Advantages: resistant material, no viruses issues.
Disadvantages: it gets really hot
At university I definitely needed a better and more capable lap top which allowed me to handle more tasks and information quickly as well as protecting me from viruses which have broken my last 2 windows laptops in spite of paying for anti-virus software. That is why I thought a Mac book pro was the perfect option for me. The features were great. I loved the keyboard and the screen adjusting the brightness automatically depending on the lighting, my eyes have appreciated it a lot! The simple style is also a plus and something that makes a big difference, compared with other makes and even with the macbook, it has an aluminium frame which makes it very resistant. I also liked the quality of the webcam for skyping, it is way better than the ones average laptops have.
With regards to the software, I think the fact that it is very difficult for it to catch a virus or any threats is great, I was really sick of dealing with antiviruses, so in that respect it's been great and I can surf download sites care free.
The downside which can become very annoying, is how hot it gets with regular use. It literally gets boiling and untouchable. I took it to a apple shop and they told me it is the processor and the graphic board that makes it heat up that much. With most laptops but more-so with macs, they are extremely expensive to get repaired out of warranty so I'm kind of stuck with a laptop that I can't use after an hour or so, or I have to position an external fan towards it to try to cool it down - not ideal. I think the new mac laptops don't have this problem.
Other than that, I think it was a good choice and I even look forward to get the new models. Mac is still way better than PC!
Summary: It would be perfect if it didn't have the temperature issue.
