Apple MacBook Pro

Announced in January 2006, alongside the iMac Core Duo, the MacBook Pro replaced the aging PowerPC G4 based PowerBook range.

As well as the change of processor, this machine moved to a SATA rather than IDE drive (the first Apple laptop to do so), and replaced the PowerBooks PCMCIA expansion slot with the new ExpressCard. Airport Extreme and Bluetooth are built in and a SuperDrive is standard on all models. However the FireWire 800 port was dropped on the first 15.4" version, leaving just FireWire 400 and USB 2.0. The 17" and subsequent 15.4" MacBook Pro has a FireWire 800 port.
