    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Macbook Gal

    I've purchased this model of the MacBook; the day after Christmas. When I bought it, I fell in love with it. I bought the Gold Color; which I thought was cute. Although the MacBook came with the 256GB which I thought was enough. I bought this MacBook for online school, it is so flawless. I love the quietness, no viruses and the compatibility. It is very fast. This is my first MacBook and I will keep it forever.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    Speedy new me!

    Replaced my 10-year-old MacBook Air & I am so happy. The new one has many improvements, for example in the grammar & spelling corrections. Speed is greatly improved. Unfortunately the USB port is different so I had to buy an adapter to look at any old flash drives. Not sure why they did that, but since it’s Apple, I’m sure there was a good reason.

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love the size and weight of this MacBook. The keyboard and trackpad are awesome!! It all works and performs as you would expect from a premium computer. I bought a Incase Icon sleeve to store in when not in use. That is a must have accessory to have to protect computer. This was my second MacBook Air purchase. I purchased first one from Apple directly. I liked mine so much I bought the girlfriend this one for her birthday from Best Buy. She's in love with it as well. Thank you Apple and Best Buy!

    My First Macbook and a great one

    My entry to Apple’s ecosystem started with an iphone , which motivated me to buy a mac just to get a feel of it.

    However after I purchased this mac, I love how powerful this macbook is. The sound is crisp and the screen is crystal clear.This is a treat to my senses. I develop applications in Java and my apps compile at lightning speed making the overall dev process faster.

    Great upgrade for a laptop!

    I previously owned a 2017 MacBook Air which wasn’t a bad choice but for what I’m doing now the 2020 MacBook Pro has easy, cool new features I wasn’t used to. I now have the memory/storage for all of my Creative Cloud programs and photos from Photography. I just started Drafting and AutoCAD for Mac runs pretty good in my opinion. The processor is faster and definitely keeps up!

    Artist

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!! Thank you!

    Pretty Good

    It's a good machine. I bought this as a temp replacement for my Razer Blade Advanced that's now with the Geek Squad unfortunately. It's not as fast as the Razer Blade but its close and I'm not crazy about soldered components but I'll take it over a non-working machine.

    Here's my experience:

    Temps: Excellent! Light use (email) results in around temps of 80 F. Medium use (5-6 web browser tabs open, a few applications running, etc) temps are in the range of 100 F - 130 F (about 113-117 F stable with a cooling pad). Maxing out all 6 cores, I saw temps in the range of about 170 F (with a cooling pad). This is the first MBP and first power user laptop that I can actually put in my lap for light to medium use without cooking meat...Nice!!!

    Battery: No 11 hours yet as Apple advertises. I'm getting about 7+ hours on the light end and about 9+ on the high end.

    Touch Bar: After a heavy use of multiple applications, the Touch Bar froze and required a kill command through Terminal; not crazy about that. I miss the physical buttons for brightness, volume, etc.

    Finger Sensor: It's accurate and fast. Very nice integration for logging in and authenticating online and off.

    Speakers: They're amazing, the best I've ever heard on a laptop in terms of cleanness of sound and loudness. I find myself turning the volume down more than up. The sound cleanses I'd say is the equivalent to a $60 external Bluetooth speaker.

    Mic: I didn't find it to be cats pajamas as it's advertised to be. It's better than my Samsung Note 9 cellphone quality but not by much.

    Screen: It's a MBP, always awesome. Greatly enjoying the 16:10 ratio.

    Keyboard: It's renamed the "magic keyboard" but it's actually the older keyboard before the not liked "Butterfly Keyboard". It feels good for long term typing and sounds good...it always has. No complaints.

    If you're a Power User and not doing 3D rendering then I would keep with the i7 and upgrade the memory. In retrospect, I should have bumped up to 32 GB as when I'm running full, I'm typically down to 1.5 GB - 2 GB of free memory.

    My last MBP is now 10 years old and cost around $3,700 for a maxed out 17". That breaks down to about $30.83 a month. If this Mac last as long, then $24 a month is amazing for this caliber of machine for many years to come.

