    Reviews & Research

    CNET Editors' reviewExcellent

    • THE GOOD

      Updated CPUs and graphics without an updated price; LED-backlit display for better battery life; 802.11n support.

    • THE BAD

      Minimal configuration options; only 90 days of toll-free technical support; still no media card reader.

    • THE BOTTOM LINE

      "Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro gets a solid under-the-hood upgrade for better performance and longer battery life, allowing the MacBook Pro to put enough distance between itself and the lower-end MacBook to justify its higher price."

    Amazing Machine-a gamble to buy due 2 possible Integrated Video issue

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Apple is one of the worst companies in the world for pushing good ideas off the table to make them obsolete within 4 years. Steve Jobs came into apple in 2000 and ruined the best Laptop idea (pismo) by scrapping it. It remains one of the most user friendly products and still works fine 12 years later.
    I know this is about MacBookPro - I diverge but it's for purpose of point.

    It is a gamble roll of the dice to buy this machine due to a widespread problem with the Logic Board video card which fail on many many of these machines rendering them useless. There are fixes, work arounds and until last month Apple had a program to get it fixed for free. But that is no longer the case.

    You can't just pop out old video card it's integrated on Logic board.
    A truth you must be aware of.
    So since the exchange prorgram is done you have to find a lOgic board. the only ones I find are on ebay starting at $300 so they are gouging already for this part.

    I bought this for a great price from a Canadian seller (I'm in canada) and was very happy with the price and how fast it came and the condition it is in.
    It's the nicest machine I have owned and now that it is all set up I downgraded from Mountain Lion to 10.6.8 which is much more compatible on this machine. Mountain Lion, while it runs is not the best choice for this older machine.
    This is where I get back to planned Obsolesence of Apple corp. this should run BETTER with newest operation systems. Not the case though.
    So this would get perfect but I'm wary of a possible video problem in the future and am disgusted with Apple as they are not ethical in anyway.
    I'm handcuffed to the idea due to the tools I have to use to work and get paid.
    Not that I dislike the OS and the way the computer works just the Company.
    I run this mostly in closed shell mode to power 1920x1080 LCD screen (it's just as sharp as when I run it with Tower G5) and use VNC and screen sharing to control my 2 other computers for efficient workflow and there is no hiccups.
    There is an odd glitch with SPACES but it seems to come and go.
    ( you lose your keyboard control)
    So far so great. A recommended buy if you can get it under $400
    but make sure it has OS discs and maxed out with 4g ram before you pay that much oh and a good battery. But don't pay more than $500.

    15" MacBook Pro

    I had been looking for sometime,and finally decided to purchase a 15" Macbook pro and I'm glad I did. Great buy, great E-Bayer, I couldn't be happier. I've been using it about 3 weeks and I'm loving and learning more each time I use it. Works great with my router and other peripherals. I use Ubuntu OS on my desktop along with Windows XP Pro dual boot and all get along really well. I had heard how well Mac's preform and now I can testify to that fact. Seller explained laptop very well and shipped really quick. Thanks, for a really good experience on E-Bay.

    MacBook Pro

    It's a MAC, what is NOT to Love? Beats a PC any day. It is the right size for my Gun store. I leave it on the counter and when a customer has a question I can look it up fast, especially with this 2.4 Ghz processor and 4 Gb of Ram.

    Apple Macbook Pro-Amazing!

    I love this computer. I bought it for photography and it is amazing! The screen pixels, color, brightness, make my photos crisp and easy to edit. Not to mention iphoto is amazing. This computer is easy to use, light so you can take it any where, and has everything one would need on it. I paid $710 for this computer and it was factory refurbished, and came with ilife 09'. It was well worth the price compared to other macbook pros that were used and didn't come with anything. It only has 2 GB Ram, which is completely fine because it still runs extremely quick. I feel it is a great buy and would defiantly recommend it!
