I've spent two weeks with this machine now. If I had written this review after one day, I would have probably stated that I regretted the switch to Mac. After getting more proficient with the machine and realizing how well it works, I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
This review is going to be a mix of my impressions of both the hardware and the Mac operating system from a new Mac user perspective.
The only difference between my machine and the one on this product page is that I ordered directly from Apple and upgraded the hard drive to 250GB (from the 160GB base option). I am using 2gb of ram and the lower-end processor.
My Mac OS impressions:
The biggest thing I missed from Windows at first was the task bar. Mac uses the "dock" to replace the task bar. The dock is kind of like the quick launch toolbar in Windows spread out across the entire bar, with large icons. Having used windows with a task bar for the past 13 years, I missed the ability to see all open programs and switch between them with the task bar. The dock has a tiny dot below the icon on running-programs, but nothing else to separate it from other program and folder icons. The dock is not nearly as useful for multitasking as the task bar.
The saving grace that rescues the Mac from awkward app-switching while multitasking is called expose.Read more ›
Are there things this computer lacks? Yes, there is no Blu-Ray player, which would have been nice, but for me was not a deal-breaker. I suspect that the next-gen MBP's will phase out the rotary hard drives and switch to solid state as the standard, and will all have Blu-Ray players. Until that time, this little laptop is more than sufficient.
If I had to come up with a gripe about this computer, there is really only one- and this is true for most of Apple's products- the iPod, iPhone, and MBP's- I wish that they would not coat portable products with textures that are so easy to scratch. It is apparent that after a few months of toting this to class, it is going to have some scuffs on it.Read more ›
I have not used a Windows laptop since that day 2 months ago!! This is by far the best laptop or computer I have ever owned! One of my major concerns before I switched was adjusting to a new OS and learning stuff all over again. Let me tell you this: Apple is a very smart company and has made their OS so much simpler for a Windows person to use when compared to at least 6 years ago. No wonder so many people like me have switched sides and are continuing to switch everyday. I had planned to use this laptop for 2 weeks at least before I returned it because of frustration. I thought that it was a fair amount of time to get used to a new OS. In reality, it took me about 10 minutes to get used to it!! It was that easy and intuitive. I have waited until today to write this review as I was trying to find a list of things that did not work on this laptop or things that frustrated me.Read more ›