    Grad school necessity

    So my 2013 MPB started having keyboard trouble. I eventually settled on this 16 in after looking at the air and the 13 in pros. Anyway, I've been having to use my external monitor when writing papers for school and I was tired of having to sit at my desk. I typically read research papers on one screen, type on another, and browse the web on another. On the 13 in the side by side windows were too small and I had to subtly manipulate each window. With the 16 inch, I can have all three windows open to decent sizes, side by side by side. Great for productivity. Everything else is as most online review state - good keyboard, nice speakers, etc. The battery life seems good but it still drains roughly 10% per hour depending on usage. Charging is fast and having the ability to charge on both sides of the laptop is another plus for me. This machine is expensive but I hope to keep it for 10 years! I also plan to get into coding and again setting up side by side windows is great with the amount of stuff you can see. I have the setting to the smallest font so I can see a whole lot on one screen.

    This is what I needed! Awesome laptop, I needed a laptop that I could do my editing on the go when I could not be at home editing on my iMac .. I needed a laptop that could handle the work load and get my photos or videos edited as fast a possible. I don’t have time for waiting. So if your a filmmaker or photographer this is a awesome tool to have In your bag. It still fits in my bag even though they say It will only fit up to a 15inch laptop this 16inch still fits no problem!!

    Just a downright great laptop!

    I thought I wouldn’t love it since the ports are all usb-c but after discovering they have adapters I truly love it! It’s so much faster than my old early 2015 MBP 13 inch and I can easily run FCP on it with no worries. I still bought an external hard drive to keep space free on my laptop. The huge screen is a game changer and I love that I can open it with my fingerprint or my Apple Watch. I mean it’s MCP. Just Buy it already.

    IN LOVE & RUNS SIMS 4 WONDERFULLY

    when I tell you I am smitten by this laptop.... I’m 26 and have never owned my own laptop or made such a hefty purchase but man, was she worth it.

    I spent over a week spinning my wheels about what kind of device to get and what brand. Although I am a loyal Apple customer, I didn’t want to spend too much money and was actually going to purchase a windows mid price laptop. BUT, I just KNEW I wouldn’t be completely happy with it and I’d keep thinking about this MacBook Air.

    I wanted something that would knock me off my feet, something I’m used to functioning (I’m familiar and comfortable with apple products), and something that would last me a LONG TIME.

    Another huge piece of my decision making is the fact that I wanted to be able to play Sims 4 on my new laptop. I’m aware Apple devices historically aren’t for gaming, but guess what, this new M1 chip isn’t messing around. After chatting with some tech professionals at Best Buy and them assuring me this laptop would run Sims 4 beautifully, I knew what I had to do.

    Let me just say that the Big Sur update along with this M1 chip make this laptop an absolute DREAM. She is incredible and I cherish her. She runs so smoothly, plays Sims SO smoothly, all of the new updates are outstanding, and I couldn’t be happier.

    Worth every dollar spent. 5/5 purchase. You won’t regret it. :)

    The 2014 Mac Air VS the New Mac Air

    I own two Mac Airs. One from 2014 and this one. I would like to compare the two because I feel there are some features on the older version that are more desirable.

    1. The Battery

    The new Mac battery lasts forever and charges quickly with a USB-C port. I favor the older magnetic charger but that's a small thing.

    2. Display

    The new display is very clear however, the screen extends to the very edge of the device similar to the iPhone. So if you drop this device you're screwed. I dropped my 2014 and it dented the edge of the screen but didn't break the glass because of the extra aluminum edge. I don't think the new Mac screen would survive this.

    3. The web cam

    The 2014 is very dark for some reason. The new Mac seems to have fixed this issue with a nice and clear video.

    4. USB ports

    The 2014 has 2 USB-A ports, a lighting connection port, phone jack and an SDXC card slot

    The new Mac only has two USB-C ports and a headphone jack! so you need a number of adapters to connect anything which is quite annoying especially since my wireless mouse uses an old USB-A. Apple only sells limited adapters so you need to buy PC adapters which I'm not crazy about. However I have a dual USB-A adapter from Dell that works great

    5. The Chip

    The M1 chip is lighting fast. Even though my 2014 has an 1.4 Ghz dual core I5, it doesn't compare.

    6. The famous logo

    It's another little thing but, I liked the illuminated apple logo on the back of the 2014. Maybe its no longer there to extend battery life? Idk but I thought it was a nice feature that separated apple from the rest.

    Read BEFORE purchasing “Open box” condition!

