Have you ever seen great looking Mac Pro Book reviews on Amazon.com, and then jumped to the last pages only to find 20 horrible ones? The very first consumer review pages are great, ratings and all, but what happened to those few people who got so unlucky? I’m here to help you not end up like one of them.
What’s the Problem? I thought Macs Were Great!
The problem is, many people are so quick to click “buy” nowadays they fail to read descriptions, consumer reviews, seller feedback, and warranty information thoroughly enough before they make their purchases. This is where most of the ugly, uglier, and the ugliest reviews come from on Amazon.com that make you not want to purchase them at all online.
1. First, if you’re going to buy a Mac Pro book for less than half the price it would usually cost, there is a possibility it was refurbished, used, or have no software installed on it whatsoever. Read your descriptions as carefully as possible and make sure the seller has good enough consumer feedback before you put your trust into them.
2. Second, there’s nothing wrong with buying a used or refurbished MacBook Pro, however, if you’re going to buy one for a very low price, get a good warranty!
3. Third, check your shipping information before you buy. There is no point in buying a MacBook Pro for a discount when the shipping price costs 2 arms and 3 legs.
4. Finally, take this information and analyze the consumer reviews reasonably.
Example of How to Use this Info While Reading the Great & Ugly Reviews
Person A, knows nothing about this information and sees a Mac Pro book review on Amazon.com stating, “Macs are the best, my purchase went great, and everything came on time at my front door!”
That same person sees a MacBook Pro for half the price of a regular MacBook Pro however, doesn’t carefully read the description, seller feedback, or warranty information, and a broken MacBook arrives at their front door 2 months later. Person A, leaves a bad review!
Person B, read that same exact great review on Amazon.com that Person A read however, decided to read a few other Amazon consumer reviews before purchasing.
Person B realizes that most of the bad reviews came from consumers who had misread information in the description, seller feedback, shipping information, shipping time, and warranty information. This person received their MacBook Pro two days later and wrote a great review.
Conclusion of Example
Person A gets an “F,” dropped their “A” and Person B caught it!
