15" MBP 4gb
, 23 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro MD103B/A (Intel Quad-Core i7 2.3GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, HD Graphics 4000, NVIDIA GT 650M, OS X Lion) (Personal Computers)
So excited about finally getting this. Arrived in a sleek box and everything about is machine class, from the smooth (but cold) brushed ali case to the bright LCD screen and amazing trackpad. Even the the mains adapter is special.(it's the little things, isn't it?)Like the black screen cleaning cloth with an Apple embossed on it.
It took a bit of time to get used to the O.S having always been a Windows person until now but once mastered (which wasn't too difficult) it is second to none, fast and slick, I love it!
So why only 3 stars you might ask? Well, firstly the caps-lock key only seems to work intermittently which is really annoying, having to punch it multiple times to get an upper case letter but wanting to love my new MBP decided I would learn to live with it. Then it started to randomly shut down and restart, at first I thought it was just some minor glitch which would go away on it's own but when it began happening every half an hour or so and losing all my data in the proccess. I decided I would have to admit defeat so after only 10 days of ownership I sent it back. Sadly it's winging it's way back to Amazon as I type, (on my old Windows machine incidently)
Having said this, I loved the O.S so much that as soon as a refund has been proccessed I will getting a new one, as I'm sure (hoping) it was just a one off and I was just unlucky. Better luck next time eh?
