Excerpt: I use the machine for development and scientific computing. It is extremely fast for MPI programs using 8 processes - it nearly matches the New 6 core Mac Pro With 12 processes. Disk drive slow - will soon switch in SSD disk. OpenGL was initially very slow 10 f/s - one of the OpenGL options was causing the problem. Fix that then stuck at 60 f/s. Found Small program "disablebeamsync.c" that finally got openCL and openGL going full speed.
Pros: Compatible With Hpc Sites, Easy to Customize, Easy to Navigate, Versatile
Summary: I have been using this computer for over a month now and i have not had any problems with it so far. First impression i thought it had a little more cosmetic damage then i was expecting such as dents and overall fragilness. However, performance wise i have not had any issues and the computer continues to work great. I have downloaded the latest apple OS mavericks as well as the latest versions of iTunes without any problems.
Summary: I bought this computer for my foundation, computers4needy.org, it went to Doctors without Borders when I set up a network for finding the closest hospitals for blood and serum in Haiti, due to the severe cholera epidemic.
Summary: I ordered another Macbook Pro from this store because I wanted an updated machine which a-was in my budget and b-was equipped with a Superdrive because I like physical media. The delivery was timely and so far I am very satisfied with my new laptop.
