Apple has refreshed their MBP line with faster, powerful, and larger internals. All Mac Book Pro series from 13″ to 17″ will get a faster Sandy Bridge CPU, upgraded GPU (15″ & 17″), and larger hard drive (13″). All these boost at no cost. So you will still be getting these lines at the same price but more powerful to the previous.
