Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch ReviewWith the latest iteration of its 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pro laptops, Apple finally jumped onto the Intel Core i3 and Core i5 bandwagon—bringing its flagship line of laptops up to the same performance level as the Windows-based competition (the 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops still use Intel Core 2 Duo processors). With a starting price of $1,799 for the 15-inch model, and $2,299 for the 17-inch version, MacBook Pros are far from your garden-variety bargain-basement laptops.

We had the opportunity to take a look at the base 15-inch MacBook Pro model, which comes with a 2.4GHz Core i5 processor, 4GB of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM, a 320GB hard drive, DVD±RW DL optical drive, and switchable graphics using the Intel GMA that is built into the Core i5 processor and a discrete Nvidia GeForce GT 330M GPU...

Nearly identical specs!! This one has a bigger hard drive and 14" LED backlit LCD. $920

You can upgrade to a 17" screen for an extra $80 instead of $500!!!

Does Apple REALLY think their brand and OS are worth THAT much more??? Jeebus

APPLE TAX!

They don't have to sell to a lot of customers at that price, just the really hard core "Sold Unconditionally On Apple" crowd will make them a fortune and they'll be ecstatic over them too.

Happy buyers, plus heavy profits equals a win-win situation for Steve and the gang.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Poor clueless consumers. It's a shame.
