    A PC user, soon to switch
    Hey,
    I'm hoping to get a MacBook Pro this summer, but I would like to know somethings about the MacBook Pro before I finalize my decision.

    1. What's the best and worst thing about the MacBook Pro?
    2. How long does the battery usually last w/o the power cord plugged in?
    3. What is better, Glossy or Matte screen?

      Thanks

    1) Highly subjective, but IMO the worst thing is the lack of LED/status lights. 2) Best thing is the size and weight considering how powerful the machine is.

    2) About 3 hours on a new battery under light usage. Obviously this will vary widely depending on how you use it, how bright you have the screen set and how you have your energy usage options set.

    3) This one can only be answered by you. You need to go take a look and see which one you like better. Personally, I prefer the glossy, but many people find it incredibly annoying.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
