MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i7 M620 CPU: Jump in performance

We know that Apple is to upgrade its line of MacBook Pro laptops, and the recent news that Apple is running low on current stock is proof of that. There is to be a number of upgrades to the new version of the Pro, the most-important being to its processor.

We have recently learned that the MacBook pro will go from an Intel Core 2 Duo processor to a more powerful i3, i5, and i7. The best of these is the Intel Core i7 M620 CPU, and offers the biggest jump in performance, this will be made available on the 17-inch version.

According to Christian Zibreg from Geek, there was an unofficial benchmark test that showed that the upgraded flagship MacBook Pro running on the new Intel Core i7 M620 CPU showed a huge increase in its performance. Apple had hoped to offer this upgrade sooner, but rivals had purchased the entire stock of i7 processors.

Recent rumors suggest that the new upgraded version of the Apple MacBook pro will be released today — we will keep you informed.

I just spent 2400$ for a new 15' i7 and it is money well spent.. i don't get a virus in return, a standard os unlike linux, i can focus on what i need to do.. software development.. not maintain the box, open the lid, write code, close the lid.. i buy time and peace of mind..

Theses are on sale at apple.com now. I configured one similar to the MSI 1656 I bought from btotech.com 2 months ago. It has a 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 1680×1050 15.4" display, 8GB RAM, 512GB NVIDIA 250M GPU, and an SDHC card slot. Difference is, mine has the faster 820-QM CPU, not the 620 Apple is using, an expresscard/54 slot, plus an eSATA port (no way to do this on the 15.4" macbook now that they removed the expresscard/34 slot. Mine was ~$800 less. It's fast enough to run OS-X in a VM just fine.

I personally think all this hype is too much! This story seems very similar to the stories of the illusive MBP 2010 being released earlier this year. It has been forcasted by “Apple insiders” that the New MBP would be released in almost every past month this year.
My advice is; “Don’t get your hopes up, like i have so many times this year!”

-But Who knows, maybe this Anonymous person is right, we’ll just have to wait and see.

It is also believed that the high-end 15" MBP will get the option for a core i7.
