With a black and silver design reminiscent of the \n models, the "Unibody" MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" (Late 2008) models introduced an all new case design milled from a single block of aluminum providing greater strength and a superior finish than previous systems.\nThe Apple MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 15-Inch (Unibody - Late 2008) features a 45 nm "Penryn" 2.4 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P8600), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 250 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, an 8X DL "SuperDrive", dual graphics processors -- a NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with 256 MB of dedicated GDDR3 SDRAM \n a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory, and an LED-backlit 15.4" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1440x900 native resolution).\nConnectivity includes an ExpressCard/34 slot, AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, one Firewire "800" port, optical digital/analog audio in/out, and a new "Mini DisplayPort" that supports an external display at 2560x1600.\nIn addition to the new case design, compared to the "Early 2008/Penryn" models that these replaced, the "Unibody" line offers a new "no button" glass "multi-touch" trackpad with support for new "four finger" gestures and programmable "zones", a faster architecture with a faster system bus, faster memory, and perhaps most notably, faster \n graphics processors.
