MacBook Pro 1,1 and MacBook Pro 2,2

MacBook Pro 1,1 is the line of laptops, designed and manufactured by Apple. Introduced on January 10, 2006, it has been manufactured till late 2008, with three updates arriving during the time, as well as one addition. The first version of this model was mostly a carryover from the PowerBook G4, but Apple used Intel Core CPUs instead of PowerPC G4 chips. It came with ExpressCard/34 slots. The first generation 15-inch models had two USB 2.0 ports and one FireWire 400 port.

MacBook Pro 1,1 (15-Inch, Original or Early 2006) and MacBook Pro 2,2 (15-Inch, Late 2006)

The original (1st generation) 15-inch MacBook Pro was announced by Steve Jobs at the Macworld Conference & Expo.  1 inches (0.25 cm) thinner. Improvements and changes from the PowerBook G4 include a built-in iSight webcam. MagSafe, a magnetic power connector designed to detach easily when yanked, has been also included.
The MacBook Pro was the first portable Mac to use Intel Processors, and it included a dual-core processor, a first for an Apple portable.

Though Apple announced the 1st generation of its MacBook Pro line (MacBook Pro 1,1) at 1.67 and 1.83 GHz, this mode was actually shipped with 1.83 or 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo processors, with a 2.16 GHz processor available as a BTO option.

Apple speed-bumped both configurations in May 2006 to 2.0 GHz and 2.16 GHz, respectively (without changing models’ classification). At the same date, the computer was made available with a glossy screen as a BTO option.

In October 2006, Apple enhanced the existing model, making 2.16 GHz a standard configuration and adding 2.33 as an optional version (BTO, short for By The Order). Apple used to define the new version as MacBook Pro 2,2. The 2.33 GHz configuration of MacBook Pro 2,2 was optional at the time of its launch.

The original MacBook Pro 1,1 and MacBook Pro 2,2 did not come with FireWire 800 or S-Video ports, but FireWire 800 was added in the first revision. S-Video capability was attained through the use of a DVI to S-Video adapter. External displays with up to a 2,560 × 1,600 pixel resolution were supported through a dual-link DVI port, and all revisions included a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port, Bluetooth 2.0, and 802.11a/b/g. Besides, later revisions included support for the draft 2.0 specification of 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR for wireless communication. Two USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 400 port, ExpressCard/34, Gigabit Ethernet, DVI, audio line in/out sum up the connectivity options.

MacBook Pro 1,1, as well as MacBook Pro 2,2, also feature an optic disk drive, of which there are two options: Combo drive (8× DVD read, 24× CD-R and 10× CD-RW recording) and optional SuperDrive (8× DVD-DL discs reads. 4× DVD+/-R & RW recording, 24× CD-R and 10× CD-RW recording). The model has an inbuilt iSight video camera, two stereo speakers placed under the keyboard for multimedia and AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g) port on Qualcomm Atheros AR5007 chipset.  MacBook Pro 15-inch runs on OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard”.

Miscellanea

  • Apple chose the MacBook Pro 1st genertaion as the second model to be announced during the Apple–Intel transition, after the iMac.
  • MacBook Pro of early 2006 lived but a very short life. The first Intel-powered portable by Apple was discontinued in a month on the St. Valentine’s Day. The affix ‘Mac’ was chosen to highlight the belonging to the Macintoshes family.
  • When Apple introduced the MacBook Air Pro line, it abbreviated the computer MBP, but later the company has never used this abbreviation.
  • Apple ostensibly changed the name for its professional portable computer from PowerBook because Apple decided that all Macintoshes should have Mac in their product names. Besides, the MacBook Pro no longer used a PowerPC processor.
  • As compared to the latest version of the PowerBook G4 MacBook Pro got a thinner case, a built-in iSight camera, improved wireless reception, a larger screen and the new more robust “MagSafe” power connector. The laptop also features the Apple’s Front Row home media center software with a remote control that was to be purchased separately. Speaking of multimedia, the laptop’s optic disk drives won’t support dual-layer DVD+R disks.
  • MacBook Pro was the last laptop to feature an ExpressCard/34 slot, other generations come with their hardware soldered.
  • The Intel Core Duo demonstrates worse performance than Core 2 Duo, especially in multitasking, where hyper-threading is required. Besides, it features the 32-bit architecture unlike Core 2 Duo that sports the 64-bit architecture.
  • The first MacBook Pro had build-to-order iterations which featured a glossy screen, 120 GB of storage and the CPU with the top speed of 2.16 GHz. The ordinary models featured either 1.83 GHz or 2.0 GHz with 80 GB and 100 GB of storage respectively. When other updates followed, the CPU speed was the first to be boosted.
  • When first introduced, the MacBook Pro did not come with FireWire 800 or S-Video ports. FireWire 800 was added in the next 15-inch model revision.
