I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the MacBook Pro. all right I can…highly delighted. I’m super glad I didn’t waste all that ebay money on another dull smartphone. The bigger screen over the MacBook, 15 inch compared to 13 inches, makes for nicer browsing as does the seemingly better wifi connection, faster anyway.
I also find the keyboard nicer to use, the gaps on the MacBook between keys caused me to miss letters and the Pro keyboard, in my view, gives better feedback when typing. Th keyboard lights up when it gets darker which is a nice touch. I’m also convinced the Pro has better build quality, there is no squeakiness around the casing and the whole thing just feels rock solid.When sitting on my lap it there is also less heat coming through and the bigger size just makes it more comfortable on my legs…I don’t know why it just does.
Again, I must emphasise that I didn’t actually need this laptop and the better specs I will not use the sort of apps to take advantage of at any time but I just really really wanted one and I was in the fortunate position of being able to indulge myself big time. It does seem to take slightly longer to charge, is the battery bigger than the MacBook one, and if so then the battery when not on mains power also appears to go down slower. Crikey, I love this thing.
Prior to buying this one, I looked at MacWarehouse here in the UK as they are advertising new MacBook Pro’s for under £950, the 2.2ghz model with a 120gb hard drive. Sounds like a good deal and to be honest that model would have do, in other words if it broke down after 4 hours I wanted to be able to take it back, plus the extra 80gb hard drive is my future proofing for the next 3 years.
