I had been happy with my macbook (and still am, it's still working fine) but decided to invest in the new Macbook (2.3GHz with 16GB RAM) whilst I undertook my post-graduate degree. I was not expecting such an improvement in every aspect of performance. The speed of processing multiple tasks, boot-up time is instant like the MBA. The sound is loud, crisp and clear. As my first aluminium laptop, the chassis is elegant, no-frills and super robust. I wear things hard and after 6 months intensive use not so much as a scratch.Read more ›
Of course the talking point has to be regarding the display itself. It has 5.1 million pixels, which is about 3 million more than an HDTV. To say that the screen is stunning is an understatement. It really has to be seen to be believed. To date, the Apple apps that ship with the laptop are all rendered perfectly for the resolution, but at the time of writing, the majority of third party apps are not correctly configured for the display, making them look a little fuzzy. Some of questioned this as being a clever ploy to increase the number of users of Safari, Apple's internet browser (which makes web pages look stunning). Google Chrome and Firefox both look slightly more fuzzy, although I doubt it will take long for them to update their browsers. Until then, Safari is the best bet for browsing the web.Read more ›
When arrived and opened the box, the keyboard was different, not greatly different but it was not a UK model. It does not state anywhere that it is a international or us keyboard. Secondly, this computer is not even american after checking the serial number which is MC975ZP/A. It is a Con to let these companies trade on the UK Amazon site and trick customers into thinking it is a UK model by not stating clearly that it is a international model.
I have used it now and it is not hard to adjust as i have used Arabic and US keyboards in the past but for anybody not used to the change it would be an issue. Causes a little confusion when i switch from iMAC UK model to this now.
Just a note to everyone that take it into account before purchasing.
My only gripe is the lack of external connections. Two USBs is pretty limited, particularly because it has no built in DVD and it is likely if you use any kind of CD or DVD you'll end up with one of these, and with the limited internal memory you're going to use an external drive. I also have a USB external wireless broadband dongle so already I'm having to pack a USB hub! You have two Thunderbolt connections which sounds fabulous, but realistically what is available is overpriced, cheapest external disc you can get is nearly £200 with cable for 500GB and you'll get the same speed as USB3.0 out of that as you're limited by the speed of the HDD - you'll pay less than £50 for a similar USB so why bother!?! Nice of Apple to make it future proof but it seems Thunderbolt has been around a year and no real reduction in cost in Thunderbolt hardware...
Still I'm pretty happy with it. I did also buy an AppleCare package with it, there is nothing user serviceable and everything is sealed and soldered onto the main board, if this fails it is going to be very expensive to fix so definitely worth thinking about!

In use the battery life is quite poor for a laptop of this quality and price. The charge cable/transformer is very bulky and heavy. Most disappointing.Published on 6 May 2013 by Jm Crossfield
