Macintosh - Standard Laptops

MacBook Pro 15"

The MacBook Pro is suitable for users desiring a combination of mobility and power. It is adaptable to most major computing tasks, from day-to-day office activities to moderately heavy image, audio or video editing, programming, mathematical computation, etc. It is fully capable of connecting to all standard networks, both wired and wireless, and includes an array of expansion and connectivity options for backups, data transfer, peripheral connections, etc.

Users who desire a more compact model may wish to consider the MacBook, (scroll down to view). Users who desire a larger display may wish to consider the 17" model, which is substantially identical to the 15" in terms of features aside from the display.
