Apple MacBook Pro

 

I brought this product as a HS Graduation gift for my daughter last year. She absolutely loves it. The computer worked from the day we brought it. She has been using it now for almost a year and has not had any problems with it

There was a slight problem when we first got it. The recharger wasn't working. We had to pay $20 to get a new one

When life gives you lemons, you ship it back.

 

After doing more research on "recertified" items on Newegg, I learned that repairs are actually not performed on them. They don't give refunds, and will only replace it with a similar item. I thought. I had read every single condition of sale before I...

This MBP is the perfect size and portability

I have only had this item for a couple of days, but I am shipping it back. I did a lot of research on both the product and Newegg before buying it. ,y other option was getting a refurb from the online Apple store. I should have done that in the first...

Should have researched more

 

First, I should say this computer looks new and works fine so far. I bought it spur of the moment for a graduation present, so didn't do any research. It just seemed like a good price for a Macbook pro. I have purchased refurbs in the past, and they...

Condition looks new

No install disks, 3 year old version, box and power cord look a bit used

This computer has made me a mac convert!

 

So, in full disclosure, I have to say that this is the first mac that I have ever owned. Previously, I was an avid pc user, and didn't really understand the hype behind Apple computers. Recently, my husband found out that he was getting a new macbook...

Nice but pricey

 

Very nice well built machine. My first Mac (Many PC's). Decided to give Macs a try. I love the quick booting compared to PC's. Most preloaded apps are OK. I do miss some of my windows features but as I said I'm a rookie in the Mac world. Extremely...

NIce upgrade from the previous gen!

 

Fantastic battery life - easily hits 7 hours under normal usage. Graphics upgrade is a nice bump from the 9400m in the previous gen and is decent for gaming. The only shortcomings I can think of are the lack of a higher res screen option (1280x800 is a...
