Macbook Pro 13" - 400 (+P&P)

Curry's will give 400 trade in for this laptop as I've just bought the new retina/flash version but I have to send it off then wait up to a month for the cash!

So, I just thought I'd try you peeps and see if someone wanted to benefit from buying it at my trade-in price plus whatever it costs me to post it to you (which is exceedingly cheap for what it is). It'll probably be less hassle and quicker for me in the end than trading it in!

It's approx 18 months old (2011 model A1278 / MC700B/A if either of those number mean anything to you?), it's in good condition with just a couple of knocks on the aluminium case as you'd expect of a well-used 18m old machine. It runs well, the keys, trackpad and screen are like new and the hard drive is under a year old as it was replaced under warranty when the machine was just a few months old last Christmas.

I reckon postage will be around 15 or less so let me know....first come, first served

Hi all....as you can imagine, I've had quite a bit of interest in this given the price. Apologies but I've been out this evening so have been slow responding to PM's. Everyone should have been responded to by now.

I've had a few questions re the condition and those that know me will know that I'm a perfectionist. Therefore, when I say it has a few knocks, I am being particularly fussy and if you didn't know they were there, you'd not notice them. If you expect a 'new' machine then with the greatest respect, you can still buy a 'new' machine Remember - this is a 400 Macbook Pro, it still costs 900 new and the condition of my Macbook is as 'new' as you'll get without buying a new one.

I've taken a few pictures to show the condition and in the final picture I've tried to show the 2-3 slight indents in the top, caused by putting the laptop in a case right next to the plug and then leaning it on the plug...doh!) They're so minor that the camera just couldn't pick them up but, if you can spot them, they're in the top left hand quarter of the laptop!

It comes boxed, with the charger and appropriate set up disc. The spec as per the sticker on the box is:

Macbook Pro 13.3" A1278 (MC700B/A)
2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor,
4GB of 1333MHx DDr3 SDRAM
320GB 5400-rpm hard drive


Also please note that I sold my previous Macbook to a member of this forum - I can't remember exactly who it was now but looking at this thread, I think it was Boyd1963 so please feel free to PM him if you want a 'reference'.

However, given I've priced this to sell immediately and with little hassle, I'm looking to close this down tomorrow before I progress with trading it in / advertising on eBay (depending how bothered I can be to make a few extra quid on eBay) so the first person to make payment by bank transfer (or Paypal if you pay the charges) will have it posted to them as soon as payment has cleared.

I've just checked the postage cost and fully insured, it's 30 to anywhere in the UK on a next day service.

Well that didn't take long....offer has been made and I'm just awaiting payment for it. Therefore for the time being, it's now sold.

If the situation changes, I'll update here first.

Andrew, I just wish you had PM'd me first as I would have had this one as well. As you stated I bought your last MacBook and I can confirm that it was like new and is still going strong. My wife is using it as I type this. I would have no hesitation buying from you again.

Guys....it's all paid for and despatched. I knew it wouldn't hang around long at that price - I hope the new owner is as happy as the last person I sold a Macbook to.

And on that note, Boyd, I'm sorry for not PM'ing you first - I really didn't think you'd want another one off me so soon. You will have first refusal of my new Macbook Pro Retina when I get rid of it in (the now routine) 18 months time I can guarantee one thing though....I won't be selling it for 400 given it cost more than double what I've ever paid for a laptop previously!

I've got to say....this new retina version is the danglies. Having a flash rather than hard drive is a revelation - it's so fast! The sound from the built-in speakers is also noticeably better and the display, when looking at really high-def pictures, is unreal - everything is just so, so smooth with not a visible pixel in sight, even if you look really hard!

I'll hold you to that offer.
