need advice on mbp
not interested in retina
looking at a late-2011 MD322LL/A
2.5ghz i7, 15.4 matte high resolution screen
8gb 1333mhz ram
750gb hdd for basically $1500

brand new 13.3" mbp MD102LL/A the high end version

I would eventually play video games on it but screen size ain't a major deal for me.
mainly looking at specs quad core + gpu

I have owned several Macs and PCs and loved both. I enjoy PC slightly more though.

I've really had one laptop (dell) and it's been alright for the 3 years i've had it but needs a new battery which i don't feel like replacing and has other problems but it's my first.. I've been thinking about trying out a macbook pro. Mostly i just browse the internet a lot, watch vids/movies, listen to/download music and movies. Mostly watch movies from my laptop via hdmi and if i'm not mistaken, macbooks don't have an hdmi port? I also like customization and sort of like the aesthetic of apple. Been lookin on craigslist for macbook pros recently. Just wanted to get an opinion on what i should do or what i should purchase. as far as gb, RAM, and all that techinical shit goes.. Appreciate any info

the Retina Pro models do have an HMDI port but I think the regular Pro models still do not

Jan 08, 2013 @ 20:28
after reading some posts i'll be purchasing one now

I have a 09 Macbook and my harddrive failed but had it replaced under apple care, but besides that nothing has went wrong, and its an older model so I can still replace things if needed. Its all comes down to personal preference of OS though. Both are capable of the same things.

Bought a Macbook Pro back in 2008 and it just recently died. Was my fault though since I would use it while on my bed, so the battery overheated from the computer sinking into the bed and not being able to vent properly. I've learned my lesson since. Other than that mishap, it's been the best computer I've had to date. No viruses or any of that crap and very simple user interface. I remember when I had PC's, they'd have problems every couple of months or so. 

I'd say it's worth it, depending on what you're using it for. I mainly edit on programs and type papers, so it's fine for me.

Love my apple laptop! 
Jan 27, 2013 @ 01:46
macs are the shit!! Straight and simple.
Jan 28, 2013 @ 04:35
i def enjoy mine for casual use. you should upgrade the ram, it really improves processing speed
Feb 01, 2013 @ 09:07
def worth it, got a pc for college...should have gotten a mac

Had my 2007 macbook for about 6 years now. Shits still doesnt lag. but apple is coming to a down fall, so i suggest you get one of those ultrabooks now, because apple is becoming a asshole. sueing left and right, monopolizing connectors(lighting, thunderbolt), and uninnovative technology. Apple had its reign and its just about over.
they have had their own proprietary parts for a long time

The people behind the company may seem like douchebags, but the products are still very great in terms of quality and style. I love my MacBook Pro. It's going to be my fourth year using this laptop, and I don't have problems with it. I might need to replace the battery, though, but I'm considering getting a new MacBook Pro for college. The new and thinner one with the Retina display seems great.

Macbooks suck ass and you are just wasting cash. For the price of an expensive, under powered macbook (dual core for $1600, 15") you can get yourself a nice, fast gaming laptop that will trump its performance. As long as the laptop has an MXM slot, you can also upgrade the GPU and CPU.

Check for their selection of laptops. A 15" dual core CPU macbook is $1600, while the Sager NP9170 is $1319, and you get a 17" screen with a speedy quad core cpu, and a really good gaming GPU.

I love my MBP, but shit is crapping out on me after just 3 years.

It keeps shutting off when the battery hits around 60-70%, especially if I'm doing graphics work/watching HD videos.
Feb 21, 2013 @ 03:34
got both new iMac and old macbook pro both my apple computers i have been thinking of getting the RMBP but after seeing that i cannot change the guts so to say i think i will stay with the 11 mbp until it shuts down on far as macbooks sucking ass ...its all about what you want the computer for...its not a gaming computer per say but it is great for other things as you may know
Mar 09, 2013 @ 13:01
Do you need/want the apple applications and experience? Do you need a laptop? If you answered yes to both then I'd say yes it is. Some time this year there will be new ones, and I'm guessing the cheaper of those will get the 'Retina' triple-HD displays.

Worth it. Great for graphic designers, pretty much any design field, maybe not gaming but that isn't what Apple is about anyway....
Mar 11, 2013 @ 18:06
I don't get why Apple should be better for designing, I bet my PC is multiple times better, not trying to hate, just sayin just my opinion.
Mar 11, 2013 @ 18:25
it's not all about specs and shit, it's how the os and the hardware perform as 1, windows xp was probably the most stable and best windows os, and may work amazingly with some pc's compared to other versions. whereas mac os works perfectly with MacBooks, which all in all will make them perform better. I have both and i definitely prefer my macbook, so much better made, smoother and hasn't let me down since 2010 once!
