13.3-inch Apple MacBook Pro MD314LL/A (Late 2011)

Posted

Pros: Perfect pratical size. Keyboard is great feel, touch pad works.

Cons: electrial unstable

I have had 13" Mac's since the first one. I'vd had the "White's" (W's)and the Aluminum(A's). I love the feel of the A's vs the W's from a production aspect of getting something done. The keyboard is much better and the look and feel is more appealing.  My partner and I had Whites in China for  2yrs. Overseas the big issue is environmental conditions. The W's held up, unlike the A's. Here's the flaw. The moisture creates mold. We opened a W's and to our amazement it was moss green and mold black but still working. The keyboards wore out from our poundings... enter the new A's. Within a year... it was a shut down do to mold build up inside. We had problems with the power adapter keeping the current going thru it.  Had two rounds for repair due to too much water. Dropping it in the urinal wasn't helpful..lol but that's a another China story. The main problem I have with this machine is the fact it's very very touchy to any kind of water due to it conductivity of metal vs plastic. Don't sneeze to hard or lights out!  Also, whatever speed they brag about with new models I can't tell the difference. 

 

All in, I'm still a fan!

13.3-inch Apple MacBook Pro MD314LL/A (Late 2011)
Description:

The Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro is a powerful notebook computer with an innovative aluminum unibody design. It is loaded with advanced power management features and an integrated battery, which work together to provide up to 7 hours of wireless web browsing. You may notice an unfamiliar logo next to one of the ports on the left side of the system. This is Thunderbolt, a high-speed interface that can move data at an amazing 10Gbps, which is double that of USB 3.0. The Thunderbolt port also doubles as a display output because it shares the same physical form factor as a Mini DisplayPort. You can daisy-chain up to six devices, so you'll be able to connect high-speed external storage and an external Apple LED Cinema display via the same port! The computer's 13.3" display features LED backlight technology and a glossy finish. Its 1280 x 800 native resolution gives you ample screen space to work with. You'll be able to output to an external display at up to 2560 x 1600 via Thunderbolt. Any Mini DisplayPort-compatible display will plug in without the need of an adapter. If you have a display with DVI, VGA or HDMI input, you'll only need to purchase an adapter cable (i.e., HDMI-to-Mini DisplayPort) for connection. FEATURES: Next-Generation Dual-Core Intel Processor - The 13.3" MacBook Pro now features a 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 processor. With 3.5GHz Turbo Boost support and 4MB of cache, this CPU allows the computer to perform up to twice as fast as the previous generation The Graphics Performance You Need, When You Need It - The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor is now included across the MacBook Pro lineup and handles the things you do every day. It encodes video quickly and makes HD video calls with FaceTime possible. It also decodes efficiently so you get long playback time for DVDs and iTunes movies Introducing Thunderbolt -</
