Written on: 03/04/2011 by wilsonjo (5 reviews written)

I required a decent laptop for my work and after looking around and doing quite a lot of research, I decided that, contrary to popular opinion, the price of the Apple offering wasn't so different from a similar specification of PC style laptop and as I already owned an Apple iMac, I bought one of the original unibody 15" MacBook Pro's.

I wish I'd bought the full compliment of RAM at the beginning as I run Windows XP as a virtual machine (because of one particular VPN application which only… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2011 by jhilton (2 reviews written)

I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone that I come across in the street or anywhere. Unlike any other laptop that I have owned it is by far the best. Battery life is absolutely amazing unlike on the iPhone. The features on the Mac book are just truly amazing and unique. The user interface is what attracts so many people and to be honest it's what did it for me to and I am really glad I bought one, I haven't been off it since I bought it it is that good… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/02/2011 by dannygoodman (3 reviews written)

I bought my apple macbook pro to take on tour. As a dj i can run a lot more software on it, ableton live, logic pro 9 etc. without it stalling or crashing like my old macbook 13". I also like the bigger screen, it allows me to see more and have more windows up to play with whilst doing live mixes.

All in all, I think its a little overpriced (like most apple products) but it's a good bit of kit and really reliable.

The battery life is also really good as normal laptops tend to run out of juice… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/02/2011 by partypest (8 reviews written)

I've been a professional computer user for years, and as with many people, my place of work used Windows NT based PC's. I was pretty good with them, and each time I had a problem, the IT dept sorted it out.

Then, I started work at a firm that used Mac's. Not being familiar with them, my first question was "What's the number for the IT dept?". The answer came "We don't have one." I was dreading having a problem and losing time. However, after a few days, I was up to speed on the subtle… Read Full Review

Advantages Of Touch Screen Phones

These Touch phones have got unique and latest electronic visual display that enables the screen of the phone to detect or sense any movement on it, and then it will work according to the movement. Now you can use your fingers or hands for performing the touch action.

These types of Smartphones are also playing vital and prominent role in the manufacturing of video games and other devices such as PDAs. With the help of their extra ordinary function one can… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/02/2011

I bought and 15" macbook pro with an intel i7 processor. My desktop pc was in desperate need of reinstalling the operating system. It was running very slow and I had trouble using pro audio software on it. However I didnt have space anywhere to back up the data. This and the fact that I needed something more portable prompted me to by and high spec macbook. However since buying 8 months agao its been wrought with problems. The screen keeps going blank and prompting me to reboot perhaps once… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/02/2011 by ALF1001 (1 review written)

I simply love my macbook pro. I wouldnt now ever have any other kind of computer - i have been truely converted! Its a lot more than simply good looks. Easy to use, and highly intuitive - I now find myself getting very frustrated using a PC!!. With the ability to use microsoft office products - so that excel and word docs are easily transferable - the only real down side is the cost. Its a shame it is so much more expensive than an equivalent PC. Other than that - no complaints! I highly… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/01/2011 by hotttie (6 reviews written)

I love my Macbook Pro although it just seems to be running quite slow for the past 12mnths. I have reformatted my computer and its still slow. I don't have any viruses on my computer so i don't think this is a contributing factor. This probably my biggest complaint with this laptop. I think the battery life could also be a little better too. Apple seems to love to increase battery life with each new model. The problem with this is that we either have to hold out for the new versions to… Read Full Review

I bought my mpb around 1 year ago and thought i would share my experience with reviewcenter.

For the 1st 6 months it was all fine, it was fast worked prefectly. Basically no issues at all. But around april I started having issues. The casing started giving me electric shocks and one day it made a massive pop and scared the hell out of me.

A few days later I took it into Apple, they were very helpful and replaced some sort of board. I was pleased with their service.

Now the screen is… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2011 by energylightbulbs (3 reviews written)

I had a macbook pro for work and totally hated it, the battery was no where near what everyone was going on about and the navigation of operating system was far from second nature.
I've used apple before but think this is overpriced and simply a slim laptop with a high price tag to increase sales for apple over the success of the iphone.
Avoid unless you like new gadgets with all show and no go!… Read Full Review

“Bought a 17" Macbook Pro about 4 months ago from eBay....”

Written on: 25/01/2011

Bought a 17" Macbook Pro about 4 months ago from eBay. A bit more expensive than a PC of similar spec, but what you get is also much more. Far less flaky than the alternative.
Both my children and my parents (when babysitting) are regular users, neither had much computer experience, much less on a Mac. Gave them a separate login and they were away with next to nothing in the way of showing them the ropes.
For family use, its easy of use is perfect. I'd be be worrying constantly about… Read Full Review

I changed to a mac from PC just over 6 months ago, while i was hesitant at first, i have since never looked back and it was one of the best decisions i have made!
The macbook pro 15" with intel i7 processor is the most powerful option available and worth every penny. i have the uprated hdd and screen which is great value for money and while the laptop is incredibly expensive (in excess of £1800) it is perfect for all my needs including very strenuous tasks such as video editing etc. the power… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/01/2011 by ArtsApart (2 reviews written)

I think that the Mac's are absolutely excellent and the customer service I have received from them, after sales, has been second to none. When I first bought my I Mac, I had problems with it after only one year. I was so dismayed that I had spent extra than I normally would to get it and was left with a product that appeared to be not worth its extra money. However I contacted Apple and explained to them that I had changed from a pc to a mac on the recommendation of shop staff telling me… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/01/2011 by kkff (7 reviews written)

I own both a Windows and Mac laptop, and Mac is easily the better brand.
Not only are they nice to look at both outside and in, but they are easy to use, don't crash or get viruses [in my experience] and have extremely long battery life compared to their competitors.
I have the aluminum MacBook Pro, and the amount of times that I have spilt a drink on the thing without it being affected is amazing.
They are easy to clean, robust, and everything is tucked away - you don't have a disc tray that… Read Full Review

I found this review somewhat helpful because... its not true, Windows based computers come with hardly any software anymore, Apple computers come with ilife built in so is technically the other way round from your review, apart from that very accurate :)

Written on: 29/12/2010 by ecclescake (3 reviews written)

I love my Macbook. Let me start by saying that. I wasn't sure I would, after loads of my friends kept telling me how much I would (I didn't watch Titanic due to the hype either but feel that decision was justified!).

My Macbook came travelling with me recently, and it was great to be able to access emails through the wifi connection. Everything is easy to use, and just kinda makes sense. It loads up and shuts down quickly, and seems to be immune to viruses (touch wood).I haven't had any… Read Full Review

I received my MacBook almost a year.

I have never looked back.

Coming from a complete windows using family and having never owned a Mac, I found the transition seamless and within a week I had completely given up on Windows all together. The simplicity to use the Operating System is well Simple.

I paid only £5 for my MacBook which was delivered to me free from Amazon.co.uk… Read Full Review
