Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch 2011 Edition Review - Apple MacBook Pro 17-inch 2011 Edition Review

"The 2011 Edition Apple MacBook Pro's are some seriously beautiful pieces of technology. Thin, unbelievably fast, amazing screen and finally, not so expensive. Spec-wise, Apple throw some decent tech into their 17-inch MacBook Pro. The 17-inch model contains; an Intel Core i7 2.2GHz processor (6MB shared L3 cache), 4GB of 1333MHz DDR3 memory (upgradeable to 8GB), 750GB 5400-rpm SATA HDD, AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU with 1GB GDDR5 memory, Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 384MB of DDR3 shared with main memory, and a 17-inch LED-backlit glossy widescreen display with a resolution of 1920x1200. Other features included are Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, USB 2.0 (3 ports), Thunderbolt, Audio line in/out, ExpressCard/34 slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, an 8x slot-loading SuperDrive (DVD and CD-capable), full-size backlit keyboard and a multi-touch trackpad. I picked up the 17-inch MacBook Pro for AUD $2600 which is not bad at all. Yes, it's a premium of roughly $1000 over the Windows-based machines, but a premium I find that is justified. It's hard to explain. Once you've turned the notebook on and used it, you just feel as though the premium was worth it."
