"Lukewarm feeling"on by elainelian
Pros pretty and thin, processor update
Cons value of new features is dubious for consumer
Summary This new incarnation of the MBP left me with a lukewarm feeling. I tried it, mostly out of curiosity. No - I won't be replacing my current MBP with this. I definitely don't like the new screen. I just see no point in making it look like a giant iPod touch. I definitely don't like the new trackpad because nothing was wrong with the regular one. I don't understand the convenience of being able to click anywhere on it. Lastly, I don't appreciate the new video jack. I often connect my MBP to the TV via HDMI, using a DVI-to-HDMI cable. For what I was told, the new connector is proprietary and only good for Apple displays. I will leave the other changes to the techies because I am a consumer and I see no value in the technological nuances.
Pros Faster processor with 2.53G with faster bus and cache, larger and faster HD 320g 7200rpm, new glossy screen, faster 4G ram, OSX Leopard, new very sturdy one piece body.
Cons Hate the new keyboard, getting used to the new trackpad, do not like the sharp edges of the new body, although I do love the sturdiness
Summary Great upgrade. I own 3 laptops; this one, an HP dv9000t, 100G 7200RPM HD, 2G Ram, 2.0 Intel Duo Core; Early 2008 MacBook Pro (wife's) 2.4G Intel Duo Core, 200G 7200 RPM HD, 2G Ram. This is the class of the group. Better display, more sturdy and much faster. I hate to knock any of the three, I really love the HP and would highly recommend it if you want a windows unit. But my new MacBook Pro is the best of the group.
"Worth The Wait!"on by TheEraser07
Pros Powerful OS
Cons No Blu-Ray
Summary I've waited almost 2 years for this computer! It was definitely worth the wait. I've argued with a lot of PC users about how you can buy a similar PC for cheaper, but when apple revolutionized the market with this one of a kind design, there is no comparison.
I've been reading that the NVIDIA graphic processors WILL be able to be switched on the fly and/or run at the same time via a software update in the near future. This will quiet those that have a problem with logging out to change the speed.
If you've been thinking about getting one...just get it man! This computer's da bomb!
Pros touch pad, display, backlit keyboard, blinding speed
Cons could use more ram and a bit cheaper
Summary best laptop yet
