thought to represent bad hard drive

Randall Weissbuch "rgw1776", Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: First unit was returned; cursor moved erratically; instructions from sender did not rectify; thought to represent bad hard drive. Second unit loaded pages very slowly. Ultimately determined to have a partitioned hard drive which left me with 18 MB of available memory. Sender sent me instructions which were impossible to carry out. I finally had to seek help from Apple; they accessed my computer remotely; took 4 hours to rectify problems.

A complete waste of time and money. The machine was just too old.

konaguy1, Ebay
1 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this MacBook Pro because my current MacBook Pro (18 months old) was in the shop and I needed to get some work done. Regretfully, this machine was old. Seven years old to be exact so, I wasn't able to open any of the jobs I needed to work on because the OS was too old, I didn't carefully read the description which said that the machine had OS5 Photoshop loaded on it. I assumed that it was the complete OS5 Suite. Sadly, it wasn't.

  • Summary: i sold it at a big discount. i'm an Apple shareholder but the non intuitive nature of the software was not helpful...so I'm back to PC now...better, but not perfect either also didn't like having to move the tiny curser on the tiny spot to click..

It gets too hot!

David Chan, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing gets really hot (around 80C) playing movies and games. Now, this is limited to pure work - not a good choice for all around computing.

Serious GPU/Logicboard Problem

Maciej Burniak, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: One week after receiving the unit I started to have serious problem with blue screen appearing on during starting process.I was forced to send the macbook to the professional service. If I have luck and reballing will solve the problem, then the costs will not kill me, but if it is a logic board problem and it needs to be replaced (over 700 bugs!!!) then the day I purchased this used macbook pro was not my happiest day...

Did not work

Donnovan Leaks, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: The computer appeared to be in good condition physically, the only problem was that it never turned on. I will say that the seller was pretty good with correspondence, I got my responses and refunds pretty quickly. But point blank, the MacBook didn't work.

  • 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.

love the ease of use, but 2 hard drive failures!

jenverk, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: I love the ease of use as with all apple products, however, have had 2 hard drive failures and a track pad that needed to be replaced. Would expect that for the price, it would be more reliable. I would not purchase a macbook pro again. Thank god for time machine back up!

Hard Disk Problem

BigTiger, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I thought that Apple had quality products. This is definitely an exception. After one day, the big question mark appeared on the screen when I tried to turn on the computer. Checked the Amazon website, I have to pay 15% penalty to return this kind of product after one day's use. You can never find a phone number to call Amazon to discuss the problem.
