    i bought this computer for a present for one of my kids, as always apple is a good product but thier products are way overpriced you can get the same computing power for less than half the price in a windows based computer. products are way overpriced considering the processors are intel same exact ones in windows products half the price, but its what all the kids want. I will say the materials used are top grade fit and finish are good. that being said the charging cable broke within two weeks, but apple did replace it at no charge....and so thy should have

    After spending quite a time reviewing the premium laptops both Windows and Apple, I finally decided to buy this MacBook Pro and I am quite happy with the purchase. 1) Durable, MacBook lasts for minimum of 5 years much longer than Windows based laptops. 2) Safe compared to Windows, no virus issues. 3) Sleek, light, good battery with the standard premium laptops configuration 4) Serves well to my needs. I need this to remote login my office, with web-browsing. 5) Portable very light, I can slip in my leather file holder. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.

    I purchased this MacBook to replace a 2017 Surface Pro with the same specs and so far I am impressed! The hardware feels so much more premium, I really like the design. I was hesitant to purchase this unit because of the keyboard issues but the 4 year replacement warranty gave me some peace of mind. OSX is fantastic, it feels so much smoother than Windows and RAM management seems to work better during heavy usage. Overall, I recommend this unit especially if you can catch it on sale like I did.

    I came from the world of PC and my first impression and expectations was to have stability for creation of music. To my surprise the MacBook Pro not only secured hi resource demanding software it never glitched or blue screened I was really shocked amazed and really happy with the results. I don’t really find usage for the Touch Bar but would strongly recommend anyone to purchase the MacBook Pro for professional results.

    Another great Apple Product

    Nothing beats a MacBook Pro when it come to a laptop. I had to replace my old 2010 version which had a DC/DVD drive. I can't say I miss that part of it but the older version was more solid and seemed more sturdy. The connection plug is shorter and it doesn't light up to indicate that it is plugged in like the older version. Some other changes on this latest version is taking me some time to get used to. I really miss that the Apple logo on the outside of the laptop doesn't light up when it's opened. I don't know why they took way that feature. Maybe to extend battery life. Overall, it's still a great laptop and it's a MacBook Pro after all.

    This is my first purchase of a Mac computer. Although I feel to be a Windows native at heart, the Mac makes life so much easier if you're already an iPhone or iPad user. Being able to AirDrop files between devices has been a huge benefit. As many say, when you're buying a Mac it's not because of the specs. But for the OS. I'm still learning it, but so far I've enjoyed it. I do wish I bought the large sized SSD, but the 128GB is sufficient. Definitely recommend. Look for the sales!

    I absolutely love this laptop whether it is for work, school, or anything else. It gets the job done and then some. I recommend it to people who especially love Apple and already have an iPhone because it will sync with text messaging, iCloud, photos, and everything! I bought this for school but find myself using it every single day for leisure as well. This is the baseline model of the MacBook Pro, but I didn't find the need for an upgrade simply based on a touch bar. Faster processor is a different story though. If you don't need anything bigger or more powerful, look no further. They're already expensive enough.

    Thank you Best Buy for offering such an amazing deal on the MacBook Pro (got mine for $999 compared to $1249 at the Apple Store). I was looking for a good laptop for school and wanted to have one that was compatible with my iPhone so I chose the Macbook Pro because it was recently updated. Only cons of this product would be that you have to be wary of what you do around it because of the butterfly keys, which makes it easier to have crumbs slip in and that you MUST buy a USB C to USB converter to connect things like a flash drive. Also with a case on the Macbook Pro can get dusty.

    I decided to go with a MacBook Pro when my $1300 HP spectre overheated and the motherboard was burnt. I have always heard great things about the Macs in terms of reliability, so I thought that I could get over my PC preference just for the sake of having something that would last 5+ years. It came (brand new, not open box) with a broken microphone and one of the Micro USB ports only works sometimes. Apple is supposed to be fixing it for free since its under warranty, but I’ve been waiting until the end of the semester to send it in.

    As has been stated about a trillion different times, this laptop is overpriced. If you care about the best literal value for your money, stop looking at Apple products. Where this laptop truly shines is its ease of use, especially for students. It has amazing battery life, a well-designed efficient UI (which is Unix-based for your computer science people out there who want to use the command line), and great support. If you have other Apple products such as an iPhone this laptop becomes even better because every connects seamlessly between the devices.