    I bought this online in “Open box” condition meaning the display model. It was described as being on excellent condition and all in all I ended up paying around $970 for it after taxes and fees. When I first received the laptop I was immediately in awe of its beauty (I bought the rose gold version) However upon trying to set up the laptop and gain access into it I ran into a bunch of issues which required me to contact Apple support. Best Buy had not done a software reset on the laptop before shipping it to me which resulted in me not being able to log in or set up my password. It was only after 2 days of receiving it that Apple finally pin pointed the issue and was able to walk me through doing a complete reset thereby allowing me to finally gain access into my laptop! Ever since then I’ve been in love with it! My only small complaint would be that I have to buy an adapter now to be able to connect my phone to it, other than that this was a great buy!

    Macbook Gal

    I've purchased this model of the MacBook; the day after Christmas. When I bought it, I fell in love with it. I bought the Gold Color; which I thought was cute. Although the MacBook came with the 256GB which I thought was enough. I bought this MacBook for online school, it is so flawless. I love the quietness, no viruses and the compatibility. It is very fast. This is my first MacBook and I will keep it forever.

    My one and only daily driver for everything

    I have been using this laptop as my daily driver ever since the day I purchased it. It has never overheated. The most it ever gets is a bit warm after having 10+ windows and applications open in the background. The feeling of the laptop is therapeutic and feels amazing, but I recommend having some form of protection because it does feel like one drop from a decent height can be fatal. The display is great. The sound is from the speakers are actually more than decent. Overall, this MacBook Air has been amazing. Highly recommend!

    Speedy new me!

    Replaced my 10-year-old MacBook Air & I am so happy. The new one has many improvements, for example in the grammar & spelling corrections. Speed is greatly improved. Unfortunately the USB port is different so I had to buy an adapter to look at any old flash drives. Not sure why they did that, but since it’s Apple, I’m sure there was a good reason.

    Look no further....THIS IS IT!!

    Absolutely FANTASTIC! I love the size and weight of this MacBook. The keyboard and trackpad are awesome!! It all works and performs as you would expect from a premium computer. I bought a Incase Icon sleeve to store in when not in use. That is a must have accessory to have to protect computer. This was my second MacBook Air purchase. I purchased first one from Apple directly. I liked mine so much I bought the girlfriend this one for her birthday from Best Buy. She's in love with it as well. Thank you Apple and Best Buy!

    An acceptable replacement for an old MBP17

    It’s blazing. The 16 inch screen is amazing, even in comparison to my old MBP17. I miss the MagSafe power connector. Hoping I don’t break this one off inside the laptop. The TouchPad is rather large, leaving little room for palms and an awkward hand position for typing. I was weary of the TouchBar, but now I love it!! Get yourself an adapter now. You will certainly need a USB-C adapter.

I've been an Apple fan for years I welcomed the 16" especially when they did away with the 17" MacBook Pro. If you are considering this 16" then you should totally buy one, I love mine.

    IN LOVE & RUNS SIMS 4 WONDERFULLY

    when I tell you I am smitten by this laptop.... I’m 26 and have never owned my own laptop or made such a hefty purchase but man, was she worth it.

    I spent over a week spinning my wheels about what kind of device to get and what brand. Although I am a loyal Apple customer, I didn’t want to spend too much money and was actually going to purchase a windows mid price laptop. BUT, I just KNEW I wouldn’t be completely happy with it and I’d keep thinking about this MacBook Air.

    I wanted something that would knock me off my feet, something I’m used to functioning (I’m familiar and comfortable with apple products), and something that would last me a LONG TIME.

    Another huge piece of my decision making is the fact that I wanted to be able to play Sims 4 on my new laptop. I’m aware Apple devices historically aren’t for gaming, but guess what, this new M1 chip isn’t messing around. After chatting with some tech professionals at Best Buy and them assuring me this laptop would run Sims 4 beautifully, I knew what I had to do.

    Let me just say that the Big Sur update along with this M1 chip make this laptop an absolute DREAM. She is incredible and I cherish her. She runs so smoothly, plays Sims SO smoothly, all of the new updates are outstanding, and I couldn’t be happier.

    Worth every dollar spent. 5/5 purchase. You won’t regret it. :)

    I was a first grader when it came to anything tech and was afraid to buy a laptop for that reason. As an Art Instructor, during COVID, unique teaching methods had to be considered and used and I had to get into the modern way of doing things. The salespeople and Geek Squad made it so easy for me, and are so welcoming and attentive to my need that, in just a few short weeks, I now feel like a fourth grader in the tech department!!!

    Pretty Good

    It's a good machine. I bought this as a temp replacement for my Razer Blade Advanced that's now with the Geek Squad unfortunately. It's not as fast as the Razer Blade but its close and I'm not crazy about soldered components but I'll take it over a non-working machine.

