Apple MacBook Pro MA600B/A ... Intel engine. Up to five times the speed of the PowerBook G4. Eight times the graphics bandwidth. With built-in iSight for instant video conferencing on the move. Front Row with Apple Remote to dazzle everyone in the room.
MacBook Pro is built upon the revolutionary Intel Core Duo - which packs the power of two processors (up to 2.16GHz) inside a single chip. It provides 2MB of Smart Cache, L2 cache that can be shared between both cores as needed. It delivers higher performance in 2D and 3D graphics, video editing, and music encoding. And the new engine is only part of the story. MacBook Pro has a frontside bus and memory that, at 667MHz, runs faster than any previous Mac notebook. It's the first Mac notebook with PCI Express, a Serial ATA hard drive, and the ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 for superfast graphics performance.
Sit down. Click on someone's iChat icon. And video conference from anywhere in the world. Though you can barely see it, there's an iSight camera built into the thin bezel just above the display. So now you can conference with associates during the day and chat with the kids at night. iChat AV lets you video chat with up to three other people simultaneously. And when you go head to head, you'll see your colleague more clearly, thanks to the VGA resolution made possible by the superfast Intel Core Duo. MacBook Pro also comes with Apple's Photo Booth application, a fun program that lets you take warped and Warholesque snapshots. With the new iLife '06 (included, of course), you can even record movies with iSight right into iMovie, then use the new iLife's newest application, iWeb, to create a video blog entry or podcast in just a few clicks.
MacBook Pro delivers the Front Row media experience, making it easy (and rather spectacular) to showcase your latest creations. Whether you're at the client's office, on location, or back at your hotel room, you just use the Apple Remote to control your videos, music, movies, and more. Front Row lets you quickly navigate through your work and play from anywhere in the room. You can even use the Apple Remote to navigate through Keynote presentations.

Apple MacBook Pro MB991B/AMac: Not just claiming the throne (687 words)

I got my MacBook Pro last week. I used to be a PC user, but now I ve turned to the dark side and gone Mac. Let me tell you why.... As I ve said, I got this last week. This is the first Mac I ve owned, but I have had a play on a few in the Apple store. So, I got it out of the box, and set it up. Piece of cake. It was easy to set up the Mac itself, and easy (a beginner could do it) to put on applications. Put in the disc (or download the file) open it, and put it into the Applications folder. There you are, installed. Setting up the wireless was just as simple. Switch it on, find the network, enter the key and there you are, connected. Simples. The keyboard is set up ...

by placing two fingers together on the screen and spreading them and then pinching them together to zoom out again. This has been adapated and used on the MacBook Pro for rotating and zooming with images and other objects. These really frustrate me, though i ve heard they can be turned off in Snow Leopard. Although I can see the point in them, as a designer/photographer I find it frustrating in photoshop to accidentally zoom or rotate an image. - Speed & Overall Performance - I have to say that when this Macbook Pro seems to be like the little girl with the curl.... when it s good it s very very good but when it s bad....well....it freezes. Ok so not very often ...

I just recently purchased the 13 inch MacBook Pro , and I didn t know if it would be worth the price. However, it has been totally worth it. The machine is fast, looks great and is very easy to use. On the other hand, it is prone to scratches and is very expensive compared to similar spec Windows PC s. The packaging is very simple, but looks great. It protects the machine very well. The build quality is very good, with a study computer, with everything fine cut and one of the best designs on the market. However, the case is prone to scratches and this can become very annoying as they show up very easily, so invest in a nice case or sleeve. The battery life is ...
