Product Description

Product Description

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.

Box Contains

Network drive
Ethernet cable for network connection
AC power adapter
Installation and software CD
Quick Install Guide

Well what can i say...
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).

For years I'd suffered the poisoned thorns sticking in my flesh that was MS Windows. Every few blinking months a new upgrade needed. Every app cost £60-£100 in the first place -I hunted for cheapo half baked apps. Hesitations or long long hold ups all the time -what is it now ? Every Help file completely useless and only ever available online. Filenames and extensions were important. But I thought they're not -my thought process and my output is. Why am I interrupted by nonsense ?
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.

I have been an IT guy since the 90's and always stayed away from the "dreaded Mac"! I finally took the plunge and decided to see what it was all about. Since some of my AutoCAD programs are Windows based only I decided to use Parallels VM to run Windows-Only applications. After the first week I decided I would never go back to a PC. The boot is extremely fast and so all all of the applications!

This laptop is wasting my time. No, not because it is slow or anything, it is just so beautiful that I can't go for more than five minuets without looking at the extremely beautiful and well made unibody enclosure. Iv'e had it for about a week and I haven't had a SINGLE problem or error (well apart from the time Team fortress 2 and portal crashed, but that was an issue with the applications). The sound on this laptop is the best I have ever heard on any laptop, and the superdrive is great for playing CD's and movies. I have managed so far to get about 3 hours of full brightness, 10 hours in the dark, and about an hour of solid gaming or other intensive use. It is very light and only 0.98 inches or about 2 cm thick. Now, when I was thinking about buying this item, I wondered wether it could run games, and the simple answer is yes, but let's get in to more detail. So far, I have tested 3 games, Portal, Team Fortress 2 and Minecraft. Let's start with Portal. It is a very fun puzzle game involving a gun with fires Portals. This game is a great way to test a GPU because the computer may have to render up to four separate worlds when looking through portals. The laptop copes with this extremely well, with minimal lag and is able to maintain a fluid frame rate even when running at a native resolution with all graphic options maxed. Now for Team Fortress 2, as it is a first-person shooter it requires a decent frame rate for you to be able to get out of the way of a garage of bullets heading your way, and send a lot back. The MacBook Pro delivers high frame rates in spades. Last up it's Minecraft, possibly the most intensive application I have on my MacBook to date. The reason being it has to randomly generate, load and render an infinite world with trees, animals and monsters.Read more ›

This is a wonderful computer that works very well. I had dealt with microsoft for far too long in my personal life (granted I have to use it at work). I just didn't want to spend the money - but you get what you pay for. This computer works great, has such a great display and the mouse gesture features are awesome. Resale value holds just like a subaru. But you won't want to part with it for a long time, I have had mine a year and the last thing I think of is that I need more speed. Highly recommended.
