In terms of performance, it is proven that Apple computers do perform better in various aspects. For instance, its multitasking speed and the speed in running heavy applications are much faster than non-Apple laptops with the same specs. This is mainly due to the Mac operating system (this model comes with the latest Snow Leopard OS).

This set of specs would be more than sufficient for the average PC user. Some of the new features found on this laptop include a Mini DisplayPort and a SD memory card reader.
Besides the upgrade in features, there are also various upgrades in the design of the new Apple MacBook Pro MB990LL/A. It now sports a sleek uni-body aluminum casing that feels really solid and looks great. They keyboard is illuminated and the 13-inch edge-to-edge screen is a LED back-lit display.

The battery on this laptop can last up to 7 hours before it needs to be recharged. Most importantly, the Apple MacBook Pro MB990LL/A is now more affordable than ever before.
