Apple Unveils New Macbook Pro – Our Review
The Apple MacBook has always been a byword for secure, robust and high tech laptop computing, and the latest MacBook Pro is no exception, and has a brand new "Unibody", which is a stunning case crafted from high strength, lightweight aluminium, offering additional durability and a seamless outer case design, devoid of all those miscellaneous switches and buttons found in rival Pro laptops. The Unibody is slim line, polished and ultra chic, providing users with a beautiful looking, lightweight machine, which is also incredibly robust.
The latest MacBook Pro features standard high-speed 1066MHz DDR3 memory, with additional support for up to 8GB of RAM.
Keyboard and Multi Touch Trackpad
Apple have kept the automatic ambient backlit Qwerty keyboard, which is very useful for when you are working in low light conditions, and the keys are precisely fitted into the surface and slightly curved so that your fingers slide perfectly into place, making the whole laptop feel responsive and extremely comfortable for typing long documents.
Trackpads can often let laptops down, but the MacBook Pro multi touch trackpad combines both the click and scroll functions, and reacts quickly and accurately to your touch. It can be used on multiple applications and is also a generous size so that you have plenty of room to move around, and is slickly crafted from glass with a satin aluminium finish, which fits seamlessly into the rest of the Unibody.
The quality of the LED backlit screen on the new MacBook Pro is outstanding, with brilliant resolution and razor sharp graphics, and comes with a 60% greater colour range than previous generation MacBooks for a really intense viewing experience.
The latest MacBook Pro comes with a new and improved lithium-polymer battery, which is one of the most advanced designs on the market and is incredibly compact and lightweight, and last for up to 7 hours on one charge. The life of the battery has also been increased, lasting for up to 1000 recharges (around 5 years), which is nearly five times longer than standard lithium-polymer batteries. This means that the batteries for the latest MacBook Pro are much more environmentally friendly, and Apple also offers a battery take-back program so that you can ensure your old batteries are disposed off in an environmentally responsible way.
