Review Apple MacBook Pro 13 Early 2011 (2.7 GHz dual-core, glare-type screen)

 

On the Edge. The speediest dual-core processor in a compact 13" c

Unchanged Excellent Aluminum Case; Outstanding Keyboard and Touchpad; Good Screen (except for reflections); Quiet Under Light Use

No Matte Screen Available; CPU Downsampling und Heavy Use (Windows); No CPU Turbo Boost in Windows

Of course the Core i5 starter model of the MBP13, but also the white MacBook or the 13" MacBook Air. In the Windows world, the less expensive Asus U36JC or the soon-to-be-released Timeline laptops from Acer.
