Disappointed

  • Summary: I bought this laptop at the end of last year and it seems really fragile to me. I have been only using it on occasion after the ram failure.
  • Pros: It is a great looking laptop and very light with really nice high resolution screen
  • Cons: Design (ram failure within 6 months), battery life (only about 3 hours)

  • Excerpt: I expected little more I guess. Was little bit sad about the battery and got it checked. Apple expert said it will last only 2 hours if I run microsoft word or excel. All other features are good so far.
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
  • Cons: Short Battery Life

Great laptop, but defective from factory

  • Summary: During the first week of use, the macbook started locking down constantly until the where that I couldn't use it for over 20min. Then I took it to the Apple repair center in Brazil and they found out that the video card was not working and since it's integrated with the motherboard, they had to replace the entire motherboard. After repairing, it seems to be working nicely, therefore I feel like I have a refurbished laptop.

  • Summary: Just a warning to anyone thinking about buying this, it does not come with a CD drive which I was very shocked and upset about. Everyone who sees my laptop thinks I have the Air because of the lack of CD drive. Wish I had realized this before hand because I would probably have bought an older version.

  • Summary: Great Laptop, am kinda bummed however though that I spent $1700 on this. And a month after buying apple updates the laptop with a 5% processor speed boost standard, 8gb more ram "16total" all for the same damn price. Really bummed...

for something that has a flash/ssd for storage, it's quite slow.

  • Summary: I'm not thrilled about its performance. My hp envy touchscreen Win8 machine completely outperforms this in every single way. My desktop PC. However, this is only by "feel," and in no way comparable since I'm comparing different OS's with similar hardware. I have a 4 year old laptop with a first-gen intel SSD, and even that "feels" around as fast as this macbook pro.

  • Summary: Pissed I didn't realize this $1700 laptop no longer comes with a CD slot before I bought it. Definitely would've just went for a MacBook Air!

Better than Windows

  • Excerpt: This computer is a definite step up from a Windows machine, but Apple seems to have taken a step backward from my last Mac purchase. Migrating data between the old and new machines was a multi-day pain in the neck. I talked to a local Mac specialist and called tech support. Finally figured it out on my own. Oh, and I had to buy $50 in cables to connect the 2 computers since 1 was Thunderbolt and 1 had Firewire.
  • Pros: Fast, Lightweight, Quality Display, Quiet
  • Cons: No DVD drive

non-compatibility

  • Summary: My first macbook and I like it. However the port is not compatible with the projector we have. The PPP file I edited in the macbook cannot be read by the other brands of laptop. I am sharing this so you'll not sweat and waste time in front of your audience.
