        I have only had the Mac Book Pro 1 week. I am migrating from windows PC to Mac. The laptop is more than adequate for the operations I have attempted so far. It seems to be excellent at multi-tasking.

            I just bought this after using the Macbook Air for a few months. I needed more speed and power and this Macbook Pro performs exceptionally well during labor intensive softwares such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Aperture....all at the same time!

                    Comments about Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer:

                    I finally had to replace my PowerBook G4 from 2005, and am thrilled with the new MacBook Pro. It's fast, migrating data from my old laptop to this one was a breeze. Only drawback is that I need to figure out all of the new features, shortcuts, etc that this beautiful machine has to offer. But it's so exciting to have a computer that actually has a battery life!
                    Couldn't be more pleased with my purchase (and B&H's price!)

                      I use this laptop as my backup, I have a IMac 27inch quadcore with I7 processors with 8gigs of memory and 1tb hard drive it's a beast. I bought this one so I can do my editing while I'm at work so I don't have to do much when I get in from work. It cut my editing down a whole lot. I work crazy hours and about time I get in from work and start on my editing it can get real late. I max this macbook pro out i7 processors. I added on more memory 8gigs and added a faster hard drive 7,200 rpm. The same hardware that is on my iMac is in my macbook pro I'm so satisfied, what I can't get done while I'm home I can get done while I'm at work or on the road.

                      The bottom line is I love it and have nothing bad to say about it. Oh I was a Pc man but now you can see that I'm a MAC man.

                      500 gigabyte Hdd 7,200 rpm
                      8gigs memory
                      i7 processor
                      15inch did I miss something, It's bananas

                          No doubt this is the best notebook for those who work directly with audio editing, video and photography. Since I am a music producer and artistic director of the union must perfect these areas.

                          Speed and stability are mainly the high points of the Macbook Pro Core i7 processor and certainly gives the impression that the computer "thought of it before me. "

                          The downside is the internet connection has a problem "inexplicable. " Some macbooks have this problem with certain routers. The connection becomes unstable and drops the item wireless Internet several times a day.
                          Sometimes a small site takes too long to load.
                          You need a workaround for the DNS to work.
                          Palliative done, the machine is perfect.

                          Use laptop in place of a desktop system. Clear, vibrant screen. Fast,reliable. Fits all my needs and then some. The only Laptop I'd recommend.

                            I am a computer professional and use my macbook for anything and everything. I had a 13" and upgraded to 15". Its so far the best thing that I use on my daily basis.

                            New touchpad in this laptop is great. Keyboard is very comfortable. Excellent hardware, industrial design. If you are using a Mac for earning, like i do, you will simply love this MacBookPro. Lack a USB port on the right side is a negative point. The couple places sharp edges should have been smoothened for user's comfort for long time operation. Overall, this laptop is the best right now. The price is just right.

                                I just switched to Mac and have no regrets. Sure, there is a learning curve, but overall, my Mac experience has been nothing but positive so far.
