“Fast and flexible”

Written on: 29/11/2013 by GrumB (7 reviews written)

I have been using Windows since it was invented, and it was a big decision to change. I went for about the top of the range MBP, and I have only had it for 3 days. The ordering and delivery process (from the Apple Store) could not really have been better. It arrived here early in the quoted delivery slot, brought by UPS. The appearance and packaging is as slick as you would expect. I'm only scratching at the surface of the capability of this machine, which is light years faster than my old… Read Full Review

This is a PS to my own review.
My scanners don't work with this new MBP. I don't think I am alone with this problem, which appears to be associated with the new OS (Mavericks). So, my scanners are quite old and I might well need to buy a new one. But read on.
On the Apple Store's Q&As the information appears to be that, even if I were to buy a brand new Epson scanner from them, it wouldn't work with the computer that they have just sold me. I asked Apple for an official comment and they declined. Their customer adviser gave me gibberish about how it wouldn't work because Epson have released new drivers.....But it is clearly nothing to do with the scanner manufacturers at all. It appears that the clever people at Apple think it is a good idea that I should have to revert to my old computer for scanning. If I sold a car, and lets suppose that something like the aircon was not functional, I'd tell buyers first.

“Best Laptop”

This is the second Mac I buy, I used to have a white MacBook and I now upgraded to a MacBook pro, I absolutely love this machine, I never had one single problem with it, so simple and intuitive to use, always fast and reliable, never crashes and never slows down, installing and uninstalling programs is so easy, and the overall look is just so slick. I really recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

“Apple Mac ? or just a rain coat?”

Written on: 26/04/2013

I went to a work shop run by a University in Manchester and a few of the students had Apple Macs and I must admit they looked pretty good, my old windows laptop was OK, but kept crashing and are prone to viruses so i made my mind up that I indeed would take the plunge, the people in the apple store were amazing and very helpful indeed, but shop around as there are deals on the web to get them a little cheaper, but ultimately you pay for what you get, im still learning to get to grips with the… Read Full Review

“Love my Mac book”

Written on: 06/02/2013

I used to have PC only, I was even belonging to the people saying it's silly to pay more for a mac... Well I switched to Mac one year ago and I have to say there is not a single day I would regret this choice! Great design, easy interface, infinite possibilities, great customer care and guarantees... The Mac Book Pro is really a great working tool, it reacts fast and is 100% reliable! I never experienced any single trouble with this computer, and I would definitively buy Apple again!… Read Full Review

“"Really Great"”

Written on: 09/01/2013

By using this Laptop I got 99% satisfaction. The build quality of the new MacBook Pro is excellent, and the new Lion operating system is sophisticated and very stable. It is very fast to start windows and takes only 2 seconds to shut down. My only problem are the little things, finder can be irritating if you're an obsessive compulsive person, full screen windows have to manually manipulated. It's graphics supporting is really nice and so I am very comfortable to work on many high graphics… Read Full Review

i bought this laptop to see what all the fuss is about and from what i can see it is a good laptop being a computer geek i have tested it to its max and it still runs stable and fast when put under a lot of stress it is fast and starting up and takes about 2 seconds to shut down (WOW) the osx lion is a good operating system fast, the only down side to owning a mac is when you want to link it up to your home server, it dosent like talking to windows 7 so have had to take it off the network. also… Read Full Review

“Absolutely beautiful.”

Written on: 28/05/2012 by jeggs90sophie (3 reviews written)

I've just changed from a windows laptop/windows pc to a more expensive macbook pro 17" 2012. One of the best things I've ever done. No freezing, no crashing, no viruses, no blue-screens, no errors and a completely flawless operating system. It's fast, has an i7 processor and lots of added extras. Well worth the money. Don't listen to negative reviews - they either can't afford the apple product or they're obsessed with Windows. Once you get rid of the virus-riddled, slow Windows systems, and… Read Full Review

“Excellent, just not quite perfect”

Written on: 03/04/2012 by jackwea1 (2 reviews written)

It all depends on what you do with laptop to determine whether you buy mac or pc, I've used both since I were a youngun and can say my life has been easier since I went mac (you never go back). It also has that pulling power that all other laptops never to bother to emulate, if you're into looks that is. However macbook pros have the power to back it up. My only problem are the little things, finder can be irritating if you're an obsessive compulsive person, full screen windows have to manually… Read Full Review

This laptop is very reliable and easy to use. Aside from the wonderful features it has, it carries enough protection that can prevent your identity from hackers. The availability of the iClouds, allows me to store more files aside from my hardware, which I usually do not prefer in storing big files. Love it… Read Full Review

“"Beautiful bit of Kit"”

Written on: 27/10/2011 by DrHart (1 review written)

As a massive fan of apple products for quite some time i was not at all surprised to see them out do themselves in the quality of their products! The new operating system "Lion" is a pleasure to use and the optional 8GB of Ram really makes running high end software a breeze. Slightly on the pricey side but then they usually are but i am more than happy to pay extra as i know it will keep going for years as my old MacBook did. Battery Life seems to of improved but i reckon if they good squeeze… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/09/2011 by midwestdude (2 reviews written)

I was using crappy dell laptops for a long time. Even though i know apple laptops are the best i was hesitant because as a windows only computer user i thought learning a new operating system will be hard. But it was much easier and intuitive to learn the os. If you are still a windows user, ditch that old dell laptop and go buy a apple product!… Read Full Review

“A superb computer that sets thje benchmark for all...”

Written on: 11/08/2011 by Dunley (3 reviews written)

There is a saying that a Macintosh user cannot use a PC but a PC user can use a Macintosh. This is because that the Mac is a dream to use and really is 'plug and play'. The build quality of the new MacBook Pro is excellent, and the new Lion operating system is sophisticated and very stable. All the applications – like Adobe CS – loaded without problems and perform very well. And there is the legendary Macintosh reliability behind the ownership of this superb computer. Yes, it is expensive… Read Full Review

“Nice Hardware but the OS & Some Apps Take Time to Learn”

Written on: 02/08/2011 by pdb1981 (1 review written)

I bought this machine for my parter 3 months ago and she loves it The quality of the physical thing is far higher than most windows machines out there, it is a beautiful thing to look and feel. However the operating system really is not that intuitive at time when you have come from a windows environment. One example is that where you can alt + tab in windows and flick between every individual one. Where as on the Apple, you can only seem to flick between applications, not their seperate… Read Full Review

“A good bit of kit”

Written on: 07/07/2011 by alexnotara (7 reviews written)

Ive only had this machine a few months now but it exceeds my expectations in just about all areas - design, functionality and usability, storage, connections and processing speed. Battery life is rather limited if Im honest. And the audio sound is somewhat average - given the price tag a decent set of speakers should come as standard. Anyway, minor gripes. Its a great purchase… Read Full Review

“I required a decent laptop for my work and after...”

Written on: 03/04/2011 by wilsonjo (5 reviews written)

I required a decent laptop for my work and after looking around and doing quite a lot of research, I decided that, contrary to popular opinion, the price of the Apple offering wasn't so different from a similar specification of PC style laptop and as I already owned an Apple iMac, I bought one of the original unibody 15" MacBook Pro's.

I wish I'd bought the full compliment of RAM at the beginning as I run Windows XP as a virtual machine (because of one particular VPN application which only… Read Full Review
