New 17″ Macbook Pro

Apple also released a new 17″ Macbook Pro in it’s last Macworld, with some pretty cool features.  The “new” Macbook Pro is really just a 17″ version of the unibody released earlier this year.  However, at 6.6 pounds, it’s the lightest 17″ notebook, and also is said to have an 8 hour battery, a serious battery breakthrough for a 17″ media notebook.  You can find more and watch the videos at

    Fantastic battery life cycle and charge capacity! 8hrs?? 1000 charge cycles? that’s incredible!
    I’m still waiting for the new iMacs; they’re already at a great value, and if they release a even more powerful 24″, I’m interested. 1920 x 1200 is a designer’s computer paradise.

    @Crystal-Yes, if only…

    @Ray-sweet res.


  4. Oh man Ray… 8 hours? 1000 charge cycles? I better try to find a couple more jobs to get me there faster!

    A dozen jobs!

    The only problem is, once your battery dies you need to buy a WHOLE NEW MACBOOK!!!

  7. Tito says:

    The battery is irreplaceable.
    Not even Apple will replace your battery as it is part of the chasse.
    Much better to buy the 15″ and replace the battery once for the same price (or close enough) to get the same life.

    P.S. the reason I did 2 comments is because I accidentally hit “Submit Comment”:{

  8. I heard about that… It seems to be quite a problem. =) I was planning on getting the 15″ anyway. The Pros are nice but they seem “too” big. I mean, 17 inches is hard to “carry” places.

    Why go and spend the extra money if you don’t need to? In my opinion, buy a PC, then if you need extra power to accomplish the task at hand (IE, graphics), go for Mac.

    Stick with the primary company (Microsoft), then move on to a more specific brand if you need it to get your job done.

  10. Tito says:

    Why not just go Mac instead of both?
    If you need the job done and you know there might be a need for the power, go Mac.

    • Jeff says:

      “might be a need for the power, go Mac.”

      exactly. The power is available on PC based systems, as well, for cheaper. Unless you’re really good, it boils down to UI and cost…

    And durability…
