Weighing in at 6.6 pounds, this little dynamo is much stronger than it looks and comes loaded with all the extras that make Apple a household name, such as an integrated, FaceTime HD camera and dual graphic display processors.Featuring a 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor for zippy computing, this Apple MacBook is powered by four separate processing cores. Popularly known as a "Quad-Core," these four separate cores are all contained on a single silicon chip. For most activities, users will only use 2.4GHz of power, but this core processor technology also includes the Intel turbo boost, which automatically increases processing speed to 3.5GHz whenever it's necessary. This is a serious amount of power and ensures optimal performance for both work and play.The visuals of the MacBook Pro make it a great choice for multimedia works, and the 17-inch display makes it easy to watch a video in a high-definition format. Gamers will love it, too. Along with the 2.4GHz processing speed and turbo boost core technology, this MacBook Pro comes with dual graphic processors, an Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor, and an AMD Radeon HD 6770M. The system automatically switches between these two graphics cards to meet demand, so even all sorts of graphically demanding webpages and programs will always look crystal clear. This MacBook comes with a 750GB serial ATA hard drive, which allows you to store thousands of photos, videos, and documents without sacrificing speed. Hidden behind its thin and rounded design is 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM memory and 1333MHz of RAM speed. This amount of memory makes this Mac incredibly fast, fluid, and easy to use. You never should worry about slowing down when you need to multitask. Apple supports a total of 8GB of RAM on this model, so more memory could be added if desired. Connecting to the internet is effortless with the Apple MacBook Pro.

For your convenience, this MacBook comes with all three connecting devices.

Other features include an HD, FaceTime webcam and a standard optical "Superdrive" for saving files or watching your favorite movies. The upgraded battery uses lithium polymer sheets.

WONDERFUL MACHINE, IF....
....one can adjust to small text. Yes, text can be enlarged, but the default (visual) size is about half of what's in the 15.4 inch MacBook Pro model I own. Maybe I'm missing something, but seem to remember a similar set of comments from other users of the machine that should never have been discontinued..... especially if the software were to have been rewritten regarding visual text size. The real irony here is, I bought the 17 inch MacBook Pro due to failing eyesight.

If you have a good PC, it doesn't worth switch, it's pretty much the same.
Excellent Product, just brand new, it was very easy to negociate with my seller. I had a PC before and it's not far from what I had, the difference is more just about how much you will be paying for the Mac, in my opinion it doesn't worth it. If you wanna a computer just for intertainment this screen is too big... My idea was to have it to work with web design, but I think the intel has been having problem with its processor, because it's overheating and when it happen the computer starts to freeze. I have hopes they are gonna fix it before I lose my warranty, and I hope I can change it without cost. Otherwise, I'm gonna keep working with maximun potency till a burn up something inside, cause it really gets hot.

Great video and plenty of power.
This machine is the best mac ive owned. I added a ssd drive and maxed out the ram it flys now. There is no program that this machine has not been able to scream with. The dvd rw makes it my choice.
