"Convert--I did"on by covolor
Pros Graphic's, speakers, processor, and nice display
Cons Battery doesn't last long enough
Summary I'm a PC user and have been since I was born. But here's the reason why I'm making the switch:
1. The hardware for Mac is now the same as PC. What this means to me, I can run any OS (within reason) that I want and OS X. This is by far the biggest seller for me.
2. OS X is what Vista is trying to be.
3. Apple is currently coming out with better innovations in all most every product line they produce.
4. I'm sick of PC's after working all day with them and the end users.
5. I want to be able to work and not have to trouble shoot the computer while working.
6. OS X is stable and vista isn't.
7. OS X is a much faster then Vista.
The reason I choose the Macbook Pro (over the Macbook model) is they are using the new Intel processor, better graphics card (Macbook uses the RAM for its graphics, meaning if you have a 1GB in the computer and your sharing it with the video card, you have less ram to run applications and such.), and lastly the larger screen size.
Go Apple---you won’t regret it.
Pros Battery actually lasts 4-5 hours in real life use, Multitouch trackpad makes internet surfing a breeze, built in isight, backlit keyboard, LED screen backlight, beautiful screen colors, quiet
Cons Computer sleeps when lid is closed, you can't turn that off. It runs warmer than my previous laptops, but i guess that is normal for macs.
Summary An excellent buy. Don't kid yourself into buying a PC just to save $500 on a similarly speced laptop. I switched from PC's with this laptop and I've never looked back. Very solid performance, never crashes or freezes. period. The screen is so bright that the text is readable in direct sunlight! The speakers are excellent and get surprisingly loud.
Pros Beautifully designed as it is powerful
Cons Would have liked a media card reader
Summary I don't recall ever being this excited about owning any gadget before.
Being a long time windows user I finally took the plunge and got myself a macbook pro. I thought it might take some time getting used to the operating system but I actually started to get confused and somewhat feeling like a fish out of water when I tried to use a windows machine after just a few days with my macbook pro.
Installations were a breeze on the mac- even for very large files.Not to mention that Leopard seems to be a very fast and smart OS unlike Vista which annoyed the crap out of me.
Love the multi-touch trackpad (who needs a right mouse key?)and the display is unlike anything I have ever seen before-- simply beautiful (get the anti-glare).
And I guess it's true-- once you go mac you can't go back!!
Pros Better graphics card, more ram, bigger hard drive, multi-touch, and new intel processors
Cons no magnetic closure, still only in 15 and 17 inch models, more usb ports
Pros Fast: Crushes audio/video apps even with heavy realtime FX.
Easy Expansion: Fast HD swapping, PCI Expansion.
Portable: Light, solid, great battery life.
Looks Great: Beautiful screen, aluminum unibody is flawless.
Cons Only 2 USB ports.
7200 HD has to be custom ordered.
Summary If your in the market for a laptop, PC or Mac, you owe it to yourself to check out the new MacBook Pro. Great performance in both Leopard and in XP: Vegas, ProTools, Final Cut, Aperture, Photoshop... for breakfast. Bootcamp makes it easier than ever to run a dual boot machine. Check it out yourself, you may just poo in your pants.
