crying out for an unboxing.  Sticking to the same unibody aluminum style of its predecessors, the new MacBook Pro throws out the old Core 2 Duo CPUs and replaces them with a choice of Core i5 and Core i7 chips paired with NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics.

    Our particular review unit has the 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 processor paired with 4GB of DDR memory and GeForce GT 330M  512MB graphics. There’s also Intel’s HD graphics with Automatic Switching Graphics (ASG) between the two, a 500GB  5,400rpm hard-drive and slot-loading DVD burner.


    Other specs include:

    * 15.4-inch widescreen LED-backlit 1440 x 900 glossy display;
    * Mini DisplayPort (VGA, DVI and HDMI adapters sold separately);
    * AirPort Extreme 802.11n wireless networking and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR;
    * Gigabit Ethernet port;
    * iSight video camera;
    * Two USB 2.0 ports; one FireWire 800 port
    * SD card slot
    * Audio line in (analog/digital); Audio line out/headphone (analog/digital)
    * Glass Multi-Touch trackpad and illuminated keyboard
    * Built-in, 77.5WHr lithium polymer battery

    We’ll be putting the new MacBook Pro through its paces with some benchmarking and real-world impressions, and have a  full review for you very soon.  Until then, enjoy the unboxing video and hands-on gallery!
