Summary: Outstanding Apple laptop. Operating system is custom made to work with a perfectly matched and consistent set of hardware specifications. Well made, durable and not as heavy as other laptops. Plenty of power for students,home or professionals.
Summary: Great product, still up to today's standards. Great if you're looking to get a powerful Mac, but don't want to spend a fortune... Only cavet is the built in iSight may not work. It's a known issue with the model. But is easily fixed with a usb webcam.
I would rather have this old dinosaur than a plastic windoze 8 POS machine!

Summary: This is by far the best laptop I have owned. Even though it was made in 2008, this model of Macbook Pro is my favorite because it has the kind of graphics card that works well in Ubuntu and other Linux distributions (NVIDIA, NOT those yucky AMD Radeon or even worse: INTEL graphics that have hit or miss support in Linux), a multi touch GLASS trackpad that is smooth and not abrasive and cheap like in most PC laptops (and it's not a no-button trackpad, either!
All in all It's a well built machine that should satisfy most people&a

Summary: I bought a highly customized model with 16GB, an SSD and a matte screen so my reviews pertains to this configuration not the basic model. Since I always have it plugged it, I'm not using the battery... This was my first APPLE product ever... Still learning the keyboard and the GUI. Overall I like the responsiveness. It wakes up quite nicely and seems to be well built. Software runs without hiccups, but I haven't really loaded any heavy duty programs yet.
