This review is from: Apple MacBook Pro 17" Laptop, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz 4GB DDR3 500GB HDD Bluetooth Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard MC226LL/A
Pros: Very clean computer. Works as the summary said it would. No scratches, no glitches.
Cons: Shipping took a very long time. I called them during the delivery week to inform them I would be out of town and they STILL sent it back- to the other side of the country. They sent it back quickly, but the most recent update was also from nearly two years ago, so I had to wait ANOTHER week while Apple sent me a hard copy of Snow Leopard, then upgrade that to Mavericks. I could have easily bought a PC at the store for half the price and none of the trouble.
Other Thoughts: It's a great item- the computer runs very smoothly, just like I want it to, and I got everything I ordered in good shape. The shipping and upgrade problems were frustrating, but to be fair, customer service was very willing to work with me to sort everything out quickly. 3/5
