Apple MacBook Pro 15.4in Notebook


We quite liked the new MacBook, but what does Hugo think of its bigger sibling?

However, I'm getting slightly ahead of myself. The MacBook Pro does have some redeeming features and it would be extremely negligent of me not to give them due discussion. Without further ado, then, let's dive in.

Apple MacBook Pro


The new 17-inch MacBook Pro finally brings the top end NVIDIA 9600M GT graphics, all in one aluminium shell, redesigned keyboard and all in one trackpad to the big brother of Apple's laptop line. The good Apple could have just taken the new 15 inch...

Text size


Having endured years of Windows i decided to splash out on a Mac Pro 13. Whilst this is an excellent product the text sizing is smaller and therefore visually annoying and tiresome. There are some methods to increase text size but i think Mac would do...

Excellent, no complaints


Bought this to replace a 10 year old Mac. Went for HDD for its sturdiness as opposed to SSD. Migrated all data from the previous laptop overnight. So far so good. Recommend this over any Windows platform.
