The flagship ultrabook
Overall User Rating (4 Out of 5 based on 12 ratings)
Overall: I have used a Macbook Pro 15 inch i7 top of the line model (2010 make) for two years, and it has always been super dependable. Example : I will have 23 tabs in chrome open, and ten tabs in firefox, as well as processing large excel files. (~30 mb Plus), listening to music on youtube, and also can easily squeeze in something like, video editing on imovie, or Photo processing in iPhoto, and this laptop DOES NOT EVEN BLINK, or let you know that it is stressed. It WORKS! JUST WORKS!!!
After this, i'd just drop it in to my bag, shutting the screen, and open it up for work next morning, and it will boot up in a flash! (The SSD model is amazing - I recommend getting it over a HDD)
You can do this for a period of twenty or so days, in a row! Until you notice the boot times slowly increasing. The laptop will still give you the same performance! What a beast!
The battery life is insanely good. It gives me 4-5 hours on such a load as above.
The con? It HEATS UP! It is one hot mama! It may burn your lap if you put it on it, that hot. Although this is corrected in later models (post 2010 models) - Altogether, if you can afford it, a great investment for a long time. Just don't treat it like shit, and it will give you a long long service.
