Good computer but does not work well with other computers progra

JoanneZK, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Our Apple computer is OK except when you have to use programs that originate on non-Apple computers.  I get and have to send data from my work via my computer.  It was impossible to get it to work on the Apple so I had to buy another computer.  I also found that many of the e-mails I got from friends would not open.  This is not a good computer to buy unless you are into graphics.

Faulty

  • Excerpt: It looks slick but boy when it goes out, it goes out, and just as the warranty expires! Come month 13 my Mac croaked in a big way. I got some weirdo checkered screen, took it to Apple and was told BAD LOGIC BOARD. Well that pretty much costs the same as a new Mac! Guess I should have bought the extended warranty! Now it's just a big ol paperweight on my desk.

good computer with a scratch on the screen.

  • Summary: I'm very unhappy that there was a large scratch on the screen that the seller did not mention. Otherwise the computer has preformed very well and I've had no other problems. This model has a bad reputation for motherboard problems but so far (about a month) it has worked well.

Computer doesn't exactly runs great!

whodat1961, Ebay
18 November 2009
  • Summary: From the description, which stated this computer "runs great" , I thought it actually would. Upon receiving it, I soon discovered that the CPU fan starts running too loud within minutes and the whole computer shuts down after overheating. Will buy any future computer and/or related equipment from a reputable local dealer.

Ein Mac, der erst warmlaufen muss

joschka7, eBay.de
16 September 2009
  • Summary: An sich ein Mac mit allen positiven Apple-Eigenschaften, wenn er denn läuft.... Leider hat auch dieser G5 mit einer Bustaktung von 600 MHz, der unter OS "Leopard" betrieben wird, eine Macke und meldet beim Start immer einen fatalen Fehler, der zu einem "Freeze" führt und einen Neustart verlangt. Das nervt, zumal ein umgehender Neustarten meistens wieder zu einem Freeze führt. Vieles probiert - nichts gebracht. Inzwischen ist die Lösung gefunden: Geduld!
