I'm almost to the ex-PC fan mode. This machine is awesome. Comparible in performance to my Toshiba Qosmio X505 at half the weight and with a better screen hosting WUXGA native. The battery under continuous usage is still functional 5 hours later. The hard drive performance lacks a bit at only 5400 rpm.
The Apple OS-X starts and stops in seconds versus minutes for the Windows 7 machines. Just shut the lid and it is sleeping before you can lift it off its perch.
Now to the lower rating point. A comparable laptop (i7/4GB/750@5400/1920x1080-NOT WUXGA) can be purchased for half the price and you will get twice the carry weight.
But as a final positive, Lion includes BootCamp which allow dual boot and I have a nice Win7 Ultimate box along with a spectacular OS-X machine. As an alternative VMware Fusion 4 is only $50 to add windows in VM that interacts directly with the OS-X
Yes, Macbook Pros are more expensive then PCs. You want to know why? It's because they are a perfect balance of power and efficiency. Not only can this handle everything I throw at it, but it has the ability to withstand punishment from a power user and maintain a fabulous battery life in the process. This computer only requires a 85W power adapter and can last a good 7 hours with moderate screen brightness. Apple doesn't put junk in their computers. Even if you get a base model it's still going to be far ahead of what you'd receive in a PC computer and it's going to last. This computer will maintain it's value for years to come and the components are so solid that I won't need to worry about anything going wrong and it will ALWAYS work. Yes, I'm still going to buy AppleCare for it. That's because I love Apple and don't mind giving them more of my money for my peace of mind. Do yourself a favor and get a real computer. Buy an Apple.
This is the last of the native-boot for Snow Leopard...which means being able to run older software relying on PPC encoding and needs to use 'Rosetta'. Also, no iOS built-in! ;-D Great machine and very versatile. I upgraded it to 16GB of memory and the new line of Seagate Momentus XT 750GB HD. Testing Win8 on it and it has not crashed at all. Crazy good machine for the 'less' money spent!
I'm an Apple fan and a Macbook Pro fan, so no surprises here. It's an amazing machine. It's fast as lightening with a SSD (and an extra 1TB drive for storage. (It's been customized) Mountain Lion runs nearly flawlessly as far as I can tell. I got the glossy screen because i love the way movies/videos look. It's got the now discontinued 17" screen. I am VERY disappointed that Apple has discontinued 17" screens for their Macbooks.. They look wonderful.
you are definitly overpaying for a mac and especially this one here. 2600 for a computer with 4gb of ram and 500 gb of space it is definitly not worth it, go ahead and buy a pc and save yourself some money!
