This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro MD313LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop (NEWEST VERSION) (Personal Computers)

I recently made the switch from PC to Mac, and I can say that I’m not sure why I waited so long. Considering that I have only had my computer a few weeks I can’t say much about the durability and longevity of the hardware, but I can say that the operating system (mine shipped with Lion) and software is top notch.

I labored for a long time trying to decide whether the 13″ MacBook Pro (MBP) or MacBook Air was the right choice for me. I liked the form factor, screen resolution and weight of the Air, but couldn’t get comfortable with the comparatively small hard drive and the RAM fixed at 4GB. Considering these factors along with the significant price premium for an Air, I decided that the MBP was right for me.

I also thought long and hard about whether to go with the base model with the 2.4Ghz i5 processor and 500 GB HDD or the 2.8Ghz i7 processor with the 750GB HDD. after looking at reviews and benchmark tests I decided that for my uses, the less expensive model would be perfect and that the incremental added performance of the more expensive model is not worth the additional cost. When large solid state drives become more affordable I will probably switch my HDD out, but until then 500GB should provide plenty of storage.

I opted to get my computer locally, but purchased the Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2), 204-pin SODIMM, DDR3 PC3-10600 Memory Module (CT2KIT51264BC1339) from Amazon for a great price. Once I got my computer home I installed the RAM in 10 minutes, start to finish. If you are planning this upgrade just be sure that you have the right Phillips head screwdriver.

After using this computer for the past few weeks and carrying it on weekly business trips I am very pleased with my choice of computers. It handles the Microsoft office suite flawlessly, and the added ram allows me to open and view very large pdf files without any lag. I have done minor video and photo editing on this computer and it performed very well. The added weight compared to the
Air hasn’t proven to be too noticeable, but I am a big guy at 6’4″ and 210 pounds.

So far I am pleased with this computer and my Mac experience overall. The process of learning a new OS and overall user interface was daunting at first, but Apple has done a great job creating a system that is intuitive and easy to learn.

I would recommend this computer to anyone looking for a new laptop that they expect to have for awhile and would like to be able to customize to fit their needs.

I waited a month before writing this review to make sure my initial impression would hold up & it did.

MacBook Pro’s -

1. Track Pad (Fantastic!)
2. No Trial Software (everything installed is fully functional – no more nag screens)
3. Battery Life (I get around 5 or 6 hours on a charge)
4. Incremental Backups with Time Machine (You can use almost any external HD instead Apple’s expensive Time Capsule)
5. Support is Awesome (Nuff said)
6. It’s Just Plain Sexy (No more Windows bricks for me…)

MacBook Con’s -

1. No HDMI out
2. USB Ports too close together
3. Steve Jobs is Dead

If you’re a long time Windows user; ask yourself if this story sounds familiar?

You’ve got a girlfriend/boyfriend who annoys you on a daily basis, but you stick with her/him year after year because you don’t want to spend the time learning the ins & outs of a new one?

Then one day, a sleek, sexy chick/dude catches your eye & you start hanging out with her/him & pretty soon you’re kicking that old broad/bum out on the street.

That’s me & Microsoft.

I started; decades ago, as a DOS user with an 8088 machine & continued all the way up to Windows 7.

I’ve got a new girlfriend now & she blows the old one away.
The old one just blows.

The MacBook Pro line is, of course, at the top of Apple products. The setup of this machine was smooth. I was able to transfer all of the data and applications from my previous MacBook Pro to this new gadget without any issues at all. At setup it asked if I had another Mac I wanted to use to load documents, etc, from and it gave me an option for methods of doing so.

The picture quality is simply incredible, I love that the keyboard is backlit, and the touchpad is so streamlined it actually makes it easier to use. It is faster. It has more memory. It’s, without a doubt, the best laptop I’ve ever owned. I’m constantly on the go, so the thin size of the laptop is also a huge plus. I should of bought a laptop sleeve when I first bought my Mac, my only regret. After spending over a grand on this amazing device, I’m doing like everything I can to protect it.

I highly recommend getting some type of laptop sleeve with it, Laptop Sleeve 15 inch Neoprene Surf Art Style, there’s something about this particular design that I just love. Makes such a difference now that I use it daily. Besides the actual case being lightweight and tough, it fits my Mac like a glove, I recommend it. In summary, the Apple Macbook Pro is second to none. The speed of the processor alone is worth the purchase price, my internet speed literally tripled when I first got online with my Mac. Highly Recommended!