    Here's my experience:

    Temps: Excellent! Light use (email) results in around temps of 80 F. Medium use (5-6 web browser tabs open, a few applications running, etc) temps are in the range of 100 F - 130 F (about 113-117 F stable with a cooling pad). Maxing out all 6 cores, I saw temps in the range of about 170 F (with a cooling pad). This is the first MBP and first power user laptop that I can actually put in my lap for light to medium use without cooking meat...Nice!!!

    Battery: No 11 hours yet as Apple advertises. I'm getting about 7+ hours on the light end and about 9+ on the high end.

    Touch Bar: After a heavy use of multiple applications, the Touch Bar froze and required a kill command through Terminal; not crazy about that. I miss the physical buttons for brightness, volume, etc.

    Finger Sensor: It's accurate and fast. Very nice integration for logging in and authenticating online and off.

    Speakers: They're amazing, the best I've ever heard on a laptop in terms of cleanness of sound and loudness. I find myself turning the volume down more than up. The sound cleanses I'd say is the equivalent to a $60 external Bluetooth speaker.

    Mic: I didn't find it to be cats pajamas as it's advertised to be. It's better than my Samsung Note 9 cellphone quality but not by much.

    Screen: It's a MBP, always awesome. Greatly enjoying the 16:10 ratio.

    Keyboard: It's renamed the "magic keyboard" but it's actually the older keyboard before the not liked "Butterfly Keyboard". It feels good for long term typing and sounds good...it always has. No complaints.

    If you're a Power User and not doing 3D rendering then I would keep with the i7 and upgrade the memory. In retrospect, I should have bumped up to 32 GB as when I'm running full, I'm typically down to 1.5 GB - 2 GB of free memory.

    My last MBP is now 10 years old and cost around $3,700 for a maxed out 17". That breaks down to about $30.83 a month. If this Mac last as long, then $24 a month is amazing for this caliber of machine for many years to come.

    Grad school necessity

    So my 2013 MPB started having keyboard trouble. I eventually settled on this 16 in after looking at the air and the 13 in pros. Anyway, I've been having to use my external monitor when writing papers for school and I was tired of having to sit at my desk. I typically read research papers on one screen, type on another, and browse the web on another. On the 13 in the side by side windows were too small and I had to subtly manipulate each window. With the 16 inch, I can have all three windows open to decent sizes, side by side by side. Great for productivity. Everything else is as most online review state - good keyboard, nice speakers, etc. The battery life seems good but it still drains roughly 10% per hour depending on usage. Charging is fast and having the ability to charge on both sides of the laptop is another plus for me. This machine is expensive but I hope to keep it for 10 years! I also plan to get into coding and again setting up side by side windows is great with the amount of stuff you can see. I have the setting to the smallest font so I can see a whole lot on one screen.

    So stoked

    This is what I needed! Awesome laptop, I needed a laptop that I could do my editing on the go when I could not be at home editing on my iMac .. I needed a laptop that could handle the work load and get my photos or videos edited as fast a possible. I don’t have time for waiting. So if your a filmmaker or photographer this is a awesome tool to have In your bag. It still fits in my bag even though they say It will only fit up to a 15inch laptop this 16inch still fits no problem!!

    Great MacBook

    This MacBook is amazing. Prior to buying this MacBook I had the 2015 MacBook Pro, and although that MacBook was great, it does not compare to the 2019 one. I can do so much with this MacBook that I never thought possible with the 2015 model. So glad I waited for this one.

    Just a downright great laptop!

    I thought I wouldn’t love it since the ports are all usb-c but after discovering they have adapters I truly love it! It’s so much faster than my old early 2015 MBP 13 inch and I can easily run FCP on it with no worries. I still bought an external hard drive to keep space free on my laptop. The huge screen is a game changer and I love that I can open it with my fingerprint or my Apple Watch. I mean it’s MCP. Just Buy it already.

    Overall a very nice & reliable laptop. Only thing I don’t like is that you have to purchase an adaptor separately if you want to plug your phone or usb in. For the price that should have been included...

    New MacBook Pro Gives Me a Leap Forward

    When my 2012 MacBook Pro died after 8 years of solid service, I knew I wanted another Mac. But I seriously considered going for a desktop as I've gotten into video creation and editing. No need - my new MacBook Pro has 1 TB of onboard storage, and 16 GB of RAM - plus plenty of processing power for churning out videos without a sweat. While I'm usually working at my desk, it's great to know that this workhorse can come along anywhere I need it!

