    So I'm literally in Best Buy right now and they have an open box 2015 MacBook for $909 which doesn't have a scratch on it. It's silver and has the setup of 8GB and 256GB SSD. I also have a $100 gift card and $50 coupon for student which would bring this unit to $815 after tax and everything out the door. I originally went into the store looking to buy the MacBook Pro that is for sale for $1200 with the same HD size and RAM and ended up seeing this as I was browsing. Just want to know if this is a good deal and if I should just get it for the savings. I don't do anything too crazy on the computer. Just social media, web browsing, watching videos, word processing and backing up of my iPhone and iPad. I figure if I get this unit I may be able to get rid of my iPad as well. I'm just worried about the performance on this machine. I don't want to get it if it's going to be slow. I would appreciate the feedback of what you guys think I should do.

    Thanks!

    It would not be slow for any of those use cases. Best Buy will let you return it anyways within 15 days I believe.

    Some say video playback on the 2015s can be choppy. Have you seen any of that on yours, or are they all full of it?
