    Looking to buy a mac book from mac of all trades. Have bought from them before and was happy with the purchase. My macbook pro is out of date and there is no way to upgrade this thing. I can't update any browsers anymore and my performance is suffering. My current laptop is a 2.5 GHz, 4GB. Has been a great machine for me except now for the update issue/problem. The one I"m looking at is a mac book (not a pro), 2.0GHz - will I see a difference with that? The battery part says, (1+hour) used battery. This is a refurbished laptop. I can't afford brand new. I can call them but does this mean the battery might ONLY last 1 hour?? Anyone have reviews on mac of all trades with this issue?? I have only purchased a desktop from them.

    What did Mac of All Trades say when you asked them what that notation meant? I'd think they'd be the best ones to answer the question...

    I've sold them a few things and have been happy; I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them if I needed something.

    I've had a good experience with them before. Just send them an email for clarification.

    I just got my refurbished MacBook today from Mac.of.all.Trades and the battery needs changing already. I can't unhook the power for a second before it goes black and dies. Diagnostics say the battery is dead, get another.

    I have purchased several MacBooks and iPads from them in the past. As the MacBooks are used, and the one you are looking is a number of years old, do not expect a whole lot from the battery. While they guaranteed them for up to one hour, that's all they test them for. Sometimes you get lucky and get one that lasts several hours, sometimes they're just barely an hour. It's a bit of a crapshoot; I generally get the better batteries, as I live about 45 minutes from their warehouse and pick up my stuff in person.
