Apple MacBook Pro MA092B/A ... improvements in notebook performance before - but never on this scale. The Intel Core Duo powering MacBook Pro is actually two processors built into a single chip. This, combined with myriad other engineering leaps, boosts performance up to four times higher than the PowerBook G4. With this awesome power, it's a breeze to render complex 3D models, enjoy smooth playback of HD video, or host a four-way video conference.
Intel Core Duo is the first chip built using Intel's groundbreaking 65-nanometer process - resulting in transistors so small, you could fit a hundred inside a single human cell. With smaller distances for electrons to travel, and two processors designed to share resources and conserve power, Intel Core Duo achieves higher levels of performance as it uses fewer watts. Which is what makes it possible to design a super-powerful MacBook Pro that's only one inch thin.
When Mac technology makes something easy, it's hardly news. So here's more non-news for MacBook Pro owners: software just works. If you see the Universal logo on a new application, that means it will run on Intel- and PowerPC-based Mac computers. For most existing applications, you simply do what you've always done: double-click them. Thanks to the Rosetta technology in Mac OS X, they look and feel just like they did before.

I have had mine for 18 month now and it is seemless, I mean it is a complete work/play machine. I don't know how I ever lived with out it. After I got mine 6 people in my office all did the same! Maybe I should change carreers! I don't why I am sounding shocked... at the end of the day it's a MAC!!! If you dont have one already.... Get one!

Having used PowerPC based PowerBooks from Apple for many years, I recently decided to give myself a major productivity boost and upgrade to the latest version of their offering, an Intel Based MacBookPro. I got everything charged up and plugged in, and proceeded (by firewire) to port my user account from my old powerbook. This is a very nice touch, as it brings over everything - programmes, files, even my desktop layout was the same, and it only took a couple of hours in total (my 10,000 image iphoto library came over too!). Gripe time - At first, I really wish I'd not brought over the App's. Despite assurances that software will run on both Intel ... Read the complete review

Powered by a 2.0 dual-core Intel engine. Up to five times the speed of the PowerBook G4. MacBook Pro is built with intel Core Duo - which packs the power of two processors (up to 2.16GHz) inside a single chip. high performance graphics what i have come to expect from my Mac's. From the box It's the first Mac notebook with PCI Express, a Serial ATA hard drive, and the ATI Mobility Radeon. Setup was easy my first mac that i could use without the problems of setting. Installing my printer was a breeze and the sound and clear visibility of the screen is much better then my previous mac. This is a ideal mac for people who generally want ease of use, and a ...

For anyone considering purchasing a laptop, the Apple MacBook Pro has to be considered. It can quite happily boot to Windows XP or Mac OS-X, doing both with grace, speed and style. Sure Windows still hangs now and then like on any laptop, but it is definately more reliable than my desktop running the Windows. The inbuilt graphics are impressive, with a young friend of the family claiming that it delivered the best performance of any laptop he had used when playing FPS games online. He initially refused to believe the stated specifications for the Apple as he had apparently used better "speced" laptops that were significantly ... Read the complete review
