Apple MacBook Pro (MD322B/A)
Advantages: Fast, reliable, looks good, great user base, good customer service
Disadvantages: Very high price tag
Well, Straight away I'm not going to lie to you. The Macbook Pro is very over priced, you're paying for the name and that little white apple on the laptop that lights up when in use. This being said you are also paying for amazing customer service where they have thousands of pages of helpful answers to any problems you come across on the apple forums, the on phone customer service is simple amazing too they are polite and know what they are talking about. Lastly if you have a store near you and any problems with your laptop, take it in to them and they'll sort it no problem!
Just because it is over priced doesn't take away from it that it is an amazing laptop nonetheless. I used to hate everything apple, until my friend got the standard Macbook when they were still being made (Now replaced with the macbook air) It was something I'd never seen before this lovely white laptop, far better than any laptop I had owned, its features were amazing. He is a graphic designer and the applications he used all seemed to work seamlessly on a mac, with more usability than any windows counter part even with the same specification.
After that I really did start to like apple and eventually I was able to purchase a Macbook pro on finance. When I got it I fell in love all over again, the usability of a Mac is rivalled by none, windows computers in comparison are useless now I can't stand them. The gestures able to be used on the track pad made browsing the internet so much more quick and easy and even fun, the zooming,page scrolling (Up, down, side to side) picture rotating were all brilliant, then being able to view all applications open in one screen is very handy especially when I am running many programs! The ability to full screen every windowed program I find very useful too!
The last thing I'm going to go into is the battery life, I do love how long it lasts (Up to 8 hours) and also how quickly it is able to charge, even when I've only charged it for a couple hours. I find that I still get more usage out of it compared to how long its been on charge. Also the charger is simply genius because its magnetised so that its easy to slot in, even in the dark such as when browsing the web at night or in a badly lit room, and its not so magnetised that if you or someone else were to trip over it, that it'd break. However I don't recommend doing it on purpose as I'm sure it'll eventually cause damage. The only reason the magnetised charger slot is a bonus is because I've ruined 2 laptop charging sockets due to me tripping over them! (Such bad luck i know!)
I'm not going to go into specification details because chances are if you are looking at buying a Macbook Pro then you already know them, and also you can see them right now at the top of the page! This is just more a first hand experience review instead of a technical review.
Thanks! Have a good day.
Summary: A great laptop although you can achieve the same specs using a lot less money!
