We reported yesterday that Apple launched its new MacBook Pro range with a choice of Core i5 and Core i7 processors, with the 13-inch version still keeping its Intel Core 2 Duo CPU. While looking at all the latest spec details we can see that Apple has updated the Mini DisplayPort to support video and audio.
People will now be happy with this as you will now be able to connect the new MacBook Pro to your HDTV via its HDMI port and not have to connect a separate audio cable anymore. This will only benefit those that wish to play movies or watch home videos. Thanks to I4U for this tip.
Ars Technica learned from Italian Mac blog that some HDMI adapters will not work with the new MacBook Pros, they need to be 1.1a version or later or they will not be compatible. Just make sure that you check for this before you purchase one.
