The Macbook Pro 13.3" is one monster of a machine. As I use it to write this review, I can honestly say it is the first Mac I've ever had and I will never go back to PC. It's that good. I've even switched to an iPhone so I can use cloud with my Mac.
Converting to Mac can be a bit tricky at first if you're stuck in your ways with PC. I have to admit I didn't even know command was the same as control at first. But after a couple of hours playing with absolutely everything it had to offer (app store, facetime, itunes, photobooth, garageband, bluetooth, super high quality HD picture for games and movies, best sound system i've ever had on a laptop, the layout of the dashboard and finger swipe action which is much cooler than PC). I'm a student, so when I bought this laptop I knew I needed something extremely durable, with long lasting battery life that I could use for long periods of time without it slowing down and carry easily. As for durability, the man that helped me pick it out told me that you could drop it off a building and as it's titanium it won't break. I don't know about dropping it off a building, but I've dropped it a few feet quite a few times now and it's still going strong. With the battery life it's supposed to last for 10 hours and you're able to check how many hours are left with the handy button and lights on the side. However even with a full charge mine only lasts around 5-7 hours. This is still much better than any other laptop i've owned. The internet in regards to safari loading is extremely fast and no matter how many applications are open it doesn't slow down or freeze like PC. No more control-alt-delete situations.
I find the 13.3" screen to be the perfect size and even though it's metal it's still very lightweight. The light up keyboard is a great feature if you happen to be computing in the dark.
I can recommend this laptop to anyone, it's the best laptop you'll ever buy. Well worth the price although I wish it would be cheaper as now I want a big screen desktop Mac.
Buy this laptop!
Summary: RAM 4 GB, Core i5 2.3 GHz, the ideal laptop, never freezes, high quality in every way
