Expensive, not intuitive, lacks strong integration and syncronization with Windows data
4 March 2015
Summary: Wish I had gone with one of the new Win based super thin laptops. This product was really expensive. I note used a Mac in 20 years. The ease of use advantage over Win has gone away, in fact, in many ways it is not intuitive. You have to grow up with it to like it.
Summary: I got this laptop in september for work and like it, the construction overall is sturdy and the keyboard feels great to type on. The main problem I have is that pixels keep going bad. It is not a huge deal because they only show up when viewing black/dark images but for the price it is a concern.
Summary: This new retina MacBook Pro is just perfect. But there is one problem in this one I Buy, the P key does not work properly, only by softly cross the finger above the key and it get wrongly pressed. This problem in the keyboard is very uncomfortable to properly type.
Summary: This may sound sacrilegious since I know many pray on the altar of Apple, but as a long-time PC user and recent convert to Mac computers I was very disappointed by my recently purchased Macbook Pro with Retina.
Summary: I bought a new MacBook Pro three weeks ago, and while working at a cafe noticed that the network speed was extremely slow. I did a ping to a major website and saw well over 40 % packet loss. I assumed there was something wrong with the cafe's internet connection.
Summary: I waited for months for Apple to launch their new MacBook Pro 13" with the new Haswell processor and amazing battery life. However, the computer randomly freezes since day 1. It becomers totally unresponsive and only way out is to power off and back on.
Summary: The big problem with this machine is the Bluetooth/Wifi issue. I had a Mac Book from 2008 which connected perfectly to my wi-fi from sleep mode. Not so with this machine (the 2nd one as i sent back the first!) in that it takes ages to connect to Wifi from sleep mode.
