Apple MacBook Pro 2008 Edition review:

 

Editors' note: As of June 2009, the product reviewed here has been replaced by these updated models .

Updated CPUs, improved battery life, adds touch pad gestures from the MacBook Air.

Small performance premium over the cheaper 13-inch MacBook; only 90 days of toll-free technical support; still no SD card reader.

A solid, if predictable, upgrade to the MacBook Pro line, but noteworthy for stealing the MacBook Air's best feature--expanded gesture controls for the touch pad.

We're still not fans of Apple's nearly obligatory extended warranty upsell (so much so that we've simply copied this complaint from our last MacBook review). The default warranty for the MacBook is one year of coverage for parts and labor, but...
