Summary: Having used a PC my whole life, trying to use this laptop was a nightmare. If a Mac is all you've ever used, then it might be good for you. I spent too much time just trying to figure out the simplest of things. I finally gave up and gave it to my daughter. She loved it. I hated it. My one star rating goes to all Apple products, just because they can't seem to make things easy for those who want to change operating systems.
After 5 years today I realise that I was lied by amazon.

Summary: I love my mac but really sad I was lied to and payed more money for something I did not received. I ordered this mac, and today looking on the Graphics Coprocessor and saw I had a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256MB instead of the Graphics Coprocessor NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT 512MB, and don't know if I could trust amazon again in an important purchase. Feeling betrayed.
Summary: LAPTOP WORKS OK, BUT I WAS TOLD IN THE AD THAT IT WAS IN PRISTINE CONDITION. IT HAD BEEN DROPPED AT LEAST ONCE. BUCKLED METAL IN TWO PLACES. ONE CORNER WAS BADLY BENT. OTHER, CHEAPER LAPTOPS, SAME COMPANY, TOLD OF SCRATCHES AND DENTS, THIS LAPTOP HAD THOSE AND MUCH WORSE AND WAS CALLED PRISTINE. SHOULD HAVE SENT IT BACK, BUT HAD INVESTED TO MUCH MONEY GETTING DATA TRANSFERRED AND HAVING TO. GET I-LIFE LOADED SO I COULD TRANSFER PHOTOS.
Summary: These are wonderful computers. . . for a while. The batteries on these computers swell to become useless. Apple doesn't care one bit. Google "macbook pro swollen battery. Happens all the time. . . at $130 a pop. I'm up to $390 in batteries. Buyer beware.
Summary: The product was old and in poor condition when it finally arrived 3 weeks after it was ordered. I returned it - took 3 days to get there - and was charged $150 for returning it. The refund was made 3 days after the product was delivered to its origin. I feel utterly ripped off. The unit is worth, at best, $700. I expected a much newer unit in much Better shape for $1450.
Summary: these people sold me a totally defective machine, there was no operating system, hard drive and optical drive were defective after spending $800 dollars for a machine that was advertised to be in good working condition.
