Rating: 5/5 My first “jump” into the Pool of buying a Used Mac…! October 21, 2023 - What a surprise to find an “honest description” of the MacBook PRO’s condition. My purchase of a “used” product [mid-2012 MacBook PRO] from OWC was a first for me. I was filled with trepidation lest I be disappointed as to the actual delivered product being “as described” in the listed in graduation of Used equipment. But much to my delight it was “better than expected…!” My “Used - Very Good Condition” MacBook PRO was; but for one moderate, harmless “ding,” a thing of Beauty…! And aside from the looks, I’ll add that it functioned smoothly with the fluidity I’ve come to expect from APPLE computers. The enhancements that were installed by OWC [added RAM & SSD] were spot on perfect for allowing this “older Model” to function seamlessly. In case I have not made it clear in my statement above. I’ll say it in a straightforward manner: “I AM A HAPPY OWC CUSTOMER…!” JDYS

Reviewer: EnchantingSquirrel-83842
Rating: 5/5 Very, very happy with my purchase January 24, 2023 This is actually my second MacBook purchase from OWC. When my younger son needed a Mac for his coding course, I gladly handed over the first one. He loved it -- and kept it. But this one is every bit just as great -- speed, clarity and versatility. I have a desktop iMac but wanted the versatility of the portable. The price was great, too, as I snagged a Black Friday special pricing. So, once again, thank you OWC for a quality product at an awesome price. Oh, as a special bonus, my son graduated, got a killer IT job thanks to that first MacBook. So he surprised me by gifting me the total purchase price of my new one. Proud Mom!
