Refurbished=Used

jm, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: This product - while technically as advertised - was sold as refurbished. The vendor however, has clearly used the product. While the use may be minimal - it is clearly used as the machine was set up to receive the vendor's e-mail, and months later still receives such e-mails. Since they set up the machine as the administrative user, I had to set up a second user, and am unable to delete that account without wiping the entire machine clean.

Mac Pro Check

Rich, rakuten

  • Summary: This laptop is a gem it's super fast, graphics are great, new Thunderbolt port but Apple again drops the ball when it comes to Blu-Ray, How many years will it take to come out with that? PC's have it already for the amount you pay for this it should everything under the sun. For Apple to really slam dunk this put a Blu-Ray data/player in the unit and standard SSD drives.

Too expensive

Blikker, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: This computer may be the dream for youngsters who will make use of all the fancy stuff for film and electronic music editing. I just want a machine for research in arcane subjects and some speech recognition. A replacement for my old Dell would have cost a third and done what I need better than this Mac. I switched because all the kids in the library have Macs! Just goes to show that one should not just follow the latest trend.

Newer Macbook Pro is better

  • Excerpt: I am not as impressed with this computer as i thought i would be. The trackpad & click part is harder compared to the newer Manbook's is very heard to deal with,the computer looks better than the Macbook's with the black keyboardI preffer the newer Macbook Pro 2.6 c ompared to this one. The price for this back when i bought was rediculous! Prices for the new ones are much better,i  reccommend buying a new Macbook,better.

Wonderful, but....

Badger O Stripey One, Amazon

  • Summary: By the time I'd paid for the extras it cost me well over £2k. I upgraded from a pretty fast tower pc which I had bought back in 2003 and was beginning to show its age. I suppose Apple stuff is pretty special which is why people pay the premium. But I was disappointed by its speed. It is no faster than what it replaced and I frequently get that stupid little beachball that stops everything in its tracks.

No merece la pena

skanskan, Ciao

  • Summary: Hola Desde hace poco tengo este modelo de MacBook Pro, de 15", 2.53Ghz y 4GB de RAM. Lo tengo porque me lo ha dejado la empresa. Podría haber pedido cualquier otro pero hubo entre mis compañeros una oleada de que todos querían un Mac, que si los Mac son la leche... Antes no tenía experiencia ni con estas maquinas ni con su S.O. Al mío le he instalado en otras particiones simultaneamente Ubuntu y Windows XP.
  • Pros: bonito, touchpad
  • Cons: muy caro, como cualquier otro medianamente bueno, reborde, agujeros

Ziemlich enttäuscht..

Uniquesone, Ciao
25 August 2009
  • Summary: Da ich bisher immer nur Windows vor der Nase hatte, dachte ich mir ich gönn mir mal einen Mac. Also habe ich mich für das MacBook Pro 17" entschieden. Der Preis Das erste was negativ ins Auge schlägt ist auf jedenfall der Preis. Mehr als 2000 € für eine vergleichsweise "schlechte" Hardware finde ich schon sehr happig, aber dafür ist das MacOS X kostenlos dabei. Die Installation Die Installation verläuft relativ Zügig und ist auch sehr einfach zu bedienen.
  • Pros: Optik, Handhabung, Hardware Kompatiblität
  • Cons: Unstabil, extrem Langsam .
