Hey all, I have been seriouly thinking of buying Mac Book Pro 2010 model (one with Nvidia GPU in it)  I almost bought one few months back, but I couldn't get monthly payment option in Bestbuy.. And I ened up buy Asus laptop lol. As my old desktop cpu was getting old. Anywho.. I use to use Mac long ago in Highschool and they have come a long way since system 7.

I have always wanted a Mac, Tired of mircsoft Bs and all virus/spyware and other crap. Just couldn't afford one.

But hopefully that will be soon.


I have been checking on-line and reading the reviews of the new Mac Book Pro 2011 models. I also notice they are now using ATI/Amd video GPU in then. Most people are not liking them,  Being that I am gamer, I do want decent laptop with atlest half decent video card.  I have read a lot reviews on older Mac book pro's wih Nvida gpu. I myself like Nvidia over Ati.

Anywho i hope I can still get one before they are gone. My Question is...

I love new i7 Cpu in my Asus has 8 cores in it.. Runs at 1.73 ghz & Boost upto 2.9 Ghz.. (intel core i7 740QM cpu )

I'd love get that same Cpu in Mac book Pro with decent Nvida gpu...


Can I still order or buy Macbook pro with Intel i7 cpu and still have Nvidia Gpu. Even though most Mac stores/ other computer stores that sell Mac have 2011 version with Crapy Ati Cards in then?


Or once they gone, They gone? If I can order one, I just dont want miss out on good laptop.


If anybody knows. Please get back to me, So know if I should be concerned or not. Thank you very much


MacBook Pro

Production of the 2010 models was discontinued when the 2011 models were released in late February. There may be some 2010 standard models still in stock here and there, but you'll have to search them out, and you won't be able to order a built-to-order 2010 model any more.
