Laptop arrived dirty grimy screen and there was actual pet hair in the air vent. Dings and wear are expected for a used computer, BUT if no one even took the time to wipe the outside and clean the screen, how can someone trust that the actual device was refurbished???
It did not go through a normal start up. I had to look up keys to press to get into a start up mode to even set up the computer. The only good experience was getting the money refunded for the actual laptop. The update to the inch MacBook Pro in February was significant.
Indeed, significant is an understatement. Quick thanks to Amazon and Apple Stores for having these immediately available at launch. The primary upgrade to this revision? The processor! Intel has a brand new architecture called Sandy Bridge, and these MacBook Pros are the first Macs to feature this technology. Some have called it some of the most significant changes to Intel architecture since Pentium 4 was introduced. Quad Core processor in a notebook Mac!
I actually chose the inch model for my personal use only Dual Core on the inch , but this inch is replacing an aging iMac at the office to save space and leap over its performance. These Quad Core Chips are amazing. Early benchmarks are showing this entry-level inch, 50 percent faster than the upper end i7 inch MacBook pro from a year ago.
A dramatic improvement. Furthermore, if you're still on a Core 2 Duo machine such as the iMac I am replacing, the performance is as much as 2. At least in terms of the processor. This is most beneficial in processor intensive applications, for consumers such applications are iMovie and Garageband. Professionals will see the new processors beneficial in any professional photo editing, video, or music work.
One downside is that due to cost, the machine still comes with a spinning hard drive standard. That offers plenty of storage, but is slightly slower than a desktop RPM drive and much slower than a new, solid state drive. You do have options. However, what I have decided to do, is simply, when I'm ready, swap out the drive myself.
Other World Computing sells solid state drives compatible. It might not be easy for every user, but for those with some computer experience, it is a fairly easy swap. Then I can install a faster solid state drive, when the more acceptable capacity drives come down a bit in price. You might also choose to do the swap yourself because you can then put the hard drive that was originally in the machine, into an external enclosure, and use it as an external drive for backup.
Of course, any damage you cause to the machine would not be covered under warranty. Therefore, if you have any concern, you might want to see if you can special order from Apple online, or in many situations, you will find the standard hard drive to be acceptable.
After the processor advancement, Thunderbolt is the other great new technology included in this revision to the MacBook Pro. Indeed, it will still function perfectly as a Mini Displayport, for connecting an external display. However, Thunderbolt is more importantly a new interface to connect external devices in the future, such as, external hard drives, HD camcorders, and perhaps even iPads, iPods, or iPhones someday.
Data would then transfer many times faster to and from these devices than it does currently. These devices were not available at the time of the MacBook Pro's launch, but we have already heard that external drives should be available later this year with Thunderbolt connectivity. This gives you the ability to video chat, easily, with other Macs and notably, iPhone 4s and the newest iPod Touch with front facing camera.
The consumer software you expect to be included by Apple is once again here. The average user would be good to go out of the box. They will save you time, when using processor intensive applications. Time in business, saves people money and frustration.
The average consumer might see less gains with this update as physically the MacBook Pro has retained it identical appearance, size, and weight. Nevertheless, under the unibody, improvements have certainly occurred which result in a much faster notebook. The fact that these inch and inch models now include Quad Core Processors standard is really extraordinary.
This is putting recent top of the line desktop performance, into a sleek and attractive Mac Notebook. A breakthrough. Recommended Product! Sure, another generation back was arguably better, but I find this computer to be adequate to my needs right now though it is a disappointment that I can't upgrade the RAM, which definitely limits the lifetime of how long this product will last. It's nice and lightweight, the SD port is useful, and it's powerful enough for me to do fairly layer intensive graphic design work in Photoshop and basic grading in Lightroom.
The keys feel fantastic to type on. The overall design is sleek and pleasing to look at and hold. The force touch trackpad works great. Overall, I feel this is the best laptop I've ever purchased or used. It feels sturdy and reliable, both hardware and software-wise.
The screen just went blank and would not shut down, stayed in a cycle that would bring up some gray screen and then Just turn itself into sleep mode. Not a full shut down and cannot hard reboot. All models, except for the baseline inch model, featured the Touch Bar, a new multi-touch-enabled OLED strip built into the top of the keyboard in place of the function keys. The Touch Bar is abutted on its right by a sapphire-glass button that doubles as a Touch ID sensor and a power button.
The models also introduced a "second-generation" butterfly-mechanism keyboard whose keys have more travel than the first iteration in the Retina MacBook. All ports have been replaced with either two or four combination Thunderbolt 3 ports that support USB-C 3.
All versions can output to a 5K display; the inch models can drive two such displays. The inch models include a discrete Radeon Pro , or graphics card in addition to the integrated Intel graphics. The flash storage in the Touch Bar models is soldered to the logic board and is not upgradeable, while in the inch model without Touch Bar, it is removable, but difficult to replace, as it is a proprietary format of SSD storage.
A GB [a] storage option was added for the base inch model, down from the base GB [a] storage. On July 12, , Apple updated the Touch Bar models with Intel Coffee Lake quad-core processors in inch models and six-core processors in inch models, updated graphics cards, third-generation butterfly keyboards that introduced new symbols for the control and option keys, Bluetooth 5 , T2 SoC Chip , True Tone display technology, and larger-capacity batteries.
On May 21, , Apple announced updated Touch Bar models with newer processors, with an eight-core Core i9 standard for the higher-end inch model, and an updated keyboard manufactured with "new materials" across the line.
A report by AppleInsider claimed that the updated "Butterfly" keyboard fails twice as often as previous models, often due to particles stuck beneath the keys. The fourth-generation MacBook Pro received mixed reviews. On May 4, , Apple announced an updated inch model with the Magic Keyboard. The two Thunderbolt port version has the same Coffee Lake processors, graphics, and maximum storage and memory as the two Thunderbolt port models. The supported external displays was reduced to one, as the previous Intel-based models supported two 4K displays.
Apple addressed many criticisms of the previous  generation  by restoring hard function keys in place of the Touch Bar, an HDMI port,  an SD card reader, MagSafe charging, and a higher base memory. Other additions include a Liquid Retina XDR display with thinner bezels and an iPhone-like notch, ProMotion variable refresh rate, a p webcam , Wi-Fi 6 , 3 Thunderbolt ports, a 6-speaker sound system supporting Dolby Atmos , and support of multiple external displays.
These new models feature a thicker and more-squared design than their Intel-based predecessors. The keyboard features full-sized function keys, with the keyboard set in a "double anodized" black well. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Line of notebook computers.
