MacBook Pro update

by Giles Turnbull

As widely expected, there are new MacBook Pro machines available as of today.

All three models come with 2GB RAM, and can support up to 4GB. They all come with a Superdrive. The upper two have a NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB SDRAM graphics card; the lower model makes do with 128MB. The 17-incher offers an optional 1920x1200 resolution.

And, best of all - LED backlit displays on the 15-inch models, and the Core 2 Duo processor is (according to Engadget - I've not seen anything official from Apple about this yet) using the Santa Rosa chipset.

Tempting. Very tempting.

"And, best of all - LED backlit displays on the 15-inch models"

I'd like to know what type of LED backlighting is used on this model. Samsung has a white LED backlit panel which only covers 45% of the NTSC color gamut. On the other hand, they also have RGB LED panels which cover more than 100% of NTSC.
