It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for since last June: This year’s WWDC is getting kicked off and we’re here to bring the goods to you as the drama unfolds. The event is being lead by none other than Phil Schiller who will be delivering this year’s keynote, of course.

First up for the day: a new 15″ Macbook Pro with its famous unibody build which looks to be using the same battery as the 17″ model. The new line of 15″ MBPs should be getting an impressive 7 hours of battery life about 1,000 charges. There will be an SD Card slot where the Express Card slot used to be for greater convenience. It now sports a 3.06GHz Core 2 Duo CPU and can hold up to 8GB of RAM along with the capacity for a 500GB hard drive. And the best news of all is that the price has been hacked down to $1699! Here are the three flavors of 15″ Macbook Pro: $1699 (2.53GHZ, 4GB RAM), $1999 (2.66GHz, 4GB RAM 320GB HD), $2299 (2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD). But the 15″ isn’t the only one getting a refresh as the 17″ Macbook Pro and 13″ Macbook are getting some serious updates. Stay tuned!
