The 20 Coolest Notebooks Of 2010 (So Far)


Apple MacBook Pro

Apple’s spring update to its MacBook Pro lineup included the addition of Intel’s 2.66GHz Core i7 M620 CPU and Nvidia’s GeForce GT 330M discrete GPU. That adds a good deal of extra oomph to MacBook Pro notebooks, such as the 15.4-inch model we like in particular.

The MacBook Pro remains a marvel of industrial design as per Apple’s raison d’etre, weighing in at 5.5 pounds and less than an inch thick. You’re getting 4 GB of DDR3 memory, a 500-GB hard drive and, of course, Apple’s Snow Leopard version of its in-house operating system.
