  • 15in Apple MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz review

    Build Quality: 8/10
    Features: 8/10
    Value for Money: 7/10
    Overall: 8/10

    Except for a minor boost in processor speed, the new 15in 2.66GHz MacBook Pro is identical to the 15in 2.53GHz MacBook Pro it replaces. The minor speed boost, without a similar boost in price, can only be good news. And if you bought the 15in 2.53GHz MacBook Pro when it shipped in February 2009, you won’t have a bad case of buyer’s remorse.

    This is the most significant upgrade to the MacBook line-up in nearly three years and it is likely Apple will win over even more fans. Both the MacBook and the Pro are stylish but also offer serious computing power to go with the looks. With each new Apple upgrade there are improvements. These are usually subtle, but this time Apple has made a definitive leap. This is a computer that will serve its owner well for years and is robust enough to handle the rough and tumble of being ferried in and out of offices and airports. Crucially, the technological improvements should keep Mac fans happy, while also attracting fresh converts.

  • Apple MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (Late 2008) review

    The biggest disappointment with Apple's new MacBook Pro remains the withdrawal of the non-reflective matt screen option on the notebook’s display. And for anyone familiar with recent pre-Unibody models of Apple’s MacBook Pro, there is no appreciable performance benefit gained from the new processor and RAM. That’s only part of the story though, as the revised Multi-Touch trackpad’s versatility, along with the prestigious fit-and-finish of milled aluminium still combine to make make an attractive proposition for a state-of-the-art notebook computer.

    Apple's knack for design is untouchable and it has definitely reached the pinnacle of refinement in the super-sleek MacBook Pro.

    Highs:
    Rock-solid aluminum unibody; excellent display; large trackpad; power graphics card

    Lows:
    Expensive; screen glare; mediocre connectivity

    Bad:
    - No FireWire 400.
    - Glossy screen a potential distraction with no matte option.
    - Can't use both GPUs at once like that coming for Windows notebooks.
    - Expansion, screen still used to push users to a system they may otherwise not need.

    Good:
    - Sturdier, cooler, thinner aluminum chassis.
    - Still the performance champion; option for power-saving graphics a boon.
    - Trackpad a more effective use of space.
    - Colors 'pop' on the display.
    - Good notebook-class speakers.

    Inside and out, the new MacBook Pro 15-inch models—with speeds of 2.4GHz and 2.53GHz—have been remodeled, redesigned, and reengineered for a completely new laptop experience.

    The 15-inch MacBook Pro has always been a distinctive proposition, and the latest update does nothing to change that. If anything, Apple has further distinguished the machine from rivals, and not in entirely a conventionally positive way. There’s no denying that the casing and overall design is beautiful, that the interface is highly user-friendly and OS X Leopard remains an elegant alternative to the often muddled world of Windows. Power benefits from the latest Centrino 2 evolutions, and the switchable graphics put at least some of the choices of battery versus ability in the hands of the user. Yet the stubborn avoidance of what has now become mainstream features - memory card readers, eSATA, a 3G WWAN option - will only serve to marginalize the MacBook Pro with would-be buyers. Those who can live with - or work around - its few minor flaws will be rewarded with a solid performance, well-admired laptop.

    Apple's given its Macbook Pro a thorough makeover but, for all its charm, it's still overpriced.
