Default Apple OS

Laptop runs pretty good on Linux 18. Got a Macbook Pro for nothing. Was told the motherboard was bad but turns out the ssd has failed. Superfast on Linux though. Got a new copy of the OS coming to attempt to recover the drive.

I got one. Needs a new battery. I suppose I could get the battery AND replace the HD with a SSD. That would perk it up. It'd be better than what I am using now. My poor sis went for a very low price Lenovo. What a POS. It can take over a minute to load a program, and exhibits random nonsense behavior. Whoever designed this, and worse, whoever decided to waste good resources making this laptop should all be shot.

this is an old macbook pro, 2012. the ssd is shot, 128gb. I can get one for less than $50. This thing loves Linux, it flies! Ordered the special screwdriver to take the back off, proprietary tools. Not friendly to work on... I like the design, Clean lines, nice finish. Touch pad to big though. Impressive speed. I'm going to get it working correctly again then see how I like it, may even keep it.

Wife bought a Lenovo a while back, never again. Screen hinge broke and killed the screen. Now using it connected to a hd tv, using the tv as the monitor. Pretty fast too. It's an i7

Notebook didn't have it's own cd/dvd drive. Picked one up for $10 today. A slim LG drive.
