Why we recommend the MD101
The Mid 2012 MacBook Pro 13” 2.5 Ghz, Core i5 with 4GB RAM is in my opinion the best unit to purchase today for individuals on a tight budget or for those who plan to do upgrades to their machine later.
To get it out of the way, this machine is a non-retina unit, which means it has a lower resolution, yes; it is bulky, so with that out of the way, lets get started.
This unit comes standard with a Thunderbolt port, 2X USB 3 ports, a Firewire 800 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port and a SDXC Card slot. Wow, what a choice! Retina units don’t have Firewire nor Gigabit Ethernet ports. The added bonus is the SuperDrive (DVD/CD Writer)
The md101 is a fully upgradeable unit. You can upgrade the RAM (Retina MacBook Pro’s RAM is not upgradeable) and the Hard Drive (Retina Hard Drive upgrades very costly). This unit can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM and with an SSD Drive this machine would out perform most Macs purchased at a much higher premium.
The MD101 is fully supported at The Apple Centre, we have staff ready to assist with any queries you have on this unit.
