"A Great Computer, at a Great Price..."4.5 starson by rkcrawfo
Pros: Basically as powerful as the Macbook Pro now, very compact, multi-touch trackpad greatly improves speed of typical tasks, a beautiful design that you will be grateful to own every time you see it.
Cons: Less connectivity than previous models. Expensive when compared to windows laptops, but you really do get what you pay for here.
Summary: As a developer, I am running OSX, Windows, and Linux simultaneously all day long- usually with about Thirty browser windows open in Firefox and Safari. I am also typically working in Adobe Flash and Dreamweaver, without any processor lag time. Plus I never have to stop working on a project - because the computer NEVER needs to be shut off- thankfully OSX has a sleep function that does what it is supposed to do. The only people who need a firewire port are digital video editors. And that is exactly who the macbook pro is intended for. This is an incredibly powerful and reliable computer for the price- believe me, I can still perform all these tasks on my Six year old iBook G4 as well. I can not imagine any reason whatsoever, besides cost, that anyone would choose a Windows laptop.
