Best Entry Level - Apple MacBook Pro - The Best!
The Apple MacBook Pro Series has been around for the past several years. I have used the machines when they were first introduced on the market. This is the one of the new Apple MacBook Pro Unibody designed Macs. The system works great and the powerful Apple hardware allows this machine to last for the long haul.
The Apple MacBook Pro Machine is powerful, fast, elegant, and can handle everything that you throw at it. The machine has a cutting edge processor, great hard drive space, excellent RAM performance, built-in wireless and bluetooth, as well as a DVD Burner. The MacBook Pro Series also comes with Apple's built-in WebCam called iSight. This allows for video conferencing through AIM, Skype, or just augmented picture taking fun. The battery life on this model is extremely long between eight and nine hours depending on screen brightness and other system related software that are running.
The software that comes on the machine is Apple's OS X. The system is extremely stable and the auto-update feature is great as it alerts you when new updates are available for your Apple System. In addition, a software suite called iLife which includes iMove (to create movies), iDVD (to make DVD discs), iWeb (Create Custom Websites that can be published on the Apple MobileME Service), and iPhoto (to edit and catalog / view photos) standard with every Apple Computer you purchase. Each of these program run very well and can help any home user create professional looking media.
Please note that one application suite that the Macintosh does not come with is the Microsoft Office 2008 Suite. It does not have Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Entourage Standard. You must purchase this suite from Apple as an add-on, Microsoft, Staples, or any other retailer who sells the software.
Overall, when the next generation Apple MacBook Pro comes out I would most likely purchase the computer again. The machine has a great design, easily gets through any tasks such as Internet Browser, making a Hollywood Movie, Office Productivity, and much much more. On the side of the unit it has ample USB ports, monitor out, audio out, and ethernet. The machine is thin and light weight and the all-in-one design is great. However, should the machine fall or crack due to the uni-body design the whole base would have to be replaced in turn costing a lot of money.
I would recommend an Apple Computer to anyone the Virus Free Unix Based Platform is strong, reliable, and easy to use. You cannot go wrong purchasing one of these machines and on top of that you can even run Windows or Linux on them through boot-camp, VMware Fusion, or Parallels. The premium on price is definitely worth the money. This series MacBook comes with Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.4 GHz or Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.66 either model is great. The faster one will help you make the movie faster and offer you a larger hard drive.
Once you have your Mac you will not go back to PC - enjoy the simple life.
