Computer Business Apple Releases New Laptop

On Monday, computer business giant Apple released its new MacBook Pro notebook featuring a 17-inch screen. The computer company says this new MacBook is only one-inch in thickness with a weight of 6.8 pounds. The new MacBook is a 2/16 GHz Intel Core Duop processor. It also offers 1 Gbyte of DDR2 SDRAM memory, an iSight Webcam built in and a 68-watt hour lithium battery with 5.5 hours of power.

Computer business Apple runs the Mac OS X 10.4.6 “Tiger” and will ship next week, with a retail cost of $2,799. The new notebooks was released a week after Apple stated that its computer sales had been slowed by the transition to Intel processors. This brief pause in the sales of Intel-based computer was due to important third-party software, including Adope Photoshop and its unavailability to those with Intel Macs. Reports also stated that Intel Macs were much slower than other computers.

Apple faces a challenge in the computer business market because of it is priced at more than twice the cost of comparable systems made by Dell, Lenovo and Hewlett-Packard. All these companies have started selling dual-core notebooks with Intel technology for under $1,000.
