Never going back to PC...,
This review is from: PPLE - PROF. NOTEBOOK MACBOOK PRO 17 QUAD CI7 2.2GHZ 750GB 4GB SUPERDRIVEX8 OSX UK (Personal Computers)
Got the new macbook pro 17" for university. Quite literally my best purchase ever! Honestly many people say this product is overpriced or not good value for money... well there wrong. In terms of the pure processing power and the speed of the macbook its second to none. All the functions seem natural and unlike PC everything works, and I mean everything. One of the best things I like about it is the touchpad. Just the sheer amount of functions it has like scrolling, back and forward function on the internet, switching between views, zooming, its kind of disappointing when you use someone else's PC because you can be fooled that their touchpad does the same and it just doesn't. Getting use to pages, keynote and numbers is relatively simple with a little understanding of computers after more than 10 years of using MS windows. Also the power of branding is seen here, it really is a talking point amongst friends, and i don't mean rubbing it in their faces you have a mac, its just simply how good they are. Also because everything is designed FOR the mac such as software and applications they work seamlessly with each other and very quickly, unlike windows where independent software companies produce programs to run alongside with windows. All in all, one of the few truly 5 star products out there, and a must have for anyone who wants a hassle free operating system and quick frankly a good looking laptop!
