According to a New York Times article, Apple walked away with several of the top honors in a recent Consumer Reports review of laptop computers. MacBooks rated first in the 13-inch category, the 14-to 16-inch size, and the 17-inch list. And, if you don’t mind the price, the 15-inch MacBook Pro was rated overall with a score of 75 out of 100, ahead of a 64-rated Toshiba Satellite (the Pro costs $2,000, the Toshiba $700).
My daughter loves her 13-inch MacBook. And I have been happily working all day on my virtually trouble-free MacBook Pro. I have to admit, however, that I was feeling better before the New York Times pointed out the price difference between the MacBook Pro and the Toshiba Satellite.
