Blinding fast; and love that 17" screen!
This is the last and most powerful 17" laptop Apple ever made. It has all of the advantages of a desktop machine and a laptop. I can hook up two 33" monitors while editing video in Final Cut or Avid Media Composer, without any strain on the system. Fast and powerful. With 16 GBs of memory, 10K rpm HD + 10 TB of external storage, It can handle anything - plus I can carry the whole setup anywhere, with my Sony 3-D video camera; I'm ready for any video opportunity. The newer Apple laptops are getting whimpier and smaller every year, while the iPads are getting bigger - I think they're going to meld into one lousy product; basically a glorified phone - so get a usable laptop while you can, before they disappear.

Excellent buy with extras
The owner of this took extra special care of it with plastic protectors all around. Upgraded hard drive and true SSD. This is one of the best machines that Apple ever built. It is my second one. The first one still runs fine but I wanted a backup and this is a screamer.

Wonderful MacBook, absolutley love it!!
After using a Window's PC for years, I finally made the switch to a Mac. I'm not happy with all the changes Microsoft has been doing to Windows so it prompted me to consider a Mac. I decided to go with a used model for my first one. I couldn't be happier. I wanted the 17inch because as a budding photographer I love the larger screen to edit photos. I am extremely happy with my purchase. I've had no problem with it whatsoever so far.

Love this Mac, but wish it was more upgrade-friendly!
I love this computer! I use it for classes in college, photoshop side projects, playing some less-demanding games, and just browsing the web. The screen real estate is bigger in person. I love everything about it! There are a few things to consider when buying this laptop. One, it has very small font. I like it and it suits me well, but others may find it hard to read. Two, I recently had a problem with the headphone jack displaying a red LED light which lets the user know that there is something wrong with the headphone port. This means I can't listen to anything through my speakers once the headphones are removed. I fixed this by putting a cut in half Q-Tip in the input and wiggled it around until it fixed. I normally hate using the jam it in method, but that is what it said on multiple reputable websites. It worked so I guess they were right. Three, I think the laptop could use a better graphics card or at least allow you to upgrade it yourself. This would allow a gamer such as myself to not have to play on low settings to get decent FPS on a game like DOTA. Overall, this is a great laptop and I would recommend to anyone. I get complements on it all the time! Read full review

Reasonable cost for high quality from Honest Seller! A+
A very high intergrity seller. The laptop I got as a second chance buyer and was glad to get the opportunity since it sounded great! Really happy! Like new, original box, cables, etc, with even some cables unopened! Fresh OSX 10.10 system installed, just like it came from the Apple store. I may find issues later and I hope I don't. So far, last month or so, very happy and would buy another machine from this seller.
