Many of the rumored MacBook Pro features have materialized. The new Apple MacBook Pro has two NVIDIA GPUs, glass trackpad and a sturdy new aluminum case design.
The MacBook Pro runs NVIDIA GeForce 9400M by default to get the most battery life (5 hours) or you can switch into turbo mode to use the fast NVIDIA 9600M GT still giving you 4 hours of fun.

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro at only 0.95-inches thin and weighing just 5.5 pounds offers ultimate performance and extensive expansion features in a remarkably portable design.
Starting at $1,999, the MacBook Pro uses the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors available, running up to 2.8 GHz, and a new graphics architecture that allows users to switch between the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor for better battery life and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT discrete graphics processor for higher performance.

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air include a next generation, industry-standard Mini DisplayPort to connect with the new Apple LED Cinema Display featuring a 24-inch LED-backlit widescreen display with a built-in iSight video camera, mic and speakers in an elegant, thin aluminum and glass enclosure.

The new MacBook Pro is available in two models: a 2.4 GHz model with a 250GB 5400 rpm hard drive and a 2.53 GHz model with a 320GB 5400 rpm hard drive.
The new MacBook Pro ships today from the Apple Store.
