For a used laptop, this was an awesome buy. Perfect for my needs.
I wanted a laptop, as opposed to a tablet, do I could access and alter documents more easily. I like the speed and power of the laptop. Apple just makes quality products, period. The fact that I was able to find this used model at such a reasonable price on Ebay was a bonus. I do wish the gesture pad was more like the Magic Trackpad, but it is an older model.
Small, fast and lightweight. Gets it done, and quickly!
Great laptop! It runs quickly and flawlessly, I've had a great experience overall with it. Very light to carry around, and can run both OS X and Windows(or linux if you so choose) so there's a variety of software out there for it. Now, the battery has failed which is a common problem for these, but when working correctly is has unparalleled battery life. I would recommend this to anyone of my family or friends.
Great computer! Great for it's value
I recently got fed up with my pc, and decided to switch to a mac. Although I would rather have a newer macbook, this fit my budget and was in excellent condition. It is surprisingly fast compared to my other laptop. My favorite thing about this computer is its reliability and how it doesn't kick me off what I'm doing to run updates like windows does. The only cons I have to say is the fans get loud when streaming videos sometimes (other than that it is silent) and I can't update to OS X Mountain lion. Which, isn't bad but it would be nice. If you're looking for a good reliable computer that will get you around for a reasonable price, this is it.
NEWER VERSION MAY BE EASIER TO OPERATE.
I USED I MAC LONG TIME AGO. AND LIKE TO HAVE ONE EVEN THOUGH IT IS OLDER MODLE. IT IS MORE COMPLICATED TO USE WHEN I HAVE BEEN USING NEWER VERSION OF DIFFERENT BRAND. I WOULD RATHER USE SOMETHING EASIER TO OPERATE. DO I HAVE T0 PAY TO LOG ON TO MAC USER? I STILL CAN NOT LOG ON WHEN IT ASK ME IF I WANT TO UPDATE THE COMPUTER. CAN NOT SCROLL UP IN LINES. (THE SCREEN IS MISSING A TOP LINE). NO MANU USER GUIDE. ( I GUESS I HAVE TO SIGN IN ON MAC USER TO FIND IT TO USE) CAN APPLE STORE HELP ME WITH EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW?
Dependable and useful
My husband has used this laptop for fun and research purposes (Google and Ancestry.com). He has been able to put his family history program on the device to use when we go to libraries or visiting cemeteries and this has been really helpful to him. So far the device has proven to be dependable and worth the $ we spent.
