MacBook Pro 15"

 

The 15inch MacBook Pro is the best looking, best performing, most desirable laptop out there, but can you justify a  price tag of over £1850?

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Late 2011)

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch gets new hardware and software, including a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon GPU, and OS X Lion, while keeping everything that works well, like the thin and stylish unibody design.

Updated quad-core Core i7 processor. Powerful AMD GPU with more dedicated memory. OS X Lion is superb. Improved battery life

Competitors offer lower prices and larger feature sets

Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011 review: Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011

 

Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011

Incremental updates to the CPU help keep the ; line a step above the now-mainstream MacBook Air. The trackpad and gesture controls are still the best of any current laptop.

Unless you need an optical drive, the MacBook Air may be a better fit for most, and the Pro still lacks things we'd like to see, such as HDMI, Blu-ray, and USB 3.0.

A MacBook Pro is a significant investment, especially when adding in optional upgrades. Cost aside, there's not a better choice (there are, however, some close ties) for an all-around powerhouse that will work in the home, the office, and in between.

Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro (Late 2011) Review

 

The early 2011 MacBook Pro is honestly Apple's best effort to date. Only using quad-core CPUs on the 15 and 17-inch models, and offering an optional Thunderbolt Display that can act as a modern day dock makes this platform, particularly the 15-inch...

The next two years aren't going to be easy on anyone's wallet.

Review Apple MacBook Pro 15 Late 2011 (2.4 GHz, 6770M, glare)

 

More Bang for the Buck. In a Late 2011 Refresh the MacBook Pro 15

Quality of the case; High-quality display; Very good input devices; Very quiet in low load scenarios

Case can get very hot; Down clocked 6770M graphics card; Loud under heavy load; Base configuration: low resolution, glossy display; Few interfaces; Throttling under heavy CPU and GPU load - likely because of an insufficiently dimensioned power adapter

Apple users will only consider laptops from Apple. The entry-level model with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPU and 6750M graphics card might be of particular interest. Furthermore, the smaller 13" model might be a good alternative because of its low price. If you...

Apple MacBook Pro (15-Inch, Fall 2011 Version) Review and Ratings

 

With this fall 2011 update, Apple's middle-child MacBook Pro gets a slightly faster processor and more graphics muscle, keeping its performance well ahead of the competition. It's a minor update from the previous version, making the need to upgrade...

Awesome performance ; Excellent battery life ; Multi-touch gestures on touch pad work flawlessly with OS

Only a minor upgrade from previous version ; Still lacks a Blu-ray drive and an HDMI port ; Battery is not user-replaceable

Apple MacBook Pro MD318B/A (Late 2011)

 

Great design. Loads pages very quickly. Good battery life. Ease of navigation between multiple windows is brilliant.

Takes a bit of time to get used to new commands but once I learnt them, it has become a pleasure to use MAC. I still use my windows pc, though sparingly.
