Heavily DISAPPOINTED me. It’s the 15 in. unibody, 2.8 ghz, 4gb ram, 500hd, GeForce 9400M + 9600M GT with 512mb, superdrive 8x…
AND the damn thing froze and crashed minutes after I registered online.
Aside from that encounter, the thing “bleeps” randomly. It drove me mad so I searched online to see if people had the same issues and here’s what I found:
So Apple acknowledged the problem and released a Bluetooth and HD firmware for units shipped before June 09
At $2500 a pop (I tried cheesing for the student’s discount but to no avail), one would think Apple had better QA. What sucks too is that the problems occurred to a lot of people.
The only thing differentiating Macs from PCs is the OS and I’ve heard great things about Windows 7. I’m very unbiased and not a fan of either brands. I guess all I wanted was to get my money’s worth.
On a lighter note, I will admit that I enjoy watching the enthusiasm of Mac fanboys on youtube. I love how they do Apple’s marketing work for free. It’s fun to watch the newly converted Mac users unbox their white Macbooks or 13” MBP.
The truth is, I bought this MBP to give as a gift but I learned that they have one already so I ended up just keeping it. That’s probably for the better because I’d be embarrassed to give a friend a broken present.
