Apple upgraded their 15″ MacBook Pro, even before it shipped. The low-end version now ships with a 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo, while the high-end ships with a 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo, with an option to upgrade to 2.16GHz. While not an ultraportable, it’s a good sign of things to come when Apple does ship their first ultraportable Intel-based Macs.
Apple also released an OS update – Mac OS X 10.4.5.
On a related note, Apple may ship 10 million desktops and notebooks in 2006, according to Digitimes.
