It's cheaper, faster, has more consumer-friendly features and now even has a 13-inch option for people who need slightly more portability.

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro makes only minor tweaks to the previous version, but cutting prices and swapping the ExpressCard slot for an SD card slot are enough to make it a solid improvement over its predecessor.

Maybe it's because I've been staring at 13-in. screens for the better part of a year now -- starting with a MacBook Air and moving on to a late-model MacBook. For whatever reason, the 15-in. MacBook Pro seems larger than it is. This is a good thing. (More than one person asked me whether...

The 15-inch MacBook Pro has historically been the most popular model in Apple’s pro notebook lineup. It’s certainly easier to tote around than its more powerful and hefty 17-inch big brother, though its feature-to-price ratio compared favorably. Now, with Apple’s debut of a 13-inch MacBook...

Being a former hardcore gamer there really wasn't much of a choice for me when it came to computers. PC was the home of all games and your best bet for customization and having the ability to stay on the cutting edge of gaming tech. However, now that I've put my gaming years behind me...

I was given this laptop at work, I've used the 12 inch MacBook Pro and 13inch white MacBook. Feature and hardware wise this is on par with all Mac Products.

Not so long ago I decided that my next personal project would be to begin learning the skills required to develop software for the iPhone. After a bit of research I discovered that in order to do this I was going to need a Mac. I began looking at the various models available to see what was right...

So, I wasn't a Mac hater, but over the years I just didn't see the point. Why would I want to spend a premium for a computer when my Windows PCs could do everything a Mac could do and do it a lot cheaper? Especially after using Windows 7 for almost a year, Mac OS X held no attraction...

When rating my Macbook Pro, I was trying think of what I would like Apple to do differently in order to get a perfect ten... I could only think of one thing: instead of having an express card 34 slot have a built-in 3G modem. Realizing that this is the only thing people use express card slots...

Apple is known for their build quality, and with the Macbook Pro Unibody, they did not buck the trend. The Unibody construction make the Macbook Pro feel like a tank in your hands. The backlit keyboard is a breeze to type on. The trackpad has literally revolutionized its namesake. I was...

The unibody MacBook Pro does everything right and pretty much nothing wrong. The battery life is excellent, graphics power is astonishing, and screen is gorgeous. Plus, the aluminum unibody construction is incredibly solid. If you drop this thing (hopefully not), I have no doubt that it'll...

I liked this laptop. It was an excellenet machine to run Windows Vista/7 or Mac OS X on. It was fast for the time and I liked that it had a user-replaceable battery. The time to get the new battery was a negative for me (at a year mark Apple no longer carried the batteries in stock in their local...
