Customer Reviews
Excellent for an SSD upgrade...!!!,
I bought one of these almost 2 years ago with a 500GB HDD. It's been working beautifully but began to get a bit slower after numerous MacOS updates. I solved the problem by upgrading the original 500GB HDD with a 1TB SSD. Now it boots up and i'm online in well under a minute. These Unibody design MacBook Pros (Core i5 Intel) are excellent for an SSD upgrade - the difference in speed is mind boggling! The battery will also last a lot longer as the older spinning HDD technology uses a lot of energy. SSDs use very little energy and generate less heat by comparison. A brilliant purchase for the upgrade fanatic. p.s. They'll also take 16GB of RAM...!!!

A good buy at the second attempt,
I ordered this MacBook for use as a music studio with an Access Virus synth. Its 8GB RAM and 1TB hard disk make it good value for money. I was impressed with the speed of delivery, but unfortunately the first item was anything but A1 condition: the internal mic, speakers and sound input/output didn't work at all. Moreover the cover glass on the screen was obviously a replacement with clearly visible dust and debris on the inside. But Morgan Computers customer service department was excellent, organising a speedy collection and delivery of a replacement MacBook. The new one works perfectly and is now making music. Altogether a good buy at the second attempt.

Good kit, nice.,
I've wanted an Apple laptop for a while (once you have their 'phones and a desktop they've sort of got you), but have been put off by the price. This model is well made, with a serious keyboard which is a pleasure to type with. Unlike newer offerings it comes with an adequate selection of ports and a DVD drive - very useful. Apple's touchpad has some quirks, like an inability to use the right corner to right click as one would with a Windows laptop. This can be done with a mouse though, and there are some new (for me) party tricks to compensate. Battery life is not as long as I expected given the machine's weight. Not a problem for me though. The software is Sierra, I replaced this with the latest, Mojave (10.14.1) immediately, and without problems, it takes forever thougo-h. Also loaded Open Office as I've always used this open source word processor. Again no problems. Delivery was prompt, the machine does not arrive in one of Apple's oh-spretty boxes, but I'm after the machine, not the box. No documentation either, but Apple seem to provide little more than 'Plug in, switch on, do what you are told' instructions anyway. All in all an excellent machine supplied at a price I could afford.
