MacBook Pro 17-inch unibody review

 

There's not much that can be said about the 17-inch version of the MacBook Pro that hasn't already been said about the 15-incher (and to some extent, the MacBook). Still, the big, big brother of the family has a few key differences that make it stand...

Killer performance ; Anti-glare screen great for graphics work ; Excellent battery life

Review: MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2009)

 

Apple revamped nearly the entire Mac laptop line during WWDC, leaving only the $1599, entry-level white MacBook unchanged—and that model was revised just two weeks earlier. But while most models gained new capabilities, the 17-inch MacBook Pro was the...

This lower price also makes the 17-inch model more appealing to those considering the 15-inch MacBook Pro but who truly need an ExpressCard slot or who prefer a matte screen, as this is, sadly, the only Mac laptop still offering those features. And...

Shipping Issues

 

It's a great item- the computer runs very smoothly, just like I want it to, and I got everything I ordered in good shape. The shipping and upgrade problems were frustrating, but to be fair, customer service was very willing to work with me to sort...

Very clean computer. Works as the summary said it would. No scratches, no glitches

Shipping took a very long time. I called them during the delivery week to inform them I would be out of town and they STILL sent it back- to the other side of the country. They sent it back quickly, but the most recent update was also from nearly two...

Computing Masterpiece

 

Believe me, if you have the cash and you want your computer to become more akin to another part of yourself than something you just do work at this is the computer you want. I got a black MacBook when I went in to college and it was my first experience...

Good computer

 

Love this computer much more than my old PC. Highly recommend a laptop over a desk version to anyone - well worth the extra $

Love this computer!

 

I love my macbook. It's great for all types of computer users. You may not want to pay the price for the bigger screen and more features but it's worth it. They last and I've never had any problems with it.

Great Design, Easy To Use, Fast

A little pricey

Great computer, but doesn't really live up to the hype

 

I've been a PC user for my personal computer for 16 years and I've worked with Macs professionally on and off for 9 years. I was never a Windows fanboy or a Mac fanboy, I've always just wanted a machine that will do it's ...

Extremely fast, looks very pretty, easy to use

Poorly located USBs, still crashes
