Advantages Ease of use, capabilities, the best laptop available.
Disadvantages Price? Weight?
Welcome to my review of the Macbook Pro.
Firstly, as with any laptop/pc, purchasing is dependent on exactly what your wishes and uses for the product may be. If your after it for business or personal use, the Macbook Pro can grant all your wishes to whatever extent you see fit for a laptop.
For the absolute technology wizz kids out there I am sure that you already know the Macbook Pro's Advantages and disadvantages. This review is based upon a (slightly!) above average computer user's thoughts.
I use my Macbook Pro for everyday internet use including social networking and purchasing online goodies etc. Its also used for finances, plans and projects, music production, general word processing, music and photographic storage and all other everyday uses to keep my life tidy and organised.
To get this review underway lets start with the basics. The unibody design means its a great looking piece of kit! It may be slightly heavier (2.54KG) than most laptops but this does give it a more robust and serious feel. The overall design is good, the keyboard (which lights up) is a pleasure to use and the mouse pad is a truly wonderful thing. Its called a track pad which works in a number of ways to make general use easier. From flicking through pages to zooming in and out the track pad makes you wonder why all mice are not like this. Try it, with in an hour you'll understand...I chose the option of having the high resolution display which gives you 36% more pixels. I think i'm greedy but i do believe, despite this greed, its worth having. The picture is fantastically sharp with colours and definition all at a very high standard. Films look great and photo's can make even your first girlfriend look attractive. Well maybe not.
My Macbook Pro comes with a headphones output plus a separate audio in/out which is very handy especially for my musical creativeness. It has 2 USB sockets which some say is not enough but for my use it's just fine. The power input has a nice touch of being magnetic too (MagSafe power port). There is also a Gigabit Ethernet Port, Mini Display Port and an SD card slot. For me this works out perfect but research into what you want out of a computer (or rather plugged into it!) to make sure these tech specs are adequate for your usage.The battery charge time is relatively quick and the battery usage time is superb compared to other laptops.
As mentioned in the review title, the spec I chose is as follows-
Processor - 2.66GHZ Intel Core i7
Memory - 4GB
Storage - 500 GB (which i chose the optional speed of 7200rpm up from the standard 5400rpm)
To summarise, this is a quick machine. It takes running multi programmes in its stride and with the large storage space my 8000 songs and many films have plenty of room to be tucked away into.
