Great shopping experience. I did the free super saver shipping and still recovered it in 4 days. The laptop arrived as described. Very happy with my new computer.

Great computer despite the age. I bought an additional 500GB SSD to improve the speed and it runs amazing.

The computer works great and is really cool to dual boot with both Lion and Windows 7 - However, after just about a week, was doing research on the web and pressed down on the mouse pad and it cracked - no extra pressure, no gaming - just normal everyday use. Brought it to the local apple store and they say that it is not covered because of incidental use. Clearly this is a defect. Been an non apple guy forever, this was the first one I ever bought - not sure that I will ever buy one again.

Words can not describe this item. I would recommend it to the world if it was up to me. The best place to puchase items is from Amazon.

OK, I was sucked in by the Apple hype and purchased the Apple MacBook Pro to replace my Dell XPS. I couldn't wait to experience all the "elegant", "reliable"and "ease of use" features that Apple promotes. So guess what, it's mostly hype! First the computer "crashed" twice in the first four days requiring the hard drive to be erased and reloaded. Apple customer support is very good and ultimately find a solution, but prepare to spend some time with them. The first crash was caused when I tried to download from a 2-year old storage device that OS-X Lion does not support. So i get a computer generated message every 10 seconds telling me Lion doesn't support the program, and it wouldn't stop even after disconnecting. The second crash was caused, according to Apple, by virus protection I purchased from Apple that specifically said it was for OS-X Lion. Same computer generated message as before with same result, I couldn't stop the message and the hard drive had to be erased.

Transferring files from a PC to a Mac is not easy no matter what you have heard! Very time consuming and not at all intuitive. File management overall is more difficult than Windows so expect that. Maybe Apple users switching to Windows would have the opposite impression but I find the Windows file system much more logical and intuitive.

I am sticking with the MacBook and it is a well-built good looking computer. I suppose that, over time, I will become more familiar with the OS-X Lion operating system and be happy with the computer. Maybe. Now, a month after the purchase, I think I should had have stuck with a PC.

alright, I suffered a personal tragedy recently as my old macbook pro bit the dust. It was circa 2008 model, and i knew things were not going well for it, as it would check the hard drive all night long. I still don't know what caused that but it gave me an indication something was amiss. Fast forward a month or two and I have a dead macbook pro.

I took it to Apple, and the very helpful genius suggested that I would be better off getting something new. He advised me against the retina display as it was brand new and very expensive. (his words) So after perusing the new macbook air,vs the new macbook pro non retina, I started searching for reviews on Amazon. One thing led to another and I found this computer.

Let me just say the $250 off is a great way to attract people. If you are buying a mac, you know the price barrier is tough. I love Apple and think the world of their products, but at the same time, their barrier is real, and I know it. That being said, getting $250 off, plus free shipping and no tax, made this a sweeter deal.

I read reviews and took the plunge. i've had the computer a week, and I was able to upload my hard drive data from my old macbook to this one. It feels like my old macbook, for lack of a better description, "got pimped." basically it's still my old computer, but with shiny new features, the unibody design, the new screen, the amazing I7 processor. Its a great upgrade, but still familiar. Make sense?

Anyway, I opted for 16gb of ram, and bought some patriot memory. One stick was good, the other bad. I just got my replacements and am running rember to check their validity. A side note to this review is that if you have not upgraded your ram from stock 4 gb, and want to be quicker on the uptake i'd go up to 8gb of ram. 16 is way overboard unless you are running video editing, games, or multiple programs at once, like me. :)

Overall i can't say how happy I am with this purchase. With the ram and the noted cost savings I saved well over $400 from Apple on a comparable macbook pro. thanks amazon!

This is my third Apple computer, and once again I'm totally happy with my purchase. Apple definitely produces the best computers available today, and this is a beast machine, looks great, I use it for gaming and for music production, for those two tasks this MacBook Pro exceeded my expectations. Thank you Apple for making this incredible computer and thanks Amazon for selling it at a lower price. This computer is just perfect. Fast, powerful and the physical design is just a dream.
