Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch (Unibody)

 

Doubts about the redesigned keyboard, the touchpad, and the non-removable battery can be put to rest, because the Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch (Unibody) is as powerful as it is gorgeous.

40 percent bigger battery. Unibody enclosure a sight to behold. Lightest in its class. Glass screen is a cinematic wonder. Antiglare option for photographers. Dual graphics chipsets. DDR3 memory. Multi-Touch touchpad. Rugged-like chassis

Trails the competition in certain features: lacks the bigger hard drive, memory card reader, Blu-ray drive found in other systems
