1.0 out of 5 stars USED - Fraudulently sold as new 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased a Macbook Pro ME293B/A from Concept Tech through Amazon "fulfilled", ordered 28th Feb 2014, delivered 1st March. Described as brand new. IT WAS USED. The previous owner's details, Apple message ID, Safari history and system log from 20th February was all there for me to read. Amazon gave me a returns label for pick up but I assume Concept Tech are still flogging old as new.

Edit 4th March 2014. Days later, "Concept Tech" mysteriously and suddenly turned into "Xtra Cubby". Google "Amazon Macbook Fraud" for the full story on this.

By John Ryan HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
It's a huge investment buying a new computer. I converted from Windows to a Mac, and here's why....

Quick word of warning: I'm a recent (July 2012) convert from Windows to a MacBook Pro, and was lucky enough to recently upgrade to a stunning 13 inch Retina. While I love Apple products, I'm not a Mac expert, and this review is for similar non-experts who are thinking about "converting". Because it's a review of the MBP range, you'll find the same review on other specs - skip to the end to see the specifics on this model.

Firstly, the hardware - which is just stunning. It's incredibly thin and light, and the 15 inch screen is just gigantic - even if you intend to attach an external monitor for much of the time.

In common with all Apple MacBooks it's beautifully carved out of a solid piece of brushed aluminium, with a huge track-pad and a beautifully made back-lit keyboard.

In terms of connectivity you get:-

* Mag Safe power plug.
* 2 x Thunderbolt ports - to attach to fast external disks etc
* 2 x USB 3 ports (one either side - nice touch)
* Headphones output for external speakers
* An SDXC photo card slot
* A full size HDMI port - so you connect an external monitor

Apple hardware is more expensive than the equivalent running Windows, but you do get what you pay for, and they come with incredible attention to detail. This includes the cleverly designed "Mag Safe" magnetic power socket - so if a small child accidentally pulls on the power cable it disconnects from the laptop rather than dragging it crashing to the floor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning display 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase
In view of the large number of USA and Hong Kong market MacBook Pro retina display models are on sale on Amazon, I thought long and hard about buying one here. in the Amazon Marketplace Gadget Heaven clearly state that theirs is a UK market model, so I took the plunge and bought from them, with fulfillment by Amazon. And I am very happy to advise and confirm that it is indeed a UK model, thank goodness! And a saving of exactly 400 from the list retail price was a tremendous bonus. The quality of my high resolution Canon DSLR photos at the resolution on the retina model is breathtaking. And that was the main reason for getting this model. Setting up from a MacBook Air Time Machine backup via a Thunderbolt external HD took just over 10 minutes (80 GB worth). And carrying out a HD test using the excellent and free Blackmagic Disk Speed Test gave both read and write figures of around 730 MBS for this 256 GB SSD, which is staggeringly fast!
UK (and Ireland) market MacBooks have the country code letter B before the forward slash at the end of the model number. US market have the letters LL in the same location, and Hong Kong is ZP.

Being an owner of Apple computers for many years and always being drawn to all things shiny and new, decided to increase my screen real-estate and upgrade my 2012, 13" MacBook Pro with Retina to the 2013, 15" equivalent. As well as the usual increases in CPU, performance and lightning-fast Wi-Fi from the new 802.11AC adaptor (thanks to an earlier AirPort Extreme upgrade I now have 1gbit wireless) I was hoping a bigger screen would lessen these headaches and eye strains from long hours of use.

So I took the plunge and ordered from Amazon - I had looked around the High Street and was well aware of the full 1699 asking price for this spec of MacBook, but having seen the discounts available on Amazon I was more than tempted. I'd seen previous warnings about non-UK versions...but I was ordering from Amazon, so that couldn't happen....could it?

Well the item came yesterday (thanks Mr. Parcelforce for being decent enough to carry on past the usual 1pm cut-off on a Saturday and getting all your parcels delivered!!) and I must admit I was almost Christmas-morning excited. Unfortunately, after opening the box and seeing all labels removed from the Apple brown carriage box...my heart began to sink.

Even more so when opening the outer box to see the MacBook Pro box nicely shrink wrapped (so it wasn't a refurb, but a nice new item) but with 2 massive stickers on the shrink-wrap covering over where the model number and serial number are on the box. Anyone smell a rat?

Thanks to some glue desolver, care and time I was able to remove the labels and there it was...what I was dreading...ME293ZP/A. I'd read another review warning that this could happen, but buying from someone represented by Amazon I was hoping that there was some form of assurance.
