I really have to say that the MacBook Pro impresses me to no end with the very short time it takes to turn on from being in standby. It’s pretty much instantaneous and that’s with a traditional 5400-rpm hard drive. I’ve never had a Windows PC that could even come close to that. The restart time is very good too.
One thing that takes some getting used to is how cold the aluminum frame can be when I first put it on my lap while wearing shorts. Plastic doesn’t get cold but metal sure does. Metal is better at dissipating heat though so in the end, it’s a good thing.
