Review Apple MacBook Pro 17 Early 2011 (2.2 GHz quad-core, glare-type screen)

Notebookcheck
29 March 2011
  • Summary: Apple's Figurehead. The MacBook Pro 17" is Apple's top-of-the line model as far as laptops go and stylishly combines powerful performance with excellent mobility. The most recent version now has a new hardware arrangement, offering a powerful duo consisting of the Core i7-2720QM and Radeon HD 6750M including GPU-switching technology. Sounds good, right? But how does the latest MBP measure up to the competition?
  • Pros: Simple Design, Very Sturdy Case, Trackpad, Keyboard Quality, Display: Bright, Good Contrast, sRGB, Keyboard Backlight, Application Performance, Graphics-Rendering, Battery Life in Mac OS X, Low System Noise under Light Use, Quite Portable for its Size, Speedy, Large Hard Drive, The unique combination of (usually) mutually exclusive characteristics like mobility, battery life and a powerful performance.
  • Cons: Clock Rate Drops under Heavy Use (Power Supply too Small), High CPU Temp under Heavy Use, Loud under Heavy Use, Small "Enter" Key, Reflective Screen, On-Board GPU Inactive in Windows..., ...Causing Shorter Battery Life, No UMTS, No Docking Port, No USB 3.0, No Blu-Ray Drive Available, Placement of Ports, Non-Removable Battery, Very Expensive, Short 12-Month Warranty, High Price for Built-to-Order Hardware, Much better Windows support and ports like UMTS, which frustra...

Análisis del Portátil Apple MacBook Pro 17" (Aluminium Unibody, 17", 9600M GT, T9550)

Notebookcheck.es
25 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Cambiar al diseño Unibody hizo al ya muy buen MacBook Pro 17 en la práctica aun mejor – en todo aspecto. Sin embargo, la batería no removible y la pequeña cantidad de puertos puede no dar buenos indicios para los recién-llegados. Comparado con los portátiles Windows, el MacBook Pro 17 surge como el portátil de 17 pulgadas más móvil del mundo . Dimensiones, peso, y duración de la batería que nunca antes fueron alcanzados en un sustituto de desktop.

Обзор ноутбука Apple MacBook Pro 17 2011 (четырехъядерный процессор, 2.2 ГГц, глянцевый экран)

19 April 2011
  • Conclusion: MacBook Pro 17 - это, безо всяких сомнений, впечатляющий ноутбук. Такого исключительного сочетания высокой производительности, небольшого веса и длительного времени автономной работы мы еще не встречали. Он заточен под использование Mac OS X и только при работе в этой операционной системе вы сможете полностью реализовать потенциал ноутбука. Переключаемая графика, внушительное время жизни от батареи и множество аппаратных функций доступны только из-под Mac OS X.

  • Conclusion: Новый дизайн Unibody сделал и без того хороший во всех отношениях 17" MacBook Pro еще лучше . Однако несъемный аккумулятор и скромное количество портов может отпугнуть. По сравнению с Windows лэптопами MacBook Pro 17 – с амый мобильный 17 дюймовый ноутбук в мире. Размеры, вес и время работы –беспрецедентные для ноутбука. На прочный корпус Unibody можно положиться в путешествиях.
