  • Summary: With System 10.9 (Mavericks), 4GB of ram will make this laptop a dog. As has often been true in the past, Apple packages the laptop in an under-rammed situation.

  • Summary: I bought this and I was lied to. Every time you unplug the laptop from the charger, after 5 minutes it shuts off. Very disappointed.

Is it worth the cost?

  • Excerpt: This laptop looked pretty good to me when I observed it in an apple store in a mall close to where I live, I even recommended it to a cousin of mine that was searching for something comfortable. However I was very dissapointed when I took it home. It scratched easily, the keyboard was extremely uncomfortable and it was just plain confusing to work with!The only thing beneficial that came out of it was the fact that it didnt get dirty very easily and it looked good.

Mac Book Pro not worth it.

AlissaKatherine, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I had a Mac Book Pro for about a year. While it did all the things I wanted it too for the most part, it would slow down and be annoying just like any other laptop. Sure, the flashy features like the multi-touch trackpad are nice, but not when that trackpad becomes unresponsive and the whole thing doesn't work. It's not very compatiable with outside Apple products. I have two other laptops and 4 other bluetooth devices and in total it only reacts to 2 of them.

  • Summary: I bought it from j and r, because I thought it would be perfect for me and invinicible. Since it has a 512mb graphic card and the fastest processor.Well i was wrong. Within less than a week, it lagged for a day then crashed on me(multiple times). Now, all I got is a black screen and a beeping sound, planning on returning the product.
  • Pros: Quality Display
  • Cons: Freezes Up, Slow

Not as reliable as cracked up to be

Desbyk, J&R

  • Summary: I love the mac for surfing the internet and I run Parallels with Windows XP. My Windows has been trouble free, probably because I mostly use the Mac side. The main issues I have had with the Macbook are hardware related. I have had to have it in to the shop three times and it currently needs to go in to have the CD drive Applecare, but the reason I spent so much on a Mac was because I was assured the parts are better.
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
  • Cons: Hardware issues, Too Hot

GREAT MACHINE but WHITE SPOTS !

  • Summary: This one was great until I found a few white spots on the screen 16 months after purchase. Screen replacement is $1200 in my part of the world so I'm really angry about this fact.
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Great Software, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quiet
  • Cons: WHITE SPOTS

  • Summary: I have never really been an apple fan and took the plunge to see how good they are. For the first few days this laptop was amazing and greet its sleek metal body and click touch pad where just incredible but then i started using for business use. It was absolutely rubbish it couldn't open any .exe files it wouldn't run any programs that i needed and was a general piece of crap.
  • Pros: portable slim durable and strong
  • Cons: expensive useless and won't run any programs you need
