Summary: Overall good. Minor issue with the sound port for headphones. Its temp fixable with a complicated series of tasks but then reverts. Still working on a permanent fix. Otherwise, computer works great.
Summary: I am a semi pro photographer so I wanted to upgrade to a Mac for photo editing. I couldn't be happier with this computer. It is fast, sleek and works like no other computer I've ever had. All of my pictures, music, notes and contacts are there with no trouble at all. The deal I received was outstanding. Computer was a couple of years old and a referb but it was loaded with great programming and has worked flawlessly.
Summary: i love this model of the aluminum MacBooks and got a good price for this one because of the slight cracks on the bezel of the screen, not the screen itself. i have a friend who has the same model and its no big deal and apparently a common break for this particular model
Summary: None of the programs were installed when i first got it, i had to do it myself, and update everything. The keyboard was dirty and their are a few bad scratches, and at least 2 big dings. The screen also had some weird food or something stuck on it, it definitley was not cleaned. The charger i got with it is a mini one, which is a pain in the ass. I didn't get a book or manuel on how to work it.
Summary: 5 yr old product, but perform as well as the more recent and higher price MacBook Pro. After RAM upgrade to 8GB, and HDD upgraded to 1TB Hybrid SSD, it will last for another 5 yr for every use. Great product and excellent value for the money.