    Good quality and features

    I purchased this computer to replace the HP Spectre 13 inch windows machine. So far I am happy with the new machine. It is quite the switch to move from windows to Mac operating system though. I have it paired with the Apple keyboard and a Logitech mx master 3 mouse and connected a 23 inch monitor for desktop use.

    Tommy T’s MacBook Pro Story

    The MacBook Pro 13 is the perfect size and performs fabulously. I plan on using it for my music study as well as for architectural drawing projects and residential design.

    I was using a windows based PC my entire career and just retired and bout the MacBook. I am very happy to make the change and adapting quickly to the user friendly operating system that Apple provides.

    Love it!

    Can’t complain yet.

    When I worked as a Certified Apple Technician I told myself I would never upgrade to one of these Touch Bar MacBook Pros but my 10 year old MacBook Pro started to slow down and I was tired of upgrading the internals of the machine and decided to just upgrade to a newer MacBook Pro, I got the one that had a bit more power and storage to match the specs of the one I was used to as I use my machine for a lot of multitasking; photo, video, music production, as well as using two operating systems at once almost all the time. So far I haven’t had any frustration with the machine not being capable of doing what I want it to do. Only complaint I have is the complaint I had years ago when they first released a glimpse of these new models and that is the continuous purchases of cable adapters (aka. dongles) so right off the bat I had to spend an extra $100 for an adapter.

    Fantastic Option for College and Remote Learning

    I bought this for my daughter to use as she starts her first year of college. She had been using a new iPad and the specs on it weren't allowing her to access all of the sites she needed for class and tests -- lesson learned here to wait and see what remote learning will require during COVID. I was hoping to purchase this on sale, but she needed it too quickly so we took the plunge and are so glad we did. It is extremely fast, has a gorgeous display, and she absolutely loves it. I don't think she's stopped hugging me in appreciation since! Apple made it so easy for her to set up on her own as well, so she was up and running soon after she took it out of the box! With the 1TB storage, she'll be keeping it for the duration of her education, I'm sure, if not longer.

    Best Computer

    I had been using a 2015 MacBook Air since 2015 and it still works wonderfully, though it was starting to get a tiny bit slow. I also left it in a hot car which did not do wonders to the battery life, so I decided to upgrade. I went with the MacBook Pro and this computer is lighting fast! The speakers sound great. I love the new touch ID. The touch bar is an interesting feature that has it's pros and cons. It's nice to have a couple of the features it provides, but it would also be nice to have some of the dedicated function keys that you have to do without due to the bar.

    Overall, I highly recommend this computer!

    First MacBook

    I switched to this MacBook Air from a surface laptop. This computer is so much better because the keyboard isn’t made from cloth for one, further the keys feel amazing when typing on. The trackpad on this MacBook is the best I’ve ever touched because it’s a lot smoother and responsive than any laptop I touched before. Also if you click down it’s a lot quieter than most laptops. The operating system is very efficient since you can text off it, FaceTime, and take phone calls. If you are a student or someone looking to complete online work then this computer will be perfect for you. Also the screen quality on this MacBook is exquisite.

    Must have!

    I have always been a PC person. Always. But I am an iPhone user and thought “why not?” I am loving this machine and it’s portability. The weight is minimal and I found a great case, so I can take it anywhere. The charge lasts a while for me.

    I had a hard time setting it up at first. Switching everything over was hard, I was afraid of losing all my passwords for internet accounts. After the first day, it was better. There is a learning curve if you’ve never used one, but TOTALLY worth it.

    Love my new MacBook Air!

    I love my new MacBook Air, and the Rose Gold is so pretty! My old MacBook Pro was from 2012, and had started to run slow, so I made the choice to upgrade to a new device. The MacBook Air is much lighter, and it is so fast. I ordered online, and it was delivered safely in just a few days. I've had it about a month now, and I'm well pleased. It was so easy to set up that I was up and running in a matter of minutes. Some people shy away from Mac products thinking that they are too expensive, however my previous MacBook Pro was 8 years old before I replaced it with this Air, so I feel that in then long run, these products are cost efficient. I never had a PC to last half that long without issues.

    Fast delivery

    So far so good, I’m happy with this purchase. Very fast machine for all your needs. Since I used the iPhone why not stay with the same brand.

