Apple today unveiled a 17-inch version of its MacBook Pro ($2800) featuring a 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo processor that’s five times faster than the PowerBook G4. The new big-screen MBP sports a gorgeous one-inch thin aluminum enclosure, weighs 6.8 pounds, and has a screen that’s 36% brighter than the PowerBook. Like the 15-inch MBP introduced in January, the machine includes a built-in iSight video camera, Front Row media software with Apple Remote, and the innovative MagSafe power adapter. The new MBP also has a FireWire 800 port (yes!), a FireWire 400 port, three USB 2.0 ports, optical and digital audio input and output, built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), and integrated AirPort Extreme 54Mbps 802.11g WiFi.
