    Slim and fast!

    I've been using Macs for about 5 years now and had a 2014 one and was waiting for them to go on sale again. Grabbed this one for $200 off no need to wait for black Friday. It's extremely slim and lightweight. Only thing I dislike is the fact it only has two usb c ports and the facts there are literally only 2 usb C ports. But I also purchased a hyperdrive so I'm good on ports forever. Battery life is great and it took. little getting used to but the keys are very fast and cut down. Overall I love this machine. Once you go Mac you never go back!

    Happy new Mac user

    I needed a new laptop for grad school, and since I already have an iPhone and Apple Watch, it made sense to look at a Mac. That’s how they get you, I guess. This laptop really is lightning fast which was my top priority. Being able to connect all three of my Apple items is also a huge plus for me. It’s so intuitive and since I’m already used to my iPhone, the learning curve was basically non-existent. I’m sure a cheaper laptop would have gotten the job done, but this one has me convinced I’ll be a Mac user for life.

    As a longtime Apple product owner, I have been skeptical to buy the new MBP. My previous MBP was a mid-2012 and showing some age (typical laptop problems, mostly related to overheating). Having done my research, I was concerned about the reported issues, mainly keyboard issues and frustrations over lack of USB ports, etc. After buying it, I have had NO problems and LOVE my new Macbook Pro! It's light weight, fast paced... I'm very happy I upgraded!

    This computer is amazing. I highly recommend it. I have been using an HP computer that was so slow and lagging I can no longer take it. So I got up and went to Best Buy and bought me a Mac pro. It is different than most computers I've ever used. But it's very efficient networks quickly. I am told these computers will last for a while so I sure am hoping so. Thank you for recommending this computer. Very easy to follow especially if you've never used a computer. There are many more things I need to learn about it to make it more efficient.

    I absolutely love this MAC. I upgraded from an old 2014 MacBook Pro and I am very happy. PROS: - Super ultra portable - gorgeous screen - very spacious and comfortable keyboard and trackpad - great battery life CONS: - only one USB C port - get a mini dock :) - a little slower compared to more powerful MACs If you are looking for a gorgeous, ultra portable with a very decent performance track record look no further

    I'm a Windows person making a foray into the Mac world. I didn't like feeling inept whenever I used my sister's or friends' computers. This it is easy to work with (I'm just a little bit mystified here and there). I like the feel of it....I've already done some air travel and it is easy to travel with. I think as a true laptop (not trying to be a tablet) it will work well at conferences where you might not have a table to sit at.

    Bought 2 of these for our 2 teenage boys for Christmas. Great size, super lightweight and fast. They were both SUPER excited when they opened their presents. Also, huge shout out to all of the Heritage Trace Best Buy employees. We live 45 min away and have 3 BB's closer to us, but the Heritage Trace BB employees always give top notch customer service! We won't use any other Best Buy locations as the customer service we receive at this location far exceeds any other BB we've been to!!

    Great Laptop For High School/College

    This laptop has served me extremely well for all my student needs. It is fast, light, has great battery, and a pleasure to use. I also love typing on the butterfly keyboard. I would definitely recommend this laptop for all students looking to buy a reliable laptop. (Had an issue with the charging port, which was easily fixed by googling the issue—solved by resetting the SMC, by holding down Shift+Control+Option+Power.)

    Another excellent Apple product

    As an owner of several Apple products, I have to come to appreciate their high quality. This MacBook Pro is no exception. It is working without issue. My primary disappointment is that the new charging connector has no light indicating whether it is charging or whether it has completed charging as my previous MacBook Air did. While I miss the magnetic charger connector, that is not such a big deal. But I did rely on the light to indicate its progress. On the MacBook Pro there is a chime sound to indicate that it has started charging but it is not enough.

