Apple MacBook Pro 2.3GHz Sandy Bridge 13.3" Review (2011 Model)

 

After Apple released their new line of Macbook Pros on Feb. 24, many users thought Apple would do a basic performance bump of the system's hardware and send it out the door to consumers. They predictably included Intel's latest Sandy Bridge processors,...

Even with faster processors and graphics, the new MacBook Pro lasts an amazing 7 hours on a single charge.

Apple MacBook Pro (2.4GHz)

 

Boasting what Apple describes as a “precision aluminium unibody enclosure”, the latest MacBook Pro is crafted from a single block of aluminium. Apple'...

Design, aluminium enclosure, backlit keyboard, dual graphics setup, glass trackpad with multi-touch, green/energy efficient

Touchpad has spots with poor response, poor viewing angles, glossy display can be distracting, hard drive only 5400rpm, graphics switch requires log-out

Apple’s greenest notebook ever is also one of its best. The MacBook Pro is overpriced, but you certainly get a powerful and exquisitely designed machine for your hard-earned cash. It's not perfect, but using it is a largely positive experience on the...

Apple MacBook Pro (2.5GHz-15.4")

 

This truly is a five-star laptop, thanks to the performance boost and array of enhancements, including that intuitive trackpad

Beautiful, detailed display ; Luxurious sprung keyboard ; World-class processing speeds ; Doubled video RAM ; Lower-power processor and screen ; Excellent connection options

The Penryn chips can carry a larger L2 cache, circuitry that speeds access to commonly used data, and this has changed. It has dropped to 3MB (from 4MB) on the entry-level 2.4GHz MacBook Pro, while being raised to 6MB on the other two models

Apple MacBook Pro (2.16GHz-17")

 

The Macbook is full of features behind a rugged chassis

Great design, Magsafe power connector, Connectivity, Clear display

Standard hard drive size could be larger, Expensive

The keyboard, flanked by speaker grills, seems to sit oddly balanced against empty space (save the track-pad) below. Ports punctuate either side of the inch-thick chassis, while a slot loading optical drive is positioned on the front right. The MagSafe...

Apple MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (Late 2008) review

 

Apple's MacBook Pro laptops have retained essentially the same form factor since before the Intel processor transition, using the aluminium PowerBook G4 as a template. Now five years on, Apple has updated the line with a wholly new approach to laptop...

The biggest disappointment with Apple's new MacBook Pro remains the withdrawal of the non-reflective matt screen option on the notebook’s display. And for anyone familiar with recent pre-Unibody models of Apple’s MacBook Pro, there is no appreciable...

Apple MacBook Pro (2.66GHz, 17-inch)

 

A little late to the party, Apple's redesigned 17-inch MacBook Pro joins the 15-inch model with a redesigned aluminium body, new trackpad with expanded functionality, and a dual graphics set-up for either longer battery life or better performance.

New aluminium unibody construction comes to the 17-inch model ; Useful multi-touch trackpad gestures ; Attractive edge-to-edge glass on display ; Dual graphics provide more power or more battery life

All-clicking trackpad is a bit awkward ; Matte screen option costs extra ; Switching GPUs is not as seamless as it should be

Apple MacBook Pro 2.53GHz

 

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro received a design overhaul and now includes the unibody chassis built from a single piece of aluminium, a multi-touch glass trackpad, a new black screen bezel, and black keys.

Outlook With a brand new design and powerful integrated and discrete graphics under the hood, the MacBook Pro is a compelling purchase even if you already own the older model.

Apple MacBook Pro 2.4GHz (Late 2008) review

 

Apple's new Unibody MacBook Pro gains a better chassis but loses out on screen legibility. So how does it measure up?

Unlike Centrino 2 and AMD Puma platforms, switching between the integrated and discrete graphics is not automatic and requires the user to log off and log back in. Not very convenient, but hopefully we'll see automatic graphics profile switching in the...
