The release of Apple‘s newly upgraded MacBook Pro unveiled a wide range of tweaks and improvements to the popular notebook. For one, they will all be furnished with new Intel i5 and i7 processors, except the 13-inch models which still have Core2Duo technology. The change means the 15-inch and 17-inch models will be up to 50% faster than previous models by way of the new i5 and i7 chipsets.
One of the most publicized changes to the new MacBook Pro is the reported 10 hrs. of battery life it features. The lithium-polymer battery is apparently bigger than those that were previously used and is said to be able to charge up to 1000 times — nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries.
The battery in the MacBook Pro notebooks is made to be smart. It’s built with a chip that talks to each of its cells to determine their precise condition. The chip shares this information with the computer. And the computer uses an advanced algorithm to make delicate adjustments to the charging current, varying it to suit the changing conditions inside the cells. This Adaptive Charging reduces the wear and tear on the battery and gives it a much longer lifespan than ever before — up to five years.
