"Adds fast, efficient Intel Core i5, i7 processors, new Nvidia graphics, seamless switching between integrated, discrete GPUs..."
"At the top end of the price scale; still no HDMI, Blu-ray, or other high-end options."
"Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro keeps the same look and feel, but offers major internal changes, including an optional Intel Core i7 CPU, making it a very serious portable powerhouse."

This is a fast and reliable machine. I use my Macs for music and video production and this one is doing the job nicely. I opted for the 17" model because the 15" models no longer include the expresscard 34 slot and I have a couple that I often use (a 4 port USB and a 2 port FW800). Of course, a larger screen is always nice as well! Having all the ports (ethernet, FW800, mini display, expresscard, and 3 USB) on one side is kind of weird but not causing any real problems. I really miss having a firewire 400 in addition to the firewire 800 port.
The display is clear and bright, the keyboard nice (although I normally connect an external one) and the uni-body construction seems solid. Overall it's a fantastic computer that I expect to be using well into the future.
It's the best thing since slice bread. I already own other Apple products and this just put the icing on the cake. It's not noisy nor is it heavy. Also, it doesn't heat up like a normal laptop so it won't feel like it's burning your legs. The resolution is amazing and bright. I only wonder why I didn't get one before now. The battery lasts a long time and it's pretty fast. Right out of the box it's pretty simple to setup, and syncing it with another Mac computers is, as easy as, plugging in a Firewire cable to each and following the instructions on your new MacBook Pro. This is definitely a great investment that I will have around for years to come.
The MacBook Pro is very fast and a good computer. I am happy with what it has to offer in that manner. Were it lacks is in the Yahoo Messenger for Mac program. The Video Camera display is a small 2"x2" screen and you can not adjust it any bigger. I use Yahoo Messenger to talk to my wife while I am out of the country and that is its only downside to me.
The 2010 model of the Macbook Pro 17" is everything I could hope for in a laptop computer. I am an engineering student, so reliability, power and product support are paramount to me. The Macbook Pro is the perfect combination of the things I was looking for. I love the large screen that makes it easier to do my design courses and there is no feature on this Macbook that disappoints. The aluminum body is also a plus. You can tell that this thing was built with quality i mind. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase.
I bought one of these to use for work and I must say that I am more productive at work (using VMware and its Unity feature). The first thing I notice is how thin the laptop is which makes using it much much easier on my hands for typing. I also am big on using a mouse. I have a trackball mouse for my Windows machine at home but I have come to love the multi-touchpad on this machine. Gestures are easy to use and make you more productive with switching applications, windows easier. Also resizing items is a breeze. The OS, a spin off of BSD Unix is as one would suspect, fast, secure and just works. I can easily download apps from the App store ( can be addicting by the way ) which allows me to click once to purchase and its automatically installed and ready to use. Now I need an iMac for home use. :)
