Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch (Unibody)

PC Magazine
26 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Doubts about the redesigned keyboard, the touchpad, and the non-removable battery can be put to rest, because the Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch (Unibody) is as powerful as it is gorgeous.
  • Pros: 40 percent bigger battery. Unibody enclosure a sight to behold. Lightest in its class. Glass screen is a cinematic wonder. Antiglare option for photographers. Dual graphics chipsets. DDR3 memory. Multi-Touch touchpad. Rugged-like chassis.
  • Cons: Trails the competition in certain features: lacks the bigger hard drive, memory card reader, Blu-ray drive found in other systems.

Apple MacBook Pro 17in Thunderbolt review

IT PRO
2 March 2011
  • Summary: The 17in MacBook Pro is a powerful desktop replacement laptop that's also equipped with a great screen, long battery life, several useful design touches as well as a comfortable keyboard and touch pad too. It's expensive though and the lack of Blu-ray and security features will put off some.

Análisis del Portátil Apple MacBook Pro 17 pulgadas 2010-04

Notebookcheck.es
9 July 2010
  • Conclusion: El MacBook Pro de 17" es más rápido y un poco más económico, debido al nuevo procesador Core i y la GeForce GT 330M. Obtiene un poco más de duración de batería en promedio con el cambio automático entre tarjetas gráficas dedicadas e integradas.  Bastantes mejores en comparación al modelo del 2009.
