MB Pro Late 2008 Review

The MacBook Pro has always been the bigger, faster, more advanced (and more expensive) version of the MacBook. While most people will likely find the $1,299 MacBook suitable for everyday work, some people might need or prefer the pricier MacBook Pro. While there has often been a persuasive case to use either, the switch to aluminum casing and an entirely new mobile graphics platform may leave you wondering which one you should choose. Click through for our full MacBook Pro review for a clearer perspective.

    don't even bother reading

    That is one of the worst reviews I've ever read. The benchmarks are between the new MBP and old MB and a mac mini. Why not compare to a new MB or to an old MBP.

    even skimming this article, i think i lost some brain cells. Why show pictures of control panels? Why not test photoshop?

    I like how the reviewer says the glossy screen is more color accurate, but does not back the claim up. I wonder if he has even seen a spectrophotometer or knows what one is. I ask because they are unable to calibrate the glossy screens, so where he comes up with that claim I don't know.

    I just bought a 17" matte screen MBP instead of the 15" glossy because the glossy screens are so revolting to me.