    I purchased this computer to make movies and videos with the i movie app thinking it would be easy. WRONG. I have been trying for three days to upload A two minute video to facebook with no luck. Unless you have a bachelors and masters degree in computer science I would look elsewhere. The computer tells me the upload was successful but the video appears nowhere. Just wondering what Universities offer the i movie course and for how many years. The computer works great for surfing the internet but the i movie is a complete joke.

    No surprises here. This MacBook Pro replaced an older Air that was pressed into limited service. While I’m not crazy about lack of direct USB port an adapter cable solves the problem. I’ve never been a touchpad kind of guy but this one seems more responsive and accurate. The migration tool syncing process was a bit of a challenge but a quickly answered call by Apple Support solved the issues and my data and most applications were copied over. Hey, it’s a MacBook. What could be bad?

    my true love i will never go back to windows The good, its got an amazing screen on it. The weight is much nicer than the macbook air and i love the color! The bad.. you will need a hefty bank account. You will need to buy adapters for any kind of usb ended plug you use which to me isnt the end of the world. Any apple product out there has lately been requiring an adapter of some sort. Mine I needed usb c to usb and I needed usb c to lightning and I needed badly the extra extension cord because these models dont come with the extra long cable. Otherwise I am very happy!

    This is my first Apple computer so I don't have much to say apart from the fact that, just as I fell in love with iPhones, I'm never going back to a PC. I purchased this mainly for video editing but because of its portability and other attractive features it's my preferred device for most other things as well. I store large-sized files in an external hard drive, plug in to work with them, and have not had any issues so far. Please note that this computer has a Micro C type USB port, which means that an adaptor is needed in order to plug in standard USBs.

    I got this puppy for college in mid September. It’s lasted until now BUT has a lot of problems with over heating. This guy isn’t even a year old yet and is way more of a hassle than necessary with NO USB PORTS. Obvious that this computer is made for aesthetic and not actual functionality. I had to get an external fan to keep it functional and not destroy its battery, I don’t do anything hard on this computer at all, use google chrome, and write essays and watch Netflix

    Excellent Computer, Missing Some Features

    The computer is great, lots of processing power for what I need it for which is general browsing/streaming, school work etc. The only thing missing that I found odd which is typical of Apple products is that there is no USB ports, only laptop charging ports and a headphone jack. Interesting to include a headphone jack on the newest MacBook when Apple has done away with the jack set up and moved towards the iPhone jack for headphones instead. Either way, still a great computer, but wish it had USB ports and a port for the lighting cable.

    As someone who grew up with Windows, I have always avoided Apple PC products - until the iPad came out. The slick iOS which always worked everytime you went to do something (without the annoying Updating WIndows' you learn to accept) convinced me that maybe I should look at the MacBook for our daughters school work. She originally wanted the Macbook Air but we learned the reason it was so cheap was because it was becoming obsolete. The new MacBook doesn't disappoint. Great screen, great functionality and great price (when it is on sale) - but hurry as Best Buy is constantly changing the sale price.

    Love my MacBook Pro. It’s true that you have to be mindful of sticking keys but apple put an extended warranty on them so you should be fine. I don’t eat or drink around my computer anyway so I don’t have to worry about crumbs. Treat your stuff well and you should be fine. The computer itself is fast and a dream to use. The keys have short key travel but are satisfying to type on. You should try it before buying to make sure it’s somethinf you’re ok with though. Also the track pad is just excellent.

    Expansion ports are few and weak

    It's a comfortable machine to use most of the time, but using the little plug-in-expansion-port ($49-$99 extra-cost) to do items like USB2-interface and is awkward. It is awkward because the plug-in takes both of the available USB3 ports on the computer (earlier models of this computer had 4 built-in USB3 ports but the current model only has two USB3 ports). The plug-in-expansion-card does have USB3 pass-thru to allow standard usage but the plug-in-espansion-card can be easily dislodged from the computer so you lose the connections.

    Love this laptop. It loads quickly, even with several programs running, and has an amazing keyboard (peep the new butterfly mechanism keys). The touchpad is also great and very responsive. For someone who has been wanting a MacBook Pro for several years, I am glad I waited until 2017 to purchase this particular model because it is fantastic. As a side note, I worried about the Thunderbolt ports being annoying since most chargers/flash drives/other plug ins have not updated to utilize USB-C/Thunderbolt. However, it is not a problem and the thin design, speed, and power of each USB-C port make it worth losing other ports.
