My 15" macbook pro came with: power cord (US and Europe), a small amount of documentation, a plug to connect an ethernet cable, a plug to connect a VGA monitor, apple stickers, and a cloth that you can use to clean the screen (works great, keeps this beautiful screen perfectly clean (don't use other things like paper towels)).
How much of 128Gb storage is user available? Is 128gb enough or you feel lack of the storage? Jan 11, 2015
I can't say how much is user available, there's about 60gb on my drive right now. Wether it's enough for you is VERY user dependent. It's enough for me. I use mine for online college classes, entertainment and work and I have no issues with the 128gb drive. In my prior MacBook Pro I had a 250gb drive that went bad and I replaced it with a 100gb solid state drive and never ran out of room either. I only use iCloud drive for file storage. And I don't story any multimedia on the laptop. If I go on a trip I can move a few movies over to it but I delete them later. If you're gonna run Final Cut Pro because you do editing for a living, then I think that would be self evident that 128gb is not enough unless you run it all on an external drive. But for an average user that knows how to tidy up a drive every few months and get rid of files you don't need it's more than enough. If this is your only computer and don't have a desktop at home for storage of photos and person video and you're trying to keep all that on this one drive, it's not enough. BUT there's no reason you can't get a 2TB external drive and keep it at home for all your photos and video files. You then just need to be home to access all those files or carry the drive with you. But keeping all that kinda stuff on a laptop or portable HD is a bad idea unless you don't mind losing it all. Like I said, very user dependent.
Yes I got adapter in the box
When they say 8 gb of RAM, does it mean a single 8-gb RAM or two 4gb+4gb RAMs? Also is it possible to upgrade to 12gb of RAM (4b + 8gb) ? Oct 23, 2014
No. 8GB of RAM is on-board by default, but it can be upgraded to 16 GB at the time of purchase for an additional US$200. RAM cannot be upgraded later. If you want more than 8GB order the device with more than 8GB.
Increased i5 and i7 core processor speeds. Standard Ram was doubled, which is 8 gig standard to 16 gig. A major price reduction happened on all models up to the 500+ gig flash, which is now makes it a better deal than Macbook Air.
