Overheats - not worth the money.

Erik, Amazon
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Pros: Looks pretty and I like the OS. Cons: Overheats with mild use. Have had various parts (LCD panel, power cord and logic board) melt from the heat this this puts out and I've even burned my left hand.

Mac is cool but ...

Robert Scherer, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: The computer arrived without paperwork or a packing slip, only a slip of paper with the tech help contact email. It arrived warped (rocks slightly on a flat surface), has minor scratches and needed complete operating software updates.

Apple is a great product

Lukeinashland, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: And in all fairness, I only had this laptop a short time. It was my first Apple laptop purchase. I've had an I-phone for years and am a huge fan. But when I received this laptop, it was much heavier than I expected it to be and It was very confusing to set up initially.

Atleast someone got smart and returned this

Philip M., Newegg
5 February 2013
  • Pros: that it was returned
  • Cons: you can get a better machine at half the price, else where. Not a hit on Newegg in the least. Its the price that Apple demands for a mid range laptop. Resolution is low for a 17" screen, small hdd, very little ram, and mid range CPU for $1200. You have have to be mental to pay this price for a ba...

Great design, poor hardware.

Careful Consumer, Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: I was very happy with my 17" Macbook Pro, it was fast and the operating system is a treat, but after several hardware failures I no longer consider it a worthwhile purchase. The keyboard has failed, the original battery split wide open at the seams, and the DVD drive stopped working for reading and...

It's not as good as it states

alex_riva, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: I spend almost $ 2500 in my mac book pro (17"). I also bought a time capsule. Now I've been using it for 13 months already. Before that I used to have a PC. Today I think some issues are good and some are not.

Apple is not that good

Mike, Amazon
12 December 2009
  • Summary: Great. It is fast for music programs. For Ableton it beats anything else. But unfortunately you have to out put up with other restrictive Apple policies. iTunes is a very poor quality music player and compresses your music so that 75% of the is lost file (quality is lost).
