For sale is the family MacBook Pro as we have upgraded to a 15” and this is now surplus to requirements.

Mid 2010 A1278 MacBook Pro 13” 2.4 GHz core 2 duo.

8GB Ram

500GB Seagate Hybrid Hard Drive.

Correct spec box (not the original), relevant discs and cleaning cloth.

It is in decent well loved condition. A few age related marks on the case which are commensurate with age.

if you are looking for brand new and mint this is not for you. It is in very tidy condition for its age and would be perfect as a first laptop for the kids.

The screen looks unmarked and the backlight functions as it should.

It all works perfectly with no faults that I can find.

The CD/DVD works as it should as does the camera, trackpad and speakers.

The keyboard works perfectly and has no missing keys.

Battery is showing 162 cycles, 85% Good health.

Running OS X Sierra.

Aftermarket charger.

The original Apple charger has the usual worn cable so I will include it for spares and repairs only.

This is the last of the truly upgradeable and repairable MacBooks.

Collection is preferred but I will post if required. Delivery cost is NOT included.

Will consider offers.

How well does it run?
Does it hang at all at start up or whilst using basic applications, such as mail or web browsing?

Hi
My son was the main user and it was fine for homework and normal applications. His main gripe was that it is not a gaming machine !
Let me fire it up and check it.

Hi have fired it up and it seems to be fine.
it takes about 30 seconds to boot from chime to log on screen and from logging on to desktop 2 or 3 seconds.
Applications open quickly with only a second or so delay.
I have a video of the boot up and opening applications.
I can email it to you if you would like to see it.

I am just concerned over if it is slow to run, whilst executing emails, web browsing and basic word processing. If you have something that shows these in operation, that would be good. Also if you can confirm the battery holds a charge, when left. Thanks

Hi
For what you describe it’s fine. Battery was showing good and 85% on battery app.
it may be better if you viewed it - then you could have a proper test drive so to speak.
if you pm me your email I can send you a couple of videos.

Would you accept £175, subject to a mutual meet up (no rush when) and the unit running satisfactory when tried.

Hi Jonny
Thanks for the offer and sorry for the delay.
Can you let me think on it?
I have had a higher offer offsite (plus delivery) which I am considering. I would however as always prefer where I can to deal with a fellow AVF member.
Can I come back to you this evening as I am out all day?
Should have said the meet up and and timeframe aspect is fine.

Hi Jonny,
Thanks for your patience, are you able to improve on your offer at all ?
I am just trying to make this work for me but am struggling somewhat at present.

I am sorry but for me, I do not feel it is worth more, being a 2010 unit showing some signs of wear. I am happy to bow out and leave it so you can accept the other offer. All the best and thank you for responding to the requests for information.

I understand, it would be a shame as I dont think you would be unhappy with it, would you be able to view it here ?

Not sure at the moment, will keep an eye on the thread and if the opportunity arises will let you know. Visa versa if you travel down this way, let me know. Thanks
