Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 2.5 GHz Mid 2012 Notebook

Notebookcheck
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

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Review

thinkdigit.com
4 October 2010
  • Summary: At Rs. 89,900, the latest Mac Book Pro 13 inch is certainly not for everybody. But its a rugged, highly functional piece of equipment that is also very easy on the eye. Not exactly value for money, but one would need to think very hard to find an Apple product that is. Just try to skip the Core 2 Duo version, if your budget permits it.
  • Pros: Built like a tank. We kid you not, Good performer, Great, polished interface
  • Cons: Not a significant hardware upgrade over its predecessor, Minor issues like sharp edges on the palm rest have been ignored, Not exactly value for money

  • Excerpt: If appearances matter in your line of work, then arming yourself with a MacBook Pro is a smart choice. But the 13in version of the MacBook Pro (Late 2011) is so much more than just a pretty face. The construction might be handsome but it is also very sturdy. Everything about the MacBook Pro just oozes quality.
