Summary: "OS X COULD NOT BE INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER. FILE SYSTEM VERIFY OR REPAIR FAILED. QUIT THE INSTALLER TO RESTART YOUR COMPUTER AND TRY AGAIN." Computer permanently locked up. Option-On/Off, Command R-On/Off, nothing works. Computer is a dead stick. A $2,794 computer should last longer than 2 years. I will never buy Apple products again. I have an Airport Extreme with Time Capsule backup, but it does no good when the computer can'y even be force rebooted.
Summary: Such a pleasant shopping experience . I was able to customize my new Mac Book Pro with Retina Display exactly how I wanted. I saved a ton of money compared to competitors such as Best Buy and the actual Apple Retail Store, and I saved on taxes. I also received an incredible rebate and saved more money than I would have if purchasing through my employee discount program of the Apple store with the company I currently work for. Will definitely do business with again.
Perfect computer offering users with a really great experience if you don't use Cuda Acceleration.

Summary: Apple replaced the logic board, wiped the computer, did a fresh instal of the OS, and also a fresh instal of all the programs during the beginning of 2015. The GeekBench scores are the highest of any of the similar computers (at least on the day of my testing). But here's what's happening. The Macbook Pro Retina has a GeForce GT 650m with Cuda Technology and it can't handle editing in Premiere Pro with Cuda Acceleration turned on.
Summary: This is the fully-loaded late 2013 15" rMBP (which is the same as the 2014 version, other than slightly faster processors in the newer models), and it's great if you need all that power and SSD capacity. The closeout price is excellent; cheaper than what Apple is charging for a refurbished unit. The screen is spectacular, and the machine is very fast overall. It also seems more stable running Yosemite than my 3-year old MBA that it is replacing.
Summary: my first apple laptop and what can I say it's great. Fast, and no issues. Need to look up on how to clear the previous owners info off the computer. Got it for a fair price, but it did not have a DVD player like I had thought and the S/N look up site had...
Works better than most desktop stations and has portability to boot!

Summary: Works better than most desktop stations and has portability to boot! I like the fast processing for photo editing and additional ports for external monitor. Have been using the system for a couple of weeks without incident or complaints!
