Apple upgrade your computer constantly with no indication of what software they are going to lock you out of beyond if you happen to open that software. My computer has basically been obliterated and surprise, surprise, "I can buy replacement software in the Apple store". Never again will I buy Apple. If they can design computers they can inform you as to what damage is going to be done if you install their latest upgrades.
3 failures in 6 months
In the 6 months of owning my mac (It was purchased via the refurb store. )it had the screen and the keyboard replaced.
When the screen failed AGAIN, they agreed to replace my computer.
Their options were;
1. Pay full price for a new one and they will refund me the difference once my broken mac is inspected (ie several week later)
2. Send the Mac back for inspection and if they are happy, they will send me a replacement.

Macc Book Pro With Touch Bar
Brilliant features. Stylish look, very light and quick to start up.No noise.Just love it. Bit difficult to operate if haven't used before but once knows everything,won't look for any other product
Purchased in July 2020 at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $1,799.00.
transitioned from Windows to this one and i LOVE it
Okay so I have used Windows for a long time and just last year, I transitioned to Mac OS and I didn't had any problems, boot up takes 10 seconds even there are so many files. Touchbar is an additional feature! This recommended for professionals
This is one of my favourite apple products! It’s very well built and extremely reliable with a good battery life. I use mine for work and I wouldn’t rely on any other laptop.
Love my Mcbook - very fast very reliable
I bought my mcbook last year for personal use. I started working from home from March this year. I have been using this laptop for more than 50 hours a week and it has performed so well. Highly recommended. Very reliable and fast. Only thing that concerns me is it occasionally automatically goes blank- but it has happened only 3 or 4 times in past 8 months.
Purchased in October 2019 at Costco for $1,350.00.
Perfect for school
I got a MacBook Pro for my daughter at the start of year 9, she is now in year 11 and it has no problems. I got another one for my other daughter at the begining of this year.
Purchased in January 2020 at JB Hi-Fi for $1,500.00.
This is perfect
I have used many laptops but like MacBook pro, I never used. This laptop is compatible. I never had any problems with it and everyone I know recommends this laptop to me. After I use it for sure I recommend it for everyone.

Poor service from Apple regarding my warranty claim
Firstly I have been reasonably happy with my Macbook Pro. My complaint is about the service received from Apple. I was on my second charger (they don't seem to last) when I noticed an acrid electronic smell. My second charger has died. That's OK it is only 18 months old purchased by me brand new from Apple Miranda store, and under consumer law is entitled to be replaced. Due to Covid-19 there are no Apple stores open, I have to drive 30 minutes to Padstow to a third party service centre and drop it off. No problem totally reasonable considering...the Covid-19 Pandemic, we all have to make adjustments, I get it. 1 week later please come pick it up, it is most certainly broken and warrantable, however we cannot replace it as it has no serial number as it is an accessory, we the third party repair centre have no authority to replace it. Obviously not happy with this outcome. So we drive over and pick up the damaged charger. 1 week later however I get a notice, after complaining about the process, saying you can claim against your original macbook. Please for the third time drive over to Padstow 30 minutes each way and drop off your laptop so we can grab the serial number and attempt to make a claim against the laptop. Then wait 1-2 weeks for the charger to come in and then you can drive 30 minutes each way for the 4th time to pick up your $119 charger. I tried to have the Apple representative see reason and asked that seeing as I have the original purchase receipt for the charger purchased 18 months ago from Apple store, Miranda and that I have presented the charger for assessment, which concluded the charger was faulty and also provided a photograph of my macbook serial number as well, could you not just send me a new charger. Nope not possible, we don't have stock at head office as it is a legacy product, and also there is a 2 week wait at your local apple store for an assessment, which you will need to undertake again, that is all we can do for you. I honestly felt like I was in a scene from Fawlty Towers. This is supposed to be a premium product with premium service. This has not been my experience.
Purchased in August 2018 at Apple Physical store for $119.00.
Looks beautiful and functions great as well
- Quality build and aesthetically pleasing
- Touch Bar is a nice addition
- Ready to go outside of the box
- Ability to run both Windows (using VM) and Mac
- Only 2 USB-C ports (one of which is required for charging)
- Pretty expensive at almost $2,000 for only 128GB of SSD memory
- No touch screen...

The best laptop I've had
The best laptop I've had. The materials very durable and it is still fast after 5 years.
It is still looks like brand new.
Does everything I do for office work or studies.
The only minus that coating on the screen started wearing out after 4 years, but apple replaced the screen for free.
Purchased in October 2015 at The Good Guys for $1,889.00.
So smooth and integrated. Elegant
You are either PC or Mac. This was my transition machine and I will never go back.
The smooth robust OS, beautiful build quality, compact size and huge performance reflect premium design and R&D.
I have used several high end PC laptops and none come close.
The integration of all apple products is a highlight.
They are expensive but unlike PC are not redundant in 6 months.

Apple Macbook Pro 13inch
Want a small but powerful laptop? Then look no further than the Apple Macbook Pro 13inch.
At 13inch, its small yet portable and allows you to use it for various purposes, whether it be for watching a movie, playing games or doing work, it won't fail to impress.
Being a working individual who conducts work online, I cannot complain since this product has made my life easy and convenient. The added features of a touch bar, high end encryption and amazing performance allows you to experience the best quality that you desire.
Love this macbook and would recommend it to everyone.
Purchased in April 2017 at Apple Online store for $1,975.00.
Macbook fan - what a Gem
Had my macbook for just over 2 years now and can't complain, what a wonderful product. It does everything it is designed for and even more. Great speed, slick design, works very well. Super fast chaging, the only thing is it get a tad hot but overall absolutely wonderful product.
Purchased in December 2017 for $2,800.00.
Love my Macbook!
Lightning fast and super easy to use. Don't have to wait long for it to be ready to use and the Touchbar makes it so easy to find whatever you need to use.
Purchased in June 2019.
Great product. Love it a lot
Being a working individual who manages business online, this product is a great device that makes everything easy. Its easy access system such as Touch ID, password storing means that I can get to work faster each time I open my laptop.
Purchased in December 2018 at Apple Online store for $2,700.00.
Not good as my old MacBook
A little disappointed because the keyboard had problem and also the replacement of that caused other problem. I hope they will fix it because I was so happy with the old MacBook that lasts for 6 years!
Purchased in June 2017 at Apple Online store for $2,000.00.
I love my macbook
This is my first MacBook, and my previous laptop was a had a 19" screen and was not a Mac. I love my Mac, as I have other Apple products and liked that I could sync all my products. I have a small business and use it extensively for my business. I like that it is just the right size, not heavy, and is slim line.
I have not had any problems with my MacBook so far.
Purchased at Myer Retail Stores.
The base of the laptop would click at times. I took it to apple store castle towers and the guy said they could open it up in a special dust free environment. I was not happy with this resolution offer. So, I had the guy put the problem in writing and took it to JB HiFi for an exchange. I had to buy a terabyte so that they could temporarily load the content into it. In hindsight, it would be better to buy it from apple store itself. The stress of having to go through it, it was not worth it.
Questions & Answers
Hi I’m thinking of buying a MacBook Pro 13-inch 2014 model second-hand
What things should I check before buying it
-e.g does it overheat
Neither of my children’s have ever overheated and they use them for the full school day. If they have been used by a student especially a middle school student check for dints and scratches that might look like it has been dropped. My youngest has dropped hers twice and it still works well but one of her friends has a couple of keys that don’t work properly after dropping it.
grea advice thks
