just what I wanted


Booting from an external disk, I erased the internal hard disk and did a clean install of the latest MacOS El Capitan, then used Migration Assistant to copy in other stuff from my other Mac.

Everything works.

The case is kind of dinged up. Cosmetic, grade C.

Apple MacBook Pro


Nice that the Mac systems don't come with a bunch of bloated softwares that I'd and most people, would never use...and would just be a waste of hard drive space. It is a big bonus that I don't waste so much time fixing this or that as I do on Windows...

I have built several systems and am quite knowledgeable at both hardware and software. I have 5 PCs at home and 3 notebooks - PCs/Windows. Purchased a MacBook Pro this summer and was so pleasently suprised as to the performance and reliability of the...

Wish it had more USB ports - as mine has only 2!! Very proprietory and software/hardware - way too expensive. So do the research on what you are ultimately looking to do with this system

Great Laptop


I am a Microsoft System Administrator (3 Microsoft Certs) and I never thought I would buy a Mac, but recently for a number or reasons (including the fact that I could run windows) I bought a MAC...I love it! It has been a wonderful notebook, I would...

Built In Camera, OSX, Battery LIfe, Screen, .... Quadboot OSX, VISTA, XP, Ubuntu

Expensive for comparative hardware

You Get what you Pay for


I run Vista Pro on mine for almost a year and I had not ONE Crash or Lockup. The Only reason I use Vista is one of my software make it only for The PC. Throw away and get something that works. and that is a MacBook Pro. I also Just upgraded to a 24"...

I would Like to tell everyone you get what you pay for. If you were to get a Laptop that would run Vista the way it should then you would have one expensive Laptop and I had priced them out at Dell, Sony, HP, and Toshiba. I had a laptop the was just...

Non I had a few problems but they were something I did

Mac Labtop


Really good computer and worth the investment. Photo editing is really good with macs. It doesn't dissapoint with this computer. Best to use adobe photoshop. All around excellent computer.

Sleek look, quite, fast and amazing display. This labtop has all of the goodies. If you are into graphic design or scientific research like myself, you will love this computer. I have used macs before in a lab, but never owed one. I have to say that I...

The casing seems a little bit fragile, so you have to be really careful. The pricing is a bit on the high side, but you get what you pay for. It gets really hot, which is something that I don't like, but most laptops that I have owned have done that

Not so great


Our school rolls in this lab top with our tuition (it comes with a lot of software that we use on the cheap) so everyone of the 50 people in my case has one. After about 14 months only 3 of the people don't have dents and/or something else wrong with...

Mac OS has some really nice features, it's stylish

The aluminum case sure looks nice but it dents very easily. Very power battery life and reliability. Display problems, Apple pricing ; Somehow a dent ended up on the top of my laptop (I take good care of it) and it actually cracked my display. I went...

Simply Awesome!


Apple, I believe you finally have the right combination of hardware and O/S. It would be in your best interest to lower the prices dramatically on these OS X systems right now. Do it now and take advantage of that other garbage O/S out there. What is...

OS X is just plain awesome. I've had this thing for 8 months and still haven't gone through every feature on it. Put it this way. I'm always finding something new to play with or help out on something that might improve my efficiency. OS X coupled with...

Runs HOT... a little high priced

first mac ever


me and my mom got 2 laptops at the same time, her an HP pavillion running Vista, mine is this beauty. Her wifi already broke, her HDD is full from a glitch that saves back ups too much. its a mess! mine is still awesome. hardware wise, os wise, this...

Wow, this laptop blows every other laptop ive ever had out of the water, it runs fast, all of the features it has are amazing, and osx amazes me ; WIDGETS! COVERFLOW! GARAGE BAND! PHOTOBOOTH! (personal favorite) MAC SPEAK

takes a little getting used to (minimal) i have never ran a mac before and it took me just a few days to figure out most of the little ins and outs there are to a mac. things like using "command" instead of "ALT" was different. but its mostly just...

Three months, No Problems. Am I in love?


Don't get the upgrade to 4GB of RAM from Apple, buy it off of Newegg and save yourself a hundred dollars.

First, the support Apple gives you is amazing. This computer is nice. Of course everyone knows how sleek Apple computers are, but the look of a Pro verse the regular MacBook is a big step up. The computer is fast, encodes quickly. I run Firefox 3,...

Wish bootcamp ran side-by-side, but hardware wise... nada.

Don't judge a book by its cover


I can't imagine these things lasting too long, since under default fan settings, they idle at nearly 60 degrees C. If you're getting one, make sure you adjust the fan speeds or get software that does, or it'll live a short life.

Sleek design. If you live near an Apple Store, you're golden

First, the battery life is terrible. Within 1 month, I couldn't unplug it from the wall for more than 1 minute without it turning off (not even entering sleep mode). I went to the store and got the battery replaced, free of charge. A month after...
