    Default Apple Mac Book Pro

    I've been looking into buying a laptop for some time now and everyone recommends the Mac Book Pro. Are there any pros/cons I should know before buying? I'm not computer savy other than basic operating procedures. I'm planning on going back to school and will be using it for that. Are there any recommendations where to purchase other than a Best Buy or Apple store?

    I'd say go for it, I've had my 13'' alum. MB for 3 years now and the only problem I had was the hard drive failed about 7 months ago. Just replaced the drive and had all my stuff transfered over. Other than that it's been the best computer I've owned by far. Thinking of upgrading to a new 15" pro soon.

    Hardware and quality wise, it's one of the best (if not the best) laptop money can buy. A little more expensive that the PC counterpart, but it's Apple so it's understandable. Got my 15.4 inch since 2008 almost 3 years of heavy usage and no problems whatsoever.

    I love my MBP, I bought it a couple of months ago and handles programs like photoshop, Illustrator, iTunes, Google Chrome and Skype all at once without lagging.

    I'm going to suggest you look into the new samsung notebooks as well as the lenovos. I would say lenovo is easily on par with apple. Plus most of their hardware is linux compatible out of the gate, if you are into that kind of thing. If you want an apple computer though and won't be persuaded any other way thats fine you will most likely be happy with your purchase.

    You can't go wrong with Apple...

    I have a friend who is an Anti-Apple guy and over the past 5 years he has gone from Acer, to HP to Dell to Toshiba and all of them have died...he is buying an Asus this week and just won't get an Apple out of ego issues

    I haven't had much luck with those brands either, the business class toshiba's are usually pretty nice, but expensive. Thats why I suggest looking into lenovo and samsung.

    i suggest not touching the the Samsung laptop. the worst one ever. My brother bought one, i think the one that made it look like the macbook pro, the touchpad on the Samsung is the worst. it is trying to immitate Apple in the worst way. My brother returned it after the second day, and got the 13" Macbook Air. He is so happy that he goes with Apple.
