Love it, use it every day, it’s amazing and exactly what i was asking for.
First time with a mac and i’m never going back. I bought this product a couple of weeks ago when my pc crashed. I had never bought a mac before and have always used pcs since i was young. Having the decision to switch to macs i would never go backthis product is so quick in its start-up and shut down. Installations are so much easier for most programs and there have been none of the software and operating system update blips which tend to plague windows operationg systems. The product is advertise din conjunction with windows for mac, but i don’t think it is at all necessary to buy windows for it. Windows products are expensive and there are plenty of mac-specific bits of software, like pages (word-processing) which are so cheap comparably. I first looked at getting microsoft word for mac, but i saved around £60 but opting for pages (available for download from the ‘app store. ‘ i heartily recommend throwing oneself into the whole mac experience. It will take maybe a day or two to get used but then it will seem so easy and so logical. Here are the specifications for the Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Laptop:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.

Incredible piece of technology. Like a lot of reviewers on here, i have used windows for years. My brother recently was given a macbook air as his company laptop and after myself trying it out for half an hour or so i was hooked – so i decided to buy the macbook pro. Whilst i think a lot of people who have used windows for a long time are reluctant to move to mac because they feel they have to relearn the operating system – it is really incredibly intuitive and would take no more that a couple of hours from scratch to get to grips with. That is the thing with apple – they design things to be intuitive. That is why my 4 year old niece can use an iphone. There are loads of very helpful tutorial videos on the apple website, and great apple forums were i found answers to everything i needed to know. So if you are in the market for a new laptop and hesitant about making the jump to mac then i will try to explain in simplest of terms on why you should buy a macbook. I found the most amazing thing on the macbook is the trackpad. Its a small recessed pad in front of the keyboard.
This was an amazing buy, the computer arrived on time and well packaged. Communication was great throughout the transaction. We didn’t know what to expect buying a refurbished macbook over the internet but we needn’t have worried. Looked brand new and felt like it too. We have had it a year now and it is used by our 16yr old constantly. Never has given us one bit of bother. Plus we had the luxury of having all of the office word, power point and excel installed. Highly recommend this company.

This laptop is very expensive. It’s now considered a fashion item. People may stereotype you for pulling it out whilst sitting alone in your local starbucks cafe. I knew all this before i bought it, but couldn’t resist seeing what all the ‘once you go mac, you don’t go back’ fuss was about. And i completely get itthe second you pull out this bit of kit, you instantly understand why you forked out almost a grand on it. Its slick, smooth, solid and really, really shinysimplicity in all of its glory. Turning on the macbook if effortless. Your mac will be asking you for a password to log in before your reluctant pc ‘s screen would even ignite into life. The screen display is pristine. The keyboard is perfectly spaced. The keys make that perfect key noise. The applications, which replace your windows programs, are simple in nature, but are grade a for functionality.
An apple product that is worth the money. Apple is one of those brands that tends to divide people into three camps: those that dislike it on principle, those that like the style but would never spend the money and those that have a full suite of apple products. For a while a sat in the middle camp, but decided to splash out and buy a macbook at the lower end of the cost scale, and i was really pleased i did. Aside from the fact that the macbook looks lovely as a piece of design, the functionality of it is extremely user friendly, with everything from adding printers and scanners, to removing applications and software, apple has made it extremely easy to use its products to the fullest. The clarity of the screen is amazing and the speed of its performance it really impressive. Osx is not without its frustrations sometimes (the fact that you can’t order folders separately to other files in a list springs to mind), but overall the enjoyment and ease of use is not diminished. A great product and would thoroughly recommend.
