On a very expected and rumored release, Apple today unveiled new MacBook and MacBook Pro models that offer speedier CPUs, (now up to 2.6GHz with 6MB of shared L2 cache), larger hard drives (up to 300GB), improved graphics memory in higher-end MB Pros (up to 512MB GeForce), and last but not least, the MacBook Pro receives the multi-touch trackpad that first debuted on the Air.

The speed bump on the MacBook line was less expected since they had received an update just recently. But for the same prices Apple is giving you faster 2.1GHz and 2.4GHz processors, more HDD capacity in the 120-160GB range, and 2GB RAM standard on higher-end models.

As much as this could be considered good news for anyone about to buy an Apple laptop (same prices, better hardware), many were expecting bigger changes especially in the MacBook Pro line that hasn't received many cosmetic upgrades since early 2006.
