It has the specifications to be one of the most powerful tablets on the market. But it’s price of $799 makes it more expensive more than the Apple iPad, which is a bad news.

Specifications of HP Slate includes a 8.9 inch, 1024Γ—600 resolution screen, and a 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor. Earlier we shared the main specifications and basic overview of HP Slate.

Apple Unveils Core i5 and Core i7 MacBook Pros

Apple recently unveiled New MacBook Pro models with faster processors and new Nvidia graphics.

One with Intel Core i5 Processor and another one with i7 Processor.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro still stays with Core 2 Duo and the price is also not changed I believe.

Even though these MacBook Pro models are powered by Nvidia graphics, they will also use Apple’s graphics switching technology.

Apple updated three New MacBook Pro models. They are listed below.

  • 13-inch MacBook Pro
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro
  • 17-inch MacBook Pro

New MacBook Pro

All the three have different configurations. I have listed them below.

1. 13-inch MacBook Pro

13-inch MacBook Pro comes with 4GB memory and Nvidia’s GeForce 320M graphics processor. They have two configurations.

1st Model : 2.4GHz processor and 250GB hard drive for $1,199.

2nd Model : 2.66GHz processor and 320GB hard drive for $1,499.

2. 15-inch MacBook Pro

15-inch MacBook Pro comes with three different configurations.

1st Model : 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 with the Nvidia GeForce GT 330M and 320GB hard drive for $1,799.
