MacBook Pro on “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay” [Apple]

Posted in Movies, Tech with tags , , , on August 11, 2008 by The Quintessential Geek

In the movie “Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay“, on the plane at the start of the movie, we see Harold and Kumar watching a movie on a brand-new black MacBook Pro. First announced in January 2006, the MacBook Pro was the successor to the G4 Powerbook models. Although the G4 Powerbook did not live up to its expectations, the MacBook Pro was an instant hit with both Apple aficionados and newcomers alike. It was also the first Apple notebook to feature the use of Intel processors instead of the proprietary Apple PowerPC. Slick, thin, light, and sophisticated, the MacBook Pro is slowly becoming a notebook to reckon with.
