1 out of 5 eggsPiece of junk !!!!

Pros: case is sturdy

Cons: Trackpad sticks all the time....it will drive you crazy....I will never consider buying an Apple laptop again......it is a waste of money. I would rather have a Toshiba laptop any day of the week. Apple is not the high quality I expected !!!

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product, Newegg drops the ball.

Pros: It's a MacBook Pro. Enough said. No defects except for some red "stuff" on the power cable which I scratched off.

Cons: Newegg dropped the ball here, not Apple. The MBP is described as having OS X 10.6 installed, but upon booting I realized it was OS X 10.5.x (I don't remember the version as I promptly installed Lion, but it wasn't even the final 10.5.x version). A couple screws on the bottom of the body were lose, I managed to lose 1 of them before realizing and tightening the remaining loose screw. Although it was re-certified I expected it to come with a restore disk (at least the version of the OS installed), but it didn't.

Other Thoughts: It seems that whomever was in charge of recertifying the device wasn't paying much attention (LOOSE SCREWS!?) to quality. And Newegg's failure was to ensure that the MPG matched the product description (incorrect OS X version).

4 out of 5 eggsGood...but not the second coming of the laptop.

Pros: Price!!

Cons: No documentation
No accessories
Came in a generic box

Other Thoughts: There was some minor scuffing on the lid out towards the edges, not too bad but noticable. When opened up however, looked like brand new! Without any documentation it made the first few hours somewhat difficult until i realised that the apple online documentation resources are phenominal!!
Learning a new OS is proving to be the most challenging aspect after 15 years of windows. Old dog + new tricks = long steep learning curve.
The platform itself is proving to be incredibly stable. it chugs along no matter what I have thrown at it.
I don't think the Mac is the end all beat all of the computing world, some of the functions seem counterintuitive, but I do think it is a better platform...at least for my uses.
I rated it 4 eggs for scuffing, lack of original packaging and documentation, and lack of a more detailed description ( comes w/ 2x2GB ram and I ordered a 4GB stick which had to be promptly returned for 2x4GB sticks ).
