    I just googled and it was a while back. I guess I've been away from the scene for too long.

    Tiny speed boost for $200 bucks. Not a bad deal for apple. Better off saving your money for more RAM or an SSD.

    I was surprised that none of the CPU option were quad core. I guess the sandy bridge update will fix that. All the PC makers just refreshed with i7 2630 quads in units around $1400 so hopefully Apple will see the light.

    Cheers,

    I've been eying a Lenovo for a little while and waiting to hear more about it.

    Nice addition to have them, althought it was done a while back, but the fact that they're giving so many options for the macbook pro's may be a good indicator for the next revision, hopefully some nice quads all around :cool:

    I got one of them back in December, blazing fast and even out performs some of the i7 Quad cores out there

    Not too surprising, Apple did not make a big deal about it. If you weren't looking for it and didn't see the news on Macrumors.com (It was a "Page 2" item) or another Mac site then it would be easy to miss.

    The 2.8GHz i7 MacBook Pro option was added on October 17th, 2010 after the "Back to Mac" event where the new MacBook Airs were announced. It was a "silent update" to the line and Apple did not publicly mention this upgrade option availability, but silently added it to the site that day. It has been there since October. It's available as an upgrade option for all top-line 15" and 17" i7 models.
