Okay, I've just about had it with my latest Mac. I am the (not so proud) owner of a MacBook Pro 2012 15 inch 2.3ghz Intel Core i7 with 4GB ram running 10.8.5. And just my luck just out of warranty. This shit has been building up for a while. I already own a few Macs from years ago and this is the first time I have had to post this stuff.
Aperture runs too slowly.... beach ball most tasks. Just lost a shed load of photos that I imported earlier in the day. Couldn't get the software to display individual pics. Just a list of pics. (yes I know how to use the damn thing) so I restarted and the whole project is now blank. Bugs bugs. F+@$ I hate Aperture!
iTunes runs like a pig at times. Freaking thing beach balls when i'm trying to do more than one thing at a time. CD ripping is hit and miss too. Some original Cds are just not recognised by the drive (happens mostly with compilation CDs) and are spat out, some are seen as blank media when actually they are pre-burned music CD's. Play perfectly well on a CD player. At times i get serious vibration from the CD drive when burning discs. Terrible noise.
Safari freezes at times and refuses to scroll then comes back.
Overheats when im charging and viewing YouTube/video media and/or playing music, maybe Safari running too. Fans are way up past 2100rpm.
Ping.. ping from the base when things get toasty. ??
Fan noise vibration (whirring like a card on spokes of a wheel) from left fan sometimes.
Connecting to my Sony SRSBTM8 bluetooth speaker - No problems with my iPhone 4. Beautiful sound and no drop outs. With this MacBook... dropouts and clicks all the time! Click, click. click. WTF? Range is crap too.
BTW.. build quality on this thing just ain't up to par. The screen doesn't quite match the base, bit of awkward mm overhang on one side. Just enough to make it ugly.
Just about ready to give up.
