    Pros: functions well!
    Cons: weak case!

    Summary: I have had my mac book pro 17” for about a year and a half- it is my second mac, the first was a PowerBook G4. The only two complaints I have had have been case related- both have had he aluminum cases, which dent and warp. I have a speck case now (the ... read more

  • The last laptop you'll ever need (for 3 or 4 years anyway)

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Beautiful, fast, Windows and OS X on the same system, OS X stability
    Cons: Gets very hot running XP, expensive

    Summary: As a write this, Apple has just upgraded their MacBook Pros with the latest intel processor Peryn (sp?). So, everything I say is true without regard to any speed, stability and temperature gains. I bought my MacBook Pro back in October of 2007 for ... read more

  • Cross over from Windows to Mac will be a LOT smoother with a MacBook Pro

    Jan 11, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Larger Screen, Stylish Design, Easy Transition from Windows to Mac, User Friendly
    Cons: Price

    Summary: I waited a VERY long time going back and forth on whether or not I was going to buy a Mac. I think my one main concern was if I was going to transition easily from Windows to Mac. I had used a Mac way back in the late nineties - and it was so foreign to ... read more

  • Apple Macbook Pro-like driving the best sports car on the block!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: everything
    Cons: nothing

    Summary: I waited and waited to make the final decision to cross over...and SO glad I did. I considered myself a fairly advanced Windows user, so I was hard to impress. One day, while in an Office Depot store, I decided to ask the "geeks" their advice. I said, ... read more

    Pros: Awesome computer looks great, great performance, big screen cant go wrong.
    Cons: Costs a fortune, gets a quite warm after running for a few hours.

    Pros: * Powerful performance
    * Sleek style
    * Thoughtful details
    * LARGE screen yet still lightweight
    Cons: * Pricey but worth it!

    Summary: Let me first say that I am NOT the most tech-savvy woman on the block. But, having used computers for the last 22 years (since the IBM PC and original Apple Mac back in the mid 1980s, as my father was a Silicon Valley engineer before retirement), I'm ... read more

  • Unlike other brands, a Mac Book pro lasts for long time

    Pros: My 2008 MacBook Pro caused no problems at all.
    Cons: A bit heavy, gets too warm as previously mentioned, you need a real mouse.

    Summary: I'd like to publish a review on my 2003 Mac Book pro because strangely, after 5 years it is working just fine. One would not expect a laptop to function for 5 years, at least I would not. My six months old Sony Vaio running on Vista (reallllllly ... read more

    Pros: sleek, slim design; speedy processing, biggest BANG for the biggest buck
    Cons: the mouse does not have two buttons, which makes using the right click difficult

    Summary: I am relatively new to the world of Macs, and generally not the most tech-saavy woman, but it didn't take me long at all to transition from a PC to a MacBook Pro. I love the features that Mac has, and I have Boot Camp software that allows me to run both ... read more
