Best Mac and MacBook
Everyone knows the reliability of Macs, their stylish designs and simple to use operating systems. It is an essential tool for any media, graphics, or music developers with Apple software tailored to your needs. One of the best kept secrets is that you don't have to buy your Mac Book directly from Apple as there are many far cheaper resellers! We have reviewed the Macs, found the cheapest prices and here is what we have found.
Best MacBook: MacBook Pro 15" 2.4Ghz / 2GB/ 250GB
How do you review a perfect laptop? What can I say, this 15" MacBook is the perfect blend of style, performance and price providing what I believe is the best MacBook to date. At under £1500 you have enough power to play any of the latest games, tackle graphic design, music or media software.
The 2.4Ghz Intel Core Duo is the latest of Intel processors to hit the market. Yes one could upgrade to the fastest 2.93Ghz processor but who would pay another few hundred pounds to get another 5-10% increase in performance when the 2.4Ghz Core Duo is already one of the fastest CPUs on the market! 2 GBs of ram are the ideal amount of memory for any of the most intensive application you will run. Upgrading to 3 or 4 GBs would not increase performance in most applications as it is too much memory to use at any one time. Perhaps the most exciting piece of hardware in the MacBook Pro is the graphics card. The Nvidia 9600M GT provides stunning visuals, easily capable of playing the latest of games. It is clear from the specifications that the Apple engineers have hit a perfect balance of performance between all of the laptop components. We can find no performance bottlenecks with this setup meaning you wont be paying for hardware that you cant get the best performance out of like with many other laptops on todays market.
I always try to balance my reviews with some negative points about every laptop but I really am struggling to uncover any. Perhaps the only one I can think of is the premium price of Apple products compared to other brands of laptops on the market. However, the style, award winning software and operating system, make the premium price good value your money after all. Once again good old Amazon has not let us down providing us with the best price for this laptop we could find.
