I was a total mac sceptic until I got my MacBook Pro. The transition from PC to Mac wasn't easy, but it didn't take long and now I'm here I will never look back! This particular model is highly reliable and almost never crashes unlike some of the older Mac's I've worked on. For those of us who enjoy digital photography the image quality on this machine is second to none. It is so fast to start up and easy to use it saves me lots of time when I am working! It is so fast I can use Final Cut Pro and edit videos with ease and without having to wait a year for my computer to catch up with my film footage or large files! The only thing is the battery still doesn't last as long as I would like it to, and the 17" screen version is difficult to carry around.
Trust me. This baby beats every other laptop hands down. You can't beat it on looks, speed, reliability.....it really is that good. I previously had a Mac Book and again these are great laptops. If want something special, with style and power then get a Pro. Ok it isn't the cheapest option and I would say unless you are serious then get a regular Mac Book. They are rather heavy and the silver casing does scratch easily but it's 250GB!! The features are great and you could spend hours just messing with iMovie, iPhoto and a range of other applications. As with all macs you can encounter problems with other sites, media players etc. I recommend getting the Microsoft office for the Mac which can set you back another £100 and Windows XP (which can be loaded at the expense of memory) is useful too. I love my Mac. It's well worth the cost.
The Apple MacBook Pro is a superb notebook and has everything you need and lots more. I had never used a Mac computer system before and had doubts about how easy I would find it to make the transition from Windows to Mac. I couldn't believe how easy it was and advise those with similar feelings not to worry about it. This top of the range notebook offers so much more freedom to the user than any other on the market. There is a slight draw back and that is the price, it will at least set you back £1200 but it is defiantly worth every penny. The model I have is Silver and has a 15.4" screen with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a 200GB hard drive. The battery life is good but obviously it depends what programs you are running and the amount for example if you are running Photoshop, playing music, playing games and watching a DVD it will run down your battery life in a short amount of time.
