5.0 out of 5 stars Great computer for both consumers and professionals., September 8, 2012
I bought my MacBook Pro 13" two weeks and I'm amazed by how good this machine is. I was having a though time deciding between the 13" MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro 13" (Both baseline models, priced at 1,200 $ retail) I went for the MacBook pro because I needed lots of storage and 128gb on the MacBook Air are just not enough for me and even if I had bought the MacBook Air it would had defeated the purpose of the Air since it wouldn't be so "portable" if I had to take an external Hard drive everywhere with me.

So... Pros and Cons:

Pros:

Speed: This MacBook pro is fast, really fast, it boots up in around 30 seconds, apps open quickly and the MacBook doesn't lag when it comes to video editing, and Photoshop also runs decently.

Design: The computer has a great design, its not that thick, it has all the necessary ports, even a battery indicator which I think is awesome, it also has USB 3 which is really nice and fast

Keyboard: The keyboard is amazing, the keys are sensitive and it feels amazing to type on them, the keyboard is backlit, which is perfect for typing in low lights situations.

Trackpad: The glass trackpad is really nice, its big, the entire trackpad is a button and the gestures are really nice. Simply the best trackpad I've used.

Battery: Battery life is pretty good, I get around 5-6 hours doing normal tasks.

OS X: This is my first mac and I'm impressed by OS X Mountain Lion, it comes with no 3th party software, it comes with all the apps you need + the Mac App Store is great for finding new apps. The OS is fast and fluid, everything is organized and it's just beautiful. I'm coming from Windows 7 and the switch was quite easy for me.

Cons:

Screen: I think 1280-by-800 is quite low for a computer this expensive and that its claimed to be a professional notebook, even the 13" MacBook air has a better display. Don't get me wrong, the display is not that bad looking, in fact its quite good, but for something this expensive it will be nice if it came with a better screen.

Overall this is a great computer, its fast, has a great design, big storage (Even though it's a bit slow, but I'm planning on upgrading to a SSD soon) and awesome battery life. I will recommend this MacBook to anyone looking for a good portable notebook.

One more thing, Windows users don't let OS X stop you from switching, the first days it's a bit hard to get used to it but after you will love Mountain Lion, and if you need any specific windows application that wont run in OS X there's plenty of ways of getting Windows 7 in a Macintosh

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!!!, February 8, 2011

I bought this game only so I could have the complete CoD saga so I haven't played at lot especially since black ops is newer.

The campaign is fun and not so short like black ops its about World War II so I love that , the multiplayer is awful especially for the graphics but I really don't care since I play black ops, zombies are great.

If your deciding which CoD to get between black ops or this get black ops but if you're thinking to buy this game so you can have the complete saga or to have a good campaign or zombies then buy it

Story Mode:

The story is ok, it's not a short story mode and it has a thing a good Naruto game must have IT FOLLOWS ALMOST PERFECTLY THE MANGA OR ANIME.

However there are some negative things about the story mode, if you liked you could explore the leaf village like Naruto, get to the top of buildings and stuff from Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm well that's all gone, you can still go around the leaf village but the camera angle is annoying, also boss battles are annoying when you have to press o or x 20 times in 10 seconds is quite hard.

Character Vs Mode:

Is very fun because there are more than 40 characters (while Ultimate Ninja Storm 1 had less than 20) and the game dynamic is fun.

Online:

Online mode is fun, not so fun like playing call of duty but it's still very fun.

Overall:

Any fan of the anime or manga (or both like me) should have this game

* I give it 4 stars in fun for the story mode and 5 stars overall because the online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for all family members but fun, January 16, 2011

Must people rate this game for all family and ages? I don't quite agree....My son is 13 and thinks this game is fun but not for kids his age I played myself and don't think is a game for the whole family...only for its little members (kids 7 to 10).

Also for little kids in solo play (one player) survival mode is very hard for kids even for adults it's hard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Starter Bundle., January 16, 2011

The Move Controller and the camera:

It's great it catches all your movements and calibration its easy and even fun to do, my controller stopped working for a couple of days but fixed itself.

Sports Champions:

Pros:

-Gladiator, ping pong and Beach Volleyball are very addicting and fun.

-Trophies are easy and fun to get.

-The game includes some sports avatars

Cons:

-Some sports aren't so fun

-There are only 6 and it doesn't have cool sports like basketball, baseball, tennis or bowling (like Wii sports does)

Overall:

The Playstation Move is something that people with ps3 must buy sooner or later and its very fun I give it 4 stars for the game not for the controller or the camera and 5 stars overall because the controller and the camera is what really matters.

*Also I recommend you to buy and extra controller and some move games like: Start the Party or Eye Pet

*The Starter Bundle also brings you a demo disk.
