New 13-Inch, 15-Inch MacBook Pro Spec Upgrade: Ivy Bridge, USB 3 [WWDC12]

Following a refresh to the MacBook Air lineup, Apple’s Phil Schiller unveiled a revamped MacBook Pro today at WWDC12. The updated machine boasts Intel Ivy Bridge 2.7GHz (turbo boosted up to 3.7GHz), USB 3.0, Nvidia GeForce GT 650m graphics, and 7 hours of battery life.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro spec upgrade costs $1199, while the 15-inch will sell for $1499. The 15-inch is offered in $1799 and $2199 models with beefier quad-core chips. The outwards design of these upgraded MacBook Pros have stayed the same.

This isn’t the revolutionary MacBook Pro the rumor mill suggested, but that’s because this notebook isn’t the only laptop Apple announced for the MacBook Pro lineup today.
