Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro Review
Approved by: Glenn
Category: MacBook Pro

NotebookReview - "The new 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro brings a lot of new features to the table from the previous generation. Users now get a large battery that gives pretty amazing life, a better display, faster processor, FireWire, SD-card slot, and best of all a lower starting price. Getting more for less seems to be the trend during this slow economy, so is there any reason not to buy the new 13" MacBook Pro? Read our full review to find out..."

Awesome! That's one of the best reviews I've seen around for the 13" MBP.

Even with the concern that the 13" MBP utilizes only the slower 1.5 mbps SATA, this and other reviews have convinced me to finally replace my 1.33 mhz PowerBook Al. The last piece I needed was hearing that the display has been improved to the equivalent of the 15" MBP.

I'm still on the fence, but I enjoyed this review as well. Smile

I hear you Fox. This is actually the first MacBook in a while that has me thinking about upgrading from my old PowerBook. The only thing really holding me back is the glass screen. As mentioned in this review, they really are reflective buggers. I also have a gut feeling that Apple is going to introduce a 15" MacBook Pro again with a matte screen. I mean, in the form of a BTO option or something. Maybe I'm just living in the past though.
