Product Description

Product Description

Strength. Lightness. Beauty. Seamlessly integrated.

MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminium, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It’s called the unibody. And the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro, you’ll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined. And it feels strong and durable — perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.

Everything Apple designers and engineers do, they do for a reason. They chose LED backlight technology for the MacBook Pro because it makes the display instantly bright and allows it to be incredibly thin. They used edge-to-edge glass not just because it looks beautiful, but because it lends structure to the display. And at the top of the screen, they hid the new built-in FaceTime HD camera. So you see your friends and family in big, beautiful widescreen — and as little of the camera as possible.

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. Apple designers and engineers spent countless hours considering things like sensitivity (how much pressure triggers a click?), audio feedback (what does the click sound like?) and friction over the smooth glass surface (what does it feel like?). The result is a trackpad that just makes sense to you — and your fingers.

Easy access to connections and ports.

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 organised, and connecting and disconnecting your devices is easy and convenient.

Thunderbolt Port

Thunderbolt lets you connect high-performance devices and high-resolution displays to a single compact port. It even supports Mini DisplayPort devices — such as your Apple LED Cinema Display or an HDMI adapter for your television.

Designed to make an impact. Just not on the environment.

Complete control over how the MacBook Pro is designed, how it’s manufactured and how it’s packaged gives Apple an environmental edge. LED backlight technology preserves energy. Glass and aluminium are highly recyclable. MacBook Pro is free of most harmful toxins. And the 17-inch model ships in packaging that’s 34 per cent smaller than the original, while the packaging for the 13-inch model is 41 per cent smaller. That means fewer trees used for boxes and fewer planes, trains and lorries used for transport.

As my first home computer was an Amstrad 1512 I have used computers for many years but I have to add I am literally a 'user' and would get totally lost in any in depth technical detail so this review is definitely not for those of you looking for impressive data specifications etc.

I have purchased numerous PC's over the years and as technology advanced it seems the PC's lasted for a shorter and shorter period of time. So when my most recent PC became ever more sluggish, having been impressed with my iPod etc, I decided to take the plunge and go for a MacBook Pro. As I'd been told a new version was due, I diligently checked each day so I could promptly order the i5 Dual Core 2.3GHz, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD as soon as it hit the market.

I can happily say that I have never so easily set up a computer - usually a few days have to be set aside to ensure I can connect to Wifi, transfer email contacts, music, etc onto any new PC. It was certainly not the case with the MacBook Pro! It definitely outshone any operating system I have used so far and the sleek aluminum casing is shiny and very attractive too!

In a very short time it was connected to the wireless hub, email account was set up and email contact addresses were moved over. My next step was to move my extensive iTunes collection over. This did take me a little longer to work out but was more a case of 'Operator Error' than the system being at fault! Once I realised I could achieve the transfer quite easily via my iPod, it was accomplished within seconds. The sound quality is excellent.

It recognised my printer without any trouble as well.

Let me start by stating as many other people have done so whilst reviewing this product that I am a long time PC user (about 20 years or so), and have never really used an Apple computer before, except during college a few years back to briefly do some music production where I only used the expensive software and not the computer or OS itself.

Windows to Mac - I was put off getting any Apple computer because I thought I'd have to learn how to use a whole new OS!! I must tell you what I realised after using this OS very early on. It's easy!!! Apple are not stupid, they know that pretty much all of their new customers that they want to entice on to their products, come from a Windows back round. If they didn't make the transition smooth and their OS easy to use for those people, they'd never get any new customers coming over from Windows to them. I have to say that my experience with Snow Leopard OSX has been very smooth and productive. I still can't get over how fast everything is. The computer boots up in a few seconds, as a Windows user that is impossible. It is extremely stable and has not crashed on me at all. The best thing about getting this out the box for the first time is I get no crappy software clogging up my desktop that I have to uninstall like I have had to do with every single Windows machine I have owned and on top of that there is no need for me to install any kind of anti-virus software! I got it out the box, I turned it on, I quickly and easily set up my computer following the prompts given to me and hey presto; I was ready to go!! Any files I had on my computer that I needed were quickly transferred via a USB HDD.

Verified Purchase
I am a newcomer to Apple Mac. After years of using Windows and Linux based PCs, I wanted something purely for leisure use - i.e. video, word processing, music and maybe a bit of dabbling with apps for ipad/ipod/iphone. I've used Mac OS a little, and am not blinkered that it's perfect. Applications still lock up, it's file management is somewhat clunky, but it's quite simple and consistent. If you do feel the need to get into its internals, you can use the Terminal.

Design wise, this is a beauty. The screen is a revelation - the clearest I've ever used. The construction method means there are no annoying flaps or doors and the body is sturdy. My old laptop creaked when you picked it up.

Connectivity wise, all angles are covered: 2 USB ports (More might be better), a Firewire Port, a SD card reader and a Thunderbolt port, which is a new general purpose connector. You can hook up a DVI connector this and use an external monitor. The power connector is magnetic, which is an absolute blessing in a house with two curious young children who tend to like pulling out cables. It's also useful for clumsy adults who tend to trip over them. There's a button on the side which displays a small line of lights so you can see battery life without opening it.

I do not, generally, like touch pads and tend to disable them. However, the multi-touch here has converted me. With this feature, the touch pad becomes more like the screen of an iPad/iPod and allows gestures to control the screen. You can scroll with two fingers, and if you're in Lion you can move between web pages and desktops. Extremely usable, and means i no longer have to use an external mouse. The keyboard is also comfortable to use and backlit for night use.
