I just got my 2015 grade A refurbished Macbook Pro in the mail yesterday. It has 2.8 GHz and it seems slightly slow to me, so I checked using black magic disk speed test. The write speed is about 760 mb/s and the read speed is about 735 mb/s. I don't know much about computers, but based on youtube video's I've watched, this seems slow in comparison.

Also last night, when I was personalizing my computer by downloading apps and transferring all my music and pictures onto the computer, it started blowing fans that sounded like a waterfall. I had it sitting on m kitchen table, so it should have been getting good airflow. I just wanted to check if this was normal or if I got a low quality refurbished computer.
Thanks,
Jenny

I'm not familiar with Mac computers. Having said that, cpu speed is not an indication of HDD speed. HDD speed is largely determined by the HDD type and speed. You can place 6 different HDD's into that PC and get 6 different results of that benchmark test. If you want faster disk speed, get a faster HDD.

Sounds normal to me. When you were done with the activities and the unit was idle, the fans should have slowed and gotten quieter. Some models are nosier than others. I've had some that I could hardware ever hear, and some that were quite loud, as it appears that unit is.
