Apple MacBook Pro Summer 2009 (Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, 15-inch)

 

Editors' Note (April 13, 2010): Apple has updated its line of MacBook Pros with new Intel processors and improved Nvidia graphics. See CNET's coverage of the Spring 2010 MacBook Pros for more information.

Price cut from previous version; new SD card slot; keeps the same solid unibody construction and oversize trackpad.

Loses the ExpressCard slot; switching GPUs not as seamless as it should be.

Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro makes only minor tweaks to the previous version, but cutting prices and swapping the ExpressCard slot for an SD card slot are enough to make it a solid improvement over its predecessor.

My first Mac...never been happier!

 

This is a very nice system. The overall look is simplistic, yet appealing and the hardware meshes well together to create a system that performs near-flawlessly...even when heavy tasks are being performed on it. Makes a great Windows machine if you...

System is very well designed and comes with everything the average user would need and more. System is very stable and when loaded with Windows, it is easily one of the best Windows machines out there whether using VMware, Parallels, or Bootcamp

Gets very hot on the bottom after extended use and never even come close to the advertised battery life of the system. Might get 3 to 4 hours out of it. Strange random popping sound from speakers and gets annoying over time

"The Greatest Computer I Have Ever Owned!"

 

I love how when you buy it, it is ready to go... 

Great glossy screen, and Mac OS X has a great user interface. Apple Mail and Safari are great, as well as iLife and all the other things included with Mac OS X. The computer is well built, and looks pretty nice

Battery life goes way down when the screen is too bright, and that's all

The Greatest Computer I Have Ever Owned!

 

I love how when you buy it, it is ready to go. After I took it out of the box, I turned it on and set up my account, and then I was checking emails and browsing the internet. I can't stand how with other laptops you have to charge it for a certain...

Never been so glad to be an Apple user

 

This is the second Mac I have owned... I bought my first in 2007 when the first new Macbooks came out, the white ones. I fell in love with Apple. This past March I bought this little beauty, and I have to say I'm in love. I'm so glad I went with 15"...

Design--sturdy, sleek, durable, attractive; backlit keyboard; great screen; excellent airport capability; FAST FAST FAST; boots up quickly and is just generally responsible

Price, but you get what you pay for

The fastest laptop I ever owned, glitch-free, intuitive software, and the lit keypad in the evening is awesome. Typing is perfect for me, and the software is intuitive to run. MSOffice runs much better than on Windows. Rock solid construction

Adapters required for projectors at added expense, but readily available

New MacBook Pro Review at 6 Months

 

My prior computer was a Sony, and this MacBook Pro was a huge upgrade. I am still amazed at how fast it is, how it always wakes from sleep mode without a glitch (not so on Windows), and how easy Apple software is to run. I am still discovering fun...
