Great laptop, but defective from factory
on August 11, 2014
During the first week of use, the macbook started locking down constantly until the where that I couldn't use it for over 20min. Then I took it to the Apple repair center in Brazil and they found out that the video card was not working and since it's integrated with the motherboard, they had to replace the entire motherboard. After repairing, it seems to be working nicely, therefore I feel like I have a refurbished laptop. And I bought a macbook just because I thought it would not happen with an Apple device.
Now talking about the laptop itself, it's awesome. It's fast, powerful, light, beautilful and the retina display is great. Texts are more legible than ever, images are displayed greatly. I would be definitely be in love with this macbook if it wasn't for the initial issue with the video card.
