Storage

This model comes with a 750 GB of 6 Gb/s Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive. Originally, it was only 500 GB prior to its custom configuration.

Screen Size and Resolution

The MacBook Pro a1286 has a 15.4” screen color widescreen TFT active-matrix “glossy” display and 1440×900 resolution. This is reportedly upgradable to higher quality at an additional cost through custom configuration. This is LED-backlit as well.

Processor& Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

This MacBook Pro is powered by dual graphics processors – an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M and an “integrated” Intel HD Graphics that shares the same system memory.

By default, this model has a pre-installed MacOS X 10.7.3 (11D2097) 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7 3820QM (Ivy Bridge) processor. This system is ideal for multimedia and graphics performance. It is actually 20% better than its predecessor. This is perfect for high-definition video transcoding and gameplay.

Memory & Architecture

Any application installed on this MacBook Pro is guaranteed to operate faster with its 8 MB Level 3 cache plus a 5 GT/s front-side bus with 8 GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM (PC3-12800). This centers around a 64-Bit architecture.

This system is certainly capable of more as it can store many computational values. It also comes with additional security features that can prevent buggy and malicious drivers from a system.

Battery Life

The MacBook Pro comes with a 77.5 watt-hour lithium-polymer battery that provides 7 hours of wireless web use.

Upgradability

This MacBook Pro comes standard with 8 GB of RAM, but can be upgraded up to 16GB. The operating system of the MacBook Pro can also be upgraded from its pre-installed MacOS X 10.7.3 (11D2097) to up to current MacOS X. It can also host the Windows OS 7 (32-Bit) and be upgraded to as high as the Windows 8.1 (64-Bit). This MacBook Pro comes with dimensions of 0.95 x 14.35 x 9.82 in and a weight of 5.6 lbs (2.56 kg).
