    Mac pro md102b/a reviews or advice please
    Well after some advice on here I have decided not to go for a mac book air but go for the pro instead
    I am on holiday till sun so hopefully I will go and get one on Sunday afternoon if nothing changes before hand

    I have looked online but have found no reviews on the machine
    Does anyone have any advice before I part with 1250 of my hard earned pennies
    I have never owned a mac so it will be a new experience for me
    Many thanks for taking the time to read or reply
    Darren

    One very obvious place to look for reviews is MacWorld.com!

    Sorry...I just reread your first post...where you mentioned never owning a Macintosh computer before. This would probably explain why you may not be familiar with the magazine "MacWorld".

    But if you did do some internet searching for a review for this computer (before posting)...links to MacWorld articles are usually very frequent.

    Good luck,

    - Nick
