    Love it!

    Customer service-0/5 stars. All 3 representatives couldn't seem to figure out why I didn't receive a tracking number or where my package was. One said it was shipped and didn't update on their end, the second (I swear he was on his personal cell phone because it kept cutting out) said it was lost, the third said they ran out. Nobody gave me a straight answer... When it did arrive... I loved it. It's gorgeous, slim and it's not slow like people say. I got the clear Speck case to go with it. Definitely a different feel from my MacBook Pro! Love it! 5/5 for the laptop itself.

    Great laptop, if it's what you're looking for

    This laptop is absolutely perfect as a portable/travel machine. I use it to do some light coding work or connect into my primary computer for heavy lifting. If this is your only computer, and you do stuff other than text editing or spreadsheets, etc., it's probably not for you.

    I'm a fan of Apple products and needed a new laptop. This is small, light and powerful enough for my needs. The keyboard took a little getting used to, but I am happy with it now.

    What it lacks in size and power...

    |
    Posted .

    Ok, first of all I’m not someone who does a lot of online reviews of products I buy. But that said Best Buy kept sending me emails saying that if I reviewed the product, I’d get some more bonus points. So here goes… First off, I’ve been a Mac user for over a decade. I’m not “anti PC” just pro Mac. I also use an iPhone, iPod and iPad so I feel it best to keep everything in the same “family” for lack of a better word. I occasionally travel and commute to my company’s office in the city (Washington D.C. if anyone wants to know or cares), so portability is pretty important. I’d gotten and had been using a 13” retina MacBook Pro, which I loved, but it was a bit heavy and after picking this one up in Best Buy and comparing the two, I figured I’d try this one. And if I didn’t like it, this and the retina MacBook Pro are the same price, so I could always return it and go with what worked (albeit at a heavier footprint). A few caveats before I go into the pros and cons of this MacBook. I’m using the 2016 model, which, from what I can tell, has a few advantages over the initial 2015 model. Of note, the processor speed and battery life are the two main improvements. The Good: - Size/Weight – These are made to be portable. This is smaller than my iPad Pro (larger model). This weighs in just a shade over 2 lbs. so you can carry it around and nearly forget you’ve got it in your hand. - Screen – Having come from a retina MacBook Pro, I was used to the HD screen and this is no different. Yes, it is smaller than the rMBP, but once you get it out of the store atmosphere (i.e. seeing it next to a rMBP in the store), it’s really not that bad. - Battery Life – I generally keep it plugged in when I can, but this is rated for 10 hours of battery life. It charges fast too. Also I do like the charger, which is more like that of an iPad/iPhone – it’s much more portable than the Mag Safe models that come with the other Apple laptops. - Keyboard – I view this as a positive. Others may not. I like the “less travel” keyboard and appreciate the lack of sound it makes. Some like this – others don’t. I feel that this will become the standard for Apple laptops, so I’d get used to it. - Force Touch Trackpad – I had this on my rMBP as well. I also use one of the new trackpads with my iMac and love it. I’m always amazed that it’s not actually moving and it’s just the haptic feedback that’s tricks me into thinking it’s been pushed. The “Not So Good” - The USB-C port. There’s only one. If you’re used to the other Apple laptops, you’ll notice (and perhaps miss) the ports. I do a lot of photography, so not having the SD card slot there is a bit of a pain, but you can buy a USB adapter for $19 which works for most things. I’d have thought that they’d add a second port so you could keep one dedicated for charging and use the other for whatever you need/want. Maybe next year. Still, this appears to be a sign of things to come, so if this will be an issue for you – look elsewhere. - Speed/Processing Power – I personally don’t have a problem with this, per se. This isn’t intended to be a workhorse machine that will replace your MacBook Pro or desktop computer. If you use browser-based applications, Office, light Photoshop, etc. it’s fine. I’ve had no troubles/complaints with this in the least. If you’re expecting it to edit videos, do hard core gaming and so forth – this machine isn’t for you. That’s about it. I think that this design is indicative of the way Apple’s laptops are going to be headed. I personally am satisfied with the machine and all of the things I thought I’d miss (processing power, ports, etc.) I haven’t. Though I have yet to travel with this laptop, I would imagine it will be right at home on the tray of an airplane seat. And it is OS X vs. my iPad Pro’s iOS. This is actually a fully-functioning computer, as opposed to a glorified iPhone. Also, not that it matters much, but this is available in a variety of colors: traditional Silver, Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold (each compliments the variants of the iPhone and iPad’s that Apple offers). Hope that helps!

