So much better than the latest models!
2 March 2017
I have owned and used many Macs over the years and am very much a fan.
I have 2 MacBooks and 2 iMacs. All have been great to set up and use from day 1.
My previous MacBook Pro died after 9 faultless years, so I bought the latest model before buying this one.
What a truly terrible "upgrade" to the previous MacBook Pro generations it was! It refused to stay attached to the house WiFi for more than a minute. Then it wouldn't take my backup from a time machine disk. Then it wouldn't finish initialising, saying it could go no further until it downloaded the latest iTunes (which it couldn't do due to internet access failure!). Then I restarted it and got the dreaded "?" symbol which basically means "Game Over" for the machine.
Thanks to Amazon's great after sales policy I returned that latest model, buying this one instead.
Brilliant - everything worked from the moment it was switched on and weeks later I'm writing this review on it after faultless performance and no internet connection issues.
If you're after a MacBook pro and don't want the hassle of spending £200 to add the sockets and card reader that this older model comes with as standard, buy one of these and I'm sure you'll not regret it.
