Rating: 5/5 Very happy with this upgrade to my older MacBook Pro October 23, 2016 When Apple announced MacOS Sierra, I noticed that my current MacBook Pro was no longer supported. I purchased this newer "used" MacBook Pro as an upgrade and I am very pleased. This arrived in very good (if not near perfect) condition and I and now have upgraded it to MacOS Sierra. I have subsequently purchased an OWC two (2) Terrabyte SSD hard drive for this system and am very pleased (if not exstatic) with my new system and its performance.

Rating: 5/5 First time user - will be back! January 6, 2016 I needed a computer for work at home and it didn't matter that it was used. After a bit of searching on line, I found this Mac. It is the perfect at-home computer for those who can do a bit of their own admin. Macs in general are like that. OWC had a very competitive price, and the machine arrived in excellent condition, faster than anticipated. I have had no problems at all. When I need more Apple or Mac used equipment, I will definitely come here!

Rating: 5/5 Used MacBook Pro in perfect condition December 11, 2015 I ordered a refurbished 15" MacBook Pro online for half the cost of a new one and received it within 7 days, free shipping. The MacBook was in perfect condition with upgraded memory and a clean hard drive. My only complaint was that it was delivered with OS X 10.7.5 and had to be upgraded to the latest OS X 10.11. The battery appears to have decent charge life on it still. Overall a good buy considering the newest MacBooks don't have a CD/DVD drive and the memory cannot be upgraded.
