Hi everyone,

Im selling a 13" Unibody MBP (Macbook Pro). Its the current generation. Here are the specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26 Ghz Processor
4GB DDR3 RAM
80 GB SSD- Intel X25-M (2nd Generation!!!!)
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

This computer is in AMAZING condition. There are NO visible problems with it- the screen is PRISTINE. I have only had it for a few months- there are 30 cycles on the battery, which lasts a LONG time.

The SSD is SO ridiculously fast. I will never go back to a platter hard drive. It boots in about 18 seconds, and everything happens almost instantaneously. Intel SSDs are THE way to go.

This computer, configured from Apple, is $1,828. (With a 128 GB SSD, but not Intel X25-M)

Im looking to get rid of it, so im asking for $1650 (Lowered to $1,440 - see bottom post).


Added: This computer is under AppleCare until October 4th, 2010, and the 2 year extension is available until that date.

Price Lowered: See bottom post

I would sell the SSD separately. You're priced far above retail on the system itself. The SSD is definitely worth good money, but only to a very specific buyer.

I was thinking that as well...but couldn't confirm due to the Apple website being down.

Pictures help too. No one wants to buy an expensive piece of equipment sight unseen, particularly from a member with a very limited track record in the community.

This would seem to be a "given/no-brainer".;)

Sometimes sellers fail to put themselves in the position of the buyer...especially for such a high dollar item via the internet!

p.s. The OP did mention, "Pictures available on request, of course."...but it always helps to include them in the post regardless. Just good business.

Im looking to get rid of it, so im asking for $1650 shipped + 3% for paypal. Pictures available on request, of course.

This computer brand new from the Apple Store (with the 4 gig ram upgrade & 128gig SSD drive) costs $1699. Without the 4 gig ram upgrade & 128meg SSD drive it's $1199.

And the same computer (no 4 gig ram, no 128gig SSD drive) refurbished is $849:

Refurbished MacBook 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - Apple Store (U.S.)

Add to this a 3% Paypal fee (Boooo!:()...

p.s. Yes...tough crowd here at Mac-Forums!;)

I would sell the SSD separately too, but I dont have another hard drive and I doubt anyone wants to buy it with no hard drive.

Second, its a Pro, not a Macbook.

I have 100% feedback on ebay under aeronauticsrock and have bought and sold thousands of dollars of camera equipment on POTN.

I've looked at macbooks in the applestore but I haven't really investigated the SSD option because it's costly. Can this unit be retrofitted with a real HDD and how difficult/easy is that? Is it internal or does it fit in the SD slot? Also 80Gigs isn't much in today's world, is there any software on the machine beside the OS?

It is internal, it simply takes the place of the regular hard drive. It is very easy to change, it simply invovles taking the bottom cover off and swapping them. As for size, I have had:

OS
Office 2008
MATLAB
Photoshop
Acrobat
Indesign
10 GB of documents
15 GB of photos


all with 15 gb free. I simply store all my movies on an external HD. Other than that, everything fits (for me).


If you really dont want it, I could buy a standard hd (of your choosing) and install it for you.

And not to thread hijack, but if you buy it, I do happen to have a spare Seagate 320GB 7200rpm HDD that will fit. I'd be willing to part with it for $50. Still has about 3.5 years of warranty on it.
