Conclusion from NotebookReview:

This is an excellent upgrade to the MacBook Pro, I’m extremely satisfied with it so far. I’m new to Mac computers, new to OS X, but I am one happy switcher. The MBP would be an excellent choice for anyone looking to purchase a performance laptop, or even desktop replacement. Combine that performance with Apple’s sexy design, and the MBP is a great purchase.
