Re: Want to buy a MBPR but afraid, have some questions

2011 MBP User


So i'm a windows user, whose been wanting to move to Mac for awhile now, and i want to get a MBPR but I've heard a couple of disheartening things about it and wanted to see if anybody here is having any of these problems.
1. Bad battery life (about 3-4 hrs) since ML update

-- hide signature --

I noticed a reduction going to ML but I install Parallels at the same time. Not an issue at all for me as I can plug in within 5 hours so I am not sure how long I am getting.. very dependent on what I am doing.

2. Image retention on display (burn-in)
--- NA

3. Constant system freezes

--- Maybe NA but absolutely no problems after 12 months... I use it 10+ hours a day and only shut down every 2-3 days.

4. Strange creaking sounds (bad build quality)
-- No way... Absolutely the best build quality... Expensive but outstanding

Just an amateur
