Summary: The product I received was very very poor. I am not talking about cosmetically, because age and use happens in 7 years of course. But to have the charger spark and short out immediately, and the screen not even stay up, and the optical drive won't even take a disk let alone function with one.
Pros: This mac book is working faster than I expect with I have to spent 49 bucks for memory to add on. Only thing I don't like the condition of mac book when I got it. On website they say REFURBISHED. I have no problem with Refurbish but they sent me a used lease form some office. crashed every where....
Summary: Upon arrival, I upgraded to a 500GB SSD and 8GB RAM. This old beast runs OSX and Windows 7 like a champ and then some, and is easily the most versatile machine I've ever owned.
Pros: It may be on the older side, but it's still really fast and quite usable out of the box, especially if you upgrade to an SSD and upgrade the RAM. The laptop was in beautiful shape, the power adapter is the original stock power adapter and it looks and works great. It'll handle Mavericks, Yosemite...
Cons: There's not one complaint, con, or anything I can possibly think of. Well... it actually arrived with 10.10 Yosemite pre-installed, but downgrading to Mavericks was stupidly easy. Personal preference, really.
Summary: Amazing computer for it's age and price. Very much recommend running snow leopard (second latest it can handle) for its super speed and reliability, despite not being able to install the latest version of things.
nothing like the one I bought my daughter from microcenter store ...
