The Mac rumour mill was a'buzzin' all yesterday about new MacBook Pros, and lo and behold, they were right. The most notable change is the move to faster and latest Intel Penryn mobile processors inside (up to a 2.6 GHz, with 6MB of shared L2 cache) and the latest NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processors, now with up to 512MB of video memory, and Apple's Multi-Touchtrackpad feature (finger gesture command input like the iPhone) which was first introduced in MacBook Air.
