Overall: I've Bought this one recently, not from India but from Japan... The pricing that flipkart offers is quite cheap as its original price is around 90k.nnWell to tell about the product, it is a 2012 non retina model which has a 8x superdrive and an ethernet port which are terribly useful for anyone. While the new models which have Retina display neglects these ones and are also priced heavy, so you have to get them externally with additional money which is bad. Well what is the use of laptops which are premium but don't have necessary hardware?nnEveryone is so obsessed with retina display becoz of the bright and striking screen, good processing speed as they are based on flash storage, but take a beating on basic features like dvd drive and ethernet ports and battery life....nnnIts better to go with this model rather than choosing retinas, if money is ur concern, but for all the others who are easy on your pocket u may proceed with retinas and of course buying additional external accessories from apple.nnPROS:n* Sturdy and beautifuln* Good steady battery life( when i used it came upto more or less 6 hours of continous usage like watching videos and just browsing)n* Trackpad is amazing.n* Nice screen (though its a non retina model, its good)n* Good quality camera. Great for video chats.n* Virus free OS ( no need to worry about virus threats).n* It is upgradable( RAM, Hard disk etc can be upgraded while the retinas are not).n* Stereo speakers are good, with a slight amount of bass hanging around songs which cannot be heard from other laptops.n* The Headphone port supports earphone with mic.( i tried my sony earphones with mic which to my surprise worked and u can directly speak through the earphone's mic).nnnCONS:n* Processing speed is average as what you would expect from an i5 with 4 gb RAM.n* Graphics are mediocre, only medium resolution games can be played because of the Intel HD 4000 graphics which has only 512 MB memory( seriously not for Gameboys).n* The two USB 3.0 ports are placed one close to another, u can't use two devices at a time unless it is very small without the body.n* Little bulky than retina models but less when compared to other brands.nn Other than these i have no concern with the MBP and i truly love it.nnFinally this one is not for professionals( like video editers etc) who look to extract maximum performance related to their work but a GOOD laptop for medium users and casual users( Students,etc)...nBUT it packs lot of features for which i am satisfied....nnThey are proving it(Apple) and this piece is worth every bit of your money and u will surely admire it...............
