Review by Noemi Ortiz

After using a regular 13-inch Macbook (which worked great), I wanted to have a laptop with a strong capacity to work with graphics and video editing software.  This laptop is a total high-performance machine.  With its sleek but sturdy aluminum shell, this computer has high functioning capabilities, lots of storage and memory and it functions quite smoothly. Having the 15-inch model was a good size balance (right between the 13-inch and the 17-inch).  Its interface is modern and simple.  It starts up and shuts down quickly and applications open up in mere seconds.

Other features include integrated Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth connectivity, an SD card slot, and two USB 2.0 ports.  It also comes with the Mac OS X Snow Leopard operating system as well as the iLife software suite, which includes the latest versions of iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand.   One of my favorite features is the photobooth, which I can pose and then edit to post online.

As I have worked on websites and use photo editing software, I could have various programs running simultaneously and toggle seamlessly between each one.  I’ve had a web editing program (Dreamweaver) open as well as Adobe Photoshop for editing images and even video.  Everything worked harmoniously well.   I can easily install programs and have them at my fingertips ready for use.   I never once had problems with the machine crashing due to having so many programs open.

It is suitable for the everyday user to the web/graphics professional.  In general, Macbook products have been reliable in my personal and professional use.  I’ve never had a problem with my Macbook Pro and I’ve used it for a few years.  It is one of the best laptops and it feels like you are working from a desktop with its large, clear display and comfortable keyboard.

Features:

  • Full-size backlit keyboard
  • Stereo speakers with subwoofers
  • Dimensions:14.35 x 9.82 x 0.95 inches (WxDxH)
  • Weight: 5.6 pounds
  • Multi-touch trackpad
  • 15.4 inch LED-backlit widescreen edge-to-edge clear display
  • Multi-touch trackpad
  • AppleCare Protection Plan

Highlights:

  • Very sleek and sturdy exterior
  • High Performance graphics
  • Up to 8-9 hours of battery life
  • Meets Energy Star 5.0 requirements

 Cons:

  • When I put on the protective cover, compared to my netbook, it feels bulky.  Also, if I have to add a laptop bag, you start to feel the weight.

I love how lightweight my netbook is, but when all is said and done, I’d highly recommend the Macbook Pro.  It’s highly dependable and  a quality buy.
