  Wish I had bought one sooner,  2013-05-11
By calvininjax

I had been toying with the idea of getting a MacBook Pro for about 15 months and eventually took the plunge. I am glad I did and I also wish I had done it sooner. This particular version matches my 2006 Mac Pro in terms of speed. The anti-glare screen is every bit as good as the monitor I use with the Mac Pro.

I work a lot on processing photographs and I do not find the smaller screen to be that much of a disadvantage and the portablily of the MacBook Pro far outweighs the reduction in screen real estate.

I am going to be on the move for the next few months and the MacBook Pro means I can work just as if I was at my Mac Pro.

In my opinion this MacBook Pro is better than those equipped with retina displays. Just think how much a 1TB flash drive would cost. It also comes equipped with a firewire port so I can hook up my external hard drives.

It really does tick all the boxes for me. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and choice of model, which was attracti...

  Returning Mac user looking for maximum performance ,  2013-05-31
By Andrew Edens

Absolute best Macbook Pro available! Blazing fast processor, huge hard drive, perfect Anti-glare screen and great battery life. I chose the Anti-glare instead of the retina display because i do not game and i save over 700$ for same specs. Regular screened Macbook Pros can be upgraded to 16gbs of ram after initial purchase while the Retina ones must be purchased to this configuration. The I7 processor with 8m of cache is largest available in any manufacturing laptop sub 2,500$ easy choice! Best laptop you can buy for two grand easily nothing compares to Apple's quality in manufacturing and in store customer service!

  Packed with Features for the Price,  2013-06-02
By BruceW

My PC died in mid-May, and since my experiences with my last two PCs have been painful, I decided to make the move to a Mac.
I wanted a laptop that would replace my desktop, including a powerful processor, ample memory, and a reasonably large screen for a laptop.
The Apple store prices made me gulp, and I couldn’t find machines at other resellers that had all of my desired features.
Then I found this unit at this store. It has everything I wanted at a competitive price.
It’s very speedy at crunching numbers and loading webpages, runs very quietly, and was very easy to set up.
I’m finding the Mac experience very enjoyable, even with the inevitable frustrations that come with changing platforms, including learning new menus and discovering that I needed to buy Parallels, a Windows OS, and Quicken for Windows to keep managing my finances as well as I did on my PC.
The loaded OS was Lion, not Mountain Lion, which doesn’t bother me, and the unit can run quite hot on the u...

  Love it,  2013-06-14
By Bill

I was a die hard pc user, till I was convinced by a few co workers to look at an apple. This is my first Mac and I LOVE IT!!!!!!! Using this to edit photos and video is so much easier and more efficient that I can not believe that I waited years to do it.

  This is still the best laptop available in the market,  2013-07-16
By Victor

I write software and I love to do that on my Mac. I found it as part of a great deal at MacMall and went ahead and purchased it. It replaces a similarly configured Mac Mini with more power and portability. If you love Macs, this is the top of the line you can get today. And if you demand as much power as I do, you can upgrade it to 16GB RAM and add an SSD drive to it

  MacBook pro,  2013-07-20
By Roger

Computer was priced aggressively, so I got a really good deal. Delivery was fast and free. I was initially going to buy a refurbished computer from Apple but this was actually much less expensive. I would recommend checking out this store before buying refurbished from Apple

  Love the MacBook Pro (mid-2012),  2013-07-25
By John R

I have owned PowerBooks and earlier generations of MacBooks, but my youngest 17" was getting long in the tooth. The question was whether to purchase a brand new 15" Retina Display or the slightly older, but still available 15" mid-2012 model. I chose the latter. This was for functionality reasons. I wanted a built-in Superdrive. I understand that many users will find an external optical drive sufficient; but in my role as a music reviewer, Music Director and programmer of two music shows on a public radio station, I "Need" a built in player for reviewing and playback of music for on-air purposes. It's simply more cumbersome to lug around an external device. That said, I love the speed, quietness, screen resolution and the sufficiently large ATA drive. I have this MacBook tethered to a 27" Apple Cinema Display when at home, and I love that experience. Yes, it would be nice to have SSD drive, but for a system needing half to a full TB of HD space that is just too expensive at this...

  I am a happy convert from PC to Mac,  2013-08-07
By Scott

This is a great deal. The store staff was very helpful in my purchase. This MacBook Pro is super fast and easy to adapt to from my 20+ years of Widows use. It was a huge leap for me spending the money on this, but as one other customer put it: should have bought one sooner. I recently tried out a laptop for 3 weeks with Widows 8 and the operating system was beyond frustrating. I look forward to using this Macbook and learning about this OS. The screen is awesome on this. No glare whatsoever! It runs very cool and is virtually soundless. It feels very sturdy although I wouldn’t want to drop it without protection. The lighted keyboard is a huge bonus. I will shop again at this store.

  perfect laptop with perfect price!,  2013-08-16
By Camellia

I really love my new laptop! The macbook itself is perfect absolutely. However, the price is very affordable. I searched the same configuration on apple official website. Compared with the original price, I really got a great deal on this laptop. Highly recommend it!

  The best classic MacBook Pro you can buy (period),  2013-08-21
By Kristofer

I did not want to jump on the retina train just yet. I always felt the 2009-2012 MacBook Pros are the best MacBook Pro that still catered to professionals. The ability to update the memory and storage to my configurations after purchase is still import to some consumers. Sure the Retina is really nice to look at. But this machines Hi-Res Antiglare display is very, very good. Same DPI as the 13" MacBook Air. Once I received the machine in perfect condition from MacMall I increased the RAM from 8 to 16 GB and added a 512GB Samsung 840 Pro to the optical bay with removal of the optical drive since I have an external Bluray writer. The SSD in the Optical Bay is flawless once you run the EFI Update from November 2012. I am getting 500/500 read/write scores on Disk Speed Test from BlackMagicDesign in my setup. The 1TB original hard drive is still sitting in the same bay to take advantage of the fall sensors. I use the 1TB hard drive to catch all my video transfers from old Hi-8, VHS, Tivo, g...

  I got exactly what I wanted and saved money,  2013-09-15
By Michael

When my venerable 2006 17" MacBook Pro died (I’m pretty sure it was either the video card or the logic board) I wanted to replace it. I found the current MacBooks frustrating.

First, this is a working computer. I need an ethernet port (sorry, guys, but it still seems faster and more secure than WiFi.) Second, my old MacBook Pro was backed up with Time Machine through a Firewire 800 connection and I wanted Firewire.800. Third, I need an optical drive for files from business associates on CDs, and I have a couple hundred music CDs to load into iTunes. I could add an outboard USB SuperDrive to a MacBook Air but then I lose some of the Mac’s beautiful simplicity.

The MacBook Pro 15.4" meets all these requirements, but it also has a glassy-glossy display. This must have a lot of showroom appeal because most laptops have it. (Have you noticed that a lot of desktop monitors other than Macs are going back to non-glare screens?) I was not looking forward to paying big bucks to App...
