macbook Pro case 15.4-inch laptop which can be described as the thinnest, this not only because Apple designer's originality, it should be no other reason why. Simplicity is the most prominent feature of Apple, so it does not have a complex curve, "Flat + Round Side" is Apple's notebook. In order to enhance the strength of the fuselage, MacBook Pro is the most outer shell of metal material, in addition to easy to scratch, the majority are good. Therefore, most consumers still prefer their favorite books at the expense of weight, to meet their "metal" complex, which seems to have is the aesthetic of consumer digital products in common.
In addition to the machine, MacBook Pro comes with a host of accessories are also born a pair of white power adapter, remote control, video cable, in terms of appearance or from the use of point of view, Apple's designers have fully proved that the pursuit of a group perfect people.
Magnetic power line design, eliminating the user does not accidentally hit the power cord while the laptop onto the floor of the danger.
On the screen lid, the screen will lock when exposed near the body, and ready to lock, this lock is the body that exist within the magnetic results.
MacBook Pro interface layout
The interface layout, between Apple and PC computers have some obvious differences, we also passed the MacBook Pro just to illustrate. Apple's popular high-capacity data storage systems rely on IEEE 1394 interface for this is because the interface than the USB 2.0 high transfer stability. Currently, IEEE 1394, there are two common interface: IEEE 1394a and IEEE 1394b, twice the difference between the two interfaces of the transfer rate specifications, 1394a for the 400Mb / s, 1394b is 800Mb / s, USB 2.0 is 480Mb / s. Both the MacBook Pro with IEEE 1394 interface, and both have the supply capacity, and we generally see PC notebook computers do not have the IEEE 1394a interface is powered capabilities, if you want to achieve data transmission, the device must with additional power supply.
MacBook Pro has an infrared receiver front-end port and a slot-loading DVD burner.
The personal experience macbook Pro case
1 shortcut keys, light
In addition to the power switch and the keys on the keyboard, MacBook Pro and there is no other shortcut keys, and perhaps this will make many people feel that it is not human, but in fact Apple's shortcuts through the "apple key" + other letter keys to achieve, This saves an extra button in order to ensure the appearance of simplicity. Of course, this is for the lazy, to control a large number of MacBook Pro to have to remember the shortcut key combination, really asking for trouble a bit. If it is installed on Windows, that for many hardware control (eg: wireless card) can only be carried out by mouse clicks. As for the light, MacBook Pro does not have many lights on, power indicator which is not in the power switch, but in the power adapter and connect the plug on the body. When the laptop off for charging, the indicator is red, full of green, the computer boot light has been green. The sleep indicator light is on the screen lock button, the machine sleep when the light was "breathing" status by the dim light, then dark, brighten, and constantly "breathing." http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NOVR66S
2 keyboard and touchpad
MacBook Pro's keyboard feels very good, the key process, bond distance and flexibility are often quite suitable for the user typing. Caps are very particular about the material, on the keycap on the phone, can feel its soft, but when the actual percussion, keys of force feedback is still accurate. Curved surface of the keycap force can widen the fingers, the fingers and the key to better integration. Keystroke noise is very small, even if prolonged use, the user's fingers will not feel tired. In order to meet the needs of workaholic, MacBook Pro keyboard backlight underground design, when ambient light is low, the keyboard backlight automatically activated, even in dark environment, each user can see the clear button. For PC users, using this keyboard is the most convenient place to get used to - used to the "Apple key" as the "Windows key" to use, used to not NumsLock key keyboard, and the habit of using F1 ~ F12 of the unspoken rules ( adjust the screen brightness, volume, etc. do not need to press the Fn key a). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NOVR5BO
Touchpad, the effect does not support the compact Apple notebook to achieve click PC users need most is a little habits. In addition, although the MacBook Pro's touchpad buttons long and wide, but only on behalf of a left functional. If we can use MacBook with Windows operating system, then, may carry with a USB mouse to improve system operating efficiency.
3 audio and video
Apple's screen effect has been well known in the industry, the MacBook Pro's screen does not disappoint. In Windows mode, we have professional testing equipment by Konica Minolta CS-200 Color Analyzer tested it. Test results show that the center of the screen more than 300 lumens of brightness, brightness uniformity and also reached the level of excellence, but in the absence of any screen settings, the screen contrast is not high. And 256 by solid gray grid observation, we found that the MacBook Pro's screen color very pure, natural color transition, and gray areas, after adjusting the screen, the best is still unable to identify the five grid, gray level is not count to reach the top. MacBook Pro also supports automatic screen brightness adjustment function, when the ambient light is dark down the screen brightness is also reduced, to protect the user's eyes.
