"Cadillac of laptops!"4.5 starson by geenosr
Pros: It's user friendly and shuts down in less than 5 seconds! WOW!
Cons: runs hot---but not too bad
Summary: I am moving into the mac/apple world after being a PC only guy for 13 years. I am not a "fanboy", but so far apple has won me over with the best laptop I've had. I had PC laptops for the last 7 years, and still use one that is provided with my job, and it's not even close. The MacBook Pro is faster, more intuitive, easier and more fun to use than I thought possible with portable computing. Every time I use my PC laptop (daily), I find something I like less with the PC, and something more I like with the MBP. I recently went to a global technology convention, and was amazed to find that around 90% of IT specialists were using apple laptops. When I asked them why they choose apple, they simply said it was a superior product, and if they had to...they could use Windows OS. But it was clear to professionals that apple was the preferred product, and that was good enough for me. After using the MBP, I have to agree with them. If you buy it, I don't think you will regret your purchase.
