The macbookpro was introduced 2006 amd replaced the powerbook G4 with an intel proecessor and with 13- and 15-inch screens. A 17-inch version was available in the first and second generation, but not in the third.

​

The first generation macbookpro appeared externally similar to the powerbook G4, but used the intel core processors instead of powerpc G4 chips. 

​

The macbookpro second generation, known as the "unibody" model, has a more tapered design and a casing made from a single block of aluminum.

​

The most substantial differences in the third generation macbookpro are the fitting of a significantly higher resolution retina display, the elimination of the optical drive, and replacement of hard disk drives with solid-state drives.
