The Good
This is a slick piece of kit. I'm totally new to the Mac and boy am i thrilled with the decision. Firstly the screen is bright......when i say bright i really do mean bright. It takes your breath away, which for photographs is amazing. Battery life is so far impressive, obviously the more you do the more hungry it is but easily getting 5 hrs plus. Better than any windows laptop.
It feels really stable, i've only had to force quit (close down) once and that was with an external hard drive full of window files. Shutting down the machine is simple and again very fast.
This is a capable machine, to give you an idea..... i was transferring 4gb video footage from iMovie to mem stick, surfing the web, online poker on, itunes playing all at the same time.....not even hint of lag.
The only game i have tried is Eve Online, not like i play it but wanted to test out the main graphics card....WOW...works a treat, very smooth. Although i did notice the machine was getting a tad warm.
Apparently you don't need virus software, as windows users know, loading up virus protection does have an impact on yr machine. Now i'm not totally convinced by the apple shop telling me this but so far so good. Just need to stay away from the dodgy websites.

The Bad
It's expensive, very expensive.
It's fairly heavy for its size, but i went for the 15" for the viewing pleasure so can't complain.
The interface is different and it has taken about week to get fully up to speed with how it all works (obviously the basics) - i'm a little concerned if something was to go wrong, i'd have to ship it off somewhere.

And I assure you, a Mac wins.

Look at it like this if youre on the fence; If youre a consumer looking for a bargain PC - get a laptop and save your money. If youre looking for a premium computer with superior build quality and a better overall value in the long run - spend more money and get a Mac. There is a logical, arguable reason why they are more expensive.

A way to think about it is; if Windows-based PCs as a whole are thought of as a top selling car like the Ford Focus, Apple's Mac computers would be more like a luxury car, like a Porsche. Porsche sales are just a fraction of Focus sales because it does not sell any models in the low-end price range. But at the same time, Porsche makes more money on each car sold and maintains a premium branding. If Porsche started selling cheap cars, it would move a lot more units, but it would no longer be the Porsche brand that we know. Youre paying for the premium. Youre paying for the better quality. Youre paying for the niche market. The service. The brand name and everything that comes with it.

Anywho. Apple have truly excelled themselves with their latest line in Macs. They have become such high quality that, as far as Im concerned, there is now only ONE reason you would get a laptop or PC over a Macbook Pro ; Gaming.

Games will run better, and by that I mean at higher resolutions and detail, but ONLY JUST. The slightly lower dip in FPS (frames per second - i.e. how smooth the game runs as you up the graphical detail) shouldnt be put into consideration when you look at all the benefits the Macs have over PCs and Laptops these days.

Wow - first mac, and I just can't get over how great this is. Screen fantastic, Mac OS X incredible, I love the software that comes with it (Garage band in particular - free lessons to learn the guitar and piano). Touchpad gestures are great. Above all, the battery life is superb - easily getting five hours in reasonably low use. Yes, the price is much higher than many Windows notebooks, but you get all the above with this.

If you do want to run Windows - you can via Bootcamp. Can't see this happening though!!

The only slight niggle is the lack of Blueray.

Verified Purchase
I know this is an expensive Laptop but the quality, screen and the general feel just beats a PC Laptop down. I had been looking at a top spec XPS 16 and at the last minute I decided on the Apple. I am so glad I did! I have used a MacPro for a couple of years and have to say it boots up as fast as it ever did and has never let me down with Software. The interface for the Macbook pro is excellent.

Positives
- Screen is very crisp and clean - great for watching HD itunes content
- Keyboard lights up wonderfully - May seem an odd benefit but surprising how useful it is and far better done than on similarly price laptops
- Speed of boot-up and general user interface
- At las - A half decent graphics card - not great for full gaming but It plays WOW with all mods on at 40-60FPS
- Build quality - Outsanding
- Slim and relatively light
- Battery life is staggering
- I personally like the trackpad

Negatives
- No Blu-Ray option
- Would like better spec graphics card
- More USB ports
- No HDMI port
- No easy right-click option

Overall - get one - as a final point it will be worth twice as much as a similar PC in 2 years time at least and it will still load up almost as quick unlike a PC that just gets slower and slower month after month.

I didn't think this was overly expensive for this quality and spec. A little more than a Dell but not materially.

Get one - you won't be disappointed
