The item is very slow, freezes and the cable may not be genuine. I would not recommend this product! The product is faulty and the seller refuses to deal with any problems that arise. If you have any sense keep away from this seller!!!!

Buy with Caution. One year after purchase i.e. ten days out of warranty the laptop is dead. Apple Genius Bar have diagnosed the problems and now I have a £835.20 repair bill. Think carefully about buying this device without extended warranty thereby adding several hundred pounds/dollars to what is already a premium price. Apple market this laptop as it's first laptop with such leading-edge technology and I believe the experiment has failed. The components used are not sufficiently reliable to be assembled into several large units - when a component fails the larger unit needs replacing.

The space bar developed a known fault within the warranty period (but I could get by with the problem) - it has to be pressed hard at its center to register a space (tapping on its edges, as you'd naturally do, while typing fails). To fix this issue requires a complete replacement of the "Top Case with Keyboard". The "Logic Board, ETSI, 1.1GHz, 256 GB" must be replaced to solve the problem of the device not starting up or charging.

£212.00 661-02243 Top Case with Keyboard, Space Gray
£415.00 661-02249 Logic Board, ETSI, 1.1GHz, 256 GB
£ 69.00 S1490LL/A Hardware Repair Labor

Apple Genus/ Apple Care are not allowing me to escalate the issue to the appropriate level of seniority within the organisation and I'm pushed into going around in circles speaking to people reading from a script. The Amazon shop "inShop" it was purchased from have not replied to my requests for advice/assistance. I don't believe they are accountable as I bought this laptop brand new and unboxed it myself. It arrived in protective packaging.

The model I received was not the MK4M2B/A! Instead it is the MK4M2PZ/A. This is the Hong Kong model, has no £ symbol on the keyboard and a wide - rather than high - enter button (which is so frustrating if you're used to a UK keyboard as you'll forever hit the \ button).

Look out for the letter(s) before the /A in the model number. B is England & Ireland. PZ is Hong Kong & Macau. For a full list see https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/Model_Regions

Is worth noting that you're still covered by Apple Warranty though. However, if you need a replacement, you'll have to wait for Apple to get the same region in and won't be a direct swap like it would be if it was a UK model.

Hopefully, this'll save someone aggro. lol

This is not the UK model (MK4M2B/A). Instead it is the Hong Kong model (MK4M2PZ/A).

Does not have a UK keyboard - no £ symbol.

Before purchasing this I read reviews that highlighted mainly on:
1. Only having a single USB C port (So you cant charge it and use a USB device at same time).
2. Its slow performance
3. Its keyboard.
4. Its price
5. Comparisons with a Macbook Air.

I read reviews, watched youtube videos and finally bit the bullet, here's my findings to the 5 main points, then I will add other thoughts at the bottom of review:
1. I thought I would find the lack of ports to be a deal breaker and you know what, it really isn't. I have discovered that I am happy to use it as a laptop rather than a semi desktop. I bought a "dongle" with USB ports and a USB-C port so I can charge and access USB devices at the same time, but have only used it once.
2. Performance hasn't been an issue at all, OK its not super fast, (I have an Octacore 2008 Mac Pro and a 15 inch Macbook Pro (i7) for comparison. (By the way the MBP 15 inch is a beast BUT on a flight to NYC I realised its hardly the ideal travel companion.
3. I actually prefer the keyboard (I have wired aluminium keyboard on Mac Pro and and bluetooth one on MBP ( I use that with a Caldigit Thunderbolt dock and 5k Monitor mainly, its become the stay at home semi-desktop!)
4. Price was £903 on Amazon, some £146 cheaper than in the apple store, and in Space Grey I like it, I like it a lot.
5. My daughters have Macbook airs, (Hey we are an apple family, dont beat us up for that, we have toyed with Android, (OnePlus One, Nexus 4,5,6 and 7 (2012/2013) and just got fed up with it, (I miss Action Launcher Pro v3 though). So I tried the air vs the Macbook 12 and the 12 is so much smaller and lighter and the screen is fantastic. I would suggest try them both back to back in the apple store.

Not the best compact laptop I have purchased,

I am not a fan of the way that the keys are set in the "butterfly" setting. I prefer the conventional key press of the other compact computers such as the normal MacBook Air.

Otherwise, having dropped them a few times, i have found this computer to be very sturdy and up to the job of being used to take to class

okay, just a few concerns and things that i do not like!!
