I bought and 15" macbook pro with an intel i7 processor. My desktop pc was in desperate need of reinstalling the operating system. It was running very slow and I had trouble using pro audio software on it. However I didnt have space anywhere to back up the data. This and the fact that I needed something more portable prompted me to by and high spec macbook. However since buying 8 months agao its been wrought with problems. The screen keeps going blank and prompting me to reboot perhaps once every 3 weeks. Internet connection keeps dropping out (although pc's on same network not having this problem) and now, after I've returned it (again), The keyboard and trackpad keep losing response. Forcing me to reboot. I've sent it back 3 times now and the same errors keep happening. Its really good that they have the apple stores where you can take it rather then have send it away to be fixed but its still faulty. The apple price for this macbook is £1,838.00 I could have bought a top end windows laptop half that and not had these problems! I do think i have been very unlucky but think its only fair to share my experiences. I'm sure when its fixed I will be happy its just frustrating in the meantime.
