As the sixth generation MacBook Pro, the 15.4'' version is a slimmer, faster, less costly laptop from Apple than its predessors. Upgrades include better graphics with the NVIDIA 9400M integrated graphics, which offers a great gaming experience. Although most Intel integrated graphics options have greatly reduced performance compared to dedicated options, NVIDIA has broken that trend with the 9400M. The MacBook Pro also handles 720P movie decoding with ease, perfect for a home theatre hub with a miniDisplay Port to HDMI adapter. The MacBook Pro also offers a headphone jack and a new SD-card slot. Physically, the laptop back cover has been replaced with a seamless, smooth aluminum cover with no sign of battery. The battery has actually been built inside and offers up to 8 hours of battery life.

Another cool feature is the handy battery gauge mounted on the side of the laptop. Pressing the button lights up a number of eight LED's showing the current level of the battery - thus preventing you from dashing out with an uncharged laptop. In general, the 6th generation MacBook Pro comes with a lot of attractive upgrades that would interest consumers.
