You don't have a COMPUTER unless you own a MAC

Summary: I love Apple computers after having suffered for years under PC and Windows. There are no crashes, glitches, freeze up and mad disturbed people staying up late at night conjuring up strange viruses to infect your computer. I am very pleased with my new 15 inch MacBook Pro. What more can I say? It's a Mac.
Summary: Five stars for the service alone. The machine came with Mavericks, which doesn't run properly with the NVIDIA graphics card. No problem they said, send it back to us and we'll get it going exactly the way you want it. I couldn't be happier with their service staff! I would definitely buy again.
Summary: A 17 inch MacBook Pro laptop for just a little over $800.00 is a real bargain. I used Migration Assistant to transfer everything from my desktop iMAC. Two of the items transferred, Microsoft Word and Sudoku Deluxe, did not work on the laptop and would have required me to purchase them again. So I substituted Open Office for Word and a free version of Sudoku for Sudoku Deluxe. Open Office is a free word processor that will do everything that Microsoft Word will do.
Summary: Excellent computer! We got this for my daughter for school and she lives it. It has fast speed, tons of applications, cd /DVD capiable. I would recommend this computer /book to anybody. Seller was great, got here within / early in the timeframe, which was nice not having to wait till the last day. No issues! Love it!
Although this is an older model it still works way better than my win8 laptop

Summary: I couldn't live without my macbook pro. Although this is an older model it still works way better than my win8 laptop. Such a clean interface and screen :) All i can recommend is to upgrade it to 8gb ram if you use many softwares at once. Currently i have outlook, skype, firefox, spotify, and photoshop open and doesn't do too bad with 4gb but would recommend going with 8gb for a better experience.
Summary: I still own this bought a while ago. Apple makes durable products so there's that and it is a great laptop unlike many windows products that can drive you insane. Don't worry about a learning curve switching to apple. There is really none unless you are so behind in technology that you need help. If so their customer support needs work. I never needed them so that's what you get with apple good product so you don't need their hopelessly pathetic geniuses or call center.
Summary: This is an amazing computer. i switched from a PC to this computer and i personally believe they are worth all the hype. it does everything you want a computer to do very quickly. it takes a bit of getting used to but it is not so hard once you get the hang of it. the seller is awesome too i bought mine from phonesurus. (sorry if i butchered the name). i was leaving town before the last date of the delivery and they sent it to me before i left.
Summary: This product has been so far so good. I purchased this for my husband to go with his D J equipment and he has had no complaints thus far. He talks about how much he loves it and he loves to learn new things on it.

Summary: I purchased this Mac several years ago and I was a bit worried about buying it online. But I saved some cash by finding a good sale. The computer met all it's expectations in the designer world and it's still running strong. I have only had to replace the battery once in 5 years of heavy use.
