After fixing problems by Apple - device is now perfoming brilliantly
Bought this MacBook after participating in too many auctions - and to upgrade from my iMac desktop which is so slow compared to the MacBook. I didn't like the Trash emptying speed (snail pace) nor it not having iDVD installed (the ad for this device boasted the inclusion of the superdrive which I wanted). I did like the fact that the latest MAC OSX was installed; all the original box, cables & manuals were there; the protective covers & travel case are just great but the most important LIKE I have is that there is not one mark, scrstch or dent anywhere on the device so it looks brand new. After having the problems fixed & iDVD installed by Apple at Coffs Harbour the device is working fine & outperforms my iMac so I am happy with the purchase
Great product! Great value for money.
I bought this product as an upgrade from my older computer. I needed for my music production business. I like the everything about the computer except for the hard drive. I'm upgrading it soon. This macbook pro I thought was better than most as it is cheaper and has good specs.
i love this computer it is light weight and very fast and everything i needed and more it is so great for my daughters videos and me to to do all the work i need to for uni
Great computer, Handles most tasks with ease
We bought One of these Macbook "Pro"s back in may 2011. It was originally going to be used for seminars, and business trips, however due to is good processsing power it became a daily work horse for over 12 months. Being made from one solid peice of Aluminium they are super solid, so dont be afraid to travel with them. The Battery life is quite impressive. our record was at a seminar 2 months ago (yes over 12 months old now) and by dimming the screen, we got a full 9.5 hours use out of the computer. That was just running Word to type notes. The Screen produces a good quality image which is great for watching movies on as well as editing photos and videos. We purchased a mini display port adapter and connected a secondary monitor to it, which worked well. However the onboard graphics stuggled a bit with the extra load. The only Con that i have to this computer is its overheating. when ever we push it to the limits such as converting video footage, unless well ventilated it does overheat and the aluminium case get scorching hot. The other down, is althought labeled a "PRO" 4gb or ram, 2.4ghz I5 and 500gb hdd isn't the sort of stats that you are used to from apples power notebooks. Overall, a good laptop that holds its value well.Read full review
