5.0 out of 5 stars Really, really good, 25 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro 17" 1920 x 1200 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo /2GB /160GB 7200rpm /SD /AP /BT (Electronics)
Cliche - I never usually write reviews but:

... I have got a lot from Amazon reviewers in the past so this is my turn! I didn't actually purchase from Amazon - I went direct through Apple with a cosy educational discount! I opted for the 17" high resolution screen with a 200gb 7200rpm drive and 2gb memory. I have finally (after 4 days) transferred my old PC data across which I did via a crossover cable easily. The MacBook Pro is amazing - it is absolutely rapid at any given task, and Leopard is a joy to work with. Already I look at my old Windows XP interface with slight pity! The 17" high resolution screen is class - but be warned you need to set the font size preferences with certain applications to medium (or just zoom in) - my eyes can't quite cope at times! .. But the screen is really, really good. I got the Asaka 17"note book cooler (available on amazon) and it is also very good - extremely quiet and keeps the MacBook Pro nice and cool. I also purchasd the wireless mighty mouse which takes getting used to - but is also excellent (contrary to some reviews). I did have one or two 'waking up from sleep' issues (search google, there have been problems) but this was resolved easily with the help of an Apple Care telephone rep who helped me reset my battery (take battery out, hold power for 5 seconds) - all fine now.

Bottom line: The 17" MacBook Pro is expensive but very, very good. A great standalone home/business machine or simply just a portable.. If you're unsure about switching from PC to Mac and have the funds to do it, I would suggest just do it...
