Now let’s discuss about MacBook PRO and why so many PC users are so tune to it, well probably of the slick and elegant design, MacBook were loved since it went out on the market and every year MacBook will release new model and cool design. Beside of it’s slickness and elegant design Apple has their own standard Operating System the MacOS, and probably the best Operating System out in the market. “Okay enough phrases on the design what matter’s most is the inside”. So let’s examine deep inside and what powers MacOS to operate. MacBook uses a 2.6GHz Intel Core™ 2 Duo known as one of the fastest CPU on the planet buddle with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT enough to play you favorite 3D games. MacBook is not design for gamers unlike it’s rival competitor. MacBook is ideal for Web Designer like me, Video Editing and other multimedia stuff, I would give MacBook 3 thumbs up for it.
So there you have it, You decide which is better than the other, If you ask me I like them both and I cannot decide with one is better because in term of used they satisfy me a lot.

When it comes to features, Opera has always been a trailblazer, leaving Firefox and IE to play catch-up. For example, today's Firefox 2 saves your session in the event of a crash, so you can pick up where you left off when you recover. And you can save a group of tabs as a bookmark -- a feature that's new in both Firefox 2 and IE7.
Guess what? Opera pioneered these features back in Version 7, which was released in 2003. Crash or prematurely close Opera and it's no loss, just relaunch for an instant encore. You can also save your browsing sessions under the File menu on the menu bar. And in Version 8, Opera added a trash can icon to the page bar where closed tabs and blocked pop-ups are saved, just in case you need them.
Opera continues to lead the way with every major upgrade. Version 9 introduced thumbnail previews, which make it easy to find your way among multiple tabs -- just hover your mouse over any tab to see a thumbnail image of the Web page. Also new is the content blocker. See something you don't like on a Web page -- an ad or an offensive image, for example? Just right-click and choose "Block content" to make it disappear. Opera remembers your choice, so the next time you visit that page the content remains blocked.
Opera 9 also incorporates Widgets, small Internet applets that run directly on your desktop and can be saved on your system for quick future access. There are games, newsfeeds, reference tools, image tools -- even a text editor. Mac OS X, Windows Vista and Yahoo have similar offerings, but the beauty of Opera's Widgets is that you can run them directly from the browser without having to have a Mac or get Vista or download Yahoo's Widget Engine.
