Arrived in good time, was very well packaged and works like a dream. This is my first apple computer and find it difficult going back to using the other. We paid a very good, comparative price too.
Best laptop available in the market. Speed wise and performance wise , its the best laptop available in the market. I dont have to worry about getting anti-virus with mac. Screen resolution is brilliant.

Amazing piece of hardware + nice price on amazon. I was a bit doubtful with the 8 gb as it won’t be expandable in the future. Instead, i’m using this macbook for almost everything and it’s blazing fast. It boots in seconds, not a single blimp during usage. The battery runs literally for hours, i often forget the last time i recharged it. But the real jewel is the display. The retina resolution is simply amazing. The only fear i had was regarding the glossy for which i had bad experience with other pc laptops. Instead it does not reflect any light, you can use it in any condition. It’s the best display i’ve ever used so far.
Beautiful machine, just be aware of what you’re buying. It does seem to be a bit of a gamble buying your macbook from a 3rd party seller on amazon as to whether you’re going to be getting a uk model or not. I couldn’t find any definitive answer. All i can do is add my experience- i ordered from seller focal solutions and my model was not a uk one, it was a hong kong import. I knew this was a risk buying it, but given the cost savings it was worth it to me- just be aware. As for the macbook itself, it’s my first mac and within a few minutes of playing around with it i realised what i’ve been missing all my life. Make the switch- you won’t regret it.
Best investment i have ever made. The best choice i have ever made. It is such a beautiful device and will be very useful at university as i am studying music so i needed this so i could run programs such as logic pro x and sibelius 7. When i was thinking of buying a macbook pro i was wondering, is the 13 inch too small?.The answer is defiantly not, the retina display makes it seem bigger than it is. In my opinion the 15 inch is allittle too big as you can’t fit it in bags as easily. It is a fantastic investment i know it seems like allot of money but once you get it you won’t regret. I would recommend getting a mac that is fulfilled by amazon because you can send it back easier.
Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display 13-inch Laptop (Intel Dual Core i5 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB HDD, Iris Graphics, OS X) – Silver – 2013 – ME864B/A – UK Keyboard : I must confess to being an apple convert since about 2007. I’d had several pcs and they’d all needed a fair bit of tinkering to keep them clean and running properly. But then i bought a new pc in late 2007 which was an absolute dog – in fact i retuned it. So i thought i’d give macs a go, and have never looked back. So this is my second macbook and it is a gem. It’s just like my ideal woman really: beautiful, sleek, quick, functional, hard working and reassuringly expensive, not to mention very unlikely to pick up any viruses ;-))seriously though, it is a lovely machine. I opted for the 8gb memory and 256gb ssd and it starts up very quick, and does not slow down with multiple applications. I must say though that i am not a ‘power user’, so do not use a lot of graphics intensive applications, maybe just some light photo editing. The screen is very clear as you’d expect with the retina display.
