    This MacBook blew my expectations out of the water, decided to go with 15inch rather than 13.3 inch due to better internals and so glad I did this thing is rocket fast does what I need to do and easy to adjust too. Only thing is the battery life could be a touch better, other than that no complaints

    So far the laptop seems good overall. The only complaint I have is that the battery doesn't hold a charge half as well as the 2012 MacBook Pro did.

    Got this for music production. Speed is fast. My only down side is the battery drains faster that I would have expected

    I'm a college student and I own a windows machine and now this Macbook. The things I do on my MacBook is programming, word processing, light photo processing, watching videos, light gaming, and surfing the web. The battery actually lasts long, given that if you're doing light tasks. When putting the MacBook under heavy load, the battery will last you maybe 3-4.5 hours, but if you're doing consistent heavy load, then you'd need a charger with you anyway. Keyboard The keyboard is amazing, although you may have to get used to it in the beginning if this will be your first MacBook Pro. It is quiet compared to my Razer Deathstalker keyboard (just for reference).

    Have had MacBooks since switching over from PC around 2004. Yes, PC has gotten way better since, but Mac's security, intuitive nature and the fact that the computer isn't seemingly hijacked by Microsoft for an update every month, helped. Also, that my 2009 17inch MacBook Pro ran like a perfect Nasa mission for 10 years was an eye-opening plus. That, as multiple friends and family members went through 2-3 PC notebooks each during the same timeframe. That all being said, Apple certainly had its issues too with keyboards specifically on MacBooks, also shady phone battery clocking and other sad issues that always crop up when the greed of Wall Street forces companies to punish consumers in the name of profit and shareholders. Anyway, I digress, this machine has to my view, totally overcome the bumps and bruises of some of the recent MacBooks. The data migration was a snap and the machine runs fabulously. Graphics are super fast, processor is lighting quick and for those that complain about the new USB setup, whatever. A simple adapter doesn't even slow me down. In short, the flatter keyboard took a little getting used to, but I like it now and the machine, after the first month, has met or exceeded my expectations. I'm a film and TV professional that outs a lot of pressure on a notebook and this machine can handle everything I've thrown at it.

    Keyboard is a deal breaker

    Please note that three stars is my lowest score for a product that is intact and working. This is roughly equivalent to a lot of the one star reviews you may have seen. Yes, the product works and is manufactured well. But the unnecessarily thin design has unacceptable disadvantages. Cooling is compromised, so performance is throttled. Ports are gone, so you're living in dongle land. The battery life obviously could be much better if the chasis we're 50% thicker. And most importantly, the keyboard is reduced to almost imperceptible travel. It's so sensitive that you can't even touch your fingers to the keys while they're waiting to type another letter. It's marketed as a PRO laptop. The PRO model is not supposed to be the thinnest or lightest in a company's lineup. It's supposed to give up some of that in favor of usability and power. Things like a wide array of ports, a battery that lasts all day and more, and cooling that is good enough to allow the CPU and GPU to run full speed for minutes at a time, repeatedly. Full speed doesn't just mean 100% utilization; it means 100% of that processor's rated throughput - ie no throttling. I don't expect any laptop to sustain that for hours with no break, but an expensive "Pro" laptop should be able to sustain it for several minutes with no trouble, and do that over and over throughout the work day. But the compromise in this "ProAir" MacBook that is simply not acceptable for me is the keyboard. I've used microwave ovens with better keys than this thing has. If you haven't had the chance to try one yet, unroll two sheets of aluminum foil on a cushion, one on top of the other. Hold your hands over them and pretend to type. Every time a finger contacts the foil and you didn't mean to type that key, head over to the backspace key. And if you contact the foil again on the way there, backspace some more when you get there. This computer's keyboard doesn't feel exactly like that, of course, but it feels every bit as good as that. And we haven't even started on the key repeat issues I learned about when I googled it. People who keep this computer and use it every day must have some very important reason to stick with it, because it's drawbacks are enormous! And this is coming from someone who has avoided Windows for decades, but needs to run Adobe software. I'm not at all happy to be on a Windows laptop, but at least it's a high-quality machine with full-fledged professional features, that is comfortable and productive to use all day.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
