Good: Battery life, Backlit keyboard, fast, Core i5 processor, Attractive design, durable, Almost everything!
Bad: Fans kick in when playing a 3d game.
Comment: The laptop is by far the best laptop i have ever used, i have had over 4 laptops and this laptop is my 5th, Its the best one i have had to date!
People worrying about graphics may be interested in this as the laptop can handle most games at med - high settings depending on games of couse but it will run most valve games at med with a aceptable framerate
Bad: Nothing about the laptop just lack of availability of programmes for macs compared to pc's
Comment: I love it. The display is excellent and so is the system. the touch trackpad is good too. It allows easy scrolling and clicking. The way the keyboard is set out is perfect. just the way i like it.
Good: fast, easy to use
Bad: have not noticed anything bad yet, but have only had it for 1 week!
Comment: great computer, can't believe i finally own one!
Bad: Well when i first got mine after 3 months my hardrive broke for no reason, But it fine now , Just a shame i lost all my stuff o if you are getting this i would recommend a backup harddrive.
Good: Solid unibody design, great multitouch trackpad, excellent backlit keyboard, decent grunt from i5 processor, overall design is sleek and clean.
Bad: No dedicated graphics card, pricey but worth it.
Comment: Overall a great laptop with far superior build quality than any Windows alternative, it can be quite pricey but this is in part offset with the suit of excellent software included (no bloatware) and with the price of the iWork suite & future OS costing a fraction of the latest windows OS make it more bearable.
Buying this has converted me from a lifelong windows user, the OS is simple and combined with multitouch is a dream to use, integration with my iPhone & iPad 2 is smooth as silk and given Mountain Lion is just around the corner will become even more fluid.
The only downside is the price which is quite high however comparing the build quality of this to a windows laptop which if your lucky will last 2 years as my last top end one did makes it seem less of a pain.
Overall don't think buy now!
Good: Trackpad, Speed, OS, Sexy Design, Easy to Use, Sturdy
Comment: Great piece of kit, one of the(if not the) best OS to use, it's great for individuals who like something different. Using the track-pad is probably for me the best thing about it, it makes browsing a joy and the simplistic uni-body design is gorgeous.
This is a great piece of kit for me personally, but when it comes to work/business, windows tops, there are just too many problems when integrating Mac's within a Window's environment, businesses now a days just use windows expensively.
Good: OSX, excellent trackpad, attractive unibody design, good battery life,
Bad: Premium price
Comment: The functionality of the trackpad alone justifies its premium price, browsing is no longer a chore but a joy and for students such as myself can purchase Microsoft Office-like applications at a fraction of the cost such as Pages, Numbers and Keynote at the App Store.
Good: Runs osx lion, core i5 proccesor with optional quad core i7, very light and sexy, obtains no virus's, large app store, fast, outstanding
Bad: Very expensive
Good: Its unbelievably easy to use. I have been a window user all my life, but I have been successfully changed! I find it very easy to use, unbelievably fast and just an all round brilliant computer!
Bad: I can't find anything thats bad!
Comment: This is a very good machine. Its very easy to use, and comes with some very good software. If your not going to use all of the features, e.g. iPhoto, iMovie then you may as well buy a fast and well designed and stylish laptop thats doesn't have the professional software included on this, but if this laptop is used to its full potential, its worth the money, and the money invested in this will mean this laptop will last me for at least 4 years!
