Apple has taken April by storm so far what with the iPad launch and iPhone OS 4.0 announcement, and now its gone and unleashed a spec update for the MacBook Pro.

Updated specs can be found on all of the 13-, 15- and 17-inch models, with Intel’s new Core super-speedy i5 and i7 processors landing in the 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pros respectively, and Intel's Core 2 Duo in the 13-inch model.

Boosted battery life of up to 10 hours arrives on the 13-inch MacBook Pro, with 8-9 hours on the larger models, while hard drives are now available up to 500GB and solid-state drives offered in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB options.

The entire range has also seen an increase in RAM, with the standard memory now starting at 4GB, and there's also a new, improved trackpad with added multitouch controls.

Prices start from £999. Check out the full specs on Apple’s website, and let us know if you're tempted to upgrade below.
