"Amazing... Better for graphic design than Sony"5.0 starson by febedesigns
Pros: Mini Display Port is smaller than a pencil eraser and can adapt with sound
Lightning fast, can run 10 high res Photoshop windows without flinching
Multi touch trackpad even has a "back and forward" feature, and is not overly sensitive, no accidents
Cons: Makes a bit of noise when running install CD. Have not tried an audio cd, but all my music is digital anyway
The front edge is sharp, but if thats what apple needs to do to get it out quicker, Ill deal with it
Summary: I waited since January for this to come out, and after receiving it, I am not disappointed!
Its sleek and fast, and as a print Graphic Designer I need to be able to run multiple high resolution images in various programs. When my powerbook finally crashed in January, I borrowed my cousins Sony laptop, which is apparently meant for gaming. Although it only had a Duo Core chip, it was comparable in most ways, it even had 12 gigs of ram instead of the 8 that my new MBP has. However it was obviously slower and was prone to freezing for up to 30 seconds when trying to multitask.
I was really waiting for an HDMI port on the new MBP, so when it was not released with one, I was disappointed. But as soon as it was announced that the MiniDisplay could transmit sound, I decided to have an open mind.
I bought an adapter for hdmi for $8.50 on amazon, and it works exactly the same as an hdmi port with only one cord instead of the idiotic 2 cord system. I also plugged in into my high def 40 inch monitor with the minidisplay and was very happy with the outcome. The Sony only had hdmi and it was not nearly as sharp.
All in all, if you need to be able to process a lot of applications at once, this is the computer for you. Its a pretty hefty price tag of course, so if you don't feel you need it, just don't get it.
