Fantastic you will never want to go back. I have the version with solid state hard drive. Apart from that the same machine. I have had pcs for years, the best being hp which were extremely reliable but all suffered the same windows fault they just get slower & slower, to the point of extreme frustration. I was with a colleague in lagos nigeria working with my hp on wifi in an expat bar. My counterpart had a macbook pro. By the time i had logged in loaded up & finally ready to go he had completed all his e mails, closed the screen down, and ordered another round of drinks. Astonishing, but operating side by side you cannot deny it. When my old hp pc finally gave out i went to macbook pro. The speed is fantastic, right off the starting block.
I’ve only had it 2 weeks and i can’t imagine my life with windows again. Infact, just going back on a standard windows laptop for a brief moment and i realize why there is such a huge gulf in prices. Windows is good but mac is premium. Every small little touch, like the cool touch pad (which id just one button essentially), the feel, the speed, the reduced risk of viruses. Didn’t get it from amazon though, great price but couldn’t wait ‘between 1-3 months’ dixons delivered same price in three days :).

Goodbye windows the iconic macbook is the future. I pondered for weeks before purchasing the macbook pro; two visits to an apple store to test drive the various models and a lot of consideration about the purchase price. Could i justify such an amount of money on a laptop whose spec could be beaten by many windows7 os laptops at half the price of the macbook ?. My problem was i was already a mac os convertee; i’d had a few months use on the older (white) macbook and didn’t want to go back to windows and so my decision was made. Amazon were able to provide the 15′ i5 for £220 less than apple and so i ordered. As expected, the macbook arrives fabulously packaged and the treat of setting it up as yours is incredibly easily – even the wifi is up and running with 5 minutes of switching the machine on for the first time. It isn’t noticeably lighter than any other laptop, but it is sleeker and the illuminated keyboard is almost crystal-like it it’s appearance. Screen and keyboard brightness are easily controlled via the f keys. Apple have packed a decent set of stereo speakers into the aluminium unibody and there is generous space on either side of the touchpad to rest your wrists whilst typing. The battery life is very good and a full charge will last between 5 – 7 hours dependant on use.
This laptop is for me one of the best, i know that its from the mid 2010 version. But i have been looking forward to having an apple computer for a number of years. The service from this supplier was good. The only thing the big sticker on the top.
Im very happy with the macbook pro i ordered, if i was being picky the packaging it came in was a little to be desired, but the product was great, thank you.

I now kind of despise windows because of just how easy it is to use and already comes pre-installed too so was ready to go in no time. Everything is very simple to work with and it didn#t take long to get the hang of the shortcuts and differenct click options. I love it, a great product that’s hard to beat.
