Apple MacBook Pro : Things to know before buying.

Excellent computer bought to replaced aged macbook pro. £171 less than apple price. Keyboard us style but not an issue as option to select uk keyboard layout is available through software (thereafter shift + 3 gives £ sign). Came with el capitan osx pre-installed not yosemite. Battery and computer 3 months old when received. Battery capacity 103% of stated capacity and showed 1 charge cycle. Force trackpad takes a bit of getting used to but is far superior to previous when you do.

I bought this laptop a couple of months ago and i am over the moon with how it preforms. I bought this from work so i don’t have the ‘verified purchase’ tag but to prove that i do in fact own this machine i’ve attached a picture of my retina macbook pro, along with a screen shot of the specs to show its the latest model (i also included a little bit of the review box to show i haven’t gotten it off the internet somewhere). Gaming:gaming is admittedly not what this laptop is made for, but it plays games such as league of legends, world of warcraft and empire total war well with the graphics turned down slightly. It comes with intel iris graphics which aren’t made for high end gaming, only really for pushing the display and those images. Like i said, it’ll play older/less demanding games (like everyone askes if it plays minecraft; it does. Really well) which is enough for most people. Video editing:if you’d also like to do some video editing on this (such as for a youtube channel or just for family videos) the macbook pro is also fantastic. Its not professional level stuff, though it could be in a pinch, but it can handle any resolution you throw at it in imovie (even 4k) and will export in a reasonable time. The fans will kick up when you do this but thats to be expected.

Love this, best purchase i have made for years, so fast to turn on and easy to set up. Here are the specifications for the Apple MacBook Pro:

Great computer, never used an apple macbook before but my son wanted one so we decided to invest (more than 3 times the prices of a standard computer). Very stylish, lightweight, slim and small. My son loves it but he still uses his hp laptop for his school work. Personally i think it is overpriced and is the same as the other 5 computers we have at home. I think as with the phone you are paying for the apple name and nothing more. He wanted it and to prevent a teenage tantrum we got it for his birthday, he says it is the best thing since sliced bread, but i do have my doubts and at this price i would usually not buy a laptop but as it was a special occasion. Each to their own, many consumer swear by it, but i would advise against purchasing unless it is for the brand name.

Great product, there is little more i can say to be honest.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Falsely described
  • A Really Nice Laptop
  • Fantastic product!

My verdict after three years of use: expensive, but worth every penny. . So, im writing this on the laptop i’m reviewing, a late 2013 version of the macbook pro which is currently backing up to an external drive. Prior to owning this wonderful piece of kit, i used toshiba, acer, sony laptops, of which the toshiba was the most robust and reliable. After my toshiba finally gave up the ghost i purchased a number (3) of the then fashionable ‘ultra books’ with solid state drives – each failed within in a month, at that stage i’d taken a number of days away from work and was highly frustrated, it was then i listened to my partner who said to try a mac. I swallowed the hefty price tag, and. . Best decision i’ve ever made with regards to a tech purchase. It’s reliable, quick and does everything i need perfectly (i’m a consultant). I’ve partitioned the drive and installed windows too – which was a doddle – and due to the quick startup time i can move between the two operating systems easily, and i’ve never suffered from a crash. The apple operating system is good – i find windows difficult to deal with now. The trackpad and screen on the macbook pro are brill, only minor downside is the speakers which are tinny but acceptable.

Bought this about 2 years ago for my daughter, who is a complete technophobe, to go to university with. It’s been excellent – typical apple product, it just works well and especially together with an ipad and iphone of course.

This macbook pro is just amazing. I am a big fan of macbook pro. For me macbook pro series is so far the best on the market money can buy. Long lasting battery, the best touch pad you can think of, great keyboard and the retina display it is just lovely.

If you can afford to, buy it. After years of windows machines, the operating system gets a bit of getting used to but it’s worth the effort. Everything gets done so much quicker. Apple computers are expensive compared to other makes and operating system but the build quality is excellent. Had a couple of issues during set up but apple support were great in getting these resolved. Two months in and very happy.

Best laptop you will ever buy. Best laptop you will ever buy. I had a sony vaio touchscreen before i purchased this and i keep asking myself “why didn’t i just buy a macbook in the first place?”. It’s elegant and sturdy and you will never have to buy a laptop for the rest of your days.

Around 6 hours of battery life which is decent. Very fast and responsive machine.

So far there is nothing not to like. It’s certainly fast enough for every day work. Since my last sony vaio had turned its toes up i waited many months before buying a new laptop, after all i’d got an airpad air 2. But, and there’s always a but, i needed a bigger hi res screen to take out to clients. One client had recently bought a mbpro 12″ retina with 256g ssd and 8g ram and it was the very hi-res display that persuaded me this was the way to go. So i ordered from amazon and it came very quickly. So far there is nothing not to like. It’s certainly fast enough for every day work and goes very well with my 27″ imac. So if you want a smallish laptop that has more flexibility than a tablet of some sort then this i suggest is the way to go.

Wish i had bought the 15in instead. Wish i had bought the 15in instead. This one is a bit on the small side for doing any serious work.
