  The Macbook Pro 13 2.9 is like a BMW,  2012-07-13
By Tom Hockman

The newest Macbook Pro 13 with souped up processor at 2.9 Ghz I7 is small, but powerful. It feels like you're driving a small, high performance sports car. I just upgraded from a Core Duo 2008 15" Macbook Pro and very glad I did. I waited until this newest batch of Macbooks was released, and evaluated the choices carefully. The new Retina display looks nice, but I just couldn't justify the price. The 15" standard display was my second choice, but that one also jumped to the near $2000 mark to get it to 8 GB RAM and a 750 GB hard drive. So, I went to my third choice, the 13" Macbook Pro 2.9 Ghz with 8 GB RAM standard and a 750 GB hard drive for about $1500. This model is the sweet spot for price and specs that I wanted most. I miss the extra screen real estate at times, but the boost in power and RAM from my old Macbook makes it all worthwhile. This Macbook runs my Parallels VMs with gusto. Whereas before, I had to shut everthing else down to launch a VM and have enough RAM/CPU to handle the load, this Macbook Pro can run a VM, iTunes, Word, and Firefox without missing a beat. This is the first Macbook to have 8 GB RAM standard (other than Retina). While you can get a RAM upgrade fairly cheap aftermarket, you have to deal with disassembling the computer to get to the RAM. Why bother if you can easily get it with the Macbook and not pay an extra $200? Even though this is the "standard" display, it looks show sharp and the color depth so rich compared to my 2008 model that I am totally satisfied with the display. I don't create videos or professional photos, so I don't need a retina-level display for my activities. If you can live with a 13" screen, this is the model to get!
