Reasons to Get a Macbook Pro Computer

Introduction:As an IBM compatible PC user coming late to the MacIntosh world, my new MacBook Pro has really shaken up my life. A totally amazing machine, the MacBook Pro computer will provide hours and hours of amusement (and, well, confusion) as you explore its applications.

  • 01

    The Macbook Pro Is Very Portable

    The smallest MacBook Pro is 13" and comes in right under 5 lbs in weight making the MacBook Pro a truly comfortable laptop. And, it's thin (just over 1" in thickness). The 13" MacBook Pro can actually fit into a largish purse. The MacBook Pro comes in a 15" and 17" model also.

    Macbook Speed on the Internet Beats a PC

    One of the problems with an IBM compatible computer is that they slow up as you use them. Having to rebook your computer because it locks up is incredibly frustrating. Enter the world of the MacIntosh. The MacBook does not slow up, no matter how many computer applications or web pages might be running.

  • 03

    The Macbook Battery Life Can't Be Beat

    You'll get right around 10 hours of use from a single battery charge on the MacBook Pro computer. Compare that to an IBM laptop - well, you could compare it but it would be a sad competition. If you get 5 hours out of a PC, that's a pretty good run.

  • 04

    The Macbook Pro Has a Smooth Glass Built In Mouse Pad

    The MacBook Pro's mouse pad is fully customizable so you can mimic the clicks of a pc mouse if you choose but you can do so much more. Set up the MacBook mouse to rotate pictures just with your fingers, or zoom in or out by making your spread between your fingers larger or smaller. Just too cool for words...

    A Macbook Comes Loaded With Really Cool Applications

    You'll be up and running and productive in no time (once you orient to the world of Macs) with your new MacBook. Macs have it all over IBM compatible computers when it comes to streaming videos or working with graphics or photo files. And, all applications are easily customized to the way you work.




Final Thoughts

Funny, as I was writing this list, I minimized the browser and, well, - let's just say there is a learning curve if working on a MacBook when you're used to a pc....

    Man, I think I'm sold on Mac and I'm a (previously) firm believer in Dell. I was on the phone for 4 hours with technical support in India to try and clear spyware off my Dell - ridiculous!. I'm sure hoping i don't crash this Mac, Pup! And, once I figure out what I'm doing, I'm sure I'll be dangerous...

    Good to read all the reasons to buy and use a Macbook Pro Computer.

    I've crashed every Mac I've ever touched. For some reason, people hide their's from me whenever I come around. **shrugs** While many people swear by their Macs, I have a fully loaded Dell Inspiron with a 17.3" monitor that gets 8 1/2 hrs of battery life. My last Dell lasted 10 years.
