Strength. Lightness. Beauty. Seamlessly integrated. MacBook Pro is machined from a single piece of aluminum, an engineering breakthrough that replaced many parts with just one. It's called the uni-body. And the first time you pick up a MacBook Pro you'll notice the difference it makes. The entire enclosure is thinner and lighter than other notebooks. It looks polished and refined. And it feels strong and durable - perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.

  1. First, a little background. Aside from a TI-99 we had when I was a kid and the Apple IIc computers at my middle school, I’ve always been a Windows guy. I feel very comfortable in the Windows environment and have been building my own PCs for about 15 years. I don’t hate Microsoft. But when the need for another laptop became clear, I decided to focus my search on the higher end machines. I wanted good horsepower, but I especially wanted a nicer form factor than the creaky Dells I had become accustomed to. As I had fallen in love with the interface on my iPhone, I decided it was time to give MacBooks a try. I kept my Windows desktop in case I ran into compatibility problems.The short version of that story is that I quickly dismantled my PC and now use this laptop as my only machine. I am fortunate to be able to do so because my work as an attorney requires only Word, Excel, and an internet browser. As a bonus, my copy of Lightroom 3 also installed on the MacBook. I’m trying not to sound like a Mac zealot, so let’s have a list:-Aluminum unibody is no marketing gimmick. It’s sturdy and feels great with no flex and no creaking. Looks nice, too.-Keyboard is well-engineered. The key travel and spacing between keys feel just right for my taste. There is no flex here, either, which I often find disconcerting on other laptops.-Trackpad is a marvel. It really is. It’s very large, but I’ve yet to feel like it’s in the way. And the finger movements are intuitive and work very well.-The screen is bright, clear and has great color. The reflectivity is sometimes an issue in bright locations, but I find tilting it a little solves most problems. Otherwise, you can custom order the anti-glare screen direct from Apple.-The lid closes with a magnet, so there’s nothing to break.-It is very fast. In my experience, Mac OS X starts up and shuts down far faster than a comparably spec’ed Windows machine. I have yet to feel a need for 8 GB of RAM, but an upgrade would only cost $90 if you know how to do it yourself. Otherwise, I have no issues running lots of standard programs at once.-Comes with Time Machine. As an attorney and amateur photographer, I have lots of stuff that needs to be backed up regularly and reliably. Time Machine works so well and so seamlessly that I can’t imagine how I survived before.-Spotlight is brilliant. Type in any word, and Spotlight almost instantly gives you results from your entire hard drive, including INSIDE your searchable documents, preferences, web results, and even definitions of words.-Seven hours of battery life is very possible, even on wireless. I can sit in Starbucks for hours unplugged and still have plenty of life left. The caveat is that you really can only surf and use programs like Word. I also have Flash installed, which is a huge battery drainer, so I grabbed a Flash-blocking program that let’s me choose which Flash files to activate. Nice solution.-HD webcam. Nice quality, though I haven’t really done more than messed around with it.-The magnetic power cable is slick.-As a former Windows user, I find the Mac OS X interface to be really nice and intuitive. There’s obviously a learning curve, though I’ve found it be surprisingly short. Lion is anticipated to be a nice upgrade, too.-PRICE! Well, a lot of people complain about the Apple premium, and it definitely exists. I found this laptop to be a few hundred dollars higher than the really nice Windows laptops with mostly similar specs, although I don’t think comparing raw horsepower between two different operating systems is always an accurate benchmark. I live on my computer, so I’m willing to pay a little more to get what I want. It’s like buying a BMW because you have to spend three or four hours a day in your car. Whether that value equation works for you or not is up to you and your checkbook.-Anything I dislike? Not really. I’d like maybe one more USB port and a CF card reader. I’d love to start seeing cheaper SSDs in these things, but that’s really not Apple’s fault. Decent SSDs with any size are still expensive for everyone. I was a little nervous about having a 5400 RPM HDD. I think transferring large NEF files from the card reader might be fractionally slower. The tradeoff in battery life is probably worth it. Will Thunderbolt be worth it? Who knows? I don’t care just yet, but ask me next year.I know there’s more to say, but I’m running out of steam. I’m happy to discuss anything in the comments.

  2. I used the Mac from 1984 to 1995 at which time I switched to Windows, since I retired and was starting to work as a computer consultant and the people who needed help were all Window users. After making a good income helping Window users for over ten years, I bought an iPhone and was so impressed I decided to look into the current Macs. What a pleasant surprise. It’s really a joy to again use a computer that is fun to use and you don’t have to spend all that time keeping it running, as I did in Windows. I still have a need to run a few programs in Windows, such as Access, so I installed Parallels Desktop for the Mac 6 and can now use Windows when I have no other choice. The MacBook Pro 15 is without a doubt the best investment I have made in years. If you want to see what the computers of the future are going to look like checkout the last Macs.

  3. I just upgraded from the 2011 15 inch 2.0ghz MBP to the 2011 2.2 mostly because of the graphics card upgrade to a full gb. I also installed a new owc 240 gb mercury extreme pro 6g ssd along with 8gb of memory. To me it didnt make a whole lot of sense to spend that much money on extras and not go for the higher end model 15 inch.Ill be honest the 2.0 ghz version with 256mb of vmemory was more than enough and performs very well in comparison to the 2.2 version. Most people would never know the difference if they took the pepsi challenge.I am a label whore however and I couldnt sleep at night knowing there was more out there.The smart move and most cost effective however wouldve been to upgrade the 2.0 version mbp with probably the most stable and most reliable ssd in my opinion on the market and thats the samsung 470. it has a 3gbs data transfer rate so its not as fast as those in sata III and at 6gbps but again the difference in real world computing scenarios is negligible. It isnt however apple friendly and neither are the firmware updates if you have a mac.I wanted the fastest while still conserving some reliability so an OWC ssd with a five year warranty and excellent customer service and the latest firmware included before shipment was the obvious choice over an OCZ. Both ssds are sata III and have a 6gbps data transfer rate.No other upgrade will make a bigger difference in the performance of your computer than an ssd. Dont waste your money on a substandard apple offering though, there’s a lot better offerings in both ssds and memory out there.I will also never purchase another computer through anyone other than Amazon.My first 2011 mbp in 2.2 ghz showed up after riding around in a ups truck in 115 degree Phoenix heat all day…I dont know how hot the inside of the truck was where the cargo is kept but the computer on arrival was nearly too hot to handle with my bare hands, I knew there would be issues.The display was loose and unstable when opened and the battery took a health hit showing just 90% health…unacceptable for a brand new 2000 dollar computer.I had zero problems getting a replacement and a morning delivery time. It was sent and arrived in one business day, and before I could send UPS’s goof back to amazon…I was already using my new one. The reliability, discount, plus zero tax always makes me wonder why anyone would buy anywhere else. Any way just my thoughts hope they may help someone.I did take one star for price and the cost of the apple name and like I said I wouldve been just as happy with the performance of the 2.0 ghz version if i werent so neurotic.Just one more quick edit…the free upgrade to lion from apple’s website couldn’t be easier.

  4. I use this device ONLY for Final Cut Pro version 7. I learned how to use FCP at my local CATV where Apple, no surprise, had a monopoly on the hardware. They are educators, yes? [That’s why our schools turn out increasingly weaker students. Oh, no, DOOHH, not another politically incorrect statement]. I did not want to relearn yet another film editing s/w with more expensive hardware and software. I had to add more memory to the laptop to make it work reasonably quickly. Too bad FCP is not platform independent.
