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. It has been a real problem trying to get it fixed. There a not that many apple service centers and getting any appointment takes several days.
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. I didn't test it much but those could be signs to look out for in a used product before you buy one.
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.
Summary: I'm really disappointed in the longevity of this MacBook Pro considering how much it cost. I expect a lot better out of a $1,200 laptop. Before this I used a few cheap PC laptops, and while they were never super fast they did always seem to work. I got tired of having to replace those PC laptops all the time along with the shoddy build quality so I thought a MacBook Pro would be the solution.
Pros: Looks good, feels well built. Screen looks nice (though I prefer matte finish). Hardware is pretty good, runs most things without a problem. Nice keyboard, nice trackpad. I honestly liked using this laptop, until...
Cons: ...things started breaking. Now I baby my electronics, I don't throw them in a bag or toss them on the table or whatever that causes wear on other people's laptops. I had no dents, no scratches on this laptop, I even had a screen protector on it and a keyboard cover. One complaint, the laptop always ran a bit warm. In fact, on occasion it would get very hot and I could hear the fan spool up and make noise. Come to find out, it's because I watch YouTube videos a lot as...
Summary: I bought this MacBook pro i5 version and had problem with it after just a one week. The device was really good and I was thrill and happy to have it but after just one week, after I put some apps specially Aperture it became lagging and colored cycle shows most of the time . The worst thing I had with this is the tracking pad , it stucked and stop responded just the week after. I had to return it back.
