PC Mag reviews 17\" MBP
PC Magazine has reviewed the 17-inch MacBook Pro, bestowing a "very good" rating on Apple's professional laptop offering. "Apple's new MacBook Pro is ideal for creative professionals looking for a feature-rich system with plenty of screen real estate." The reviewer notes that Apple's notebook is the lightest 17-inch laptop currently available, and points to very good performance running Windows as well as Mac OS. Other pros include an "excellent software suite," the extra USB port, and the iSight camera. Cons consist of the notebook running "a bit hot," coupled with a high price tag. For creative professionals the move to the MacBook Pro 17-inch is "a no-brainer, even at $3,099."
