      love it

      I was the only member of my family who did not own an apple mac but stuck with my faithful old dell laptop. I had got to the stage where I couldn't unplug it or it switched off and was bored of buying anti virus software which inevitably mall functioned or needed updating every 5minutes.

      I was concerned that apple mac would be difficult for me as I do many presentations at work where they use dell laptops and traditional software and was worried about files converting wrong and powerpoint slides missing pictures. I was also concerned that the laptop would not work with my printer.


      The apple mac has been wonderful it is lightweight and connects to the internet soooo fast! It also loads quickly which is great in a hurry. The battery lasts for a long time and the charger is an excellent length thus reaching almost wherever you are.

      I have found that if I save documents and power point presentations in the older format (which is an option) I can access them from work easily. I have slowly learnt to undo a couple of my old ideas and am getting used to the mac way.

        Great computer for people needing a portable machine with lots of power on the move.

        As a big fan of Apple in general as a computer and owner of various Apple Laptops and Desktops I was already certain I would be receiving a extremely well built computer with the new Macbook Pro when I purchased it 2 weeks ago.
        From first opening the box before even switching on the computer you instantly notice the extremely sturdy build. It's an aluminium unibody and for a 15" laptop weighs a lot less than some of the others available on the market. It's by no means the lightest I've used but it is definitely portable enough that it wouldn't be too much to carry around.
        Straight out the box everything is ready installed you don't need to put in any discs or anything you can just open the computer switch it on and follow the on screen instructions.
        The 15 inch screen is the perfect size for any tasks I personally do a lot of design work and find it gives just the right amount of space to be able to navigate images without feeling like you need some extra space. The only problem with the glossy screen is that you sometimes can find yourself having to adjust the brightness quite often because sunlight can have quite an effect on the visibility.
        The quad core processor together with the 4gb ram and dual graphics means the computer can deal really well with even challenging tasks. I have ran music production software and also regularly have a number of different windows open and it often has very minimal effect on the overall performance of the machine.
        I previously owned a 13" macbook and for battery power I would say I would tend to get more batter power from that model but that's taking into consideration the laptop being a much less powerful model.
        I haven't played games on the computer but given the specification it would be perfectly capable to run them but I would imagine because of the high demand modern games have on the CPU chances are it would be more suited for gaming if you were somewhere you had a powerpoint as it would run the battery down fairly quickly.
        If using the computer for listening to music on about half volume with the screen on half brightness and just doing small tasks like word processing or internet browsing you would average about 6-7 hours of battery life, but if you were doing more challenging tasks like I use music editing software and stream videos online you could reduce the batter power to around 5-6 hours. If you were to further that even more by having the screen on full brightness and also having full brightness on the back lit keyboard you could be looking at around 4-5 hours possibly.
        It is around £500 more expensive than the 13" model but it is definitely worth investing the extra for the extra screen size and enhanced performance in the 15".

      • Product Details

        MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminum, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It's called the unibody. And the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro you'll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined. And it feels strong and durable - perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.
