At last ! I own MacBook Pro
Yup! Thats right, after a long search I finally ended up on this great piece of art from Apple ! My MacBook Pro, my baby ! I love it . You can’t possibly find anything to hate in it. Everything is just so cool.
I do think its a bit heavy for its size but who cares when it offers such a wonderful configuration.
- Connected to internet while traveling in just 5 mins, it recognized my T610 (also somehow got the exact T610 icon ) via bluetooth ! Opening my mail box was a piece of cake.
- Installing windows with bootcamp was another easy task. Create a Partition > Install windows > Done ! But of course windows did give me a bit of trouble installing sound drivers. Now I am thinking of moving to parallels.
- Well if you are shifting from windows to mac everything seems to be cool. Still to start with .. PhotoBooth is something which attracts everyones attention. You can take decent quality images from from the small iSight camera. The interesting part is the ability to create funny images with different frames !
- Ambient Light / Motion – MBP has a Ambient light and sudden motion sensors. If you turn of the rooms light i.e the room gets darker then the keyboard automatically glows with ambilight, of which we can control the brightness. The sensors also lower the screen brightness. Too Cool !
- MagSafe – Not a great deal but the feature is practical.
- Double Click – Yes, Unlike previous versions of mac, in macbook pro you can do the right click by touching 2 fingers together in the trackpad.
- Out of the Box – Open the box > get started . no drivers, no installations, no mess, complete satisfaction !
- Speech – You can assign a voice and keyboard shortcut and can have any text read. i.e Select a a paragraph from a ebook and press the shortcut you have asigned and the lady/person’s voice will read the paragraph to you.
- ExposÃ© – You can assign a function to each corner of the screen, which when hovered with curser will activate the function.
- iCal – This application is just what I needed, a simple calender which tells you the date and has alarm or repeat feature.
- Spotlight – A quick search. A must have !
- iMovie HD – A wonderful Movie Maker which has different professional themes.
