Review Apple MacBook Pro 15" v5 2008 (Unibody, 9600M GT + 9400M)

 

Alu-Block Pro 15". The new Apple MacBook Pro notebooks, the 5th ...

Design ; Workmanship ; Stability ; Best touchpad so far ; Switchable graphics ; Very good emissions with 9400M ; Very bright screen ; Performance

Reflecting display ; In order to switch the graphics it is still necessary to logout. ; Key labels fulfil just minimum requirements ; Price ; Only few interfaces

Review: MacBook Pro (15-inch, late 2008)

 

Still a great portable from Apple in spite of some quirks.

Sturdier, cooler, thinner aluminum chassis ; Still the performance champion; option for power-saving graphics a boon ; Trackpad a more effective use of space ; Colors 'pop' on the display ; Good notebook-class speakers

No FireWire 400 ; Glossy screen a potential distraction with no matte option ; Can't use both GPUs at once like that coming for Windows notebooks ; Expansion, screen still used to push users to a system they may otherwise not need

The MacBook Pro has always been the bigger, faster, more advanced (and more expensive) version of the MacBook. While most people will likely find the $1,299 MacBook suitable for everyday work, some people might need or prefer the pricier MacBook Pro.

Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.66GHz review

 

As far as upgrades go, the top-of-the-line 15-inch MacBook Pro's makeover is far from extreme. But we're not going to complain if Apple chooses to gently goose the processor speed a little bit without expecting a dime more for the effort.
