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.

Fantastic laptop, great ui, love the small things that add up to make it great. Mine was refurbished and the seller were kind enough to include microsoft office suite and adobe photoshop and a bunch or other apps with it. Very handy considering i wasn’t very familiar with macos or its app store and how mediocre it isthe laptop works great with macos sierra, however, decided to turn off siri as it can cause a bit of slow down thats noticeable sometimes. However, everything works great. I almost literally can’t go back to using a windows laptop. One of the seriously underrated features of macos and hence, this laptop, is how it already knows you if you use, say an iphone.

I am so pleasedinitially i debated with myself the pros and cons of buying a pre-owned computer, but am so glad that i bought this one. It was such a good price, great value, and is proving to be an excellent machine.

For anyone considering a mac, do it. For those that say they’re all hype, once you’ve used apple products for a while, there’s no going backfor those that say they’re expensive, they’re not. Ok, they cost a lot of money but they’re not expensive. Take a good look at the build quality and any laptop of this quality would be this price. You can also expect years of great performance.

More computing power then i need. . But rather than replacing bill gates offerings every year or two, quality lasts. For web surfing, emails & the like, this is like taking the ferrari to do the weekly shop. I no longer have to know all the ms prompts, or metaphorically speaking lift the bonnet & do any tweaks via folders, sub folders, weirdly suffixed files or reams of settings. If £1500 is too much for this peace of mind then do not buy it, but do not criticise me for this reasoning, because the lack of frustration using this piece of it is worth every penny. As for reviewing this kit for what it was designed for (multi-media, heavy processing stuff), read the reviews by people experts in their chosen field. I did retrospectively add extra ram.

I’m writing this review as a reflection on switching to a macbook pro (and to an apple product for the first time) two years ago. If your a pc user considering switching and wondering if its worth it i hope you find this review useful. I had been using pc’s for the last twenty years. As a training architect, i would call myself an ‘advanced user’ who requires a powerful and well designed computer which can handle large programes and intensive long term use. My desktop had just crashed for its final time and i wanted a laptop which could do the same and i had many complaints and frustrations about windows – the fact that i had to replace my machine every 3 years (because they are so poorly built) and the operating system needed an entire overhaul every 6 months all were reasons to abandon pc and give mac a go. Its clear from the outset and apple do things differently. I’m sure that your looking at the price tag and thinking “i could buy three cheapo laptops for the basic 13″ macbook” but you will go through 3 laptops in the lifetime of a macbook easily – the quality of build is exceptional. Two years on and mine feels like its still new.No keys have fallen out of the keyboard, the screen is as crisp as the day i bought it and the operating system is still smooth and hasn’t ground to a halt.

This was bought for my dad and he absolutely loves it. He much prefers it to any other laptop he has had.

Unibody design = a big mistake. Don’t get me wrong, i love my new mac and hope never to part with it – which is just as well as the design flaws mean these models will be much harder to shift second hand. And it’s just as well the battery claims to have such a long lifespan, as it’s going to be a million times more difficult to change in comparison with the older macbook models. But the most annoying thing about this design – actually, it’s really the only annoying thing as the battery isn’t impossible to change yourself – is the edges. Gone are the nice, comfy, rounded edges so your wrists don’t have to suffer while you’re typing, scrolling, or clicking. Now the edges are rather irritating if you spend more than a few minutes at a time using the computer, i’m already hoping for a nice rubberised sort of cover to be released by someone, a cover that doesn’t use glue – don’t want to spoil the appearance of my beautiful new mac after all;) and the dip in the middle where you have to force the lid open (the magnet’s a bit too powerful,) has particularly nasty corners. All in all it’s a great computer that’s somewhat spoiled by a design that has not been tested out properly by human beings before being released. Surely you could have rounded off those edges and corners easily enough?.

Over priced for specs but that apple for you, the laptop looks and feel very nice and is super fast a great but, but you could get a dell laptop with the same specs for £800 but then again the macbook runs osx which is a much better os that windows and there are many more programs.

15 inches of appley goodness. Once you have experienced a mac there is no going back, i know they are much more expensive, but they just work. This from an apple virgin and a 25 year pc veteran. I bought this i7 macbook pro to supplement the imac i bought last year. And will mainly use out of the house and for presentations etc. I did spend a huge amount of time trying to decide if i wanted the 13 or 15 inch, but in the end it was the spec that won over. And for me the weight differential was not that noticeable. To be honest the spec is far in excess of what i need, but i got it at a good price and i thought i would future-proof my investment by buying more than i needed. Like most modern mac portables this is a unibody design and certainly feels as solid as a rock. What really surprised me is how slim it is.
