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.

Heavier than anticipated

admbud, Ebay

  • 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.

Flexible. Optimal.

  • 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.

It is a top of the line product and a great value.

  • Summary: I bought this since Apple had stopped making the 17 in version. The screens on these are hard to beat and the picture quality is great. This is not a light weight pc, but the feel of the construction is unsurpassed with any of the others that I have tried. Personally I don't feel that there is a better laptop out there, and like I said I have tried a lot of them.

Great experience, awesome product

  • Summary: This was an awesome buy after my white macbook hd crashed. It came fully functional and loaded with all the software I needed for my design company. I love the upgraded operating system as well. The batteries needs to be replaced, but I knew that at the time of purchase. That is the only con, I have to keep it on the charger all day.

Arrived broken, but Apple has great customer service

Jamie McGuire, Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: Originally, I was very frustrated with this product. It was not working correctly, and I was panicked thinking I had paid over $2,000 for a computer that was either not user-friendly, or (previously being a PC user and non-techie) I just wasn't technically inclined enough to use a Mac. Thankfully, I took my new MacBook Pro to the Apple Store (who has incredible customer service, but is over an hour away) and they will repair it.
