Spending a significant sum of money on a new computer is a big decision - this review hopes to help you decide whether you want to invest in a Mac.

Quick word of warning: I'm a recent (July 2012) convert from Windows to a MacBook Pro, and was lucky enough to recently upgrade to a stunning 13 inch Retina. While I love Apple products, I'm not a Mac expert, and this review is for similar non-experts who are thinking about "converting". Because it's a review of the MBP range, you'll find the same review on other specs - skip to the end to see the specifics on this model.

Firstly, the hardware - which is just stunning. It's incredibly thin and light, and the 13 inch model is a really good compromise between screen size and weight compared to the 15 inch. (Also I intend to attach an external monitor for much of the time).

Common with all Apple MacBooks it's beautifully carved out of a solid piece of brushed aluminium, with a huge track-pad and a beautifully made back-lit keyboard.

In terms of connectivity you get:-

* Mag Safe power plug.
* 2 x Thunderbolt ports - to attach to fast external disks etc
* 2 x USB 3 ports (one either side - nice touch)
* Headphones output for external speakers
* An SDXC photo card slot
* A full size HDMI port - so you connect an external monitor

Apple hardware is more expensive than the equivalent running Windows, but you do get what you pay for, and they come with incredible attention to detail. This includes the cleverly designed "Mag Safe" magnetic power socket - so if a small child accidentally pulls on the power cable it disconnects from the laptop rather than dragging it crashing to the floor.

I must confess to being an Apple convert since about 2007. I'd had several PCs and they'd all needed a fair bit of tinkering to keep them clean and running properly. But then I bought a new PC in late 2007 which was an absolute dog - in fact I retuned it. So I thought I'd give Macs a go, and have never looked back.
So this is my second MacBook and it is a gem. It's just like my ideal woman really: beautiful, sleek, quick, functional, hard working and reassuringly expensive, not to mention very unlikely to pick up any viruses ;-))
Seriously though, it is a lovely machine. I opted for the 8GB memory and 256GB SSD and it starts up very quick, and does not slow down with multiple applications. I must say though that I am not a 'power user', so do not use a lot of graphics intensive applications, maybe just some light photo editing. The screen is very clear as you'd expect with the retina display. The USB3 ports work well and transferring files is fast - I connected two USB3 external hard drives to transfer some large files between them and it was phenomenally quick.
I really like the ability to Airplay the screen and sound to my main TV. This came in handy when I was watching something on 4OD and could throw that onto the TV. I don't think you can do that with the iOS version of the 4OD app.
The cheapest supplier seems to change and I got mine from GB Buddy. It was delivered quickly by Parcel Force. I would recommend this supplier.
If you're concerned about the money, one thing to mention is resale. My old MacBook was one of the first aluminium models from late 2008. I sold it yesterday for £250. You couldn't do that with a Windows laptop!

Great piece of kit. Having only used windows operating systems it takes a while to get round the Mac OSX system but then that is part of the fun.

I have until now always been a windows user and never had a thought to even consider apple notebooks. The issue that I had with apple notebooks was the lack of compatibility with several applications but most apps now work for both windows and mac so this was no longer an issue.

The macbook pro has a really solid design. It is very thin and compact however it still feels heavier relative to its size. I like how the screen has no bezel so it blends in with the edges of the display. The laptop also has a full size hdmi port which means that it is easy to connect to external displays such as TVs and monitors.

The first thing you notice when you turn it on is that gorgeous retina display. This is the major selling point of this laptop. Once you see a retina display, everything else just looks like a blurry mess in comparison. The screen is super sharp with good contrast and a wide colour gamut. It makes reading text on the screen really easy and I feel it reduces strain on the eyes. The keyboard and trackpad work beautifully too with good key travel and sensitivity.

OSX Mavericks works like a charm with little to no issues whatsoever and apple is soon going to offer the free upgrade to Yosemite. The battery life thanks to the Haswell processors is better than any laptop I have ever experienced. This laptop will easily manage 9-10 hours with the screen on 50% brightness. I have taken it on long haul flights and it has not died yet before I reached the destination.

In conclusion, I think this is the perfect time to switch to mac if you are a windows user. The price is slightly more premium in comparison to most other windows notebooks but you get what you pay for. I also think this is the best model to buy in terms of price vs performance. Apple have really blown the competition out of the water with this spectacular notebook.
