The first announcement from WWDC is in, and its a 15-inch MacBook. Like the MacBook Air, the device sports a sealed battery, however it will provide up to 7 hours of charge, about 2 hours more than previous models. Apple is claiming the battery should be good for about 1,000 recharge cycles, equaling about 5 years of life for average use.
Interestingly enough, Apple has done away with the ExpressCard slot, instead opting to include an SD slot. This puppy will also be blazing fast, with a 3.06GHz option and capability for 8GB of RAM, the most ever for a Mac portable. Hard drive capacities of 500GB in standard drives and 256GB in SSD would be offered.
The 15-inch models would start at $1,699.
13-inch models are also being updated with an improved screen, sealed battery, and SD card slots. It’s also been upgraded to a MacBook Pro… hmm one begins to wonder…
