Apple updates MacBook Pro line-up

Apple today updated the MacBook Pro line with faster Intel processors, new Nvidia CPUs and up to ten hours of battery life.

The 13-incher gets an Nvidia GeForce 320M GPU for up to 80 percent faster graphics and Apple's now familiar built-in 1,000 cycle battery which the company reckons it has stretched to ten hours.

The 15-inch and 17-inch models feature Intel Core i5 and i7 processors respectively and automatic graphics switching technology that toggles between the GeForce GT 330M and the on-processor Intel HD GPU.

The 13-incher comes with either a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 250GB hard drive priced at £999, or a 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 320GB hard drive priced at £1,249.
