Early Report Card: New MacBook & MacBook Pro

Outperforming

Trick new trackpad looks lush.  I never used the button on mine anyway…bring on the finger contortions.

Thinner MacBook looks great

New GPUs should be cracking

Price drop for white chassis is welcome 

Needs Improvement

Price rise to $1599 for the top end MacBook doesn’t sit well with the sinking economy

Glossy screens are awful.  At home, in the sun, on the plane unless you’re an isle seat lover.

$1299 buys less CPU power than $999…?

New MBP’s wide black screen bezel put to shame by old MBP

Need to log-off to change video modes eh…?  Sony does it better with Vista.  Now that’s a bag of hurt.

Pictures to follow in due course…
