I have been waiting for Apple to release a new MacBook Pro, since after using my iMac, my aluminum MacBook feels extremely slow. The small screen also makes it difficult to work with the iPad simulator since it can’t display a full 1024×768 iPad screen at 100% scale. As soon as Apple announced the new lineup today, I ordered a top of the line 15″ MacBook Pro to replace my MacBook.
Much as I love the 13″ form factor, lighter weight, and longer battery life, I decided to go for the 15″ for the faster processor and larger screen. The 8-9 hour battery life isn’t as good as the 13″ model’s 10 hour battery, but it’s better than my MacBook, which gives me less than 5 hours.
