MacBook Pro 13' Review for Features and Technical Specifications
As far as technical specifications, the 13' MacBook Pro is average at best. The base model comes with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1066MHz frontside bus, 250GB hard drive, 4GB or RAM, and a SuperDrive DVD burner. The higher-end model comes with a 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 1066MHz frontside bus, 320GB hard drive, 4GB of RAM, and a SuperDrive DVD burner. Both models feature the same NVIDIA® Geforce 320M graphics processor.
The processor choice and fontside bus speed of the 13' MacBook Pros are not a bad deal.You cannot get a $500 Dell laptop with a processor and frontside bus as good as a MacBook Pro. A comparable Dell laptop would most likely run you close to $1000.
The hard drive capacity that comes with the 13' MacBook Pro is not the best offer out there. A 250GB HD is considered low for a laptop in the price range of a MacBook Pro.
The 13' MacBook Pro has the following ports and expandability options:
MagSafe Power Adapter, Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, Mini DisplayPort, 2-USB 2.0 slots, SD Card Reader, Audio in/out.
All of the above options are pretty much standard on any laptop. There are some much cheaper laptops on the market that have even more ports than the 13' MacBook Pro.
