I feel I got a heck of a bargain considering all that came on this computer

  • Summary: my friend has a MacBook Pro 17 and I really liked the large screen. When I found this one, I thought at first it was a little over priced, but once I read about the upgrades that came with the MBP 17, I bought it. Plus a $100 coupon from eBay helped. This computer came with upgraded memory, a 1TB HDD, Parallels 7 with Windows 7, Office 2011, a full Adobe Suite, including Photoshop, and more software than I have room to mention.

  • Summary: Macs are great computers. I did purchase this laptop used, and it has given great service as well as being most functional. The 17" screen allows me to see what I am doing. It is truly a quality produce, perhaps a little pricey, but in the end yoou get what you pay for.

Brilliant workhorse production machine

Max, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been using this laptop for audio/video/photo production for years now. It has been a badass. I eventually swapped out the DVD drive for a second hard drive. Rather, I moved the built-in HDD to secondary and added an SSD as primary. Works very fast with a good Intel SATA controller. The screen is nice but it's not IPS so viewing angle affects color a lot, but I deal! At least it color corrects well. I can get very accurate colors even if I can't adjust everything.

Superb! Nothing Better!

  • Summary: Over and above expectations. For what it is and the original specs from 2007 it had 2gb ram and a 160gb hard drive. Yahirs Computers kept the ram but swapped the 160gb hard drive with a 750gb hard drive. I plan to update the ram soon, I am going to see if Yahirs has it available and would like to purchase it from him. I got my order quickly and it is exactly as was in the description.

I also wanted the 17 inch and waited until i could get a used one that was almost mint . I thought i found one and took a chance. I got very lucky this one is beyond anything i was expecting.

Another Macintosh Winner

Cutawayguy "Tom", Amazon

  • Summary: Seller got this thing out, as described, and I have been a Macintosh user since 1986, so this thing blows me away compared to my other now-vintage Mac 17-inch laptop. Very happy with this, as it has expanded my capability greatly, without all the delays and hesitation that i was having on my previous unit. Very happy with the way the seller handled everything. Would not hesitate to buy from him again.
