Moments ago, Phil Schiller announced the release of a brand-new MacBook Pro during his keynote address (Engadget Live Blog) at the start of the WWDC (MacRumors). This new Pro will have a 15 inch screen, and a built-in battery with a 7 hour charge. Apple claims that a 'typical user' will see roughly 5 years of use before they see any diminished battery capacity. The new batteries are supposed to last more than 1,000 charges and are billed as much more 'eco-friendly' than other notebook batteries.

This new Pro is going to be the fastest netbook Apple has ever released. It's got a 3.06 Ghz Dual Core CPU, options for up to 8 GB of RAM, up to a 500 GB hard drive or up to a 250 GB solid state drive. Those are some impressive specs, and the price is...well, less excessive than you'd imagine. $1699 is the starting price, although some builds could cost as much as $2,229.

In addition, the 17” MacBook Pro is being updated today. Now it has a 2.8GHz CPU and a 500GB HD, and it ships today. The 13” MacBook has also been updated; now it is a MacBook Pro as well, it has a new display, an SD card slot, and a better battery. Prices start at $1,199.
