didn't have a problem with my old macbook 13" plastic, didn't have a problem with my 13" MBP intel core 2 duo, don't have any problems with my i7 macbook retina

after using each of my previous laptops for about 2 years, i sold them for only a few hundred less than i paid, windows laptop on that

I have had a 15 inch macbook pro for 3 years now. I can honestly say that I have had no problems at all. I highly recommend buying one

And if you get the apple care, they pretty much got your back for like everything

just bought a macbook last sunday and have had it for about 5 days. I like it; it's alot different with the interface and keyboard shortcuts. It takes time to get use to, but after a couple days you'll develop a liking for it. Honestly, I've been using only pc's in the past and I could honestly not really care between a mac or a pc. Invest in a computer that has everything you need.However the plus on the mac is you can run both pc and mac easily, and the design of a macbook is so beautiful.

I bought a Macbook Pro in 2007 and am still very happy with it. I replaced the original HDD with an SSD and must say the spped bump was very impressive. Mountain Lion and all apps run smoothly on it. I guess I will kepp it till it dies... Or till the next generation of Macbook airs come out. I really like them but I just don't like the big beazel around the screen...

How long does a MacBook battery last? And what kind of prices can I expect to see on black Friday or Christmas week

Load and boot times on an SSD is so much quicker. Worth it man

need advice on mbp
not interested in retina
looking at a late-2011 MD322LL/A
2.5ghz i7, 15.4 matte high resolution screen
8gb 1333mhz ram
750gb hdd for basically $1500

brand new 13.3" mbp MD102LL/A the high end version

I would eventually play video games on it but screen size ain't a major deal for me.
mainly looking at specs quad core + gpu

I have owned several Macs and PCs and loved both. I enjoy PC slightly more though.

I've really had one laptop (dell) and it's been alright for the 3 years i've had it but needs a new battery which i don't feel like replacing and has other problems but it's my first.. I've been thinking about trying out a macbook pro. Mostly i just browse the internet a lot, watch vids/movies, listen to/download music and movies. Mostly watch movies from my laptop via hdmi and if i'm not mistaken, macbooks don't have an hdmi port? I also like customization and sort of like the aesthetic of apple. Been lookin on craigslist for macbook pros recently. Just wanted to get an opinion on what i should do or what i should purchase. as far as gb, RAM, and all that techinical shit goes.. Appreciate any info

Jan 08, 2013 @ 20:28
after reading some posts i'll be purchasing one now

I have a 09 Macbook and my harddrive failed but had it replaced under apple care, but besides that nothing has went wrong, and its an older model so I can still replace things if needed. Its all comes down to personal preference of OS though. Both are capable of the same things.

Bought a Macbook Pro back in 2008 and it just recently died. Was my fault though since I would use it while on my bed, so the battery overheated from the computer sinking into the bed and not being able to vent properly. I've learned my lesson since. Other than that mishap, it's been the best computer I've had to date. No viruses or any of that crap and very simple user interface. I remember when I had PC's, they'd have problems every couple of months or so. 

I'd say it's worth it, depending on what you're using it for. I mainly edit on programs and type papers, so it's fine for me.
