The company's line of laptops Apple, positioned as solutions for professionals and demanding users (unlike simpler models macbook).
First Macbook Pro appeared in early 2006, after switching from processors IBM on the Intel. Formerly a line of professional laptops Apple was called powerbook. The name change was a necessary measure to emphasize the departure from the PowerPC architecture, and therefore the beginning of a new era. Moreover, laptops became one of the reasons for the transition - the heavy-duty G5 processors simply could not be used in compact cases due to power consumption and the danger of overheating.
