If you are a fan of Apple, the high-end Apple MacBook Pro is sure to please. Though this Mac laptop looks virtually the same externally as the 15 inch PowerBook, you should not judge the book by its cover. Looks can be deceiving.
The Apple MacBook Pro, priced at $2,000 and up, is a high-end laptop that is packed with features. Some of these features include WiFi, Bluetooth wireless, DVD burning, a keyboard that lights up in the dark, stereo speakers and batteries with illuminated fuel gauges.
The speed of the Mac laptop has not increased much in recent years, therefore, Apple made the decision to replace its current processor chips with chips from Intel. This meant that the entire operating system and all software programs had to be rewritten. Yet Apple deemed the decision worthwhile.
The Apple MacBook Pro is one inch thick, only slightly slimmer than the PowerBook. However, the sleek finish and top notch quality of this mac laptop sets it apart from its predecessors.
The battery life of the Apple Mac book Pro remains pretty much the same at 3 to 3.5 and half hours, but there have been many more improvements. One of these improvements includes improved WiFi reception, courtesy of the wireless antenna having been moved. The circuitry and graphics card have been upgraded and operate at greatly improved speeds.
This Mac laptop also includes a screen that is much brighter. As a matter of fact, at only half brightness, it matches or exceeds the brightest setting of other laptop computers. The 1440-by-900-pixel screen can illuminate a completely darkened room at full brightness.
It also includes a small video camera above the screen that is great for capturing impromptu video. The laptop also includes software programs for creating blogs, websites, videos, and podcasts. Some potential uses of the video camera include video blogs and videoconferencing.
Another upgrade on this Mac laptop includes a remote control that you can use to operate the computer from across the room. It also includes a new power cord that detaches and drops if someone happens to trip over it.
There are too many changes and upgrades to possibly list here, but one of the most notable changes is the increase in speed. The computer starts up quickly and operates just as quickly. This new Mac laptop will definitely make you aware of just how much you have been missing.
