Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 2.5 GHz Mid 2012 Notebook
8 August 2012
Summary: Entry-level "Pro". Apple's MacBook Pro series has been enjoying great popularity for many years now. The notebooks from Cupertino offer high performance, look great, and seem to retain their value better than any competitor's product. In the past, the 13-inch MacBook Pro appeared to be the unloved stepchild of the family. Have things changed in 2012?
Pros: - excellent build quality, - good display, - large trackpad with comprehensive gesture support, - long battery life, - compact dimensions, - comparatively high performance, The construction is exemplary. The notebook is sturdy yet compact. Even though the display lid is very thin, it's torsionally rigid. Keyboard and touchpad are top-notch.
Cons: - low display resolution, - slow hard drive, - SSD at a premium, - battery not user exchangeable, - fan is loud under load

17 April 2011
Summary: On the Edge. The speediest dual-core processor in a compact 13" case with quiet fans? Find out why this might be a problem for Windows (Bootcamp) users but of little significance for Mac OS X users.
Pros: Unchanged Excellent Aluminum Case, Outstanding Keyboard and Touchpad, Good Screen (except for reflections), Quiet Under Light Use, The seamless unibody case

Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 Early 2011 (2.3 GHz dual-core, glare-type screen)
17 April 2011
Summary: The Little Guy. The smallest MacBook Pro with a 2.3 GHz Core i5 is the least expensive of Apple's MacBook Pro series. Not much has changed on the outside, but a whole new world awaits within. Will these novelties help or hinder the featherweight contender?
Pros: Low System Noise Under Light Use, Unibody Case, Keyboard, Bright, High-Contrast Display, Color Space, Performance, Battery Life Under Light Use, An overall well-rounded laptop with very high-quality case and excellent display
Cons: Few Ports, Few Options, Relatively Heavy, Small Enter Button, Loud Under Heavy Use, CPU Clock Downsampled Under Very Heavy Use, Reflective Screen, Short Warranty, More ports and the option of a matte screen
Conclusion: The MacBook Pro is a dream laptop, delivering more power than the Air and more bells and whistles too—the FireWire and Ethernet ports the Air lacks completely, plus that fancier FaceTime camera, and our personal favorite, the backlit keyboard. Thunderbolt is cool to have, but not a reason to run out and upgrade today if you have a Mac laptop you’re happy with.
Pros: Speedier processor. Thunderbolt port for a little future proofing. High-def FaceTime camera records 720p video in iMovie. FireWire is still around.
Cons: At 1440x900, 13-inch MacBook Air has a higher-resolution display. Built-in battery can’t be removed. No matte display option.
Apple MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Sandy Bridge 13.3" Review (2011 Model)
11 March 2011
Excerpt: After Apple released their new line of Macbook Pros on Feb. 24, many users thought Apple would do a basic performance bump of the system's hardware and send it out the door to consumers. They predictably included Intel's latest Sandy Bridge processors, which integrates an HD Graphics 3000 processor with the CPU, but they also became the first company to adopt Intel's new Thunderbolt technology.
Summary: Another year of incremental improvements for the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro help it maintain its lead as a useful, powerful, attractive midsize laptop, but the competition is closer than ever to catching up.
Pros: A faster processor, improved graphics, and USB 3.0 highlight a series of internal improvements in the new 15-inch MacBook Pro .
Cons: The unchanged design is starting to feel a little dated. Any real structural changes, HDMI, higher-res displays, were reserved for the Retina display version of the MacBook Pro.
Conclusion: Though it's only a component bump, the MacBook Pro 13-inch (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz) is still a solid back-to-school, mainstream laptop.
Pros: Better battery life than its predecessors. Speed and memory bumps help performance. Unparalleled multi-touch gestures., Backlit keyboard. Excellent software bundle. Sturdy. Best looking chassis in its class.
Cons: Intel Core 2 Duos are an aging processor technology. Heavy for a 13-inch laptop.
