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: 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.
Summary: My personal MacBook Pro MB90LL/A has had and is still having issues since the day I received it. It freezes up during the start-up menu, and if not there, then when I'm surfing the web. Which is quite frustrating. I brought this MacBook because I've heard tons and tons of good news about it, but now I want to throw it out and switch to PC. Another issue I have with this MacBook Is the "Bad RAM" alerts.
Summary: I BOUGHT MY MAC BECAUSE A FRIEND ADVISED ME TO "GET ONE AND I'LL NEVER HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER LAPTOP FOR YEARS". THIS MAYBE TRUE ABOUT APPLE MAC BUT MACBOOKS FROM SOCALDEALS ARE FRAUD!!! FIRST THING HAPPEN THE DARN TRACKPAD WAS DEFAULT (IMAGE HAVING A TRUE GHOST IN UR MACHINE) SO IT MOVED AND MADE CHANGES TO MACBOOK WITHOUT MY INTENTIONS!!!!!
Summary: Amazing I ordered this same laptop this morning for a total price of about $200 including shipping.It said was in stock when I ordered and 1 left but amazingly i ordered it then they steal my product back saying its out of stock but only after I ordered this item.BUYERS BEWARE FALSE ADVERTISMENT!!!!!
Summary: Purchased this "refurbished" Macbook Pro that supposedly came with Microsoft Office 2008. Within two months, the software was removed from the hardrive from a remote location. I do not feel comfortable using this laptop knowing that it is being looked at and spied upon from another location. I have called the customer service several times and no response.
Summary: I was working with the gentleman that sold me this computer because it would not turn on after about 3-6 months of owning it. Franz was so incredibly helpful and bent over backwards just to get this computer up and running again! It was working for about 2 months from that point and is now no longer turning on again. I have tried contacting Franz twice now and have no gotten a response. After spending about $700 on a used computer this has become SO frustrating.
