Hidden defect not indicated

L. Ackelson, Amazon
11 January 2015
  • Summary: Everything looked great when I started using the computer. However, I found typing very difficult as the cursor moved and my next word was in the middle of a line of text three lines up or even in a different open document.

Love my Mac but not the damage to it!

A Colgate, Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Overall the machine has performed as it should. My only issues are that the battery has about 20% life left in it and even charged up it runs out really quick. The damage to the actual body of the Mac is substantial enough that had I seen pictures of it I would not have bought it.

Lucia Davies, Amazon

  • Summary: There was a slight hiccup on this order, as it was shipped originally with a defective battery. But they replaced it, and it's now able to hold a charge for about 2 hours. The trackpad is a bit worn out so trying to scroll through a document can sometimes be a bit of a challenge.

This is a very old version but... It's still Mac!

Purple Sage "The Maven", Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a very old version. I took it to the Apple Store for diagnostic testing and it was in good shape but it ran very, very HOT! I could not have it on my lap after 15 minutes. I also had problems finding accessories and case for it at Stores or Online.

Unsure just how good....

gretelspar, Ebay
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Well, it's hard to say definitively-the computer came w/ no battery, but started when plugged in. I preferred a new battery and all was well until the machine decided to not recognize the battery, not charging it. I scoured the web for hours trying to fix it.

MacBook Pro Review

eric gonzalez, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Great computer found at a great value. The only problem is that the battery dies very quickly once unplugged. Also, the CD drive is broken and I did not see the seller post anything informing me about this. It would have been nice to know this detail prior to buying.

Do NOT buy a used '07-08 MB Pro unless you're aware of the NVIDIA issue!!

itsmefred, Ebay
4 February 2013
  • Summary: Beware of 07-08 MBPs with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor!! Apple had so many problems with them that they replaced them (with the exact same processor which will also die, btw), free of charge, until December of 2012.
