Apple quietly updated Macbook pro lineup specs with little improvement over CPU speed, new graphic card and by offering larger disk space with 500 GB HDD at the same cost.
There are three types in the MacBook lineup, 13 inch, 15 inch and 17 inch.
13 Inch MacBook Pro :-
Starting with the entry level 13 inch in MacBook Pro, it features the max specs of an Intel i5 2.4 GHz processor, 8 GB DDR 3 SRAM ( 1333 MHZ), 750 GB SATA hard drive and 500 GB Solid state hard drives. The faster version of 13 inch MacBook in contrast with the entry level MacBook pro just features a faster Intel i7 2.8 GHz processor and all the other specs are same.
15 Inch MacBook Pro :-
As for the 15 inch Macbook, the slower version features an Intel i7 2.2 GHz processor, 512 MB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU and the faster version features a faster Intel i7 2.4 GHz and Intel i7 2.5 GHz processor options, faster GPU of 1 GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 6770M. The rest features for both 15 inch MacBook pro are same as that of 13 inch MacBook.
17 Inch MacBook Pro :-
The 17 inch giant MacBook Pro has two processor options, which are Intel i7 2.4 GHz and 2.5 GHz. Rest specs are same with the specs of the faster 15 inch Macbook Pro.
These are minor improvements over the previous lineup MacBook pro. Next year in Spring the lineup for MacBook will feature the second generation of Intel processors which may bring the real performance improvement.

All the Macbook pro lineup has 7 hours of battery and all of them feature aluminum unibody design, Thunderbolt port, FaceTime HD camera, OS X Lion, backlit keyboard and multi-touch trackpad with gesture support.
