  • Apple,apple,apple, thats the first thing that must have flashed in you mind when you saw this product, so here i have a total breif review on the laptop… ***pros*** 4k video editing with final cut pro x on this thing works like butter, there is heating issue that i am going to go to apple service center to get it checked everyday works like checking mail and is just gr8 the battery is just overpowered, works for around 11-12 hours on continuous work and 8-9 hours when editing the graphics card scores 30 fps in cinebench which is not that bad the performance is also fine, 280 cb processor score on cinebench speakers are really good with perfect bass, its a laptop speaker, dont expect much from it display brightness is 300 nits, which is fine the wi-fi is extremely good, can get a network even from the living room while the router is in the bedroom very thin and lightweight macos is good for school work if you know all the office applications for mac, for eg.pages is word magsafe 2 is the best part good trackpad and keyboard with backlight the storage is fast!, thanks to the m.2 based ssd!
  • Basically i will be comparing this with a regular laptop of similar price range and macbook pro air benefits compared to non apple laptop: # slim and light weight for daily travel # 10-11 hours battery backup on normal usage # apple touch pads are awesome, smooth and responsive compared to any premium laptop # audio quality on speakers is good, but not as loud as my macbook pro 13 # apple front camera works the best in low light, best for low light skype calls # ssd – apps launch very fast despite the low power processor # metal body construction # mag safe charger- if you are really careless this helps very much.

  • You cannot install pirated version but if you install windows 7 or any other version then u can use ms office for free but in macbook there are other apps which are good substitute for ms office apps numbers for excel pages for word keynote for powerpoint and you can convert your numbers file to excel file or csv file same for the pages & keynote so no need of ms office for me.
  • Excellent build quality, not only if the laptop but also of the accessories, the battery life is good, and sound is awesome.
  • 1)the trackpad works like a dream.not like horrible windows with lag and stutter.multi gesture is a dream 2) admittedly the display is not hd.but trust me much better than the much touted hd displays of horrific windows laptops i have used.in the same price range 3)i am not a video editor but i am sure high end editing on 4k etc will be a challenge.but routine like image editing etc will be not an issue.if vfx pro etc is your daily grime look the mac book pro 4)routine work is a breeze..like..so cool the intuitive..experience…more so if you are in to the experience of apple ecosystem..airdrop etc…is very easy to comprehend 5)the built quality and the battery is simply superb.here the low res display helps in easily 10-11 hours of usage.and 2 weeks of standby 6)it is lighter and slimmer even than the new macbook air.
  • But if someone loves that, its a bonus # color options – yes, air is only available in silver, pro comes in 3 color options if you think, all the above justifies the price difference between the pro and air, go for the pro.
  • # ambient light sensor that adjusts brightness automatically ( many people are not aware of this feature) # keep your air closed or leave somewhere idle and check back after 2 or 3 days, you will see battery has dropped less than 3 or 4 % # the best part – mac os, contains all that you need, a neat calendar, todos app, notes, quicktime, mail app etc.

  • Yes, i changed the thermal paste and dusted the fan, now, everything is running even better than ever, even the heating issua is solved!
  • I hope this comment can help to save somebody’s money.
  • But to be very honest , i bought this machine because it adds to my collection of awesome gadgets.
  • Though the graphics is ok from my view, apple could have given better graphics like the radeon vega 8 graphics or intel iris plus or pro for a laptop that is so expensive!
  • The best budget friendly macbook
  • I purchased apple macbook last year in december and it’s been a pretty awesome experience.

Top Negative Reviews

  • Worst of worst product… fragile hardware
  • Problems will be there if you are switching from windows based system – very less space in hard disk, no cd drive, inability to transfer data from mac to your existing external hard disc unless you format it, apps are mostly paid and re unreasonably expensive (no free apps which are available otherwise on google play store, even the angry bird costs rs 400 !!
  • Dead after 1 year two months…
  • A year + 1 day it stopped working and apple has the worst customer service.
  • Utterly disappointed with the product – low quality not expected of the premium product
  • Again macbook start acting dead after 6 more months.
  • The laptop is just dead.
  • My macbook is dead after 1 year when i kept it in cupboard for 2 weeks without use.
  • Laptop dead after 1 year
  • They told me that the motherboard is dead and i have to buy a new motherboard.
  • If u have no financial problems then it is ur choice…
  • Dead macbook exactly a month after warranty ended with no help from apple service
  • Marketing strategy for indian market, if at all has been planned, has been very bad.
  • The cc person informed me that they will do resetting the mac but all in vain.
  • Died in 2 and a half years
