BUY the Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro
13-inch Apple MacBook Pro Specifications:
Mac OS X v10.5.7 (9J3032) Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26GHz (3MB L2 cache, 1066MHZ frontside bus) 2GB 1067MHz DDR3 SDRAM
160GB 500rpm SATA hard disk drive 13.3"
Build and Design The 13.3" MacBook Pro is very sleek and classy, which is what we have come to expect from Apple. The design is sharp with the unibody chassis showing no panel lines or breaks except
on the panel that covers the internals. Apple gives us a very simple interface with little clutter (and ports) turning what is usually a mindless appliance into a work of art. To further simplify the design they switched to an internal battery for this model, instead of having a cover and release bar like in the previous revision.
Build quality is excellent thanks to the very strong and rigid unibody chassis that is machined out a solid block of aluminum. Unless you were going to clamp the MacBook Pro in a vise and try to bend it, you can't really find any flex anywhere on the main half of the notebook.
The screen cover does flex slightly under strong pressure, but with something that thin it was expected. Without any plastic panels, expected. Without any plastic, panels, except at the screen hinge, there are no parts to squeak or creak under normal use.