    Needed a boost from the MacBook Air

    Indeed, is the answer to transitioning to this over from a Air. Perhaps you have a different experience but since I’ve recently received this MacBook. I have now both Air and Pro but this MacBook gets really hot and I am only doing the same things side to side from my air and seems to get to hot while my Air stays cool. I needed this for school so I could work on my photography and now I’ve seem to have to use the Air more because I’m afraid that the Pro heats up and I don’t not want to chance any mechanical failures and for just about 1800 dollars and that’s getting one that’s opened box, certified And looks New only came missing was that actual box. Boxes are penny’s over what you get inside them but. This heat thing does worry me and I’ve made lots of calls but pandemic is hard to communicate so I hope this works out. First in college and already two MacBooks. Fingers crossed I guess.

    Super cute in Silver!

    I love my new MacBook pro I am new to the MacBook family! Previous to this I always owned Windows computers and those always seemed to crap out very quickly. I've had my laptop about a week now and I love it ! The speed is great and I love that I can find really cute cases online. I also got Apple care + with my purchase and I intend to keep this laptop for some time ! The 13 inch screen I thought was gonna be too small for me it's a decent size and fits in many bags or purses. Mine has an IPAPA case on it.

    Disappointing purchase

    Very disappointed. I am not expected brand new Apple iMac book pro will give me the battery issue. Wasted my time picking up and returned it. I will not purchase another mac book pro again.

    Ordered new MacBook - Got a Refurbished one

    Ordered a new MacBook Pro from Best Buy but received a used one with scratches and dents on it (see pictures)

    This is the second time I ordered a new laptop online from Best Buy and I had to return the last time. Very disappointed and will stay away from buying things at best buy

    It is...

    ...More than adequate! I purchased this for my daughter and her excellent husband. I do NOT buy junque for either friends or family. Apple makes a quality product and this particular MacBook Pro is nothing but a quality piece of equipment.

    Is it FAST? Yup!

    Is it beautifully made? Yupp!

    Is the screen superb-a-mundo excellente'? Yuppers!

    Look, I am not here to lie to you just to make myself out to be something other than a satisfied BB & fApple customer. My daughter and her husband reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally like their new PowerBook! Like, not "love". Only a fool pretends to love something as inanimate as an inanimate device.

    Buy one and I seriously doubt you will be disappointed. I am not. Again, I do NOT buy junque. Neither should you.

    Trust me. I know what I'm doin' when I'm reviewin'.

    MacBook Pro + Best Buy Never Disappoint

    I had such excellent help in selecting the right Mac product recently. The Best Buy sales person took his time to explain the differences between one laptop and another and showed me the latest features and their benefits in certain uses. I felt very comfortable making my selection because I was better informed than when I first entered the store. I was able to order the laptop -- it was not available at that time in the store, and it was shipped to the store for pick-up at a time that was convenient for me. I had the option to have it shipped to my house, but since it required a signature, I did not want to risk missing the delivery. Best Buy made it work for me and my situation. I really appreciate the outstanding service.

    2009 MacBook Pro to a 2019 MacBook Pro

    My family had the MacBook Pro since around 2009 2010 and it was finally time for an upgrade. When I say upgrade I mean New lol. We couldn't do our homework, apply to jobs, watch youtube, or even check our emails. I'm gonna be honest since I bought the latest model, there isn't much of a difference to my old one. I like that these newer laptops are lighter in weight. Some new things I noticed are the new clear screen, Siri, Touch Bar, new different usb slots, the keyboard clicking sound, like only a couple of new updates since the 2009 2010 model. Also there's no disc slot so I guess CDs are history lol. Not complaining but i thought I just point out those details for other people. The thing with Apple is that they make long lasting laptops. I figured I spend two grand to get the newest one and see how long it will last me and my family this time around. Heres hoping another 10 years lol or until I graduate. Overall its a great laptop and definitely and upgrade in the end.

    Lousy Customer Service & crappy warranty.

    Do not buy a refurbished item from Best BUy. They give you 15-16 days to return an item. And then when you try and return it after the time period, they refuse to give you a refund. How do you always know after 15 days if it is working right? They say it is gone thru thoroughly by the geeck squad, well let me tell you that is a bunch of bull. They sold us a defective item and did not want to make good on it. The San Marcos Mgr. Ann is lousy and very rude and their corp office which is based in the Philippines is even worse.they won’t help you at all. Because they don’t understand what you are saying. So spend the money and get a new one or go somewhere else and buy it.
