    Looking for such a laptop for my son. Nothing fancy required but budget is key.

    Would love a Pro but likely to be older so a MacBook or Air more likely.

    What you got? Thanks.

    Mac Book Pro 2009 too old?

    All boxed up and think its in good nic but will need too check. Does need a new battery though so I could do a bit of a bargain for you.

    Here's the original spec (from Apple receipt so owned since new) and if there is genuine interest I can take some pics tonight. Had it customer built at the time to highest spec at a cost of over £1700 back then

    [​IMG]
    Number Product Description Quantity Price Estimated ship
    Z0GR MBP 15.4/CTO £1,491.93 excluding VAT
    2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB 1066Mz DDR3 SDRM-2x2GB
    320GB Serial ATA @ 7200


    Given that it needs a battery (£30-£60 if you shop around) I would offer it at £120 plus delivery

    Any good?

    Yikes! Thats alot of money back then!!
    Its tempting just in terms of how it could be upgraded but note its a 15" so gonna be rather heavy for an 8 year old... I think an Air is probably better... Thank though

    I'm thinking £200 but if you get a chance to come up to Cambridge city, then inspect at will... Runs macOS High Sierra and comes with a charger. Only selling due to lack of use.

    CEX should give you a better idea of what the pricing one can expect. Cheers,

    CEX prices are all out of kilter eBay gives a better view of trending prices if you want to compare.
