"Made for Mac"? I don't think so.
on 5 October 2016
While it might be the same colour as my old MacBook Pro, that's about as "Made for Mac" as this thing is.
I was hoping that the lauded Mac compatibility might mean that it'd just work out of the box, like so many other devices. But no, this one came with an installation disc that was unfortunately necessary this time around. Then came a clunky non-standard installation process, followed by the inevitable reboot.
Upon reboot, still No WiFi Hardware Detected (as my MacBook Pro's internal card has failed... the whole purpose of this purchase) but a hideously ugly proprietary icon appears on my Menu Bar. Clicking, it's the Edimax Wireless icon, offering the sole "Open Wireless Utility", which seems to do nothing. This thing isn't appearing as a standard network interface; it's not using standard drivers; UI design or anything else Apple approved.
This is just a case of bumping up the price by spray painting it silver and slapping an Apple on the front. Refund requested.
Oh, and although this was sold by Amazon as new, the packaging was dirty, scuffed, bent; and the installation disc inside was marked and dirty. No way was this new stock. If the thing worked properly I wouldn't mind, but an unsatisfactory transaction overall.
