Love this Mac, but wish it was more upgrade-friendly!

Summary: I love this computer! I use it for classes in college, photoshop side projects, playing some less-demanding games, and just browsing the web. The screen real estate is bigger in person. I love everything about it! There are a few things to consider when buying this laptop. One, it has very small font. I like it and it suits me well, but others may find it hard to read.
Summary: Very good device,just little heavy,but its work very well.Es lo que esperaba del producto,a pesar de tener algunos anos,trabaja en forma optima.Me parece bien el rendimiento de la bateria,esta en el rango de los laptos mas modernos.
Great laptop to use as a backup or when I don't want to sit at the desk

Summary: I am using this as a back up to my desk top which was my goal and it is perfect for that. Only thing I had to do was oil the fans but that is typical for this year of mac book, otherwise it has been perfect for what I needed.
Summary: The cons: The spec weight is 3 lbs heavier than its listed 6.6 lbs. Making it as heavy as my old HP laptop. The dvd/cd slot does not readily accept disc. My first attempt failed. Tried pushing the disc into the slot and it would bounce back out. After five minutes it finally accepted the disc. Seems to be OK now. We'll see. I would have rated "performance" a 5 except for this problem.
Summary: The Macbook is a very versatile computer. The screen is optimal for anything you'll need. With an OS:hardware lineup like Apple's, it's tough to beat. Only downside is that the 2009 models are a bit dated. Beware newer OS and software using any model aside from 2011 onward.
Summary: I can do many things without hassle. I can play games at the same time as surfing the web without any problem. But it is pretty heavy. I don't recommend this as a laptop to carry with you everyday to meetings or places.
