One of the best things about being a technology writer is getting to look at some of the newest and best tech toys on the market. Recently, my parents bought a June 2009 15” MacBook Pro (the one with the new SD slot) for my mother.
My mission (and I have no choice but to accept it…) is to install all the software, configure the Boot Camp partition (with XP Pro), etc. for her.
I am also fixing my father’s Fall 2008 15” MacBook Pro, and it’s in the process of whisking its way here from Houston. I’ll be writing a comparative review of it, my mom’s June 2009 MBP and my 13” Unibody MacBook.
The specs for mom’s MBP include:
- 3.06gHz Core2Duo Processor
- 4GB RAM
- 500GB HDD
- Non-removable battery
- 8x Superdrive
- Wireless N
Mom also got a free 8GB 2G iPod Touch as part of the really sweet deal. BUT without further ado, here’s the unboxing video. The Comparative Review will have detailed pics of all three Macs.
