Reliability of the macbook pro 13-inch retina

So I bought recently a 2015 macbook pro retina 13inch w from best buy. Ive heard nothing else nothing but great things about these machines and it reliability is pretty good, especially from what consumer reports said.

So my questions, yes I know its how you take care of it and other things, but how long I would be able to see out of him? I bought applecare for the 3 years to have the kind of peace of mind, if something goes wrong.

But I am a student I am on that for probably 8 hours a day, do not do stuff very heavy but don't like to play a few games on it from steam nothing really big or anything like that, and then I want to edit videos. Editing and games is probably once or twice a week especially just web browsing and school documents

I'm just a little paranoid, because I came from a dell inspiron 14r who crashed after 2 years later and I never really have a lot of video editing (fact 4, 5 min videos lol) on it and not play games. I have just web browsing, and it was nothing but a fight with problems.

I just want bad use it much and do much more things on it like ediitng videos, games and just curious to know how well it will hold up to?

But with the applecare as long as I don't spill something on it or drop it, they cover everything other then the battery from what ive read


Some 2007 models that still work as web browsers.  My 2011 MBP works always, strong but unlikely if do heavy software development I would get a new system for the best processor.

Don't be surprised that your system is "officially obsolete" (comes five years after the particular model is officially replaced) before it stops working.

  • Update of the Macbook Pro 13 inch i7 (mid-2012) worm.

    Dear Apple community


    I would like to know your opinion about the upgrade to the Macbook Pro 13 inch (mid-2012) i7 2.9 worm. by the following:

    1. replace the stock HARD 750 GB to a Samsung EVO 850 SSD 1 TB drive in the link below

    cm_cr_pr_product_top ie = UTF8

    2. replace the stock RAM memory which is 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) in the link below p/B008LTBJFW/ref = sr_1_1? ie = UTF8 & qid = 1450...

    I know that apple says that 8GB is the maximum RAM.

    is it OK to do? ? (System and stability not wise not hardware wise)

    will I have problems with the system after the upgrade? ?

    I had done a lot of research about this, but am not sure yet.

    your help is highly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Best regards

    I would avoid the Samsung SSD.  If you analyze these forums, many users have experienced difficulties with the Samsung SSD.  (Some are not)  Note that Samsung is unable to talk about Mac compatibility on their web site.  I think what to say.

    I can recommend Crucial SSD based on my experience in the installation of three of them in my Mbps.   OWC SSDS have an excellent reputation.

    I support the Crucial RAM.  I have 16 GB of Crucial RAM installed in two of my Mbps.  16 GB of RAM should present no problems for your MBP.  OWC is also a great salesman of RAM Mac compatible.


  • You can improve the macbook pro 15 inch 2015 logic board

    I am the proud owner of a macbook pro mid 2015, 15-inch retina display 2.2 Ghz i7 (integrated graphics).

    I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade dedicated to one with the graphics card logic board or is there a compatibility issue?

    I know that the macbook pro with dedicated graphics card is the same size and all that one that I have so I was wondering if the logic boards are the same size.

    I hope this isn't a stupid question.

    I'm sorry. After the purchase, upgrade of the internal components is not possible.

    If you wish, you can sell the Mac you have and buy another Mac with the specifications you want.

  • Update of the Macbook Pro 13 inch mid 2012


    I im experiencing some major performance issues on my Mac Book Pro 13 mid 2012 thumb and would really like to move to 16 GB of memory Ram and an SSD.

    That someone has or has had experience with the mise a niveau of this model... or the upgrade in general and running on some issues.

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated.


    Assuming that it is a model identifier 9.2, it will accept the 16 GB of RAM and an SSD will improve its overall performance.  The best sources for RAM compatible Macs are OWC and Crucial.  Based on reputation and personal experience, OWC and Crucial get my nod for SSDS as well.

    You will need to decide if the higher cost for one SSD worth it. compared to a classic HARD disk if the bank account is fat, do.  I have.


  • Problems with the MacBook Pro 15 GPU retina

    Hi, I had a lot of trouble with my computer lately. When I run intense jobs GPU, the computer just stops. I managed to work around this problem by changing the settings of my software. The problem got worse and now the computer doesn't turn on. He goes on an infinite loop. I know is a hardware problem because when applying some pressure to the bottom of the computer it lights. Is there a way I can disable by order Nvidia card so at least I can turn on my computer and work?

    Thanks in advance.


    That looks like a hardware problem. You must run the hardware Apple (AHT) Test to see if it can find errors with the material.

    You can find instructions here: using Apple Hardware Test - Apple Support

    You will most likely need an Apple Genius appointment at your local Apple store to have this problem.

    Good luck!

  • MacBook pro 13 inch retina 2014 heating abnormally

    its very random and I can't replicate. I was in warranty and and the centre for apple (India) said that even they cannot replicate we waited 2 hours doing heavy programs just to check but nothing happened and I didn't pay a lot of attention because it was random, now its off to control what are my options?

    the heat is very intense and feels like it will explode at any moment

    Bring her back. If there is a warranty support ticket, they should always honour the fact there is a problem.

  • battery drains while the macbook pro is in sleep

    I have a Macbook Pro 13 inch, retina.  About 6 months.

    Problem: Battery drains about 4%-5% per hour or more, while the computer is in sleep.  Which means that if I go to bed with the 30% battery charge, I'll wake up to a dead computer.

    It started to happen about 2 weeks ago.  I already brought to an authorized, who ran the diagnostics.  Initially he failed cooling system test, but he re-greased the sink 'fan', and supposedly he passed all the tests.  But battery still absurdly quickly.

    I tried to reset the SMC, by someone on the suggestion of this forum, but didn't seem to help.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated!

    Bring it for repair.  Your MBP has a warranty for which you paid the money.  Use the warranty.


  • Best case for Macbook Pro 13 inch with Retina display

    I was wondering what the best case was for my purchase of a Macbook Pro 13 inch with the retina display. I am a student of the school and will walk to school with her in a compartment of my bag. It might be high everywhere, but he must be not so bulky that I also have school books. Any suggestion?

    If you are specifically looking for a shell, then I recommend the INCASE ones, just go to the apple store and get my things for Mac they have a feeling of fluidity buttered and are pleasant to the touch - as the Apple trackpad - it simply snaps on and snaps off when you want off the coast.  If you are looking for a Holster, I recommend the slim sleeve incase.  It has a soft interior for your mac are not destroyed (its aluminium-what worries you - you did you buy Care, haven't you?) and has a spot for the port of loading.

    I hope this helps!

  • How to connect an old 23 "Cinema Display to a MacBook Pro 15 inch with Retina display

    I have an old 23 "Cinema HD Display, part number M9178LL/A and want to connect it to a recent MacBook Pro 15 inch with Retina display 2104.

    The Cinema Display has a power adapter and 3 USB, Firewire connectors and a DVI (think that's what it's called).

    The MacBook Pro has USB, Thunderbolt, and HDMI ports.  I have a crush on Firewire adapter, but I don't know what I need to plug the DVI or if it will work.

    I also remember that years ago Apple sold "docks", so that you can use your laptop with a keyboard and a standard monitor.  Is this always the case?

    If anyone can help?

    Thank you very much.

    Adapt you the Thunderbolt computer monitor DVI connection (use a Mini DisplayPort adapter) or HDMI port. USB and FireWire connections are only needed if you plan to use the screen as a hub.
