Okay, so I must’ve had my Macbook for almost a week now. I ordered it from Amazon and it arrived 3 days later with no hiccups. I ordered the 13″ MacBook Pro with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB RAM and a 250GB HDD.
Head on past the break for the full review.Hardware
I can’t fault this machine, the exterior is so beautiful, it adds a certain something to my bedside table. And then when you flip it open the angels sing, the keys are amazingly spaced out, and the writing that says “MacBook Pro” just makes you feel warm inside.
But when you boot it up is when the action starts, it boots in under 30 seconds and doesn’t struggle to load programs the moment your on, and in the time I’ve had it, it hasn’t frozen once.
I’ve gamed, multi-tasked, and downloaded and it just wont quit. And it really won’t, when Apple say 10 hour battery life… they mean it.
I haven’t used much of the storage, and I don’t plan on it, but 250GB seems generous enough to store rubbish to my hearts content.
I’ve only been on it a week, but OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) is incredible, it runs as smooth as you like teamed up with the 2.4GHz C2D. Although I haven’t had very long to explore, it is amazing, and I’m sure I’ll find plenty of new features as I go, but teamed with the hardware it works brilliantly. To be frank, if I could afford it, I’d have it on my desktop.
I have had no major problems yet, and hope I never will. It shuts down in about 3 seconds and is highly portable and versatile. The main feature that gets me though, is the multi-touch trackpad. It baffles me, you stroke it in numerous ways, for endless responses…
So overall, it is a product that I’d highly recommend and I guarantee the first thing that you will do… is stroke it, I did, and it was unforgettable.
