First time with a Mac and I'm never going back,
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro 13 inch Laptop (Dual-Core i5 2.4GHz, RAM 4GB, HDD 500GB Graphics SD card slot (Personal Computers)
I bought this product a couple of weeks ago when my PC crashed. I had never bought a Mac before and have always used PCs since I was young. Having the decision to switch to Macs I would never go back!
This product is so quick in its start-up and shut down. Installations are so much easier for most programs and there have been none of the software and operating system update blips which tend to plague Windows operationg systems.
The product is advertise din conjunction with Windows for Mac, but I don't think it is at all necessary to buy Windows for it. Windows products are expensive and there are plenty of Mac-specific bits of software, like Pages (word-processing) which are so cheap comparably. I first looked at getting Microsoft Word for Mac, but I saved around £60 but opting for Pages (available for download from the 'App store.' I heartily recommend throwing oneself into the whole Mac experience. It will take maybe a day or two to get used but then it will seem so easy and so logical. I have had this product for less than a month and already it feels strange using a PC again.
The aspects which have impressed me the most are the nifty key-board back lights, its portability, its compact size, its speed and its incredible graphics. I have been watching DVDs on this because the display is incredible. I bought separate speakers, but the built-in speakers are by superior to any in-built PC speakers I've used.
And finally, it looks so cool! :-D
