15-inch MacBook Pro/2.8GHz

This 15-inch MacBook Pro bests or matches the standard 17-inch configuration in many of our tests. It's a great choice, particularly if you're a switcher, a new buyer, or have one of Apple's older notebook models. If you already have a unibody MacBook Pro, though, you will already have most of the great features these new models have to offer.