Konica Minolta CS-200 through the test come, Apple MacBook Pro's LCD screen average brightness of 285 lumens, LED-backlit screen almost level, and the contrast is more general, at the average level.
Sound area, MacBook Pro keyboard, speakers on both sides of the volume is still quite large, but the sound quality is not outstanding, the average level in the notebook market. It is worth mentioning that, although the MacBook Pro apple a1185 battery has only two audio-related jacks, but the jacks are quite comprehensive, especially for audio players or audio creative professionals. Headphone jack and audio input jacks are simultaneously support Fibre. Specific options can be adjusted as follows:
MacBook Pro the place where the speaker is rather special, because it is also the location of sensor, the automatic adjustment of screen brightness and keyboard backlight switch, completed by the band area.
4 camera (iSight)
Camera on the MacBook Pro is called iSight, this 30-megapixel camera, image quality in general, but the response speed is also good. Its most distinctive point is the user when taking a picture, a 3,2,1 countdown timer, the machine after the screen will instantly turn white, in order to achieve the flash. In the absence of the corresponding software support, iSight in Vista should be difficult to achieve multi-video, and view multiple chatters image.
5 Heat and Noise
MacBook Pro's casing is made basic by the metal, if the machine is still a long put, then the staff just does it feel when the machine will be able to feel the shell is very cold. After the system is turned on and Vista, MacBook Pro temperature slowly rising, but the palm rest temperature control was also, though feel clearly heating up, but still acceptable. After entering Vista, CPU core temperature between 42 ~ 43 degrees Celsius, 100% load when the CPU enters the state, the core temperature rapidly increased to 81 to 83 degrees Celsius. But the MacBook Pro's design is quite cautious, when the CPU to the highest temperature, CPU core frequency automatically reduced to 1GHz, this time the CPU core temperature under control, and down. To 60 degrees Celsius, CPU 2.33GHz frequency back to the state.
The hardware configuration analysis
Evaluation on the MacBook Pro today, it's hardware architecture has been the mainstream of architecture than a generation behind, but that is Centrino 3 generations in the super-configuration, hardware performance continues to meet professionals and Apple players. Of course, if you are a gamer, then it is recommended that you choose the latest MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro apple a1280 batteryas the latest addition to the use of Centrino architecture to other, more onboard nVidia Geforce 8600M GT, also equipped with LED-backlit LCD screen.
As the evaluation process is the critical point of release of Leopard, Apple has long ceased to provide the official download Bootcamp, we also had a third-party website before the release of the latest version of Leopard Bootcamp (1.4 Beta) installed, just follow the installation guide Bootcamp can be completed successfully the installation of Windows Vista, because PConline evaluation room in the last year tried to install Windows XP MacBook case, the installation of Vista it appears more forward-looking and representation.
Windows Vista installation is complete, easy to use Bootcamp to load Windows driver produced even successfully installed Vista system. Installed Vista, the taskbar has loaded Bootcamp features, functions through the Bootcamp will be able to switch to Mac after restarting the system.
The tests are conducted for MacBook Pro's performance in Vista to do, falls PConline evaluation room has begun using the latest software, MobileMark 2007 tests, of course, will not miss this opportunity to test some of its depth. Test results show that delivery of this MacBook Pro test machine performance at least as much as on the current high-end Centrino laptop, and go beyond the Core Duo 2 T7500 processor alone significantly notebook. This is of course due to T7600 processor with the help of a high frequency.
Slightly less than that, apple macbook pro 15 inch batteryusing the Fujitsu SATA hard disk performance is not good enough, if you want to play to the highest performance, MacBook Pro, you can replace the hard drive to achieve better performance.
Leopard's release has a very far-reaching significance, first of all it is the old Apple users a gluttonous feast meal, functional and beautiful at the same, and secondly, it has taken close to PC users, the most important step. Because of this, we in this evaluation of the MacBook Pro is especially important.
Test results show that, MacBook Pro performance full compliance with general performance notebook Intel Centrino architecture, even though platform is Centrino 3, MacBook Pro configuration is still Centrino 4 platform with high-end models a draw, but unfortunately the price exceeds the high-end Centrino 4 generation of notebook average. As more and more Apple brand display in front of consumers, coupled with Leopard's official listing, we believe that there will be a part of the original PC consumers admiring and play Mac system, which should also hope to see Apple to allow more consumers about Apple, so that more consumers to compare apples systems and Windows systems.
· Advantages: higher hardware configuration, support for Mac OS and Windows operating systems;
· Disadvantages: higher prices, the original PC users need to spend some time to adapt.
