You don’t see full sized laptops with Intel Atom processors very often. But this MacBook Pro clone from China is an interesting exception to the rule. It sports a 14.1 inch display and a case that looks an awful lot like a MacBook Pro case including the large touchpad with integrated buttons.

But while the MacBook Pro is available with Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the clone has an Intel Atom processor. It is available with a choice of a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 or dual core 1.66GHz Atom D510 chip — the latter usually being reserved for use in desktops, not laptops. And both versions come with next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics, which should give the computer quite a boost when it comes to HD video playback and rendering 3D graphics. But performance-wise, I don’t think anyone’s going to confuse this MacBook Pro clone with the real thing.

Rounding out the specs are 1 to 2GB of RAM, a 160GB to 320GB hard drive, a 1366 x 768 pixel display, HDMI, 3 USB ports, a flash card reader, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, and Bluetooth. The notebook weighs just under 4 pounds.

  1. “MacBook Pro clone” is pure link-bait.
    1. A real MacBook Pro has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
    2. A real MacBook Pro does not have an ugly video port.
    3. A real MacBook Pro runs both Mac OS X and Windows.
    4. A real MacBook Pro has 802.11n

    1. I’m pretty sure they means that it looks a whole lot like one, not that it matches it spec for spec. It has the oversized touch pad, unibody construction(which I doubt it really is, since that is a rendering), and the black rounded bezel around the screen.

      You also forgot a very important 5th point.

      5. A real MacBook Pro never gets a hardware refresh.

      If Apple ever decides to refreshing the Macbook Pro, I’ll buy one, but I feel bad for anyone who buys one right now.
