Macbook Pro, in my opinion, seems to be the most dominant laptop when it comes to graphic design. I at first find it hard to use, but when i got used to it, it really does come in handy. What do you guys think about Macbook Pro?





*Short note: Macbook Pro and Normal Macbook are totally different. Try run Maya or pftrack on normal Macbook and you'll see what i mean*

That is a 13 inch Macbook Pro and the design you have is called a "Uni-Body" which came during the mid 2008. The creator's Macbook Pro is called "Aluminum body" which are the first era Macbook Pro. In other word, it's a Macbook Pro from 2006 - 2007.

Macbook Pro are designed from graphic usage but people tend to use it to play games on Mac and on Bootcamp.

I used an imac at school and i do say it was horrible and it's overheats like crazy (use them to warm my hands in a cold climate lol).. So i'm a little wary of buying a mac laptop, but anyways i heard good reviews about it such as speed, and i do like the appearance...

My Macbook Pro's a bitch.
It keeps freezing, the screen gets pixely (it does this most often when I go to top sites), slow reaction to commands, unsuccessful closing of programs, fuses two site pages together or a part of the page freezes while the other part still scrolls up and down or functions. And I've only had it for 5 months ONLY.
Does anyone else's Macbook Pro do this or have other problems like me? Should I send it to Apple for a check up or is this natural? (of course not! lol) I wish they'll give me a new laptop instead of just fixing it... -o-

Here's some image proofs of my Macbook Pro being fcked up.







omg I'm going to go make a complaint to them.

I've never used a Mac product, except an old old old 90's desktop computer. I remember it had a symbol of an apple on it and said Macintosh and it never clicked in my head that it was the same company as these fancy expensive Mac products.

I'm thinking either the video card is having some issues, your laptop overall has been on too long and might be overheating, or there's internal damage elsewhere somewhere. I've never seen a MacbookPro do this.

I work in web development and design. I've worked in both Windows and Mac environments, where people have touted one is much better than the other. Personally, I think that Windows 7 is an upgraded OS that is very comparable to the Mac OS without some of the problems that Mac has (mostly hardware and logic-related, but also Apple has a lot of restrictions on software availability). That's if you're already familiar with Windows and don't care all that much.

MacbookPro laptops in my opinion are very overpriced for what they do. When you add in the software, an overall price for most Mac laptops skyrocket over Windows equivalents, and the Windows laptops have better scalability depending on where you get it from. As far as graphic design goes, Macs are the traditional standard, and the Shift+Apple+4 screen grab ability is extremely convenient (you can replicate this on Windows, but I've been too lazy to find out how).

I've been debating myself over whether or not to get a MacbookPro laptop due to an extremely convenient database program I found, but that's the only reason I'm considering it, and it's still overpriced anyway...

Also, you should note that if you're going to use this for personal use, that's fine, but if you're looking for business use, I'd look around for other reviews. In general, Mac's treatment of business customers is extremely lax and roundabout. They also recently dropped continuation of their Mac Servers, so anyone with problems with them get little to no support anymore, though they'll still try to sell you ones they have left in stock... I get plenty of frequent negative feedback of Apple help from our IT guy, but that's usually tied to being a business customer over a regular consumer.

I think I'd rather build a Hackintosh or the Like on a really nice Laptop setup. That way I get the best of Both worlds (or Three ), Windows, Linux, and OSx. Oh, and for the options of slightly easier upgrading of hardware.

I would definitely get it checked and or replaced. I love my MBP 17". Some say it's big, but I'm a big guy
