The deal: MacBook Pro 13in - $50 off RRP on Apple allrounder notebook - $1,399.00
For $1,399 at Diamonds the Apple MacBook Pro 13in is a great ultraportable notebook that has the functionality of a heavier allrounder notebook. While there is a premium to pay for the unique thinness, low weight and physical design, rest assured that under the sleek exterior there’s a powerful interior.
The first major part of that interior is an Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.4GHz), one of the better notebook Intel Core 2 Duos that has no trouble with just about any productivity application except for the most hardcore ones. An NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card is a bit on the low-end, but it still provides enough graphics rendering to ensure versatile functionality. The 4GB of RAM is also helpful, as it makes it easier to multi-task with several programs at once.
A 250GB hard drive is very small, so some hard choices will have to be made about which movies, songs and photos will be stored on the MacBook Pro 13in’s hard drive. Still, at 2.04kg with a thickness of 24.1mm it’s clear why the storage size is small; fitting in anything larger would have been very difficult without using more expensive solid state drives. The 13.3in (1,280x800 resolution) screen is definitely enough for productivity applications, gaming or watching movies.
