Don’t get me wrong though, for the money it’s been the best laptop yet screen and performance wise compared to the DELL and IBM laptops I also use. With hindsight for my photography I should have gone for something designed to take a bit more punishment and regular use.
The reassembled beast is thankfully still running fine at the moment, so another full backup can be taken just in case. Time to look into the internal construction of a Macbook Pro.
If you’ve had a Macbook Pro for over a year and carry it everywhere with you I’d be very interested to know how well it’s coped with the daily use.
