A rep from local Apple reseller, Power Mac Center, sent a note informing me that the new batch MacBook Pros has just arrived. These are the ones that have the Thunderbolt technology (10Gbps port speed, formerly referred to as Intel Light Peak).

Was actually hoping the local stores would sell the laptops at a much lower price than the SRP provided by Apple. Not sure if this is the trend with Power Mac but the last time I bought a Macbook Air at iStudio, it was cheaper than Apple’s official prices.

I believe nothing could beat this beast in term of performance. Design wise, it’s classical and no other pc laptop able to match with the unibody aluminum case. However, the worst part of the MacBook Pro is also the aluminum case. It is very prone to scratches cause by day to day usage especially using outdoor. I would suggest to get it cover up by skinstyler.com wrist rest products. They help to reduce the sharpness edge of aluminum case and also protect it from scratches. Do check out their classical designer collection to match with MacBook Pro http://www.skinstyler.com/wrist-rest-protection-cover-skin-designer-collection-c-26_25.html

Depends on your needs. If you’re going after gaming performance for for vaio sb. . but if your’re after mobility, go for macbook pro. I’m a macbook pro user. Battery lasts 7.5-8 hrs on a single charge. :D

Macbooks are overpriced if you consider only the specs, but mix in its excellent build quality (I haven’t been able to use any laptop to date that is both sturdy and sexy as a Macbook) and the price starts to get more reasonable.

Go to Digital Hub if you’re gonna buy Macs cuz it’s cheaper there.

Wow! Prices almost gave me a heart attack. lol But awesome specs. We also bought our Mac Book air at istudio in greenhills and the price is a lot lot lower than Power Mac.

You would probably get the same price because of the shipping fees.
