This is my new 15 inch MacBook Pro with an i5 chipset, 256Mb NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M discreet graphics chip, 1/2Tb 7200RPM drive, 4Gb of Ram and the new high resolution (1680×1050) anti-glare led back lit display model number: MacBookPro6,2. For the record I’m upgrading from this:
We don’t do too many unboxings here at 2FatDads, usually because Canucks get the shaft and can only get new products months after our Southern neighbours even though we all know they are shipping these new shiny toys from China and delivering them a few degree to the North shouldn’t really be an issue.
And I must admit the packing is a lot better than how Apple did it 4 years ago.
The new packaging is almost all cardboard and only the smallest amount of plastic was used. This idea was converge by the top packaging companies and their creative design team like Printron and others that also use this type of packaging to save our living planet even in the smallest way that we can.
The all aluminum Magsafe is just beautiful, fits flush with the unibody casing and has much less chance of getting knocked out of place with using the MacBook Pro on your lap and the quality of the cable as been improved quite a lot as well. I still fear about the cable overheating as it did on the White MacBook since it’s sits so close the the CPU heatsink in the case but I’m going to trust Johnny Ive and the team on this one.
I’m pretty pleased with finally “going pro” and also going big! Wow the display is big and bright. And the anti-glare (matte for you and me) is totally worth the extra loonies. No more stupid neon light glare. The resolution is 1680x 1050, that is the maximum resolution of my 22inch Dell & Samsung monitors, all on a 15 Inch screen. Also thank Apple for not actually calling it HD, high resolution will do me just fine.
So there you go my new MacBook Pro i5 Unboxed, and I hope the macbook keys sticking won’t happen this time – all by a fairly large Canuck!
