5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Front Camera

The Apple Macbook Pro does not have a front camera, unlike most of the other laptops of this spec and age.

There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a front camera which you might want to consider including the Apple Macbook Air Early 2014[plb_2309587_price].

Only HDD Storage Media

The Macbook Pro has an HDD storage media which is better than most MacBooks that have been around for more than two years. Most notebook PCs of a comparable age and spec to it have an SSD storage media. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

An HDD storage media is in fact the worst storage medium across all portable PCs of a comparable age and type to the Macbook Pro.

An SSD storage media is the best storage medium across similar types of laptop.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Apple Macbook Pro Late 2011[plb_1786902_price] which has better reviews.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 2.6kg heavy portable PCs and we think the Apple Macbook Pro[plb_1773490_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
