Apple MD103LL/A 2.3 GHz 15.4
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Very Solid 05/16/2013

This review is from: Apple MD103LL/A 2.3 GHz 15.4" MacBook Pro (New 2012 Model)

Pros: Outstanding build quality. Very nice screen (mine is 1680x1050). Trackpad is the best in the industry, as usual. Battery life: watching video, backlight at two thirds, over six hours. The quad core i7 is ridiculously fast. This processor is choked by a hard drive. Put 16 GB of ram in, and an ssd if you can afford it.

Cons: No HDMI or eSATA ports. Mini Display Port to HDMI adaptors are really cheap, but I wish you could just plug an HDMI cable in. Mountain Lion is ok, but I cant help missing Snow Leopard. The Mountain Lion recovery partition is touchy and sometimes fails. You have to jump through some hoops to get a copy of Mountain Lion onto a USB drive or DVD, Apple goes out of their way to make it hard.

Other Thoughts: Overall it's an outstanding laptop, whether you run OSX or Windows. It's not cheap, but quality rarely is.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Says it is compatible with Macs, but they lie. Center button, side buttons, scrolling do not work, no drivers available from manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Just get a Logitech.
