Advantages: wonderful built quality, awesome graphics, high performance
Disadvantages: the price, OSX Lion still have some compatibility issue with some software
Before I started to use this product I was using macbook white for two years. I was overall satisfied with my macbook white. I had these overheat problem, very quick battery drain and the awkward feeling to type in darkness without illuminate keyboard was enough to help me decide that I need a new laptop.
I will always makes apple product as my priority pick as I feel comfortable using it. I decide to buy a new macbook pro as it is obvious that the best apple laptop currently is the macbook pro.
I ordered mine 500 GB hard drive, 4 GB RAM, 15.4-inch display screen with OS X Lion.
Design and Appearance
The aluminum body makes this product looks very smart and futuristic if compared to the plastic body that used by other laptop products. The multi-touch trackpad that I love the most is still there. As I expected, the backlit keyboard really helped me to type in the dark as the button illuminates when pressed. The FireWire and Thunderbolt ports as well as the card slot which was missing on my macbook white are all very helpful to perform a much faster data transfer.
The high-resolution display makes opening pictures, videos or playing games feels like a stunning experience. It's just brilliant.
I personally feels that the speed in processing perhaps twice as fast compared to macbook white. So far I never had a crash or errors. the overheat problem was a past for me. I regularly play Call of Duty and Football Manager 2011 on this laptop and I have to say that I was really impressed that it runs flawlessly all the time without any problems. The battery can last usually for 7 hours on normal use, but it last shorter on active wi-fi connection or watching DVD.
There are some software that I previously used in snow leopard now incompatible in Lion. But I think it's just a matter of time before the developers get it right for the OS X Lion as it is a still relatively new OS. with the facetime application I can now make a video call with the high resolution camera to my friends who is also using a macbook, iphone and even ipad.
Summary: if you consider to buy laptop, i suggest you to put Apple MacBook Pro on the very top of your list.
