Amazing piece of hardware + nice price on Amazon!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apple ME865B/A 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Intel Dual Core i5 2.4GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB HDD, Iris Pro Graphics, Mac OS X) (Personal Computers)
I was a bit doubtful with the 8 GB as it won't be expandable in the future.
Instead, I'm using this MacBook for almost everything and it's blazing fast! It boots in seconds, not a single blimp during usage.
The battery runs literally for hours, I often forget the last time I recharged it.
But the real jewel is the display. The retina resolution is simply amazing. The only fear I had was regarding the glossy for which I had bad experience with other PC laptops . Instead it does not reflect any light, you can use it in any condition. It's the best display I've ever used so far.
I'm completely satisfied with the product. 256 GB of SSD + 8 Gb of RAM is IMHO the best compromise on price/performance for this model.
