8 Jun 2009 the MacBook Pro once again turned into a big family, got in touch with SD, moved to non-standard battery and much cheaper. The company operated “the disciples of the sorcerer”, and the chance to make incredible hype (was what) they missed… Like once in many, many years before, the MacBook Pro again included models with three screen sizes. Different and very similar.
HYIP can be arranged for most of these batteries. Well-meaning emphasizing their tenure, is very timely and promising assistance in the utilization of computers after the development of the resource of their non-standard batteries, “disciples of the sorcerer” (Tim cook, Phil Schiller, Bob Mansfield and others) unwittingly caused the company irreparable damage.
Assistance in the disposal – it is something from the series “we will bury you on the highest level, you will enjoy.” The motivation is clear, any manufacturer it is very important to sell more manufactured goods, and trade-in came up with very intelligent people, but it must be done correctly and on time.
Since the beginning of the 90s, barely laptops ceased to be exotic, all the manufacturers deliberately exaggerate their time offline battery. Usually this was done correctly, is guaranteed to win the inevitable lawsuits. In some (carefully designed and tested) conditions charge laptop really enough for the stated period.
Over time, this all used and perceived as something natural. Stories about 7 or 8 hours of battery life and 1,000 recharge cycles, no one believed. But about the bad (tenure batteries) believed once and for all.
I don’t know how would this event Steve, but it seems to me that he would start with a moderate penance – say, they lied. So it was decided. Companies “so-and-So of Hotplug company” in 1995 promised so-and-so, “so-and-so Inc.” doing that, and Apple too…
Then, focusing attention on the positive aspects of being changed, and again making her believe in the exclusivity and integrity of Apple to tell us all that it was necessary and beneficial. The new battery was indeed better, and kept charge of the promised time or so.
The documentation was not written about “non-replaceable” battery, but about “non-user”.

SD memory card Secure Digital
All models and MacBook Pro, released on 8 June 2009, with the exception of the 17-inch has a slot for SD. A 15 inch it replaced the expansion slot ExpressCard/34. Apple was a barrage of indignant letters: many believed that without this slot MacBook Pro unworthy of the title “Pro”.
SD cards have been used in photo and video cameras, ebooks, GPS navigators and other portable devices. About native support for these cards, Apple has asked since the late 90’s when they first came out. Apple recommended to read the SD card using one of the USB fingerprint readers manufactured by several companies.
The new 17-inch MacBook Pro retained the ExpressCard/34. 15 – inch and 17-inch models without special problems it was possible to simultaneously place and ExpressCard/34, and SD slot, but… the Designers were against: it would be nice.
The family now consisted of 2 options MacBook Pro 13.3 inch (about them and about where they came from, see below), the prices of which started with the 1 $ 199. And also two models of 15-inch MacBook Pro (budget of 1 699 $ and “normal”, 1 $ 999) and one 17-inch model 2 $ 499.

The MacBook Unibody has changed more than any other models available on 8 June. The battery is specially designed for them, using the entire unoccupied volume inside the case for energy storage, non-standard and fixed – gave him up to 5 hours of battery life under normal (not synthetic, as before).
Screen with 24-bit color. In the previous displays, the color was 18-bit. To the naked eye this difference is not visible, especially if it is to compensate for the brightness of the glossy screen, but now it was done, and the colors used are increased by 60%…
