Looks like Apple has again produce an excellent product, which it always does. The 13" MacBook Pro could definitely replace other netbooks. It has an excellent battery life of 8 hours usage, and has an unibody casing that not only looks stylish but is also thin and light. If price is not a concern, you can seriously think about getting a MacBook Pro 13" instead of a netbook!
