  • Excerpt: Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro offers excellent battery life, an improved screen, and the much-requested SD-card slot, all at a price lower than that of its predecessor. Add your own copy of Windows, and you can swap between it and OS X, making for an extremely versatile notebook.
  • Pros: Excellent battery life, Bright, vibrant screen, Superb industrial design, Can run both Mac OS X and Windows, Integrated SD-card reader
  • Cons: No matte screen option, Low audio volume when running Windows, Missing ExpressCard/34 slot found on earlier MacBook Pros

Review: Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch

Wired
20 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Mac haters, get ready to seethe. The MacBook Pro 15-inch isn’t just the best Mac around, it’s one hell of a PC. Even when running a non-native OS (Windows, that is), this Mac makes a mockery of its competitors in gaming tests and laps its rivals in battery life.
  • Pros: Astounding gaming performance — even trumped a ,800 Alienware machine. Unrivaled battery life of three hours of DVD playback at max screen brightness. Performs just as well in the form of a Windows PC as it does as a Mac.
  • Cons: Just two USB ports and none of the fancy stuff like HDMI, eSATA, Blu-ray drive or even a lousy SD slot. Expensive.

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009) review

PC Advisor
16 July 2009
  • Summary: It’s not the cheapest 15in laptop currently available, but the new Apple MacBook Pro is arguably the best that money can buy today. Only the poor screen quality really lets down an otherwise near-perfect machine.

Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch review

Digital Arts
11 January 2009
  • Excerpt: This model is based on Intel’s relatively new Santa Rosa platform. Its Core 2 Duo chip speed has gone up from 2.33GHz to 2.4GHz but the real story is the laptop’s underlying infrastructure, which gives a surprisingly large performance leap.
  • Pros: Excellent screen. Powerful. Small & light. Innovative features.
  • Cons: Single button trackpad.

  • Excerpt: The 17in Macbook Pro features a similar design and immaculate finish to the 13in and 15in Macbook Pro models in Apple's line-up. With its big 17in (1920x1200) screen you may think it's not the most appropriate size to go for, but its lean body and slimline styling made it more versatile than we...
