"Sheer innovation"4.5 starson by SirMacAttackLean
Pros: Thin light weight design
Lightning fast port, literally
HDMI on this round of the Macbook Pro
Good options on ram
Cons: Not a cheap laptop.
Not very user upgradable.
Summary: Most people complain about the price.
Yet most have no idea that Apple spent nearly 1 Billion dollars developing the technology thats crammed into this 15" masterpiece. This is 100% innovation on Apples part.
You see people compare these computers to the likes of HP or Dell, but its just not an even comparison. You can not compare a Kia and a Porsche on the grounds they both have 4 wheels and drive. Its about the build quality, its about the support, its about the EXPERIENCE. Something Apple has proven time and time again you can usually only find with their products. So many companies are trying to copy the entire Macbook line up. Consumers should pay attention to that key factor. If a company like Dell or Hp has to clone the look and feel of a product just so you will buy it....why wouldn't you just buy the real thing.
The retina may soon be the most copied laptop on the market, it is sleek , powerful and versatile. If you can not afford the entry level or top end Macbook Pro retina , shoot for a $1199 Macbook Pro , you wont regret it.
