“Stunning MacBook”

published 08/07/2012

ProSlick, Polished, Fast

ConsExtra Price

I recently bought myself a Macbook pro for general use around the house, for pleasure rather than anything else. Now I appreciate that apple has inflated prices due to the brand and everything that comes with them. But the MacBook is simply put the best notebook I have ever used! The first thing...

One word: Amazing! I've always been slightly envious of Mac owners in the past, wishing I had enough money to afford one for myself. I've found that over the past 5 years, I've been buying a laptop every year! I sat and thought to myself, in the long-term over the next 5 years, I can carry on...

“Macbook Pro is Brilliant!”

ProLight, Easy-to-use, Comfortable, Nice design

ConsNone

Before I bought my Macbook Pro, the only experience I had of Mac OS X was on the college iMacs. The reason I bought my Macbook Pro was because it would come in handy a lot for when I move away to university and Mac's are far better for photo and movie editing and that is what I need it for most...

I found myself wanting a new computer this year, and my old Ibook G4 was not doing the trick.

ProLong Lasting, fast and powerful computer.

ConsEffects of aging come quite suddenly.

I have been using apple's Macbook Pro for over a year now, and since purchase, it has worked as promised. It charges up relatively fast compared to it's predecessor, the macbook, which was released in late 2008. As estimated, over time, its performance depreciated. The battery doesn't last as...
