With its vast features and a Core 2 Duo upgrade, the MacBook Pro 15-inch easily sits among the elite.

Fastest Core 2 Duo processor available. Terrific performance scores. Best-looking laptop on the market. Now has a FireWire 800 port and can burn dual-layer DVDs

Battery life could be better

Unbelievable!!!

 

While I have the lower end Macbook Pro (2.16 Ghz C2D, 1GB RAM, 120 GB HDD) I am consistently blown away by it! With the extra port, the faster clock speed, doubled FSB, bigger HD, and so on, this is an incredible upgrade to the macbook pro line for the...

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop (LED backlit version) review

 

While the core element of the MacBook Pro hasn't changed, Apple has moved to upgrade and improve certain elements of the laptop. So should you upgrade now, does the new features give it a 9/10? We get working to find out. Choosing when to upgrade your...

Dual-core, power to spare, classic look, LED backlit, bigger graphics card, more battery

iSight not upgraded, no next-gen DVD players, remote will get lost and doesn't fit into the design

Yet more hardware tweaks keeps the MacBook Pro one to consider

Hot Product!

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.4GHz) review

 

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro gets a solid under-the-hood upgrade for better performance and longer battery life, allowing the MacBook Pro to put enough distance between itself and the lower-end MacBook to justify its higher price

Updated CPUs and graphics without an updated price ; LED-backlit display for better battery life ; 802.11n support

Minimal configuration options ; Only 90 days of complimentary technical support ; Still no media card reader

By upgrading to the latest Intel platform and Nvidia graphics forbetter performance, adding a new screen tech for better battery life,and keeping the same great design and same starting prices, the MacBookPro puts enough distance between itself and the...
