Apple Mac Book Pro Winter 2011: Not Just a Powerful Upgrade.

Pros: it’s equipped with a drool-worthy 1,920 x 1,200 17-inch screen with a fast AMD Radeon HD 6490M for the serious gamers and demanding videographers out there. Because it runs on Intel Core i7 quad core processors, video editing and graphics software programs could run with ease.

Cons: the major element which dampens this seemingly perfect computer is that its too expensive to get upgrades. A dedicated HDMI and Blu-ray is still missing, and the Thunderbolt technology being used has no compatible products yet.

Verdict:. Powered by the latest and incredibly fast i7 quad core chips, they are so speedy it can effortlessly power even the most demanding software programs available. This makes it a smart investment for its hefty price tag.

Since its first release in the year 2006, the Mac Book Pro has really gone a long way. Specifically made for professionals who are constantly in the move, this high performance notebook computer has been continually refined over the years to best suit its users.

Although it gets a little too expensive to have an upgrade, getting the high-end quad core chips is all worth it. At a huge 750 Giga Byte hard drive and 4Giga Byte of RAM, it can make most people happier for shelling out some bucks. The Core i7 chip is what makes the new Mac Book pro a powerful device. It basically made it the fastest lap-top available thanks to Apple’s smart move of pairing i7 to an AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU. It really surpassed even those established, high-end competition in the market with a Core i7 Alienware M15x.

The Mac Book Pro still has the best touch pad available with its multi-touch gesture control. Perhaps the mother of all iPad/iPhone line of touch screen technology, the trackpad of the new MacBook Pro had become a staple for the Mac Book series through the years.

It also houses the newest high speed data transfer and display technology from Intel called the Thunderbolt in which the port is marked by a lightning bolt icon. Even if it doesn’t have a solid backbone yet as to what programs can be used in this new technology, Thunderbolt seems to be a promising high- speed I/O tool. Apple had made a prototype product called RAID to demonstrate what Thunderbolt could do and it sure made an impressive performance in streaming HD videos. Aside from this new addition, the SD card slot can now work with other high- capacity SD cards because it is now SDXC compatible, all other ports and connections remain the same inside its unibody aluminum construction.

Video-conferencing has been made brilliantly clear and stutter- free via the Mac Book Pro’s 720p built-in web cam which is compatible with the new version of Face Time which can also be found on the newest generation iPhone 4 and iPod touch. Full- screen video- conferencing is made at its best especially with a good Wi- Fi signal.

The MacBook Pro Winter 2011 benchmarks how a notebook computer should be. It’s fast, it’s an eye- candy, really drool- worthy.