    Just what I was looking for

    Posted .

    I looked for a small and super light laptop for college. My priority was weight but I also wanted to have good performance. All small and light Windows PC had very poor processors and useless storage. PC that had acceptable specs, were priced same or even more than this Apple MacBook. Since I have a MacBook Pro, I'm used to using Apple OS. Additionally, I have a hate-hate relationship with Windows 10, so this choice was a not brainier. And I'm so glad I did get this little machine. It is perfect for all college school work, it is quick and most important, super light (which I can't say about my textbooks) and super cute. I bought mine as an Open-Box item online. It was perfect, just like new and saved me tons of money. So if you looking for a great little laptop with excellent performance for school work and one that you can throw into your purse, your backpack or just carry it in your hands without feeling like you carrying another piece of brick, stop looking and searching and get this MacBook. Believe me, this is for you and you will love it!

    Great student computer

    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.

    LOVE my MacBook

    Posted .

    I was a little reluctant about switching from a 17' MacBook Pro with all it bells & wiatles but with two little twins running around the house I needed something portable that I could hold in one hand that was light keeping the other hand to control my kids. Plus I travel around a bit & was in need of something portable. Despite reading all the review & I did extensive research on the product. I loved the minimalist design the Reyna screen the new keyboard & trackpad & great speakers, perhaps the best I've heard on a Mac so far. Despite the cons the low processor of the Intel core M & the one port, which I consider a con I made large jump & decided to get it. In the month I have had it all my expectations have been exceeded it is fast enough if your a lie to medium user of tasks , which I am the most extensive apps I use are fir video editing & so far so good. Using dongeks which you will have to use is not a big haste & surfing the net is awesome. In closeting you must understand what type of Mac user you are before you choose any Mac, plus the price is a little on the high side but as a long term investment it will pay itself off. P.S: If you do get this get a case for this little bundle it will benefit you trust me.

    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")

    Best Purchase After Buying 3 Computers

    |
    Posted .

    I bought the surface book, surface pro 4, and this mac book ... I ended up only keeping the MacBook. First of all, it's gorgeous! Secondly, it is the most portable of all of the devices in terms of weight. Lastly, it matches my phone and it is synced so nicely! If you are looking for a portable laptop, this does the trick. If you absolutely need a convertable tablet and laptop then this is not for you. I didn't like the hassle of converting the surfaces into tablets so I always kept them in laptop mode in order to use the keyboard , so that helped me decide that I didn't need a tablet .

    This might sound insane but I prefer this MacBook over the MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar. The MacBook Pro seemed to bulky for me carrying it across campus for 7 hours of the day. The petite laptop is so compact and carries such a punch. It is a lot faster than its predecessor 2015 MacBook with Retina Display. You will not regret the purchase. If you are having a hard time in deciding on what color to get, let me break it down. If you are conservative and old fashioned, get the silver. If you like a seamless design between the display and the actual unibody of the laptop, get the space gray. If you are very vibrant, vocal, artistic and like to have color in your life, get the rose gold. Last but not least, gold. I purchased the gold because I like the low key champagne gold. It is for someone who likes to add flair to their look without attracting major attention. WHO THIS LAPTOP IS NOT FOR HIGH END GAMERS EXTREME VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE ENGINEERS ETC....

    Totally worth it!

    I use my computer everyday with school and work. The battery life is amazing and if it gets super low it charges back up quickly; I never have to worry about me not being able to use it because it dies. I love the size as well it fits perfect in my backpack and still gives me plenty of room to put my school supplies in it. The desk at school are so tiny but my laptop fits perfect. I would definitely recommend this laptop to any college student or someone that works a lot on their computer.

    I finally bought myself the latest version of MacBook. 12" - as light as MacBook Air 11" and I love the rose quartz color. Although I have a Mac Desktop and love it too, this enables me to work from anywhere. Just got a new job using MVMare and I am using my MacBook when traveling to other offices or working from home.

    I bought a macbook 2016 and it has opened up a whole new world. I am 50+, have been using an HP for 7 years and never knew the possibilities that were out there and accessible. I do now. Best purchase I've made in my adulthood.
