Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Core i7) Review – Early 2011 w/ Thunderbolt (video)
4 April 2011
Excerpt: The new Apple MacBook Pro models released in early 2011 include the latest 2nd Generation Intel Core i family of processors , AMD graphics and a superfast thunderbolt connection. We’ve examined every inch, almost literally inside and out, for our MacBook Pro 15-inch early 2011 review and come to one...
Pros: Fast!, Handles multimedia creation and average gaming with ease, Great keyboard and trackpad, Bright beautiful screen with wide viewing angle and true color in most situations, Sound is good especially when using external quality headphones or speakers, OS X is a powerful operating system that is...

Excerpt: Apple has provided their line of Mac Book Pros some much needed boost in juice with the introduction of Core i5 and i7 processors. While the exterior looks exactly the same (sorry to disappoint!), it’s a step in the right direction giving the Core 2 Duos the boot.
Excerpt: While our initial excitement dissipated quickly upon unpacking the Mac Book 13-inch and discovering a mundane Core 2 Duo processor, it was its larger sibling that caught (and retained) our attention. For many, including us, having a larger screen is quite important.
Summary: Core Update. Apple's 17 inch aluminum notebook has also been upgraded and now features a Core i5, Intel graphics and even an automatically switching GeForce GT330M. The performance benefits from this update greatly, but there is a catch under maximum load.
Pros: Excellent case, Light and mobile for a 17" notebook, Very good display, Excellent input devices, Very quiet, The unibody aluminum enclosure.
Cons: Few interfaces, Adapter too small - thus throttling in maximum CPU and GPU load, Intel HD Graphics OpenGL drivers not perfected, Throttled GT 330M, Sharp front edge, High price, Warm case, Ports and a lower price.
MacBook Pro Review Series: Intel Core i7 Processor Benchmark
4 May 2010
Excerpt: The new MacBook Pro I purchased a couple of weeks ago is by far the best Mac I’ve ever owned. There’s a lot to like about this machine, including the fact that it’s much faster to work with multimedia content than my old MacBook Pro.
Excerpt: Last week I bought a high-end 15″ MacBook Pro and have been very pleased with it so far. It’s significantly faster than my last MacBook Pro and I love the new display. However, there are a few things missing that should come as standard equipment on any notebook that’s priced over at more than...
Summary: By changing a few key components and optimizing them for its software, Apple has managed to once again drastically improve the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Not only does it perform much better than the previous version, its battery life has seen an impressive boost.
