Great Product , Satisfactory Service

2013-05-01
By Joe

Product was exactly what I ordered, no problems there.

Had some issues with ordering it though. My first order got "lost" in the system. So I had to cancel that order and place another one. Took two days to ship out. Overall pretty satisfied.

Best MBP I've ever owned

2013-04-13
By Dan S

This is my third Macbook laptop. The first one was the 2008 15" MBP before unibody, then 2010 15" MBP unibody, and now this 13" Retina. With the first two, I've always used Bootcamp to run Window XP / Windows 7 applications I need for work (ERP consultant) since I didn't want to compromise speed and power using VMware and/or Parallels. However, with this Retina and Flash Drive (512GB), I can have the BEST of both worlds in a nice neat little and 2 lbs lighter package with an unbelievable gorgeous retina display!!! The high resolution Retina makes up for the smaller screen so I'm actually able to pack as much if not more window panes on this screen than my 15" and the print/graphics is crisp and bright. The solid state drive provides the speed I need to run Parallels / Windows 7 and keep this running most of the time, so that I can work, VPN into my client system, run Windows specific applications I need for my business, while still able to enjoy my Mac OS applications and operating system all at the same time. I can have full screen Windows 7 when needed, or have my Windows app co-exist within the Mac OS system (Coherance mode). Either way, the transitions run smoothly and effortless! The i7 processor helps a great deal. This is without a doubt the way I've always envisioned having and running a Mac. My first two MBP's were awesome machines, but did not have the power, and drive speed to really do what I want it to do. This Retina i7 13" does EVERYTHING I need it to do professionally and personally speaking. The bonus is my computer bag is 2 lbs lighter, and I can actually use my laptop while on long flights. Currently, I run the following in addition to the applications delivered:
Parallels 8
MS Office 2011 for Mac (Excel / Word / Powerpoint)
MS Office 2010 for Windows 7 (Excel / Word / Powerpoint)
MS Projects 2010
MS Vision 2010
MS Windows 7 Pro
VMware
VPN client
TeamViewer
GotoMeeting
Wunderlist 2
Evernote
TurboTax
Quicken
Spotify

Absolutely in love with this machine!!! Now I'm just waiting for the Macbook Air to go Retina and 16gb RAM and then I'll have an excuse to upgrade yet again! :)

Um... YEP!!!

2013-04-11
By Rick

Slim, light and the retina display is gorgeous. And, yes, this laptop is VERY fast. For anyone who's never used a computer with a SSD (flash storage), I highly recommend it. Once I pick up an external optical drive (which I prefer, as an internal will eventually suffer breakdown, anyway) and a backup drive, I'll be set. Very happy with my new Mac!

Great Buy

2013-04-11
By Sharon W. Scott

This notebook is so fast and light that I cannot believe I didn't buy it sooner. The screen is large and clear and I can move it around with ease at it is light as a feather. The battery life is long and the performance never disappoints. Kudos to Apple for this gem.

Pretty close to the perfect laptop

2013-07-07
By YT

This is a pretty great computer, and definitely a great value from this store. Even with apple’s back to school sale, the price here is much cheaper (especially if you factor in no sales tax for many shoppers in many states).

I’m pretty satisfied with the computer. The SSD makes the computer super fast, 8 gb or ram is plenty. And of course, the display is definitely the best in the market right now. The 13 inch model is also very portable, making it desirable for people who are on the go. Battery life is decent, though i7 will draw a little more power than i5. Overall design of this computer is elegant, very apple like. It doesn’t make a lot of fan noise, but it occasionally gets hot if you have like 5 apps open with the music playing. This is not a major issue though.

The only real complaint that I have about this computer is that it sometimes stutters on certain websites like the verge and Facebook. This isn’t really apple’s fault because these sites weren’t designed in the best way, and you’ll notice stuffer on these sites on other computers as well. However, if you zoom in on a page on any website and scroll a bit faster, you’ll definitely notice the lag. I guess I was hoping that an $1800 computer wouldn’t have this problem. That’s really the only reason I gave it a 4 star rather than a 5.

Overall, I’d recommend it to people who care about their eyes and travel a bit but still would like to have a powerful computer. But if you are looking for gaming, this is not the computer for you.

Great product and I am enjoying it every day! Very fast and so far not that difficult to use coming from a lifelong Windows user.
