Apple's 17-inch MacBook Pro Is Built for Comfort, Speed

With Apple's 17-inch MacBook Pro, enterprise IT has a new choice in the thin and light notebook category. The system offers unparalleled battery life, and its long-lasting charge may lessen the worry mobile users have about built-in batteries. The chassis is well-crafted and should stand up to mobile use, although the all-aluminum body will quickly pick up visible dings. The face of the 17-inch MacBook Pro provides plenty of space for the large trackpad and ample wrist-rest room. The full-sized keyboard is easy to access and provides good typing action.
