Great but...

Bowen Parrish, Amazon
30 April 2014
  • Summary: This computer is excellent, but I was disappointed to open it up and see that the liquid damage indicators had been triggered. I couldn't see any sign of corrosion, but this still means I can't get any warranty on this computer. :/

Great Laptop but opt for AppleCare!

Richard B., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: Lessons: 1. Use Time Machine consistently... as in "often", and 2. Spring for AppleCare during your warranty period. The old Macbook Pros were troopers. I recently sold my mid-2011 with a core2duo, and never had a problem with it. I never needed to, but I could replace the harddrive.
  • Pros: Thin and fairly light considering the components it packs. Very fast, great for running multiple VMs for development, testing, etc. Display is beautiful, battery life is pretty good given the i7 output and screen resolution (I opted for the faster i7). Seems high quality.
  • Cons: Unreliable. Just got mine back from the Genius Bar today after dropping it off last week. The SSD died.... after FOUR WEEKS. The Apple Store didn't have a replacement, so I had to wait a few days before one was available.

OVERPRICED

  • Summary: The reason Apple rose to a prominent position was because they used to have great customer service. I bought a half a dozen of their high end computers over the years but now I am totally dissatisfied.

Battery life is subpar.

AmazonAddict "Cody", Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The screen is fantastic, and that's why you're looking at this product. However, be warned: the battery life doesn't last anything near the 7-hours claimed. This is an authentic Apple Macbook Pro with Retina Display, and runs at high speed. Maybe that's why the battery sucks.

Inner Seal is broken

MarvinMa, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: When I opened the pack, I found the inner machine seal(factory white seal) is broken, that means, someone opened it before. Fortunately, the battery cycle count is 1. I hope I could buy it only 2 days later, because other seller offered additional 50$ discount.

Good Comp If You Already Wear Glasses

N.Boyd "nnb", Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to love this machine. Its form factor is perfect, battery life long, and screen big enough for full-time use. However, I returned it after a week and a half because my eyestrain from this machine was absolutely unbearable.
