8 Comments to Apple MacBook Pro-13 inch

  1. Love the new trackpad, it’s alot bigger than it used to be and easier to navigate with. And the battery keeps going and going, much better than my old PC that would only last a couple of hours!

  2. Such a fast computer! The updated processor makes all the difference, I can run up to 5 design programs without a problem. And the graphics are fantastic, makes watching movies on my 17-inch a pure pleasure

  3. I’ve had my 17 inch Macbook Pro for about 3 months now. While I’ve had some minor issues with it, overall it’s been great. I love how the keyword lights up so I can see at night. I’d recommend it to anyone who does design work.
