Apple to Introduce Quad-Core 17 inch MacBook Pro?

As we are nearing the final days to Macworld 2009, Intel has introduced 5 new mobile CPUs including a low-cost quad-core processor that some believe may see its way into a 17 inch MacBook Pro in time for the event.

The introduction of the 15 inch unibody MacBook Pro at last October’s notebook event, left many wondering when its big brother would make an appearance. While there is no doubt that the 17 inch MBP is due for an update, it is possible that Apple delayed its introduction in accordance with Intel’s roadmap.

The processor in question, branded as the Core 2 Extreme Q9000, boasts four 2GHz cores with 6MB of Level 2 cache and rings in at $348 in 1000 unit lots. Under such a budget it would not seem impossible for Apple to beef up the 17 inch MacBook Pro without increasing its cost. Acer has already announced a Q9000 powered “extreme gaming” notebook that is set to sport an 18.4 inch screen and come equipped with Nvidia GeForce 9700M GT graphics. While there is no word on availability, the notebook will carry a sticker price of $1,700.

If Apple opts to not use the new mobile quad-core processor for an MBP update, they still have 4 recently released dual-core options to choose from including, a 2.53GHz, two 2.66GHz and a 2.93GHz model. It would be possible for Apple to use these for an iMac refresh as well.
