The Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there's more room to track and more room to click - left, right, centre, and everywhere in between. The connections and ports on MacBook Pro - MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt, USB, SDXC, and audio in/out - are all smartly integrated on the same side of the notebook. So your cables stay neatly organized, and connecting and disconnecting your devices is easy and convenient.

Firstly i'd like to say what a beautifully crafted and well engineered machine this is.
I've been using macs personally since 2003 and they just let you get on with your work (and play) without the babysitting of windows annoyances.
My primary use is for art within games development.
It works well with Maya, Adobe creative suite CS and many other industry standard software applications.
I would recommend this 17" macbook pro for creatives.
The only con is the hard drive. Although a roomy 750gb it's only 5400rpm and a little slow.
I highly recommend you upgrading to an SSD which is very easy to install.
(I installed a crucial M4 256gb and it has made the machine a speed monster).
So I moved to where computing isn't computing anymore -it's getting on with my life. It's fun. My friend is seamlessly integrated. Defaults are thought through. Example: tonight I hadn't got the right printer driver for my soggy old deskjet printer -no problem I just plugged in its USB then hit search for updates. Then hit print -it worked that well. In that amount of time it's taken me to tell you now I was printing -15seconds. Simples ?
Being with my friend makes sitting down fun again. Not just silly internet -anyone can do that. I shoot a lot of video for my clubs. iMovie is just one of the many free built in apps. It makes stitching together all types of video, stills, sound, voiceovers, graphics, titles and natty transitions a breeze. All in 1080HD. Sure when I Export it works the processors hard, sure the back panel gets very warm, but I can be doing something else it doesn't lock up the whole machine.
I was stupid I wanted to run a few of my dodgy old Windows apps. I got Parallels -they make huge boasts. And surprisingly Windows ran 5 times faster than in it's native environment. Really complex games ran perfectly. Wo.
This is the second Apple based friend I've had. OSX is based on Unix so I've never had any virus protection on any Apple product my family have ever owned.Read more ›
