High quality product with high quality finish. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a solid laptop and who is sick of cheap plastic laptops.

Keyboard backlight Aluminium unibody Keys on the keyboard are really 'soft' and easy to press. Enough connections and ports for several accessories

DVD drive makes a strange noise when you put a DVD in and sounds like it is breaking the disc

To the previous reviewer who claims to have high tech knowledge, the warranty is through Newegg not Apple. It's not retail. My previous purchase was missing the power adapter, which Newegg wouldn't provide (not happy about that) but you get what you...

DO NOT BUY NO SUPPORT!!!

 

Computer only came with the laptop and charger. Didn't come with the recovery disk or the AC adapter (the extender).

None
