It took a little longer than expected but Apple's finally upgraded the MacBook Pro line with Intel's latest 'Santa Rosa' Core 2 Duo processors.Other tweaking includes a power-sipping LED-backlit monitor for the 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz 15in models and an optional hi-res 1920x1200 display for the 2.4GHz 17in version, which gives a hefty 30 per cent extra in terms of desktop real estate on the standard 1680x1050 offering.But here's the real interesting part. In too go nVidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics cards, which it just so happens are HD copy protocol compatible. Add in that 1080p capable hi-res display and, hmm, could that be Blu-ray we see in the distance?EssentialsApple MacBook Pro 15in 2.2GHz/2.4GHz, 17in 2.4GHz Price: £1300/£1600, £1800 On sale: Now Contact: Apple Related stories: New MacBooks – now with extra oomph DIY Blu-ray for your Mac Apple's Leopard gets back in its cage
