Time to switch? – Thinkpad vs. MacBook Pro – Part II

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 Buffer 0 LinkedIn 0 0 Flares ×

Apple released the 17″ MacBook Pro last Monday. In Part I of my Apple vs Thinkpad post I mentioned a few reasons why I’m strongly considering the MacBook Pro. The 17″ model adds Firewire 800, 8x super Drive, and obviously a larger screen. If Apple had just added the option for a speed bump in the Core Duo it may have just been the tipping point.

A few more reviews.

On a side note the MacBook Pro is seeing more and more applications get ported to native Intel and/or Universal support. Just one more feather in the MacBook’s hat.
