The more powerful version of the 15" MacBook Pro brings quite a bit to the table. Besides the speedier CPU, most notable is the considerably faster graphics card. The GPU here can run current games with high graphics settings and thanks to its 1GB of...

Externally, this 2011 revision to the 2008-design Apple MacBook Pro isn’t even evolutionary, since there’s no visible change - save a lightning legend logo by the Mini DisplayPort connector. But since that port is actually a Thunderport...
