    "New Student great for a beginner....So that brings me to my this purchase, my sister was in need of a new computer (because of an old dead Windows machine) for her college needs, I saw this one on the sale and I jumped right away to buy it, so far the performance is great, it is not as great as the MacBook pro but then again this is thin and light unlike MacBook and is enough to fullfil the needs of a college student or even if you want to do coding etc"

    "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...8GB of onboard RAM is more than enough for most people but this amount of memory makes it so that you can run multiple programs and change between them or use them both concurrently without any lag time or waiting for something to load or heaven forbid you see that dreaded pinwheel"

    "Ok I admit the laptop is amazing as far as processing And just surfing and browsing the computer itself, but Apple has just made a really bad look for themselves by causing a more annoying and extra step for us to go out of our ways to have to buy the USB port outlets that are compativable with these new MacBooks...The only thing I'm not too happy about is that the ports are no longer on the new laptops--Irritated that I have to buy something extra in order for her to be able to plug in her headphones or charge her phone"

    "Glad I bought it...Otherwise, all is OK...In my 50+ years in Information Technology, I have not had any issue with my personal hardware, so I would have to recommend not purchasing refurbished equipment because if you have issues with the hardware you end up investing more money than if you had paid full price in the beginning...I'm not specialist ,but it's the perfect laptop for me"
