5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Experience, November 12, 2011
This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro MD318LL/A 15.4-Inch Laptop (OLD VERSION) (Personal Computers)
UPDATE 12/23/12
I love my macbook pro. I needed to update because when i look back at all the different purchases i have made, this one stands at the top for no REGRET and fantastic user experience. I have had it for over 2 years now and with the Crucial memory upgrade i have never looked back. When i switched over I did so because I had just received a replacement DELL for work. at the time it was one of their newer models (E6410). it was junk. and the degradation and user experience was just so frustrating. I continuously would watch my girlfriend run her web business from her older Macbook Pro with such ease - and every once and awhile i would play around with it. all the productivity enhancements etc just fantastic. Not to mention i made my living originally supporting Windows NT etc from a server platform - and grew up with IBM PC jr etc.

I just couldnt take it anymore. so i used my own funds even though i had a sony vaio for personal use, and the new DELL E6410 (which shortly after became only used for web surfing by the kids), to purchase my macbook pro. THE BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER Made personally. IT removed so much frsutration, made me so much more productive, became so much more intuitive and less painful when plugging into different monitors or projection systems, or even to the HDMI on large screen TV - no reboots (though i will tend to reboot every couple weeks to feel like i have a 'clean system'.

Instant on when i open the laptop. Ease of wireless connection.. and while there are some shortcomings with some frequently used tools (MS Outlook - cant view distribution lists etc - suprised it would be a shortcoming in a microsoft product??lol) there is no tradeoff.

My girlfriend had since upgraded her older macbook pro 17" - to the newer 17" and the old one became the only one the kids will use.
