A Short Review on Apple’s Macbook Pro 13

Apple’s Macbook Pro 13

The new Macbook Pro 13 looks sleek – and this is what most consumers have expected out of its developer, Apple.  The new model comes with a unibody chassis that do not have any panel breaks, but only on the bottom panel that covers the internal parts of the laptop.

The screen is found to be on the average side as when compared with other newer laptops in the market.  The screen has a glossy surface and increases the vividness of the colors in the screen as compared to the older Macbooks.

The Macbook Pro 13 is equipped with Mac OSX Snow Leopard.  It has an Intel Core 2 Duo Pro processing chip and a 2 GB SDRAM.  The new model has 250 GB of hard disk space as compared to the previous model that only had 160 GB.  The screen is a 13.3” widescreen LED backlit display that goes up to 1280 x 800 in resolution.  The graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 256 MB of shared memory.  It is also equipped with a DVD drive that can also write or burn on DVD and CD recordable discs.  The laptop also has iSight which is a built-in digital video camera that can be used to capture still pictures and for video streaming and recording.  It is also equipped with wi-fi so that it can easily connect to wireless internet connections.  It also comes with Bluetooth connectivity for connecting of other devices such as mobile phones, headsets, mice and other accessories.  A microphone and headset jack is also available.

The advantage of owning a Macbook Pro 13 is that it has a great battery life.  It can reach four up to eight hours without being plugged to a charger.  The screen also displays colors nicely and vividly, with blacks looking darker than other monitor displays.  The chassis of the laptop is also strong and built nicely.  Most of all, the looks of the Macbook is topnotch.  Some of its disadvantages is that it is not very ergonomic as the design is considered first.  Also, some people experience the laptop to get really hot when it is being used.  When compared to other laptops, the Macbook gets hotter easily when used.  This might be the cause of the poor ventilation from the chassis design.  Its hard drive speed is also limited at SATA-150.  Overall, the Macbook Pro 13 is one of the best laptops available in the market.
