    Just got a new macbook pro anyone with bad experience?

    It was time to upgrade from my old bar of soap macbook of 8 years.

    Compusmart was blowing out the 500 gig flash drive 13.5 pros and I got a sweet deal, got the last one.

    It sure starts/loads up fast and the transition was a pain, just because my time machine was working but the disc was unrepairable.. and I had to buy a new slave to repeat the backup.

    After that it was seamless. so far it is lighting fast and without a hitch..

    Anyone ever have a flash drive system fail? I think it would be disastrous if you didn't do a backup,,, Am I wrong?

    I have 4 Mac Book Pros in the office and they are all used daily especially mine and my assistants. I just bought a new one as the other one was almost 5 years old. Zero issues for all lap tops. Would never go back to a PC

    Re: Just got a new macbook pro anyone with bad experience?

    i used an external backup for my time machine. every once in a while I would get a message that the disk was n't repairable.. I ignored it, but when I tried to restore to my new macbook pro, it wouldn't do anything.
    I got lucky there, so I bought one of those western digital My passport for mac drives. It's a 1TB flash drive.

    I did backup through passport, and it restored my new pro to the older unit's settings. It's just like I never changed computers, except for the new OS.. Pretty schlick. It is about

    the size of a pack of smokes and uses a usb for data and power. No more plugging power in anything, it's quiet too.

    Here is a pic of one, mine is only ⅜" thick though.
