    I assume there is a new model getting ready to be released, because that is how this works!! This particular MacBook is my first Mac computer product. I am transitioning from Windows world, so I am a bit backwards on using the MacBook still. The setup was a lot easier than setting up a Windows, I am so accustomed to using Windows that figuring out user friendly options on the Mac is proving difficult, hopefully I will grasp it soon!! I would recommend Mac to a Mac user and I would recommend Mac to a PC user with a Mac friend!!

    Can't beat a Mac laptop. This is the third one our family has purchased. They last forever with little to no problems. So user friendly. Wouldn't buy any other.

    Excellent quality screen, speed is very fast, need to get upscale router to leverage capabilities. Taking some getting used after 20 years of Windows but worth it. Very intuitive. Cannot wait to play with the graphics. Worth the money.

    I purchased a 2018 Space Gray MacBook Pro 15in with 512gb and love it! I had my old MacBook for 8 years, so I know they are good quality, long lasting computers. It's fast, lightweight, great graphics and programs, also easy to use once you know how to use a MacBook. I'm so happy with my purchase. Thank you.

    As a writer by profession, I require specific things from a computer. Speed, lots of memory accuracy, a strong visual picture, simplicity. I upgraded from an 8-year-old Mac and the difference is night and day. I use this computer daily either at home or at studios. It's the best computer I've owned so far. Love it.

    Fast, fast, fast. Crystal clear display. Powerful. User friendly. Syncs perfectly with all Apple products. It is a beast, but with a hefty price tag. But appears to be worth it.

    Just like every Apple product I've purchased, the Macbook Pro is packaged aesthetically and neatly. Setup was easy. Mojave OS had to be downloaded to bring the OS up to date. The touchpad for ID login is easy to use and accurate. The resolution is crisp and easy to see with vivid colors that are candy to the eyes. Bootup is faster than a Ferrari. I would not hesitate to purchase in the future.

    After six years, I decided it was time to upgrade my MacBook Pro to the latest edition. Very glad I did. Speed is commendable and the graphics much sharper. The touch bar is very intuitive and presents icons for whatever software is being used. Took a bit of getting used to, but I'm using it more and more. Would have preferred to keep USB ports, but Apple loves to change things. Bought an adapter at the same time for many USB peripherals.

    My very first MBP!

    Coming purely from Windows products for nearly fifteen years (never thought it would ever come to this), the switch isn't as hard as I feared it would be. This particular model (MBP 15", i7, 512 SSD, 16GB RAM) is pretty powerful for what I needed it for. I've picked up Photography as a hobby, but soon realized I wanted to do more with it. Comes the decision to purchase my very first Apple laptop. I'm not saying Windows PC couldn't handle what I wanted to do, but after all of my research, I kept landing on MBP, not only for portability, but also for functionality. For the longest time I always worry that switching to a different OS was going to be a pain, but in reality, there'sn't much to it. It does take getting used to, but I really don't find it a whole world of difficult. I do wish that the laptop was a little lighter, because I did not expect it to be quite heavy just by looking at it.

    I've been yearning for this upgrade for a While. The expense was worth it and probly Is worth More. The speed increase and clarity of retina display is totally wow. So much thinner and sleek easier to pack and carry. Pleasantly admire thai I was able to upload my old Adobe Suite from ORIGINAL discs. Solid state internal drive and external drives both old USB and new USB work fantastically. New external DVD CD player and burner cheap, miniature and efficient. Wow to the updated keyboard features. Total like!

    MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018) with i7 chips

    My late 2011 MacBook Pro's graphics card died for the 2nd time and decided it was better to put that repair money into a new MacBook Pro. Lucky for me it was on sale for $2400($400 off list price). It has a 500 GB solid state drive. For the price it should have more GB. Has 16 GB of memory and it can't be upgraded to anything larger. Mac's have always be easier to use and understand than Windows laptops, so I do have to pay the higher price of a Mac. It has 4 "3.1 USB" ports and 1 is used for the power cord. The power cord is not like the older ones with the magnetic attachment that will detach without damaging the cord or computer. If you accidentally pull the cord, it will not come off and might pull the laptop off the table or damage the power cord. :-( It is a much lighter laptop and the sound it puts out is quite surprisingly good.

    The computer that makes you go “Ahhhhhhh”

    I have been using Macs for 32 years, primarily for graphics and programming, as well as downtime entertainment. While they have their ups and downs, in the long run they just keep getting better. I use and manage Mac, Windows and Linux systems. They all work well, but Mac is the only one that makes me go "Ahhhh". The MacBook Pro is svelte and easy to use. It is very light compared to previous versions and other laptops. The monitor is incredibly sharp. I use it with a dock at home along with an Apple Cinema Display which gives me decent screen real estate. The only real pain is that it is limited to USB C (Thunderbolt 3) connections. Then again, it was a pain when they dropped the floppy drive and SCSI, but we got over that like we'll get over this. I say, go get one for yourself.

    This is the first time buying an Apple Computer product. So far, so good. Having a few issues with getting used to using a Mac instead of a PC, but that isn't Apples fault. Once I took a free class from the Apple store, navigating my MacBook became easier. Will be going back for more guidance at the Apple store to get more instruction, hints and tips. The people at the Apple store have been great. Sales people at Best Buy were willing to help and answer questions too, but I don't feel comfortable about taking up their time when there are customers waiting. As far as performance goes, so far I haven't encountered any problems. I maybe not the right person to be reviewing performance since I haven't ever owned a Mac before. But no complaints so far.
