Updated. MacBook Pro Clone Review + Impressions.
We had talked about the Macbook Pro knockoff before, remember? The old glowing Dragonfly logo is finally upgraded to a glowing Apple logo. Based on the photos of the clone, it makes us think it runs Mac OS X, but is that true? Tell you later.
According to the specs list on Chinese online store, the machine comes with Windows 7, no words on Mac OS X. Therefore, we do not know if this machine is really capable to run Mac OS X.
Besides, the price of this machine is quite expensive in comparison to the other shanzhai netbooks. For 3100 yuan (about $466), it’s got a 14-inches 1376×768 LED backlit display in 16:9 ratio, powered by Intel Atom D510 1.66GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard drive (5400rpm), based on Nvidia ION-2 platform in which you get dual graphics, Intel GMA 3150 and ION 2. That’s cool! No doubt it can handle 1080p video playback.
Good to see that the manufacturer has put an Apple logo on the machine. Definitely looks better!
It includes three USB2.0 ports, built-in SD card reader, HDMI out, headphone jack, power plug, built-in 1.3MP camera, built-in AirPort Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n wireless network and 4200mAh battery.
The chiclet keyboard is nice, but with the Windows logo key, it feels weird. According to its specs list, the trackpad has multi-touch feature.
The entire machine with battery weighs 1.9 kg. It has 10 hours of standby juice.
P.S. It is the worst of all my test devices.