    I am so impressed with my new computer and I absolutely feel this was the right purchase for me ! The computer is lightweight and very fast and has many extra cool features that I was unaware of. I bought the computer on a holiday special and I feel that i got a pretty decent price For purchasing a MAC. Since I am new to using a Mac I feel that the ease of use has been pretty good transition

    I had an Acer Chromebook that wasn't doing the job for me in college lectures. It always disconnected to wifi, and was extremely slow. So, I went out and got a macbook, and it was everything I didn't know I needed! Battery life is long, charges fast, connects to wifi easily, it's very light weight and portable. Plus it comes with so many apps on its own (imovie, antivirus, etc.) and holds all my pictures. Wish it came with a lightning to USB adaptor, but you can pick up one at Best Buy for $10. Love my laptop!

    I am very happy with my MacBook Pro so far. We have purchased several MacBook Pros from Best Buy over the years. My only disappointment with this model compared to my older model that died is that I no longer have the disc player and USB slots so I will have to transfer everything a different way. I understand it is an improvement in technology, but it will be another expense to transfer data. Despite my one disappointment I still give this computer five stars as I know it will live up to my expectations just as our other MacBook Pros have.

    Got this computer for my son to take to college for his graduation present. He loves it and has taken it everywhere he has went since I gave it to him. Macs are great computers to begin with and he had it set up and ready to go that night. It can very well packaged and was shipped quickly. I am very happy to have Apple Care purchased with it for if he needs help with it away from home.

    Good Purchase

    The Product is solid. Very good replacement for my 2013 MacBook Pro 15 inch retina. The build quality is top of the line. The only down side is 7th gen U-series processors have only 2 cores. It is very fast if you use macOS and do not play games. But using some productive software or running virtual machines, it will show its limitations. With the quad-core upgrade coming with 8th gen cpu next year, performance could increase significantly. Wait till then if you are planning on gaming, video editing, or running virtual machine on this device.

    I purchased this laptop open-box and saved more than $150 dollars. I always buy my electronics from Best Buy. This is my third Mac laptop and I am always pleased with the quality of the product and the simplistic efficiency of its software and user interface. There are no complaints here. I would recommend this product to anyone going to college or needing a laptop that they want to last more than a year. (I usually keep my Mac laptops for at least 3-4 yrs before I upgrade to a new edition or model.)

    I purchased the Mac Book Pro for my son who will be attending his freshman year at college this fall. I was impressed by the small size of the laptop and the resolution on the screen. The colors are sharp and vibrant. The computer is fast and the battery lasts a long time. We added Office and the extended warranty plan so my son could complete his assignments and have peace of mind knowing that if something went wrong with the laptop it would be covered. The salesman was friendly and knowledgeable.

    Bought this laptop to replace my 2009 MacBook. The MacBook Pro is fast, compact and has great display. Very solidly built, just like my old MacBook. A pleasure to use. My only criticism is the lack of ports. There are only 2 USB-C ports and a headphone jack. For what these laptops cost I think Apple could have at least provided one USB 3.0 port. In order to use any external devices like flash drives and external hard drives you need to purchase an adapter (which I did). That aside I definitely recommend this laptop.

    My parents purchased my first MacBook for me to use my last year of middle college, before I leave for the university. I have really enjoyed using my MacBook Pro. It is so much different than using the regular Windows computer. There are so many options on it. I'm learning new things about this laptop all the time. I'm glad my parents purchased it before I leave for college. I will have an entire year to learn this operating system before college. I'm glad they did this for me. It makes it a lot easier for my transition.

    Nice New Mac 13"

    Once you go Mac, you'll never go back! Upgraded from my 2010 15" MBP to this new (open box) beauty. I love the lightweight and smaller form factor. I was a little concerned that the SSD and the RAM were both soldered on the motherboard now, making upgrades virtually impossible for the end user. I took that as a trade-off for the small size and the lighter device. I'm not sure why the trackpad is so much larger than the one on my old 15" MBP though. It seems like a waste of real estate, but maybe someone from Apple had a reason for this.

    A powerful machine

    This was returned, because I just couldn’t stand the thought of not getting the same model with Touchbar. Transitioning from an IPad to a MacBook is about as easy of a transition as your going to get. For the average user, this is an incredibly nice computer; probably more than needed. But I am in it for the long haul, so ultimately I had to get what I wanted. This machine is powerful enough to do so much; I just need to learn its capabilities & mine!
