The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop is a truly remarkable and innovative computer.
Constructed from a single piece of solid aluminium, its unique ‘unibody’ design is ultra-thin, beautifully streamlined, and ultra durable. This aluminium shell has been beautifully integrated with its glass screen – which shows imagery which is sharper and richer than ever before. The keyboard is comfortable and responsive, and thanks to its new intuitive multi-touch trackpad navigation is simple.
The MacBook Pro may be a style icon, but it's also a powerful, feature packed laptop capable of handling all sorts of multimedia and work-based applications. The MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop has a speedy 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of memory and 500GB of hard drive space, enabling it to quickly perform multiple tasks simultaneously. You can store your photos, videos and music on the MacBook Pro's hard drive and edit, organise and share them with Apple’s iLife software, which comes with the MacBook Pro. This amazing application suite includes: iPhoto, which lets you share your digital photos; GarageBand, which enables you to record your own music and podcasts and iMovie, which you can use to make your own films. The 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with Mac OS X Lion installed, which features a whole host of applications to help you get the most out of your laptop including among others: iTunes, iChat, Safari, QuickTime and Photo Booth.
The MacBook Pro comes alive when watching films or playing games. With Intel’s HD Graphics 3000 graphics card, as well as a separate AMD Radeon HD 6750M graphics card with its own 512 megabytes of dedicated memory, you’ll enjoy movies, games and video with richer colours and finer details. The built-in HD webcam has been specifically designed for FaceTime, enabling you to video message your friends and family wherever you are in the world if they’ve got a compatible Apple device, such as an iPhone, iPad or Mac. Best of all it connects directly through your wireless connection, for free.
The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop has an impressive 7 hour battery life, so you’re able to play games, watch movies or connect to the internet on the move. It also equipped with thunderbolt technology which provides you with lightening quick transfer speeds up to 20 times faster than USB 2.0.

Amazing computer, with truly beautiful looks and spec

Voted hot!

That's not a bad price for the refreshed model if you can't get the educational discount. I'm sure there'll be a few people who will have lots to say about Apple, form a line...

if you buy one of these you may as well just put your money down a drain

Got mine from the student site, never asked any questions, only proof of ID as first time I shopped with them, they did not ask for NUS card.

I have always been a PC man up until 3 months ago when I bought this bad boy. Will never go back to PC, as dont game.

The only thing I dont really like is the RAR support, no winrar and the programs suck for mac

EDIT: - heat added

You need to have a look for a program called "The Unarchiver" - deals with RAR files quite happily

What other programs can't you find? I'm a recent convert to Mac myself so have been sniffing out OSX versions of programs I use.

If you like the MacBook look but don't want to spend that cash there are a few Dell xps15z on Dell Outlet; e.g. this i5 at £546.23 delivered (I believe all the XPS15z i5 have GeForce GT525 graphics)

Canada16 - Try a program called The Unarchiver, it's free and handles pretty much all compression types. There are plenty of other programs that may be better for you

Great price.

For normal mortals that thunderbolt adapter and no USB 3.0 ports looks a right royal pain - just £300 for a 1TB lacie external disk; and a Thunderbolt to USB3 adaptor will be around $270 when released...

My Dell XPS L702X is 17", is more powerful, and cost less (even after upgrading to 8GB RAM and adding a 128GB SSD).
It also runs every app and game I want, and has a 4yr on-site warranty.

But if you simply have to be trendy, go ahead and waste your money on this Macbook pro.

Is it, well done, go pat yourself on the back.

With the massive savings you made by buying a Dell you can put that money towards a body kit for your Kia so it looks a bit more like a Golf

There are so of apps for extracting rar files - I use UnRarX, (the same company make a very fast image viewer, Xee, which I prefer over Apple's image previewer) but most people use Unarchiver, Stuffit Destinations, Winzip, Keka. There are so many others (search the Downloads section of cnet). I haven't had a need to use Winrar's own product but their latest RAR 4.10 beta 2 is also available for Mac OS X (command line). There are niche programs/applications for all platforms but I can't remember ever feeling I lacked anything when in Mac OS X or Linux.

Edit. If there was a Windows application you were attached to, you could install Virtual Box for Mac (free) and install Windows and Linux within that and have all three operating systems running on the same screen.

If you factor in the resale value of an Apple laptop then it's not quite throwing money down the drain. They're expensive but you'll pay a premium for anything in life thats 'one of the best'. I dont any Apple products but I can appreciate why people do.

Do you seriously think a 4 year-old mac book will be worth £500+?

There are very good reasons to buy a Mac - but I don't think you can justify a purchase on reliability (other brands are better or as good) or on re-sale value.

Well I just typed Macbook Pro into ebay, there are 2 on the first half of the first page that are 15" 2007 models. One is £515 and the other £520.

So yes a 4 year old Macbook is worth £500+.

Apple haters ... have you ever tried an apple?! not a quick go in an apple store, I mean proper go. You would never go back to a pc again.

Wow! You really can sell anything on eBay!

Seriously I couldn't imagine someone buying a second-hand 4 year old computer for more than peanuts - I take back my earlier comment.
