Summary: When i bought this it said that the computer was in good conditions but it has just been freezing, crashing and shutting off every day multiple times, sometimes 5 times in 1 hour. I would give a one star but the shipping was really fast.
Excerpt: How sad when a good product goes bad. Greed and desire for control is destroying Mac computers. This computer came with Maverick and it is a worse OS than Windows. This computer WAS however well built and last of it's kind in being able to upgrade it, ie RAM and HDs without having to buy a new...
Summary: Had a problem with the hard drive right out of the box. Had to buy another one. Not real happy about it but did it anyway because a friend got a good price on a larger one.Other than that it is great.
Not a good experience for my wife who depends on the laptop for her work cc

Summary: I am currently still trying to get this laptop fixed by apple after owning it for only 2 months. The laptop will not fire up. Also turns out the computer is a 2012. The computer was worked on by the seller, so I am not sure if that was the cause of the problems or not.
Too short POS rusty cable. At least it kinda works.

Summary: Worked, sort of. The cable is not the same length as the original so the two central screws cannot be placed back, nor the bracket that holds the HDD. I had to hold things down with 3M Durapore. The cable was used and one of the holes where the screws should go is rusty.
Summary: I am a great fun of the MacBook (PRO) series from Apple and all work great for me. I bought a used one and its performance turned out to be below what I'd experienced before! Its colours ain't good and track pad is not as smooth in response.
Summary: They shipped me another brand called ArchMemory - never heard of this brand - I had ordered a Samsung. So am going to return it unopened. Going overseas in a few days and thought I'd upgrade the mem on my MacBook before I leave now everything is up in the air! Not a satisfied customer.
Not Hynix (authentic to Apple computers) as shown in seller description

Summary: The RAM I received was not authentic 'Hynix' RAM as described. It was no name generic RAM... not sure if that has any effect on anything but I purchased from this seller because they show the authentic RAM that comes with Apple computers.
