5.0 out of 5 stars The best 13" laptop. Period., 25 May 2010
This review is from: MacBook Pro 13inch 2.66GHz (Intel Core 2 Duo, 4Gb RAM, 320Gb HDD, NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics, SD card slot, up to 10 hour battery life) (Electronics)
This, the latest version of Apple's unibody MacBook Pro with a 13" screen is superb. I was initially disappointed that it didn't feature Intel's new i5 and i7 (Nehalem) processors, which set a new performance bar. But the Core 2 Duo in this MacBook Pro is actually very fast and powerful. The reason Apple chose it was because it provides a quantum leap in battery life - 10 hours. Overall, this latest model simply improves on what was already an outstanding computer. You'll find the chipset more than adequate for 99.9% of tasks.

The hardware is robust and sleek and will easily survive everyday carrying here, there and everywhere. The screen is gorgeous - another improvement - and the keyboard is easy to use in all light conditions thanks to standard backlighting. There are more than enough ports, including a firewire port missing form earlier versions. Apple has clearly taken customer feedback on-board.

In case you are considering a switch from PC to Mac, it is worth remembering that the very best reason to buy any Apple laptop is the Mac OSX operating system inside it. Visually gorgeous and totally intuitive to use, you will be stunned by it. This really is shock and awe for computers. I never loved my old Sony VAIO, but it was true love at first byte with my Mac. Given the extraordinary longevity of these machines, you're in for a long-term relationship. Nice to have computer that will last for years instead of being obsolete within months.

Then there is Apple's customer service and support. This is equally brilliant. In short, I am a delighted customer. You will be too.
