  1. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again:

    Apple Certified Refurb is the only way to buy. I’m on my third PowerBook and my iPod 60GB was a refurb, too. No issues and they’re really just like new. I use the extra money for RAM and other extras.

    About ready to make the jump to MacBook Pro…

  2. MacBook Pro’s are a waste of money for the price.

    1: 32 bit processors, no Firewire 800 , limited connectivity and expansion

    2: To get anything out of them you have to max the RAM and get a 7,200 RPM hard drive. No good 3D gaming.

    3: Lose it, drop it, drive off with it on the roof of your car, leave it in the hot sun, stolen etc…

    4: $4500 tricked out with AppleCare.

    5: Only good for 2-3 years and then it’s done or obsolete.

    Better to buy a Quad, the next grade up video card, Apple care, 4GB of RAM and a cheap monitor for just about the same price.

    1: It will be more than twice as powerful, it’s expandable, upgrade as you go.

    2: All software is ready for it as well as future software (universal binaries)

    3: The life of the machine is longer 5-7 years of good solid use

    4: 3D game and run full blast on anything, multiple apps etc.

    5: Total yearly cost of ownership is lower.

    6: Buy a cheap MacBook refurbished or a G4 laptop for under $1000.

  3. Static Mesh/Mac Dude clone,

    I can’t believe your write again the same idiocy. I own a Quad AND a PBG4 and you know what, I’m planning on upgrading to MBPro. Do you know, friend?

    BECAUSE I CAN’T LUG THE QUAD AROUND THE WORLD WHEN I TRAVEl!

    GOT THAT?

    Now stop wasting MDN space with your nonsense!

  4. Hey Mesh, you’re absolutely right! You’ve convinced me. I’m buying a quad, lots of ram, maybe two cheap monitors, a three man crew of unemployed homeless people at minimum wage and a long extention cord. Add one of those luggage trollies and I can go anywhere!

  5. And the multi-media capabilities of the MacBook Pro are just horrible for that $4500 too, I may add.

    I can have three TV windows, a DVD movie, iTunes visuals in a window, a animated screen-saver as the desktop and a 3D video game all going on AT ONCE on my Duallie 2.

    I can only imagine what I could do with a Quad and the latest video card.

    Don’t shortchange yourself, a MBP is just a overpriced status symbol.

    MDW: “used” MacDude was used and abused by the graphics art establishment, too much chemicals in the darkroom. Be glad you got Photoshop.

  6. BECAUSE I CAN’T LUG THE QUAD AROUND THE WORLD WHEN I TRAVEl!

    And what do you seriously expect that $4500 overpriced, underpowered 32 bit processor machine to do for you?

    1: You really can’t do video too much because the hard drive is too small and slow, forget HD. Forget dragging tons of equipment to make it somewhat usable. Forget most audio too. Forget dragging a larger monitor.

    2: You really can’t 3D game because the video card is lame and hobbled because of heat issues.

    3: You can’t use Photoshop well because it’s not Intel ready yet nor much of anything else.

    So your stuck really being able to do much of anything “professional performance grade” on it. So your going to use it to then get online, email and perhaps iChat, watch a few DVD’s, run a few spreadsheets.

    You can use the cheap G4 or MacBook for that. Then when I come to rob you, you only lose $1000 instead of $4500 MPB.

    It’s STUPID to buy a MacBook Pro at this time. The batteries are swelling, it’s hot, there’s too much thermal paste on the processors etc.

    Wait for rev 2 if your so hot to throw away $4500 dumbarse.

  7. Static Mesh,

    If it’s no good for HD and streaming video, how come my fellow professional video editor just cranked out a big edit on his MacBook Pro 15″?

    While I agree that waiting for revision 2 is a good idea, the current models run slightly faster than our Dual 2.5 G5s. Now my friend did say that he wished he had waited for the 17″ MacBook since it DOES HAVE FIREWIRE 800, contrary to what you stated…

    Photoshop runs at least as fast on the MacBook in rosetta as it does on my 1.33 GHz G4 Powerbook.

  8. Mac users don’t use their computers for games, Photoshop not being Universal is not the MacBook Pro’s fault and your rant about forgetting audio and video is just plain ignorant.

    Yes there will be some professionals that need more power, they are waiting for the new “Power Mac” or whatever Apple will be calling it. For now people who need Photoshop to run at top speeds and need the raw power for Final Cut Pro will use a Power Mac G5. End of story.

    In the meantime if you need a reliable, “portable” computer, the MacBook Pro is just fine. Will it get substantially better with the next generation… of course, that’s just common sense. If you don’t like the MacBook Pro don’t buy one, but don’t bash other people who need a portable computer right now.

    And your argument that they will last only 2-3 years is just plain wrong and, quite frankly, ignorant. I still have a PowerBook G3 that runs OS X Tiger just fine. Is it slow yes, but it works and if all you need it for is E-mail and websurfing and Office work… it is a champ. Oh, and I bought it 6 years ago.

  9. Yo mesh.
    Why don’t you take like a week off from posting here huh?

    Sounds like you’ve got a killer set up, can’t you find something better to do?
    I dunno, maybe,
    work?

    Most of us did think a little bit about what we needed when we placed our orders.

    But thanks for letting us know we were all so freaking wrong.

    Maybe you could write a letter to Steve Jobs to tell him to stop selling people things YOU don’t need. We’ll just ignore all the other “useless” opinions around here.

    Thanks Buddy.
    Oh hey, what’s your high score?
    Mine’s $13.702.44 USD for the last gig with my POS Powerbook as an essential tool… I mean “crutch”

    Huh! Magic word is “art” I’ll be dammed. Jackass

  10. Those are great deals. I picked up a MacBook Pro 1.83Ghz months ago for $1699 and I’m super happy with it.

    If I didn’t somtimes play games, I’d totally jump on that black MacBook.
