The deal: Apple MacBook Pro 15in - premium all-rounder with powerful specs - $1,884.60
Another of the best deals from JB Hi-Fi’s current 10% off Apple notebooks sale is the Apple MacBook Pro 15in (MD318LL/A) for $1,884.60. While vastly larger than the MacBook Air, the exterior is still definitely as nice and the premium aluminium finish is pretty much the gold standard for all notebooks.
A 2nd Gen Intel Core i7 and an AMD Radeon HD 6750M dedicated graphics card are plenty for even very demanding programs, and the 15.4in screen has an above average 1,440 x 900 pixel resolution. It’s also worth noting that the MacBook Pro has a Thunderbolt port, a port that allows for faster data transfer speeds than USB 3.0 for compatible devices.

See a summary of the specs below.
The MacBook has a 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2675QM (2.2GHz), a high-end processor that can fluidly run intensive software and productivity applications. It can burst up to 3.1GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0 Technology if a particularly demanding program is running.
It has a dedicated graphics card called the AMD Radeon HD 6750M. It’s one of the fastest mid-range AMD cards, and most modern games will run smoothly at high settings.
4GB of RAM is enough to run several programs at once smoothly. This will be sufficient for moderately intensive image and video editing tasks as well.
A 500GB hard disk drive is about average in size. It’s big enough for plenty of documents, but movies and the like will fill it sooner rather than later.
It has a 15.4in (1,440 x 900 resolution) gloss screen. This is an above average resolution for the screen size.
The MacBook has average portability, because it weighs 2.54kg and is 24.9mm thick. It'll be straightforward to carry around.
The MacBook has a Thunderbolt port, a new standard developed by Intel that allows for exceptionally high data transfer speeds.
