Apple MacBook Pro with 750 GB Hard Drive is the latest and greatest version of the souped-up laptop computer that a majority of photographers, graphic designers, video editors, and artist use. It’s my favorite computer because it’s tough, packs thin, and has more space, power, and creative programs than the rest of the computers on the market.
The Apple MacBook Pro features Intel’s new third-generation Core architecture for a boost in processor and memory speeds. New next-generation graphics deliver performance levels that are up to 60 percent faster than before. And high-speed Thunderbolt I/O lets you transfer data at rates up to 10 GBps. The MacBook Pro is a great computer that just got even greater.
As with previous models, the Apple MacBook Pro features a precision unibody enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum, creating a thin and light mobile computing workhorse (less than 1 inch thin and just 4.5 pounds) that’s also highly durable. It includes a 13.3-inch, LED-backlit glass display as well as a glass trackpad that doesn’t include a button (for larger tracking area) that features Apple’s Multi-Touch technology. You’ll also get up to 7 hours of battery life while on the go.
The Apple MacBook Pro also now includes both a high-speed Thunderbolt port and two USB 3 ports, enabling you to easily connect to external displays and a wide variety of high performance peripherals.
This version of the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro (model MD102LL/A) features a 2.9 GHz Core i7 dual-core processor, 750 GB hard drive, and 8 GB of installed RAM. Other features include an 8x SuperDrive, ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, an SDXC card slot, and a FireWire 800 port.
This Mac comes pre-installed with OS X 10.7 Lion, but it is eligible to a free upgrade to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
