As one that has owned many PCs, latops and towers, this MacBookPro 17"is the finest laptop Ive ever owned. I say this inspite of my buying it 2nd hand and 3 years old. It still runs almost every game and office application I own. After installing a virtual machine and making use of the BootCamp dual booting features, Im able to run my Windows Vista programs either in native windows or concurrently within the MacOS-X Snow Leopard platform. It is also the most stylish and sleek system Ive seen to date. I say this as the MBP is the first Mac computer Ive owned (not including the iTouch and iPhone). Sure I wish I had a newer and faster model, but I paid 1/3 or 1/4th the price of a new one. So Im more than content.
I've been using a Mac desk top for some time and now that I've switched from a PC notebook To my MacBook Pro I'll never go back to a PC. I love it when things actually work. Don't know how I've lived this long without it.
This was not your typical 17 inch MacBook Pro but a dual boot refurbished one with Lion and Windows Ultimate. There is a very large hard drive ,a faster processor and a lot of memory. It is like having two computers in one. I am a gamer and can do both Mac and Windows games on it. I really like the Photo Booth feature,typical to all MacBook Pro's.
There are drawbacks however. You have to buy programs,including anti-virus,for both sides.That can be costly.Some game sites are not designed to work on a dual boot machine. They will only work on one side of it,the Mac side. If you talk to a tech from a company they will tell you at first they do not know how to work on this computer until they go to their boss who tells them what to do.
Viewing just the features of the original computer,It is a bit heavy but has a sturdy metal casing. The larger screen is just right but then I have a 26 inch monitor for my Window desk top computer.
I like this laptop but it is not for everyone.
Very fast computer. Love the features and setup. Very easy to learn. There are tutorials all over the net to find out the ins-and-outs of how to navigate. Love the macbook pro!
I have always loved a mac. (since 1984) I spilled coffee on my laptop and had to replace it fast. So that is why I bought it.
