15-inch Apple MacBook Pro MD318LL/A (Late 2011)
Description:

The Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro is a powerful notebook computer with an innovative aluminum unibody design. It is loaded with advanced power management features and an integrated battery, which work together to provide up to 7 hours of wireless web browsing. You may notice an unfamiliar logo next to one of the ports on the left side of the system. This is Thunderbolt, a high-speed interface that can move data at an amazing 10Gbps, which is double that of USB 3.0. The Thunderbolt port also doubles as a display output because it shares the same physical form factor as a Mini DisplayPort. You can daisy-chain up to six devices, so you'll be able to connect high-speed external storage and an external Apple LED Cinema display via the same port! The computer's 15.4" display features LED backlight technology and a glossy finish. Its 1400 x 900 native resolution gives you ample screen space to work with. You'll be able to output to an external display at up to 2560 x 1600 via Thunderbolt. Any Mini DisplayPort-compatible display will plug in without the need of an adapter. If you have a display with DVI, VGA or HDMI input, you'll only need to purchase an adapter cable (i.e., HDMI-to-Mini DisplayPort) for connection. FEATURES: Next-Generation Quad-Core Intel Processor - The 15.4" MacBook Pro now features a 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 processor. With 3.6GHz Turbo Boost support and 6MB of cache, this CPU allows the computer to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation The Graphics Performance You Need, When You Need It - The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor is now included across the MacBook Pro lineup and handles the things you do every day. It encodes video quickly and makes HD video calls with FaceTime possible. It also decodes efficiently so you get long playback time for DVDs and iTunes movi
