This Macbook Pro clone from Shenzhen Rahway, looks just like the 13.3-inch Macbook Pro I am currently typing on now. Even the construction features high tech (for Shanzhai) alloy and magnesium materials, giving the 20mm thick clone an overall weight of only 1.4 kg (3.08 pounds).
Actually, at 20mm thick this Macbook Pro clone is actually around 4mm thinner than a real Macbook Pro, but still thicker than a Macbook Air (or a MBA clone). However, to get this alloy, Apple embossed laptop so thin, they have had to omit the optical drive.
Also the specification is far from Pro, and more like ‘better than average ultrabook’. The CPU is a dual core 1.8ghz Intel Atom unit, there is 2GB RAM, 320GB hard drive, a built in web camera and a rather measly 38mm mAh battery.

Visuals are taken care of by a 13.3 inch back-lit screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768.
As mentioned above the chassis is made of alloy and even features a back-lit Apple logo on the lid!
Underneath things being to look drastically different from the neat Apple design, with this knock off Pro’s bottom been littered with vents and various doors with open up to reveal USB, HDMI our and headphone jack.
As with the real Macbook Pro this knock off comes in the standard bare alloy look, but also in this rather festive anodised red colour!
