Got my first Mac computer in like 14 years and my first Apple product in like 5. I am taking some classes to finish my bachelor's degree and the school made me buy a MacBook Pro with some software from them.
It's okay. The lack of a right click in the year 2011 seems like they're just being stubborn at this point (yes, I know you can ctrl-click or click with two fingers, but the the touchpad and mice are still not coming with two buttons).
The aluminum unibody construction is okay. People say it dents easily if dropped or banged and I can tell that by holding it (I have had some bulletproof HP and Sony laptops that I have dropped several times - would not do that with this). The chiclet keys are cool, but cut my typing speed down by 10-20 wpm. Mac OS X feels like your basic UNIX operating system. Looks great. The fact that the "close window, minimize window, etc" buttons are on the other side of the window are obnoxious.
I don't know that I'd say it's head and shoulders above Windows like the Mac faithful say. People have also told me that it's "OMG so faster than Win 7", but I keep my Win 7 installs clean of crapware and malware and it boots just a bit slower than the Mac. If I had an SSD for a boot drive, I bet it would be even.
Anyway, not really disappointed but not impressed, either. I paid like $1,500 for it (more, including the software I had to buy for it through the school). I could of gotten a sweet gaming laptop for that (though usually I don't buy "gaming laptops" because you're limited in upgrades). Or I could of built my new SB desktop rig with GeForce 500 graphics.
Anyway, those are just my disorganized thoughts off the top of my head.
