My MacBook Pro is the best computer I've ever owned. It's got a 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2 GB of memory.
As someone in the arts, it is so geared towards everything I need. Plus as an iPhone user it's all perfectly integrated.
GarageBand is an amazing music program that allows you to create music using various instrument sounds, and then you can record your voice over your musical creation. Incredible program.
iPhone and iMovie are the two photo and movie editing programs that come with the computer. Both are incredible features that allow you to upload directly to facebook or youtube in the case of iMovie.
The keyboard is so easy to use. My fingers fit perfectly over all the letters. Touchpad is very simple too. The speakers I think are the only thing that is lacking on the computer.
Apple seems to not make their speakers very loud, so when using iTunes, your music will never be that loud. The machine itself is very fast. Processing speeds are excellent.
Startup time is just a few seconds when turning it on.
I would definitely recommend this laptop to anyone, especially someone in the arts. Apple's programs are incredible and their computers are so easy to use. I love my MacBook Pro!
