MacBook Pros get a CPU upgrade for free

By Justin Mann on
Purchasers of the $1999 and $2499 models of the MacBook Pro are in for a pleasant surprise. A free upgrade. No special offer, no rebate, just the fact that machines will have faster processors than initially advertised. The lower priced model originally was spec'ed for a 1.67GHz Intel Core Duo and the more pricey one a 1.83GHz. Now, it will be 1.83GHz for the lower priced and 2.0GHz for the higher priced. Best of all, no changes in retail pricing now and none are planned. As the article states, this definitely could be a way for Apple to help make up for sales lower than predicted, buying both publicity and getting more interest from end users, which can perhaps convince people who might buy a lower priced Windows machine to try the MacBook Pro.
