Apple "After an unusually long wait, Apple has finally released updated models of its MacBook Pro line of notebooks. The 15" and 17" models offer the latest Core i5 and i7 processors, though the 13" model still uses a Core 2 Duo processor. But new processors aren't the only improvement; Apple has also seen fit to increase the base RAM configuration to 4GB on all models and bump the hard drive and SSD options. And Apple claims battery life has been improved, with some models now going as long as 10 hours without plugging in."

And how is redesigning the logic board any different from what they did with the 15 and 17 inch versions?

The fact is that i3 has the same TDP as the core 2, there are even 13" computers with i5 processors. Aside from price, there's no reason to not include the i3. So it really is just Apple being cheap.
