Apart from the iPhone 3G S and iPhone 3.0 which were showcased at the WWDC yesterday, there is also now a new MacBook Pro lineup. Aluminum unibody as you will probably have guessed, the MacBook Pro family will include 13-inch, 15-inch and 17 inch.
Improved features include 40% extended battery life, thanks to their lithium polymer built-in battery technology that can gest out a minimum of seven hours of work on a single charge. LED backlit displays will give better colour, multi-touch trackpad, an illuminated keyboard and guess what a new SD card (13 and 15-inch) or ExpressCard slot (17-inch), FireWire 800 port and new NVIDIA graphics display.
Readers here at GadgetLite who are keen gamers of games like WoW will definitely have heard of the Wolfking Warrior game pad keyboard a simple, easy to use device ideal for first-person-shooter (FPS) games and possibly any game you can imagine that suits it style. The aim of the unique design is essentially to help enhance his or her gameplay experience. But the Wolfking Warrior is now old, because there is now a new one out called the Warrior XXTREME gamepad (you could take a look at the Wolfking Warrior review first though, at TechRepublic).

Apple released a few MacBooks yesterday at the Apple Event, and the new 13-inch MacBook one has been the one that’s been most talked about. (Info on the new 15-inch MacBook Pro is on a separate post.)
Apple’s new 13-inch Macbook is thinner, lighter, durable and comes with the new, solid-aluminum unibody enclosure. As you can imagine already it is designed to be portable, slipping in your briefcase or backpack and pull it out wherever and whenever you need it.
The new 13-inch Macbook is powered by 2.0GHz or 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache running 1:1 with processor speed, 2GB (two 1GB SO-DIMMs) of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM; two SO-DIMM slots support up to 4GB and comes with 13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display with support for millions of colors, 8x slot-loading SuperDrive (DVD-R DL/DVD-RW/CD-RW), illuminated keyboard and 160GB or 250GB hard drive.
As you can see there’s no button at the trackpad, this new MacBook featured new trackpad doubles up as a button, just press down anywhere and consider it clicked, now that’s really fancy technology for a laptop! This new multi-trackpad supports two-finger scrolling, pinch, rotate, three-finger swipe, four-finger swipe, tap, double-tap, and drag capabilities and it is made from wear-resistant etched glass!
The two new MacBooks will cost differently according to the specs which you choose:
- 2.0GHz with 2GB DDR3 memory and 160GB hard drive
- 2.4GHz with 2GB DDR3 memory and 250GB hard drive
They will cost £949.00 and £1,149.00 respectively.
