Well it’s not just another Mac review. I call it that because many people made reviews on this subject, but beside this, I will try to express only my personal impression about the… NEW 15′ MacBook Pro equiped with an 2,4 Ghz Inel Core i5 processor, 4GB DDR3 memory, NVIDIA GeForce GT330M with 256MB, and …. well, all the other functions that a normal Mac has, expect those Air models, wich I don’t know what where they invented for… the AIR models are just like an expensive jewelry that your friends can see, but it can’t do more that a smart phone, or an iPad?… patato – potato… sorry, I forgot what I was talking about….
So, getting back to the PRO model, the first impression when opening the box was as great as every Christmas. Tha Apple packaging always amasses me 🙂 Moving forward…. for someone who had a Mac before, the design will not impress you so much, not that is not ok, just that is the same… 🙂 at least I was not impressed. Now that I think about it, nothing really impressed me in the first 5 minutes of configuring and using it, because it was exactly the same as the other models. So I’ve started to think, why pay so much? Because you have to admit tha the price is at least double in comparison with a laptop that has the same tech specs, from another manufacturer. And after 10 minutes of setting up and personalizing, I started to have a nice feeling, one that I had before, and then I’ve realised! It was the feeling that I had the last time when I’ve used a Mac 🙂 I don’t know how do they do it, but they CAN make you forget how much you pay on it, because it’s so user-friendly that you what to “play” on it 24/7. I know it sucks for our lady friends… so? 🙂
As a recommended optional, you can opt for the non-glossy screen, in case you’re not a narcissist and you like seeing your face all the time on the reflective screen 🙂
Let’s not forget that you will not have to see blue screens, viruses and stuff like that, and if you really need to use a Windows-based app, this Mac has enough resources to install a VMware on it.
The only thing that didn’t pleased me, was the weight. 2.2kg, or something like that. Personally consider that too much to carry in a bag everyday. My personal laptop has about 1,1 kg, and even with that weight, after about an hour of walking through town, I fell the wight on my shoulder. This is a powerful laptop not so much perfect for a day-to-day mobility.
So, if you have the money, and you’re not just surfing the web and living on Facebook, this is the tool for you. It’s a great investment.
