So, I’m listening to Windows Weekly. and for the 8 millionth time, Leo just HAD to say that he thinks that “Intel macs are a thing of the past”. Oh come on. Why, then, are refurbed old Macbookpro’s, especially 2012-2014, selling so well these days. I check OWC all the time, and the older ones dont last on their website more than 2 or 3 days. And they are not giving them away… 800 $ or so with 500 gig SSD and at least 8 gigs of RAM. And I just dont understand why he fawns over a company that treats him like persona non-grata. If i liked a product, but the manufacturer treated me like crap, i might buy it but i wouldnt give them so much free advertising. Fact is…Fact always is…that everything has its plusses and minuses.
Im still looking for a mid 2012 macbookpro 16 gigs ram, 500 gig SSD, I7, quad core if they made it…and so hard to find. 13" or 16".
Also, Id like to know who you all think I can trust buying refurbed. Theres a lot of stuff on Amazon, and Amazon says they will stand behind them, but idk…The names of the refurbing companies scare me. I’ve done really well with OWC over the years, but most of the 2012’s they have are i5 processors, and they still dont last more than a few days for sale.
Also…different subject…I now am using an early 2011 macbookpro. I was able to upgrade to sierra no sweat. But it doesnt want to upgrade to high sierra, which I think its supposed to be able to do.
Any suggestions…any secrets to getting this done?
