Along with the release of the MacBook, Apple bumped up the processor speed of the 15-inch MacBook Pro on Tuesday. The 1.83GHz model has been upgraded to 2.0GHz, and the 2.0GHz model is now 2.16GHz. The prices remain the same at US$1,999, and $2,499 respectively. The glossy display, which is standard on the MacBook and offers greater color saturation, is also a free built-to-order option on the 15 and 17-inch MacBook Pro. The Apple Store shows the faster MacBook Pro models as shipping in 24 hours.
