Best Buy Customer Reviews

Quality piece of hardware for students Posted by: from: on The new MacBook is light, fast, sleek. It maintains a lot of the style elements of older MacBooks while still building on the design. The keyboard is flat, which is a departure from older models. Do not be fooled however, this new feature is a step forward, as it makes fast typing much easier and smoother (added 7 wpm to my personal best). The processing power of the new M8 chip is Impressive. Large excel sheets are easy to open and quick to load. Large PDFs stream easily and intensive web browsing is easy. While I have yet to test the machine for gaming or more intensive Adobe programming, I see this laptop competing with the Air as the go to computer for students and mobile professionals.

macbook dillema Posted by: from: on This is a great computer for someone that does what 99% of us do with computers, search the web, download pictures from cameras/devices, use MS Office, and other normal things. I had a bunch of windows/apps running at the same time and it worked just fine. Cons: I returned this item after 28 days (as elite member) after not getting over the anxiety of the Intel M series processor and single USB-C port. I was also haunted by the potential of a thinner Macbook Pro 13" in Q4CY16. I would recommend this mac to anyone. I can definitely see its utility for someone. I often wonder if I made the right decision.... Bottom line: the single USB-C port isn't really that big of a deal, but the 12" and the Intel M processor finally did me in. I went with a Macbook Pro 13".... I think I made the right choice (but I did like the Macbook 12")

Great student computer Posted by: from: on This computer is thinner than the MacBook air, and extremely light for portability to and from school and work. The screen quality is fantastic, and the sound is superb. My one qualm would be the lack of ports to plug other devices in (even a USB!), but with one quick add on plug you can plug in the works. Great for both personal and student use.

Mixed bag Posted by: from: on First off looks and feels amazing. I'm not returning it, that bein sad some issues I have. Gets kinda warm on the bottom it watchin 1080p videos on YouTube. And my biggest problem which in small in the grand scheme of things but it's not powerful enough to play 1440p video even though the screen supports it constant stutters : ( otherwise takes care of my school needs.

A tiny workhorse, like a pony - but shiny. Posted by: from: Chesterfield, MI on The apple MacBook 12" is awesome for taking to work or to school and to handle your daily tasks. The screen is great especially considering its only 12", it definitely feels like a compact laptop - but the clean display and traditional Mac keyboard stop it from feeling overly cramped. All of the ports, save one, are gone from this model. The only remaining port is a C USB that charges your very long lived battery. While this is convenient at times, and eliminates some of the space taken up by other ports, having to buy a dongle for every media type (usb, card reader, hdmi) is a bit annoying, however if you're not one to hook up accessories then it won't matter because everything can be handled by the mac's Bluetooth capabilities.

All I expected and more Posted by: from: Hudson, OH on The MacBook is incredibly thin and light, even more so than the MacBook Air. The monitor is really good and this is where it really differentiates itself from the MBA. The keyboard is a new type of mechanism and for those not familiar with it, it works very well.

Great for travel Posted by: from: on I specifically chose this model for its lightweight body and its speed. The computer works perfectly well and I haven't had any issues with it so far, its fast and lightweight. Its also gorgeous but that doesn't really affect its function but its certainly worth noting! I love using this to supplement my iMac when I'm traveling, great for using on planes.

Awesome apple product, love the color! Posted by: from: on I love the lightweight design and the crisp colored screen. The one c-port takes some getting used to but change is what apple is all about.
