Everybody and the dog is knocking the 13 inch MacBook 'Slow', but is it really that slow? Are there any 13in MacBook Pro owners who think "damn, I wish I had some more power!". I don't...I find it to be faster than the brand new 'professional' desktops that my father's company send to clients and it blows away the laptop he has which is a year newer than mine (same price point and size wise). After putting a SSD in, it is almost too fast for me to handle (like a G6). This doesn't make the laptop seem all that slow at all! Actually it beats out others in its class in numerous categories Oh but wait! That was the base model for 2009!!! Here is 2010... I want you to note that it holds its own with models using the i3 and i5 processors and in some categories, was faster. (The Sony Vaio S is a Core i5 @ 2.26GHz; the ASUS is i3 @ 2.26GHz). Compared to laptops in its class, the 13 inch MBP is not slow nor outdated. If it was, then it would not get award after award over other laptops using 'newer' technology. If you are thinking about buying a 13 but but you are debating the 13 MBP's capability, buy it as capability is something it has plenty of.
