New MacBookPro Unboxing and Very First Impressions
Apple Japan was kind enough to send us their shiny (oh yeah, very shiny) and new MacBookPro for review.
My first impressions are divided into two categories… The Screen, and the Rest.
The Rest. The New MacBookPro is very stunning, the notebook looks strong and well built, the finish once more is outstanding, and even if I was skeptical about the keyboard, I’m pretty confident that I’ll get used to it very quickly. The new Trackpad is also interesting and I don’t see any problems with using it, especially when it comes to using the mouse button. The MacBookPro is a stunner in terms of appearance, design, and construction.
The Screen. I never thought about it before, but WOW, Apple is way ahead of the other major PC manufacturers. Apple really up some nice features, like the new trackpad and “Check the Boss Behind You” Mode with a mirror built-in the screen… Oh wait, that’s not a feature! It’s my display I’m talking about!
Switched off the screen becomes a huge black mirror, switched on things are a little better with the brightness set to max. OH boy! I’m looking forward to seeing the new MacBookPro in action on the go and powered with by its battery, and in battery power saving mode with the brightness set to minimum… Shiny!
