Apple MacBook Pro 15in 2010 review


Apple's latest 15in MacBook Pro doesn't look much different to last year's – so, what's been going on under the hood?

Lack of Blu-ray aside, this is a truly great media laptop with an amazing battery life

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Late 2011) review


Apple didn’t even press release the changes in this gentle speed bump for autumn 2011’s MacBook Pro. But small increases in performance are there to be had, over what was already a spectacularly fast laptop. We’re still holding out for a complete...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (2011) review


Stunning performance, amazing new technology and the same great design, but the astronomical price makes the new MacBook Pro for professionals only.

Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Early 2011) review


The Apple MacBook Pro 15in (Early 2011) makes many breakthroughs, none visible from the outside - yet one of those revisions alone may transform personal computing…

Externally, this 2011 revision to the 2008-design Apple MacBook Pro isn’t even evolutionary, since there’s no visible change - save a lightning legend logo by the Mini DisplayPort connector. But since that port is actually a Thunderport link, this may...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in


After inhabiting the same skin for several years, the 15 inch MacBook Pro has been revitalised with the same unibody construction and minimalist aesthetics as its smaller sibling. It was always beautifully built, but the new model surpasses...

Aluminium fail. A gorgeous Mac, but expensive and flawed, and a bit of a let-down for Windows users.

Apple Macbook Pro (15in, early 2011) review


The new Core i7 Apple Macbook Pro is a very strong performer for productivity and general purpose computing tasks, but it's no surprise that you can buy a cheaper Windows-based notebook that's more powerful.

The one thing that holds the Macbook Pro back from being an easy recommendation is its price. It's notably more expensive than a comparable Windows laptop like Dell's latest XPS 15 (L501x) or Latitude E5520, or even a specced-up version of the Sony...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in


Now equipped with a Core i5 CPU, this mid-range Mac makes a lasting impression.

The redesigned trackpad in front of the keyboard is huge. It is so big, in fact, that it now supports one-, two-, three- and four-finger touch gestures, and they all work beautifully. For example, sweeping four fingers across the surface switches...

Apple MacBook Pro 15in 2.8GHz


The 2.8GHz MacBook Pro sits at the top of Apple's new range of 15in Pro laptops. The only MacBook Pro above it in the line-up is the 2.8GHz 17in model, which is almost identically specified, save for the larger screen and an ExpressCard slot

The 2.8GHz MacBook Pro is a solid upgrade to the previous top-of-the-range model. Although we haven't tested the other two 15in models in the range, the fact that this one has 6MB Level 2 cache, rather than the 3MB in those models, means it's likely to...

Apple MacBook Pro (15in with Retina display) review


Apple's 15in MacBook Pro with Retina display is perhaps the finest notebook on the Australian market

Excellent screen ; Sturdy build quality ; Great keyboard ; Runs quietly

Some noticeable warmth ; Screen reflections can be annoying

There's no doubt that Apple's 2012 MacBook Pro is a great piece of kit. Its Retina display and Ivy Bridge CPU are the main attractions, but its keyboard and overall build quality are still among the best in the business and make this laptop a worthy...

Apple MacBook Pro (15in, Core i7)


The new MacBook range employs Intel's new Core i5 and Core i7 processors

Excellent aluminium unibody design, great build quality, Core i7 processor option, increased performance and battery life over previous models, excellent keyboard, large trackpad

Trackpad has areas with poor response, glossy display, 5400rpm hard drive, restricted graphics card switching, USB ports poorly positioned, can become uncomfortably hot on occasion

The design remains the same, but Apple's latest MacBook Pro has received a welcomed upgrade under the hood. The glossy display, slow hard drive and poorly positioned USB ports remain issues, but better performance and battery life than previous models...
