Summary: I got this laptop at work, I did not have to buy it. My personal laptop is a T440s running Linux and I like that much more. (The T440s also has issues that needed newsgroup reading, but the end result is more pleasing and that machine is much more reasonably priced.
Pros: Great specs. Thin and light.
Cons: Screen is glossy and the reflection is distracting. Daytime use in office environment is the worst, home use where you can control the environment is best.
Summary: My 2 month old late 2013 15 Macbook Pro creaks when I rest my palms while typing and clicking the track pad. This is VERY ANNOYING, and makes the computer feel cheep and flimsy. I have owned over 6 Apple notebooks and this is by far the worst quality I have experienced. The Apple Store wants to replace the top case. Have experienced repairs before, I don't feel confident they can swap out the electronics and screen without causing more problems.

Summary: Let me preface my review by saying, I own this machine. I am not one to write a scathing review for an Apple product just because it's an Apple product. I have an iPhone 5, an iPad Mini with Retina Display and this laptop. You can check my other reviews and see that I say plenty of good things about Apple products and accessories. That being said, this laptop is not worth the asking price. No doubt, it boasts highest specs in the consumer laptop market at the moment.
Pros: so i reciever this computer working and had bought at an apple store. within a week the battery had died on me and i was no longer able to use it unplugged. when i tried returning it i had a hard time at the apple store returning it since they had been telling me that i was the cause the battery died and they wanted me to pay to get the laptop working again.
Summary: If you are purchasing an Apple computer for ease of use and a super user-friendly GUI, go ahead and push "BUY IT NOW". But if you are migrating over to Apple to take advantage of the apparent bargains to be found in the professional software arena (Music Production, Video Production, Graphic Arts, etc.) I am issuing a warning that Apple is lying to you.
