    Should I buy this MacBook pro?
    We'll I have been looking for a MacBook pro for awhile not and came across this one on Craig's list:

    Up for sale i have a great condition apple macbook pro 15"
    its the newer unibody style that has silver body with BLACK keys just like the ones in stores
    i still have the original box w/ charger cables as well
    also can give a keyboard cover and a magic mouse too

    specs are
    2.4ghz
    8gb ram
    500gb hd

    softwares
    microsoft office 2011
    adobe cs5
    ilife 11
    final cut pro

    It is a model number A1286

    In a text message he told me it was a 2.53ghz processor though. What do you guys think this laptop is worth? Any major problems with this model? Please let me know. Thank you!

    Specs:
    MBP 15" 16/500/2.3GHz, iPad 4 32GB, iPhone 5 32GB
    What's the asking price? That's kind of a major factor in buying ... personally I think too many CL deals are wonky. I just picked up an outstanding deal on a MBP 15" from a seller on NBR, outstanding deal, clear communication, etc.

    He's asking 1200. That's why I asked what it is worth because I do not know what it should be going for. What is NBR?

    Specs:
    Which one?
    You can get an Apple refurbished 15" directly from Apple for $1359

    I would feel better about buying on Apple than Craigslist.

    Refurbished MacBook Pro 2.0GHz quad-core Intel i7 - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Different specs, but similar. Another advantage of buying from Apple is the warranty.

    No way...too much! Like "JimboMac" mentioned...why pay $1200 for something older...when you can get something newer from Apple for almost the same price.

    The 500gig HD & 8gig of ram are nice...but a 2.53ghz core 2 duo cpu is on the older side (compared to newer hardware) & expensive side when your talking $1200 bucks.

    I figured he was asking too much. I wasn't going to pay him $1200 I was going to offer him less I just didn't know what to offer. I was looking at that Mac on apples site. Maybe I will hold off for a refurbished one.
